Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Radio Display shows an error code E DC. When looking at manuel, it indicates that something would be inside CD compartment. Radio/CD was and has been working fine. It was working perfect 30 minutes prior to getting out of car and then trying to restart disc when re-entering car; I received that error code. The orginial CD that I was listening to was still in the compartment. I hadn't even changed the CD. What are your thoughts on the problem? Is this a dealer situation or just maybe a fuse?

    i have the same problem, but ive had my radio replaced once, and the issue is still occuring, im thinking there may be a short in the wiring or something? i dont know anything about this but the stupid dealership didnt seem to know much either and they said they dont fix radios...they just replace them which is what they did the first time. if its an electrical problem, they cant tell me how long its going to be for them to fix. i hear a pop pop in the back speakers and then see E-DC but it happens intermittently, if its going to work it works, and if it breaks, it will either work or not when i restart the car. if it decides to work it will be fine, if not no amount of times of restarting the car seems to make it work again until it decides it will start working again the next day. i dont know what to a single mother and i cant be without a car. ive only got 25k on this stupid thing. FRUSTRATING!!!

It is not a fuse, if it were a fuse, the radio would most likely not turn on at all.

This problem you are having is something that would require a professional to repair.

Many times when any type of electonics have a failure, they are working fine just prior to the failure. A component could be on the brink of failure and when the unit gets turned on, that initial charge when powering up can trigger a failure.

If money is an issue, you may want to find a service center that repairs this type of radio instead of taking it to a dealer, unless it is under the warranty.
If it is not under warranty, a dealer may charge you more to fix it than it would cost to purchase a new aftermarket stereo. They are very expensive.

Let me know if I can be any more help to you.

My odyssey 2003 is showing code err for the entertainment

Does the radio work at all. or is the cd player the only issue.? most of the time you need to enter a radio code to unlock the radio. If you enter it wrong to many times it will display error on the display.if you dont know the code then you can call the dealership and get the code after you do the following below to get the serial number.
Press and hold 1 and 6 on the radio while still holding the 1 and 6 press the power button. At this time it will read off serial number

I just purchased a 1999 Explorer. I am looking for the code to change the keyless entry for the doors. It says in the book that it is taped to the computer module. Where is it? Also, the display on the...

Keyless entry code can be found in the rear of the vehicle...driver side tire jack compartment...look on the computer module inside the compartment & it should be on a sticker there.

Radio display is controlled by the dimmer switch -(the round mousewheel looking thing by the steering column) fiddle with that & see if that brings the display back.

I entered radio reset code for 2002 civic now the clock flashes and will not allow me to adjust it. How to solve this problem

Okay, I'm assuming that you were sucessful in resetting your radio code.
I'm also assuming that you have a CD player (which may not be the case).
The flashing clock also functions as an error code indicator. It should say something, indicating what the error is. You can't set the clock until the error is resolved (a disc stuck in the CD player, for example, on no disc in the CD when it's been told to play).
The procedure is as follows (which you probably know):
The audio system display usually shows the time when the ignition switch is in ACCESSORY (I) or ON (II). It shows the operation mode of the radio, cassette player, or optional CD player/changer when you operate them, then goes back to the time display after five seconds.
If an error occurs while operating the optional CD player or changer, the display will keep showing the error code and will not switch to the time display until the error is corrected. You can set the time only when the clock is displayed.
To set the hours, press the H (Preset 4) button while pressing the CLOCK (SCAN/RPT) button. Press and hold the H button until the hour advances to the desired time.
To set the minutes, press the M (Preset 5) button while pressing the CLOCK (SCAN/RPT) button. Press and hold the M button until the minutes numbers advance to the desired time.

If you don't have a CD player, or no error is showing in the clock read-out, leave a comment so I can investigate further.
Hope this helps you.

Radio/cd player 2001 honda prelude shows "error."

Look in your owner manuel for a radio code, should be a 5 diget code. If you try to put wrong numbers in the stereo more than three or four times the radio will lock up. If you can't find the code call the dealer with the vin# and they should be able to tell you over thier computer. Another way to find the code is hold number 1 and 6 at the same time for 10 seconds and it will bring up a code that you will have to right down, that code will get your password for your stereo when you call the Honda Dealer. If your stereo does lock up just take your battery cables off and hold the red and black one together for 30 seconds and this will reset your radio.

Error Codes

I've had a friend to stay who had this problem. I downloaded the user manual from the internet and the error code is not mentioned. I followed the procedure to reset the radio and this solved the problem.

Take the cover off the stereo and locate the small hole (towards the centre) which houses the reset switch. Insert something like a paper clip into the hole and hold for a few seconds. Then replace the cover and all should work. You'll loose all the radio presets.
