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.

Re-setting of cd changer


A couple of different possibilities here but this is a typical problem when it comes to the MB cd changers. Before ruling the cd changer bad, check the spring settings on the sides of the changer. Make sure they are in the 'H' position since it sits in the glovebox. The Mercedes cd changers don't have a reset button. 95% of the time its the cd changer that is bad when this scenario happens. Its caused by a linkage that gets knocked out of place internally of the cd changer. Also try not to use burned or homemade cd's as they can also cause the cd changer not to read the discs anymore.If your cd changer is brand new or a factory rebuild then the dealer should change it out no problem since MB cd changers are known for this problem. Also the version coding needs to done to configure the D2B fiber optic ring properly.

Onkyo cd changer skips when volume is increased


Try to move the cd changer away from the speakers. Any strong vibrations transferred to the cd changer from the speakers may cause this kind of problems.

CD changer will not accept CD's


I got the ERROR 3 on my Lexus RX330 2004 CD changer, and fixed this problem myself. My CD changer now works fine for more than one month after the repair, and hopefully will continue to work in the future )))) First, I opened top cover of changer ( about 8 screws ). Next step is most difficult - need to detach 4 tiny springs on top corners that hold metal top plate and keep them in the same place not allowing them to fall down (detach the spring, then hook the top with paper clip as to not let the bottom come detached and lose the spring inside). I used paper clips for holding the springs on the coners of the metal frame. Next need to take the metal plate out and then all plastic CD trays with CDs, the plastic trays may jam a little when being lifted out, but they will come out. Take all CDs and don't use them in the changer anymore. Seems the CD changer doesn't like CD-R's. So, use original CDs. Actually I an going to record new CD's using good blank media from good manufactures, will try to see whats gonna happen. So, take out all plastic CD trays keep them in order and facing the right way. After removing all CDs put all things back. Do everything very gently because all parts very precise and easy to break. The cd changer showed "Error 3" for the rest of the evening but then next day was fine and has been working fine since then. I think the computer had to be reset overnight to clear that error. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to PM me.

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,

Dave

Nakamichi cd-35z


There is adjustment for bass, mid and treble. Access this by pressing the button to the right of the volume knob. I leave mine set at +1/2, -3, +2 . I also set LOUD on which is done by holding the same button down. With these settings everything sounds pretty spot on, occasionally need to adjust the bass up/down and treble dependant upon the CD.
