It is possible that the mechanism is jammed and so there is no loading of the carriage to the system. when the tracks are selected please try and hear if there is noise of the loading of the CD. If not there is a failure of the drive, failure of the loading section both of which needs a mechanical check within.
Please also have the optical head cleaned.

Why did my car stereo muted when playing CDs and USBs while radio works ok?


What I have seen with a lot of car stereos, is they don't build them to withstand the vibrations cars put out. Just bad solder joints..

When I push cd on the stereo E99 flashes. what does E 99 mean?


The E99 error message is something to do with being unable to read the CD correctly.

There is not a lot you can do apart from making sure that there is only 1 CD in the tray and it is seated correctly and the lasar lens is not dirty.

This lens can be cleaned using a cotton bud dipped in Iso-Propyl alcohol or by buying a cleaning CD...which is a CD with bristles in it. This is coated in cleaner and allowed to spin inside the unit.

These items can be obtained off Ebay.

The above usually cures around 70% of problems.

Hi My sony cd changer in my car has very recently stopped poading CDs and comes up with an E-99 message on the the display, can you please advise what this could mean? Thanks


The E-99 error will come up if you try to play a CD to quickly after turning it on or loading. You will need to disconnect the power (red and yellow wires) from the harness (back of CD player) and leave it disconnected for sixty seconds. If that does not correct the problem then you will need to get the laser inside your unit re-aligned

There could be a loose connection somewhere.
Does the sound stops on a regular time interval or only on certain conditions?
Would there be a chance that there's water leakage at the area where the CD changer is stored?

My cd player in my 1994 s320 is displaying e99


If there is no scratches on it and the label isn't worn off it should play. Some older CDs had microscopic lithium ion batteries imbedded in them. You should check with the Mercedes dealer and see if they still carry the batteries and if they are replaceable. If that doesn't work I would smash it with a hammer.
