Question about Kenwood Car Speakers & Subwoofers

Hello, Hi Kenwood KDC-C717 cd changer has displayed error-99. I think it may be a stuck cd. When pressing the eject button, the motor sounds, but cannot eject the 10 disc loader. Can you help? Cheers, Jon

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comments. I stripped out the mechanism, seemed the motor hadn't reset it's self. I pushed it back home with my fingers, plugged it in a again & hey presto! it worked.

    Now to get those strings and funky shock absorbing gromits back home. That could be the hard part.

    Thanks alot, good work.

    Jon.

The loading mechanism is either out of timing and has jammed or there is a disc that slipped out of the tray that has jammed it. In either case, the unit must be dis-assembled and rebuilt. This is not a repair I'd suggest you attempt without a service manual. The rebuild must be done in the proper order and in the corrct position in order for the timing to be correct. It is rare for parts to be required for this type of problem. Check with a local servicer for the cost to repair.

    I forgot to add that resetting the unit is not likely to fix this. Also, the drive belt may need to be changed as well.

    Seems to be a cd stuck or it is broken inside the changer, all you need to do is take the changer out and get it opened manually which you can do it your self this will save $$$$ and its pretty easy to fix,

My in-car cdc will not eject the cartridge?.


Press the eject button several times non stop.Like 10 to 15 times non stop and see,if the cartridge is getting ejected out.If its still stuck,then disconnect the car battery negative terminal for 15 minutes then reconnect the negative terminal and heck.If still the cartridge is stuck,then its problem with internal mechanism.You will have to disassemble the unit and manually eject the cartridge out and lubricate internal mechanism.-------------- Unplug the changer and use a flat metal ruler.And slide it alongside the cartridge. try sliding on both sides. You'll eventually trigger the manual switch and it'll pop out.Bif that is also not helping then:--- solution is to disassemble the CD changer and lubricating the mechanisms inside. This is the most common problem with CD changers. Take the unit out of car and try to release disc manually.Take the screws out on both sides of player then remove case . You will be able to manually push the big gear so that the disc goes back into the cartridge. And then it slides out. After that you lube all moving parts with a teflon grease and some parts with silicon spray. This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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.

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.
