Every one of those Kenwoods that I have fixed with that error needed the laser pick up replaced. so there is no easy fix for it.

If you have tried several disc's and they all have a TOC err, and you know the disc's are in decent condition, then you will need the pick up replaced.

First try cleaning the disc you are using. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel, it works great at getting fingerprints and other stuff off the disc without scratching the disc. A bad fingerprint or a bad scratch right at the innermost part of the disc (where the TOC is located) will cause any CD player to not read the TOC, producing a TOC ERROR. you never know, you might get lucky.

    I've got a MP242 I just bought from eBay that worked well for a second then the CD player started giving the TOC ERR. Where can I buy the lens module? I'm familiar with repairing electronics. Is it expensive?

    I just bought a MP242 from eBay. Worked well for a second then started displaying the TOC ERR. How much is the optical pickup module and where online can I buy it? I'm familiar with replacing parts with electronics.

TOC eror


The TOC error is the same error seen on computer disks, TOC is the table of content, this has to be read before the the unit will know the details of tracks etc......

If every disk inserted (not just burned discs) has this error, the laser is faulty or out of alignment. Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Toc code keeps comeing up on my kenwood kdc x5589


Hi, toc error means that the laser is struggling to read the Table of Contents which tells the unit where all the information is on the disc, it may be something as simple as the lens needs cleaning or something as complicated as the laser needs replacing, but you could try running a cd disc cleaner through it first. Good luck......

Toc error


toc error means "table of contents" error... means the player is unable to read the disc at all. May have a dirty focal lense to laser. clean gently with some windex on a cotton wool bud. It may be a faulty spindle motor that spins the disc. the bearings get worn or uneven and do not allow for disc reading to be successful. a check for this is a drop of oil to the bearing. It may then start to read discs, but will still require the motor to be replaced. . Check for the above... but if there is more required, take it to a Kenwood 'Agent... it may need a laser change

TOC error


toc stands for table of contents error if it is a copied cd it is probably how it was written if not do other cds work?

the easiest option is to replace the complete mechanism otherwise it involves stripping down the mechanism to determine if there are any parts of the mech snapped which can happen as it's mainly plastic

What does toc err mean?


TOC is table of contents. Typically if its on a recorded cd try burning a cd from antoher computer and try it, if it works its most likely that your burner or software or ccd's your using are bad. Also is it a MP3 disc your trying to play? If so then you MUST burn it as a MP3 cd. You cant just burn MP3's to a CD and it read them. If this is the case thats why you are getting the TOC error because its not writing to the CD whats on the CD on the TOC area of the disc.
