Question about Teac AD-600 3-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Message 'no CD' always appears, but I can see the CD in proper position, but not spinning.

I took the unit apart to remove a stuck CD. The changer mechanism is now working properly, but always displays 'no disc' even though I can see it in place. The motor to spin the CD never starts. I've tried starting it with the traverse limit switch both opened and closed. Both motors read about 11 Ohms and continuity through the harness checks out. I did notice a broken gear tooth on the traverse gear that drives the rack. I restored smooth traverse by moving the gear slightly on the shaft, but the travers unit still stays dead even with the change mechanism moving the CDs around perfectly. Is there a fuse or interlock I might be missing?

    I see nothing happening after the CD is in place. Also, I don't measure any voltage, to either motor, coming from the control board. Since I had to fix a broken gear, I suspect the original stuck CD jammed one or both motors, and this overheated the motor driver IC. I ordered a replacement driver online for $6. I'm hoping this is the extent of the problem.

    We have similar problem in that when instructed to play the display frequently says "no disc", despite removing and re- inserting and trying the other drives. I am not aware that it has been damaged - but several people use it so it's hard to be sure!

    It is only about three years old - would the laser heads have gone so soon?

Error-99 shows on screen then turn system off

Error 99 is CD not up to speed. Either the CD is slipping, Defective CD, pickup is unable to read sectors and is either dirty pickup or pickup going bad.

Is it always the same CD you are playing? Is the CD smudged with finger prints or dirty? If not suspect the CD itself. This will require Repair or Replace, as E-99 is a classic malfunction & unit will need to be taken apart, "unless" there is a CD stuck in the Unit.

If you have loaded a Blank Cartridge & clicked Eject & found no extra CD, then you will need to have a Reputable Shop Repair Typically this is the Logic I.C. & / or the Servo Motor. Sometimes you can find the same Unit on E-Bay, Craigs List, etc for less than Repair

Changer Error Codes:
E-00: Poor Cable connection.
E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
E-02: No Disc in magazine.
E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

Hope this helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Error 99 appears, unit is draning battery and cds have jammed up. where can i get another unit from apart from genuine as they are too expensive due to the climate control!


If this is a Kenwood, then Error 99 means the following:

• E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

Before replacing the unit try disconnecting battery for two minutes (ensure you have car anti theft code). If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart, there is a disk stuck or a mechanical problem.

Regarding replacement, to find one you need to post details on make and model. Ebay is a good source for second hand factory replacemnts. Here a generic list.

2004 Nissan Titan, there appears to be a CD stuck in the muti disc changer. Any clue as to how to solve this?

Hello... One way to fix this is to remove the unit from the vehicle and take the outside case apart. This will allow you to see what is holding the CD from being ejected....

From there all it should take is a simple inspection of the mechanism in order to figure out how to remove the CD.

Good Luck....

5disc multiple choice cds stuck in slots how do i

Have a look for a small hole in the front of the CD player - this is the emergency eject button. Find a paper clip, unwind it and then press the paper clip through the hole - the CD should then eject the first CD and you will then be able to eject the others.

Not sure what the problem is

Check the changer and see if cds are inserted correctly or if 2 cds are in one slot.

Wave CD changer

Could try a CD lens cleaner disc, but this will just as likely get stuck inside. Far better to contact Bose for a repair - sounds like a problem in the changer mechanism

Cd player gets "stuck"

Built up dirt particles like dust or smoke on the lense can cause this. Buy a cleaning kit with a disc that has brushes that you dab with a small amount of alcohol which spins in the CD player and cleans the lens.
