I read a solution on here where you disconnect the wiring harness for 30-60 mins. to release the power stored in the capacitors. It seemed to work for everyone. I don't know if you tried this for this amount of time or not. Also, have you used a cd cleaner disc? You laser eye may be dirty. Also, since you said it was an old, battered car, maybe the vibration is causing the unit to malfunction. Also, if the unit is installed at the incorrect angle in the dash, it can cause a problem. Hope this helps...

JVC CA-D661T compact home stereo stopped playing burned CDs (it used to play these same CDs, now it doesn't recognize them). Everything else works, including playing of original CDs. Any ideas?

You can try cleaning the laser lens. You can do this using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Be sure you are very gentle though or you could risk scratching the lens which would completely ruin the laser assembly.

My pioneer car stereo DEH-P77MP won't play cd's anymore. the radio still works, but on the screen it says cd error AO or A0. i was wondering what problem this code relates to? hope you can help,...

This is a common error with these units when they get dusty from putting dirty disks inside the drive. Just go to your local staples and or walmart and get a 5 dollar disk player cleaning kit. It looks like a plain cd but has small fibers that come out of the bottom of the disc that clean the laser as it spins and tries to read it.
