Question about Durabrand DB1200 CD Player

2 Answers

Displays ER-3: Hello, I have a Durabrand bottom-of-the-line car CD player that started showing the readout, ER-3, then not playing the CD at all. Strangely, about 40% of the time, it will play anything that you feed it for maybe a couple of days at a time. Then, it will play nothing at all. Every other function on it has not been affected. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The best, Terry Dundee

    i have the same cd player and the same trouble plus some new ones, first off if your using burnt cds make sure you are using Imation music cds since they are the only ones the player will read. also i have had that message a million times and if the inside of your car is really warm or hot, it will cause that message, try ejecting the cd and keep the button pressed in so it will reset the mechanism.

I was reading about car stereo problems, er-3 seems to be a standard error code for "unreadable", whether it's scratched or upside down or a bad disc burn. When I get this message, it seems to have no bearing whether it's a burned cd or not. If anything, I have better luck with burned cd's. Most advice says to try cleaning the lens. I just moved to somewhere very humid, and condensation is very common in car stereos here. so i'm told. i tried spraying air at it. it worked just fine for a few days after this. then the problem came back. i tried spraying air again. didn't work. kept trying and now i have to figure out how to get the straw thingy back out of my cd player!

i think the real problem is i spent $50 on a cd player and you get what you pay for!

but maybe this is the solution for some of you. hope this info helps.

According to the manual er-3 is a "Servo error or the disc is in upside down". I wish i were kidding but that is what the manual says.

CD player displays error code: ER-1


The ER-1 code signifies an unknown error. Try cleaning the player itself, as well as cleaning the individual CD's prior to inserting them.

If that doesn't remedy the issue, ask for further help.

When trying to play an audio cd ER appears on the screen model # 916 Thank you


Hello

The error code you are receiving is either due to a dirty laser lens, or a burnt out lens.

You can try to resolve the problem by cleaning the head of the laser lens using a ear bud with some surgical spirits, or you can try a laser lens cleaning CD.

If none of the above works, the laser lens itself is probably burnt out.

Please fell free to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards
Andrea

Just in case you try to follow directions like me, make sure that you have removed the cover inside the cd slot. No, directions aren't great. They are as difficult as any I have ever seen, but when I tipped the unit up, I saw a note on the bottom of the cd shiny cover that says remove before playing. After removing the flat cover press the button to turn the light off. Light on means standby, not on. Insert cd and push function. Then push play/pause button on right. Hope this helps. If not, return to store.
