M-Error is a mechanical error and could have a multitude of causes. just went through it with a TAD-5160 unit where it was a small slip gear moving a tin lever to ingage the transport sled to insert or eject the disk from and to the carusel. You may have to take the unit apart and asess the problem. Harleysp.

SOURCE: Hello I have a Pioneer XC-L11

It is most likely that the laser pick up is bad. That is the part that reads the disc and is the most common reason. You can try a lens cleaning disc to see if it just needs to be cleaned, but if that does not work you will need to take it in for service. This problem can be caused by several different things, from the spindle motor (spins the disc), to the pick up (reads the disc), or even an IC that controls one of those things. Once you have cleaned the lens, you can also try cleaning the disc's. If a disc has a fingerprint or scratch in the area of the disc that is know as the TOC (table of contents), it will not read the disc. Fingerprints in other areas of the disc will cause the player to skip or even stop playing. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel to clean the disc's, it works as good or better than the disc cleaning kits you can purchase, and it is much cheaper.

If none of this helps, it has a problem that only a trained technician can figure out with the proper test equipment. Then you must decide if it is worth getting fixed. Some service centers offer free estimates, but those are the ones that don't actually check your equipment first before giving an estimate. They just give you a ballpark figure that is usually pretty high. To get an acurate estimate you normally have to pay for it. A technicians time is worth money, my shop charges $25 for an estimate.That is pretty cheap. Some are as high as $65 for an estimate. But if you are paying for an estimate, they will normally at least troubleshoot the unit and determain just what the problem is, compared to a free estimate which is just a guess and a ballpark figure usually high to cover the cost no matter what the problem is. You may also end up paying much more for a repair when you get a free estimate, because you have already approved that amount, and many shops will charge you that much even if they find a simple problem that only takes 30 minutes to fix.

Replacing a pick up normally cost about $125 to $150 because the part can sometimes cost as much as $75.

I hope this was helpful for you and lets you make an informed decision. let me know if you need any more help.

The LG DR787T will recognize CD-R media, and CD-RW for updating its firmware. Do not use DVD media. You have to copy the update to disc. There are instructions on the LG website on how to upgrade using CD media. Search for the file: "2_SoftwareUpdate.pdf"

Cd player doesn't play cds


Pioneer is a very good cd player i know this from my friend having one, I know in some cases like yours if a CD player does not play cds it is a dirty or scratched lazor head( disc reader ), you could try buying a cd lazor head cleaning kit i done this a few times for cd players an my dvd player an it worked pop in cleaning disc an follow simple instructions about 10 mins at most that job if it works no worries, if a cd cleaning disc doesent work its more likely the cd lazor head is burnt out or past cleaning like my ford probes jvc cd player wont work because the reader is past cleaning sadly from age as its a car that has has 3 owners im looking for new cd player now, just try a cleaning kit few times if that will not work it may be ruined an you will have to get another sorry to say that but its same for me. hope this bit of help works

My Pioneer PD-TM1 18 Disc player reads through all three disc magazines searching on each individual CD disc one at a time, and then will not play any one of the disc?


Seen alot of these "drop" the laser lens inside the unit! Have had some luck glueing the lens back on using radio/tv cement. Don't try super glue or it will ruin the lens! No luck replace the laser!

When yuo put a cd in the cd player it reads error 11 what is error 11 and how do you fix it?


Some Head units (cd players) dont like to play burnt discs. I love pioneer (deh-p6000ub)and that is all I use for head units, and sometimes, depending on how you burn the, they wont play. Make sure to use windows media player to burn your files, that might help. If you are using regular store bought cds, then you might need a new head unit, it might be an internal problem.

My pioneer cd/dvd/rw-dvr 111D will not recognize a cd in the drive, usually this happens with game cds. it does recognize some,but some it does not. i have put the same disc into another computers cd/dvd...


My cd drive does this as well not a good thing but I have found that if you put a disc you know it will read in then anydisc you want it to read it should read it. Mine only does it every now and then. I have also found that if just after the cd door closes if you give it a tap on the cd door it will read the disc try it it might work for you. I have taken mine to a repairer and the drive is operating fine and they could not figure out what was wrong for it to do that and yes it did do it for them to.
