Your wire connection is incorrect. Make sure that the yellow wire comming out of the radio connects to a yellow wire from the car and that the red one connects to a red one. Also make sure the radio is grounded properly.

Error cd player, dont eject and dont play it. Please help!!


"Play" errors often occur due to the format of the recording of the CD. If this was a "factory store purchased" disc, or one that previously was playable in this unit, then that would not be the reason. That won't cause an eject problem either.

One big reason that can cause both these issues is if you have lost your "memory" 12vdc. Usually the memory 12vdc is spliced onto an orange or yellow wire of the player. With the ignition switch "off" there should be 12vdc on the memory wire. With the ignition set to "RUN" you should observe 12 volts DC on 2 separate wires (the memory wire (as described) and the accessory wire (usually the red wire on the player) . A temporary trouble shooting trick is (if you have lost the memory 12vdc, is to temporarily connect your known good 12vdc from the ignition (accessory) to both the red and memory wires, (leaving the car's memory wire disconnected) and see if it now ejects. If it does, you just need to track down the cause of the loss of the memory volts- usually the fuse labeled "clock" but sometimes "lighter" is used, even "dome" light circuits.

Also I have encountered eject and play issues if the gears inside the player get out of sync. Unfortunately, only by opening up the casing of the player can you access these gears, and even then it is "hit and miss" as to re-aligning these gears. Prior to opening up the unit, try to locate a reset button on the back or on the front perhaps under the removable face.

Dirt and lint on the reader portion inside can cause errors playing. Dirt and grime on the moving parts can cause errors and binding that result in poor ejection.

Beyond this point, unless the unit is warrantied, go shopping for a new unit, or do as I have...transfer your music to a thumb drive and buy a unit that takes it!

My new pioneer cd player wont keep radio stations on mark 4 golf when i put engine off.

The problem is that when power is removed all memory is lost, the player needs to be wired correctly to retain the stations that were programmed in.

Hi my problem is with the dvd tray it does not open . it make a funny noise but it does not open thx

OK I fixed it. One of the CD's had gotten stuck between trays in the loader. I pulled out a few CD's by forcing open the trays gently. However even after removing as many cd's as possible one was still stuck. 1. Remove screws holding cover plate on in back and sides. 2. Remove cover. 3. Lift face plate latches and lift over top of unit. Remove serial cables from connectors on board. Take face plate and place aside. Remove screws from back of CD tray unit and bend back metal tab with flathead screwdriver. Lift CD unit up on one side so you can get your fingers up inside underneath and push stuck cd towards tray openings. You can gently force top few trays out. You may need to shake unit so that stuck cd reaches open end. Pull out CD. 4. Replace faceplate and connect serial cables. Plug in power cord, power on unit and make sure trays will eject normally. 5. Put it all back together!

There is no display on the faceplate. The faceplate is stuck in the CD eject position. If I remove the faceplate the mechanism rotates to the position where the controls would be visible but when I attach...

I would try cleaning the connectors on the face plate with an pencil eraser and on the unit itself with a very fine sand paper. And make sure you get rid of any dust after cleaning before putting the face plate back on.
Please leave me a good feedback.

My jvc cd player goes off and i have to remove the face plate and put the face plate back on for it to work again what could be the problem

Try cleaning the copper connecting pins with some rubbing alcohol. This sounds like it is a issue with the face no fully locking into the deck anymore

Memory loss

you need to remove the radio and swap the red wire for the yellow wire and vice versa, they have bullet connectors to allow you to do this, basically the permanent live and the ignition live are the wrong way round.

Hi Killie11, This is asimple thing to try. if it does not work email me at Remove the face, and clean the contacts. You can get a contact cleaner spraycan at Radio Shack with a built in brush. This can clean the face plates connector and the head units connector. You should have power if the rest of the radio is doing what it is supposed to do. Hope this helps
