These changers have a problem with some switches that are on top of the cd mech. They must be cleaned with the proper chemical and not too much being used. You can easily spill it into the cd mech where the laser is at and cause a lot of damage to the laser.
There are micro switches that detect the position of the disc tray going into and out of the magazine and when the cd mech actually loads the cd into position to play it.

When you turn your car off and back on again, it reset the micro enough to where it can start over again.

This is not a job for anybody who is not experienced with this type of work, you could try, but then it is very likely you could cause more damage to the changer than when you started.

I can offer you more help if you like, let me know.

If you found this information helpful a rating of "FixYa" would really be appreciated.

Thnaks,

Personally I would just replace the radio. In dash changers go bad easily and are basically just a problem waiting to happen. The average life span of an in dash changer is about two years.

My Infinity 6 CD Player (2007 KIA Rondo) "displays Error 21" when you try to play, eject or change a CD. Does anyone know what this is?


Personally, if it were me, I would replace your indash changer with an aftermarket single disc player. Indash changers are notoriously unreliable and go bad very easily.

I hav a clarion auto cd/stereo displaying err 6 please explain, thank you


Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD.
Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination.
Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable.
Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM.
Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.

For error code 6:
Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!

I have a 6 disc pioneer CD player that will not play or eject the case of CD's? It trys but nothing happens.


This sometimes happens when you put two disc's in one tray. If it's not locked in the loaded position then you can take a thin piece of plastic (as thin as a credit card but longer, five inches or so) or the equivilant (like that impossible to open without cutting yourself plastic packaging) and slide it underneath the 6 disc cartridge. You need to work it in and out, eventually you will hit the release mechanisim.
If a disc is loaded then it won't work and you need to dissasemble the changer and manually retract the disc.

Have a Blaupunkt AM FM Radio/In-Dash Ch Cgnager (6 stacker) in a 2003 Holden Commodore. After ejecting the 6th one of the CD's succesfully, get "CD Error mech" message and it will not eject the...


We eventually tried loading another CD to fill the one vacant spot we knew was in the changer even though we'd tried that before without success. This time it seems that we fluked it just as it was trying to eject CD 1 again and - somehow - the CD we were tryng to insert must have lifted the rim of the one that was stuck and it suddenly ejected. The remaining 4 CD's that were inside the changer but not even recognised, then started re-loading so it appears that they were all jammed up together. Once they'd reloaded we were able to eject them all successfully then reload.
We're not sure but think that it may have happened when the eject button was originally pressed once to eject CD 6 then, in error, held down for a 'eject all' procedure and the changer has become confused with both instructions.

Error 3 displayed for 2005 4-runner jbl 6-disc changer.Won't eject cd's. Any solution?


Turn your car on. Take a pen and press the reset button located on the disc changer. Hold for about 30 seconds and try it again.
