I have the same problem. When you turn it, after a while it justs displays "ERROR". I opened the player and I think the player is stuck on the left hand of the interior. When I lift the lever on the front of the player it starts moving, but on returning to the same place it gets stuck again. I checked to see if any items were broken but that does not seem to be the problem. I suspect that it is caused by worn out items. Any suggestions, does Technics still support this player?

Replace the small drive belt on the inside cover back left of the unit. It's easy to do - just a tight space. Take the old belt, which looks like a rubber band, to a stereo repair shop and they can sell you a new belt.

You are correct. The head unit is not moving. The problem is a little drive belt that is worn/streched. I have the same problem. I don't know where to get a replacement.

    I have just used an old bicycle tube ( I have cut a 1mm slice first but it was too thin, I have then cut a 3 mm slice) to replace the little black belt and so far so good (third track in random mode...).

My cds are stuck in the player. They won't play or eject. The message reads "cd error"


Hi Texasgirl826,
There is nothing I can tell you to do that won`t damage the player.

I have one sugestion, go to a shop that installs car stereo, don`t go into the store, go to the bay where the workshop is and ask one of the installers real nice like if he could take it out for you, I`m sure he would.
It is a bit tricky to do it, but it can be done, without having to remove the deck and taking it apart.
Good luck.

When i press cd on my radio it constantly says reading on the screen but no sound is coming out.i have a classic beetle and it needs music


The problem normally is to the reading head. You have to open the player find the head and clean it with a cotton stick very gently. Then try to listen a cd. If it works it's ok, or else your head is broken and you have to replace it thing that I am not suggesting because of the high cost of the head.

CD Changer not reading CDs


2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix.
p.s :
1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it.
2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up.
Good luck.

CD changer will not play reads "player error" .


Most new car-stereo's don't have an "oldschool" CD-drive, but really a CD-ROM drive; meaning that they won't (properly) read and/or play copy-protected CDs.

Most CD protections are specially designed not to work in CD-ROM drives to prevent copying. As a side-effect most of those protected CDs won't work in car-stereo's.

Try a CD without copy-protection (like an homemade audio CD using burning software on your computer) and see it that works ?

In case that doesn't work either, your car's CD-drive is probably broken ...

CDAC ER2


CDAC ER2 usually means a cd is stuck, not reading properly, or that the magazine is stuck or broken. take out all cds and try it with a known good cd (one that played ok in the past). if that doesn't work, try unplugging the unit and plugging it back in.

if it still doesnt work, take the magazine out, power it up so that you get the "no mag" error, then insert the magazine with no discs and see if it still errors out with ER2. if it does, then the magazine is bad, or the changer is bad..

if it works, then try the known good disc again, if it works now, your magazine was probably stuck, or one of the other cd's isn't liked by the changer.

hope this helps,
trin
