cd Player

Recommended Posts

I left my car for 6 weeks. Came home to a flat battery which I charged and everything worked ok, except for the cd player.

 

There is power to the disc cartridge unit and there are discs in the trays. When I press the CD button on the radio unit, the display shows 'No cd disc'.

 

Am I missing something simple? 

 

Can anybody point me in the right direction 

 

Thanks

James,

 

Try disconnecting the battery with the RADIO off and try to see if this will reset the stack?

 

Or

 

Try unplugging the 2 cables (one the fibre 'ring', the other the power unit). Give it a minute, and plug them back in.

 

Or

 

Hold AM/FM and EJECT then release both and press EJECT and MIX at the same time. Keep pressing EJECT and MIX til it cycles through the audio network (MAIN, AMP, NAV, PHONE, CDC).

Hi Trevor

 

I tried everything you suggested to no avail.

 

I don't have a eject button for cd's as the cd's are in a cartridge in the boot. I tried pressing a combination of all the buttons and nothing came up on the display.

 

Regards

James,

 

Don't know what to suggest then, thank goodness I have a USB port . The only other suggestion I can think of is that you can  link up your MP3 player to use a radio channel via a radio transmitter which you can get quite cheaply .

 

This sort of thing (there are loads of different types, even Tesco sell them )

HI

 

I still have the same problem with my cd changer. There is power to the changer, but when the CD button is pressed on the radio unit, 'CDC No Discs' appears on the display. The cd cartridge is full with 6 cd's.

 

In set up mode, I get CDC 2.0300 on the display. Can anyone tell me what this means and do I have to push another combination of buttons to get the cd changer to be recognised that there are discs in the cd cartridge.

 

Local Jaguar dealer couldn't sort this problem out!

 

Thanks for any advice

Found this, not much to go on, but you can only try.

 

" a guy told me to GENTLY tap the CD magazine, as this may release a disc that has become stuck.So, I did what he said,I tapped the magazine with the handle of a screwdriver, and, hey presto, all the discs loaded, and its working fine now."

Hi Trevor

 

Tried the tap with a screwdriver on both magazines and no luck.

 

However, I noticed that the lead from the changer unit was probably not plugged in properly. When I plug this lead into the lead coming from the front of the car, it doesn't 'click' in and is quite loose.

 

I will take the unit out tomorrow and try and get the 2 leads to mate with a 'click'

 

Regards

James,

 

That does sound more promising, if the worst comes to the worst new leads, but I'm sure that won't be needed, sounds like problem nearly solved .

 

Haven't used a CD in years, got loads in the loft if you're ever up this way (used to be a music researcher before I retired)

 

ATB,

Success!! Finally got my cd changer to work. I took the unit out of the car, took the cover off (Managed to find all the little bits and spring that shot off in different directions) Cleaned the head with cd cleaner fluid, put everything back and the unit is now working as it should.
