Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I inserted 6 discs into my monsoon stereo and the all played just fine. i took out the stereo because i am looking to upgrade it. upon putting the stereo back in for the day, i found that everything works except the cd changer. at first it sounded like it was jammed. it would try to play a cd but wouldnt, it wouldnt eject it either. after about 10 seconds of trying it would say player error. so i disconnected the battery for a half hour and reconnected it. now when i try to play cd's nothing at all happens. it will say player error once then all buttons refering to cds (play cd, eject cd) do absolutely nothing until i shut off the car and restart it. then i get the player error once more and then the cd buttons become worthless again.

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!

Why won't my CD Player won't play CD's?


the laser that reads the cd is probably dirty - if you have a can of compressed air - insert the nozzle into the cd player and blast away any dust and debris - if this doesn't help - there are cd cleaning discs available at any major retailer - just insert the cd and it cleans the laser - worst case scenario - buy a new cd player - the prices have really come down - I replaced mine with the trim kit and wire harness for $100 - only took about 1 hour - but you do need to buy the Ford stereo removal tools (available also at any good stereo store)

I think your recording head failed, you should stop using the deck and get a similar used one which works, repairs are usualy not cost effective.
Prodigital in Philadelphia does repairs, I paid about $250 for a replacement loader unit installed + shipping.

I bought a new 07 dodge caliber this weekend. It has a stock 6 disk with satilite. I cannot get a cd to load, or the stereo to change into cd mode. whats wrong??


if you push the eject bution it will tell you to insert disc, to go to fm or sat to cd, there must be a disc for it to play... to load the whole stereo with cd's just push eject and the tray you want to load along the bottom of the stereo and it will tell you when to put the disc in, works the same for taking them back out
