i ejected the 6th cd and inserted one. All of a sudden it wouldn't read the 6th cd. It's like somethign is stuck cause it won't change cds and it keeps saying cd error.

mine ate 2, taproot and alice in chains, it's funny because that alice in chains cd has been replaced 4 times already, the live version. i took it to the dealer, they put a new one in and sent the old one for repairs, they were supposed to give me back the cd's if they were still good or buy new ones if the cd player ruined them. about 5 months later i've got nothing. oh well.

press 3, 4, & seek up at the same time. It should run some diagnostics. This might work if your six disc is like mine.

Solaris, mine did the same thing. I don't exactly remember what I did to make it start working again, but I do know that at one time I had to take the damn thing apart to get my CDs out. All I did was pull the top plate off the unit and the CDs are accessible from there.

I think one time I disconnected the battery for like 15 minutes, then reconnected it and when you turn the radio back on, turn it to AM/FM mode. I think that allowed it to read all the CDs right. It takes a minutes or so, though.

It did this to me several different times, not just once.

The way it's made, that's possible. The CD loading mechanism and trays are not very sturdy. I don't know how there haven't been more problems with them.

Yeah, my car is still under warranty...even the radio tech at the dealership says the 6 discs are pieces of crap. 3 units and 5 trips to the dealership later, I'm giving up. I'm putting in a new kenwood mp3 unit next week. Does anyone else have problems with erratic volume control as well?
