Question about Toshiba Sony CDXT69 CD Changer

Open Question


I conected a new CDX-T69. My car Audi A4 started loading the cd and was playing. For some reason I cound't get any sound. The Stereo then came up with erre message. I know the CD and Stereo work ok becase I took the same moddel CDX-T69 out of it. This had to be replaced because it would load the cartridge( I think a clip has broke?) Anyway, I've opened the top of the changer and I can see the CD Loaded and ready to go, the cartridge in in place (Locked and Loaded so to speak). When I connect it to the car and pres eject the arm at the top moves but nothing else does. CD stays in place catridge doesn't show any signs of moving, but the machine makes the noise that it's trying to do something. Can anyone help? I can't listen to the rubbish on the radio amymore during the day! Let me know Steve

    Hey Steve!, I know this is an old problem on here, but did you ever figure out what the problem was with you CD changer? I have the same one and I just bought it brandnew through EBAY, it was a clearance sale. Sony doesnt make these anymore of course, but apparently im having the same problem you are. I have a Ford Explorer which I had a clarion 6 CD changer in it, and after 12 years it finally crashed, so I bought the Sony one to replace it with; not knowing that Sony is brand specific. Well, anyway, I got the right part I needed to fix that so my factory stereo would be able to communicate with it, but once I got it up and running it worked briefly at first, then I shut offf the car and came out later to leave and went to try it out and it got stuck and wont play or eject. Any Clue? Thanks, Clifton R.

It could be a corrupt bios, which can be deleted with the removal of the bios battery or by the 'JBAT1' terminal to pins 2-3 then back to 1-2. The bios is probably set to halt on all errors and thats why it only goes so far. If there is no action at all; then there is a power failure to the motherboard or the processor has failed. Depending on your notebook age is whether it's economical to repair.

Hi, This sounds like an inshop repair. The technical term for the changer being set to 88.5 but works in 97.5 is "frequency drift" and could be rectified with the use of a calibrating instrument/frequency counter and an alignment tool assuming no component replacement required. Frequency drift can be caused by component failure, humidity, temperature etc.; The part "my car off the changer stays on" could be faulty trigger on inside the changer, faulty remote trigger on in your head/radio/controller unit. Good luck and hope this gives you a few ideas. Kind regards.

Error 1 how do i fix (audi tt cdx-t69)


It means that the CD changer is malfunctioning. Mostly happends after condensation, due to it's location near the taillight. Go in the back, clean any moisture, take out the CD, and re-insert it. Problem should be solved. Audi should put this as one of the most common defects between the 99-03 a6

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If the CD Changer was working previous to the installation, you may have damaged the cable on installation when routing it through the vehicle.

CDX changer has power but doesn't want to eject after flat battery

i resolved this myself in the end.
I unplugged the audio & power cables whilst the stereo and engine was running.
Then plugged back in.
I turned the engine off and stereo off as well.
I then unplugged audio and power again from the back of the CDX, left it unplugged for 10 minutes whilst the engine was still off.
I then plugged the leads back in and turned the engine on. the stereo recognised the CDX, but stayed on displaying "CD Checking". I switched to radio for 20 seconds, turned back to CDX and it selected CD 1 and has been good ever since.

I'm rather pleased with myself!

Sony CD interchanger CDX - T69 (how to reset?)

This would invalidate the warranty and you may break it but I have just had to do one:

1. Remove 4 black screws
2. Unclick the front panel - yes it is clicked on but may appear to be screwed
3. Take off black lid
4. Pop the cradled player from the 4 dampers and unhook from the 2 springs
5. Remove the ribbon connector - do this by slipping/clicking the brown holder very slightly and then the ribbon comes out easily
6. Now using a suitable tool push the stuck CD back into the magazine
7. Click the magazine out - there is a white piece of plastic what when moved does the eject.
8. Do the above in reverse.

The trick to get the grey horizontal/vertical discs back on is to set them passed horizontal one notch on and click them on at the end - turning one notch anti-clockwise to lock them.
