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.

Error message


Check and see if there is a fuse on the back of the unit if so check it to make sure that it is not blown. Also make sure that it is at least a 25 - 30amp fuse. If that is not it the make sure you have the power wires hooked up right. See a Er-05 message means that the power that that unit needs is not there. So it will not read all cd's. It takes more power to read a burner than a normal cd. Hopefully this helps

The CD has quit playing and an ER 4 message


I had it too. - when I bought the used vehicle and was elated that it had a Jensen sound system in it. The sound was good - played a CD the first time I put it in. We listened to the radio after an hour and then attempted to replay the same CD. The ER-4 message showed up. The man who sold me the vehicle had given me the paperwork on the unit and I reset it. I've had to do this at least 4 times which means you have to reset all your favorite stations, time, etc.
