Welcome to Fixya

This means that your car stereo is not reading the disc. Try to use a cd cleaner first to clean the lens.

Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: I inserted 6 discs into

Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. In the many years I have been doing car audio, it seems that factory units are getting cheaper and cheaper. By far the least impressive units I have seen have been the indash 6 disc changers the factorys are installing. They are VERY sensitive and it doesnt take much to get them out of whack. It even states on the top of most of the units that is you drop it, you are to throw it away. That is just ridiculous. You have 2 options here. First one is to take it to a repair facility and have it serviced. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find service centers for factory radios because aftermarket headunits are really cheap and 10 times better in overall quality and features. Your second option, and the one I recommend, is to just replace the unit with an aftermarket one. You can retain the Monsoon system with the new headunit and you can get capability for direct USB and AUX inputs for todays smart phones and other digital devices. You will need a dash kit, wiring harness adapter, and an antenna adapter to install a new headunit into this vehicle, but it will be well worth the investment. You can get a good cd player for about $89 or so that will be a name brand like Kenwood or JVC. The price will go up from there depending on what additional features you would like to have, such as remote control, ipod control, droid control, bluetooth, etc. Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!

Sometimes CD players come with a plug that keeps the reader arm in place during shipping. If you don't remove this plug it doesn't allow the arm to move, thus a code. You might recheck this. If that's not the case, check your warranty papers, you might need to use them.

When try to play cd the word error comes up on display and will not play the cd


check that the cd works on another stereo and if it is a burnt copy or a different region your player can not read it so try another cd being a genuine one and see if it plays if it does it with all cds then you may have a problem with the head unit or the laser that reads the cd or the region on the head unit is not the same as your region as alot of people buy these stereo units off ebay but alot of them dont play in some contries

I hav a clarion auto cd/stereo displaying err 6 please explain, thank you


Error 1.Battery inside CD Changer needs to be replaced.
Error 2.CD error message. Mechanism has as eject problem or takes a long time to select CD.
Error 3.CD error message. The pick-up is out of focus during play mode due to scratches on the disc or contamination.
Error 4.Connection problem. Reconnect the data cable.
Error 5.CD error message. Could not read correct data due to CD ROM.
Error 6.CD error message. Could not read data from disc because it is upside-down.

For error code 6:
Try an original purchased cd with no scratches and see if the cd player reads it. If yes then lens is dirty or tired so try using a cleaning cd(has little brushes on it). If it doesn't read with the original cd try using the cleaning cd and if no go then look at purchasing a new cd player!

My Phase Linear CD PLayer was working in the morning then I got in the car hours later and everytime I put a cd in the screen read Error 1. So I took the face of the player off and blew in it. I put it...


only thing you can do is send it into the manufacture and pay them to fix something like that but it would be alot easier and cheaper to buy a new stereo.

Kenwood receiver/sub problem


The amp's remote turn-on wire is probably connected to the blue wire coming from the back of the stereo - this is intended for a power antenna, which is why it only works when listening to the radio. Disconnect it from the blue wire and connect it to the blue/white wire coming from the back of the receiver and you should be good to go.
