Clarification on CD changer adjustment springs

As i recall.. i did notice a set of what i belive are the adjstmnt you are speaking of.. one on each side of the changer.... there seemed to be a groove or slot for the screw to slide when loosened.. then tightened once adjusted.... would you recommend the screws be adjusted to be 'centered'? I think the grooves were arched slightly [bottom ) top]

It depends on how the changer is mounted. The center postion is normally for a changer mounted at about 45 degree angle. There should be a key for you to see what it should be set at. If the changer is vertical, meaning the changer is in an up and down postion and the magazine goes in from the over the top, the springs should be vertical as well. I would suggest that you set the springs to the exact opposite of where it is now since it skips so easy, it is likely that the springs are in the wrong postion right now. So put them in the most extreme change the CD changer will allow. Then it would be likely that the changer would be set correctly. You will find out soon enough, right when you go over a bump that would have caused skipping before. If it does not skip, you got it right.

    Thanks for the rating, but every time you give me a "helpful" rating, my overall score drops. They do not do a very good job of describing how the ratings work. A "helpful" rating to somebody with a score as high as mine is actully bad. considering I gave the best information you could get, a "FixYa!" would have been more aproppriate. I only give this free help for the rating, getting it dragged down when you give good advice makes it much less motivating to keep offering people free help.

Dear all, I have a Pegeute 307sw with a Blaupunkt Audio set with Multi stack CD Phone Nav SAT . Apperently the Multi stack cd is not functioning any more and the buttons numbers are...

Cd changer is mainly a mechanical unit, most common problems are caused by gears and dirty lens.
Try disconnecting the cd changer power cable and connecting it back, if it reset the changer it will restart working normally, if not you have to replace or take out for repair the cd changer.

My pegeot multi cd changer is not working, I've put CD's in but it says No CD loaded

Possible failure of the OPTICAL HEAD unit in the changer. it will be good to try and clean the lens eye using a Cotton bud , very gently . make sure that the mechanism is set right to load when the cd is put into the changer or else it can be a case of alignment or failure of the loading motor drive system.

Cant get jvc car stereo to work a sony cd changer

Does your sony cd changer have a separate controller and rf modulator interface? It's a wire from the cd changer with a little box close to the end and an antenna plug at the tip? If you do just plug it into the back of your radio where the antenna goes in, then plug the car antenna jack into the other side of the little box and turn your radio to the marked setting on the box. IF NOT , you can not interface the din plug from a sony into a jvc radio because the sony radio that has a md controller built in will control all of the functions of the matching cd change.
I hope this helps...

if its a burned cd, check to see if its CD+/-R or CD+/-RW.
some older model cd changers dont play cdrw's.

if its a store bought cd, have the changer looked at by an electronics specialist.

I installed an "Audi 6-disc changer" in my 2001 A6. The installation went without a hitch..connection and bracket mounting was fine... it performs as expected except it seems to be extra...

Most CD changers for cars have setting for the internal springs. The springs are postioned one way for a vertical mounting and 90 degrees different for a horizontal mounting. If this is incorrect, set for vertical when it is mounted horizontal or vice-versa, the unit will skip very easy.

I am not familiar with the Audi changers, I repair only aftermarket changers like Kenwood, JVC, Sony ect. but they all have a mounting direction setting on the sides of the changer. It can be adjusted with a flat head screwdriver. Try looking for this setting on the outside edges of the changer.

I hope this helps and a "FixYa!" rating would be appreciated if this free help solves your problem.

Thanks and let me know if I can be of any more assistance,
