That is the error code for the laser being bad. It is a very difficult job to replace one.

You can try cleaning the lens with a cleaning disc, run it for about 20 to 30 seconds and if that doesn't help the laser will need to be replaced.

These are very good car stereos, Panasonic makes some of the best car stereos around. It may be the only thing they make really good. So it may be worth it to you to get it fixed. The cost should be around $130 give or take a little depending on the cost of the part and the rates of the shop.

I have been repairing car and home audio for over 17 years and work at an authorized Panasonic service center. So I have lots of experience with these.

If you need any help, just ask. And if you found this information helpful a "FixYa" rating would be really appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

I have a panasonic cd player..CQ-DF602U and its shows a code across the screen CD-E1...what does this mean and it wont play cds


E1 = Disk is dirty, or is upside down. Also the disk may have a format that the player cannot read. If this occurs with all your disks, move to the next step.
Try one of those CD lens cleaning kits. They are just typically a CD with a little brush attached to the underside of the disk to try gently and wipe the lens. You could also try re-setting the whole deck by removing it from the dashboard. The jiggling might knock something back into place. (Don't forget to disconnect it first and make sure the power is off!).

If you still receive the error code or the cd ejects automatically briefly after being inserted, the head unit needs to be repaired or replaced.

When cd isinserted it does not start to play but show E-1 on screen


E1 = Disk is dirty, or is upside down. A disk has data other than CD-DA, MP3, or WMA has been loaded.

I'd try some other CD's, and if that doesn't work, I'd try one of those cheap CD lens cleaning kits. Try re-setting the whole deck (disconnected power).

If you receive an error reading or the cd ejects automatically briefly after being inserted, the headunit needs to be repaired or replaced.

Good luck.

Don't know if this will help, but with my panasonic CQ-C8300N there are 4 error messages, all to do with CDs.

They are as follows:

CD E1 - Disc is dirty, or upside down.
CD E2 - Disc has scratches.
CD E3 - No operation by some cause! - see your dealer.
CD E4 - The file is not readable.

From my panasonic manual.

The heat is normal due to the large output IC's Panasonic uses. You need to get a "Laser Lens Cleaner" one that uses fluid. You can find them at just about any retail store these days for 15-20. Run it thru a couple times and hope that's the magic bullet to fix the issue, otherwise it needs service at a cost of 100-150 on average. If the cleaner does the trick, make it a habbit of cleaning your player every 3mos or 3000 mi. It truly is the best preventative maintanance on any CD/DVD/PC etc.! Hope this helps
