I feel your pain......and did extensive research on the internet.....Google "LX470, CD, err3" or "Nakamichi, CD, err3".

Take a look at this excellent explanation of how to dismantle and remove the head unit and retreive the jammed discs. I have used it and fished out three discs, but the CD Player still shows ERR3. An hour of work, so be prepared.

This is a site that provides repair services once you get the head unit out. http://www.carstereohelp.com/lexus.htm
"Six CD changer, Err message in display, will not play CD's, will not eject or accept CD's. Before repair, disconnect one of the car battery terminals for several minutes. This acts as a reset and may bring the changer back to working conditions. Otherwise, repair rate $385."

The Lexus dealer wants $750 to replace with a refurbished unit. Don't go down that route. Read these nightmare stories.

Don't buy a stray unit off of ebay, it is probably jammed or broken with the ERR3 meesage too!

If the home repair method doesn't work, then it will be better to just upgrade to a new head unit. I am buying a Jensen VM9215HD to get a multimedia system with all the trimmings and full iPod control for $460. Available on ebay or online stores. I'll install the unit myself, but you can get the unit and the job done at a local auto sound store for under $1000.

Good luck,

You need to try cleaning the lens of the player. If that doesn't correct it you might have lens damage.

This may sound silly, but make sure that the tape monitor switch is not turned on. If it is not, let me know and we'll look elsewhere.

usually these are not an economical repair, you either have a mechanical jam in the cd transport mechanism or you have a servo motor problem. you may be able to find a used working unit cheper then repairing you unit also when a repair is done on these changers they have a high repeat failure rate. If a local service center could just remove the jammed cd's and let it reset itself then try it again and see if it fails right away or works correctly, then you may have an idea on which way to procede
