I-048: RL CD Changer Issues ( Not Reading, Won't Eject CD's)

I have a 2005 Acura RL and it seems the disc changer went out on it. I started the car today and it won't play any of the discs in the player or eject them. I have tried turning the car off and back on , still no luck. Any ideas?

For the record my car is out of warranty from Acura.

Yep... happened to me a few months ago. It would eject discs but not play them. Dealer replaced it under warranty. I have no idea how much it costs to replace but it can't be cheap! Best of luck!

MP3 Reading Issue

Fortunately for me, the problem was caused by a MP3 disc I made on the computer causing the player to lock up.

I noticed when I got in the car the next day driving it the CD player would sometimes work, then fail.
My factory pressed CDís work just fine, and I eventually took the MP3 disc out and my problems were solved!
It is my recommendation to anyone that when they mix discs on the computer, burn them at a slower speed instead of using the default (max) setting. Burning them at 16x should make sure you have a good burn.

went to the dealer last night and they said they do not do repairs on stereos but only replacements. since i am out of warranty, they said it would cost around 3 grand to replace the radio.

another option is to have the dealer uninstall (~2 hours of labor charge) the radio and ship it (~$100) out to the manufacturer to look at it and it's not guaranteed that they can fix it either.

third option is to go buy a radio unit from a junk yard and have the dealership install it. there's a radio unit for sale on ebay right now for $700 so this isn't a cheap option either... sigh

Or buy a refurbished radio and install yourself. It doesnt seem that hard of a job.

I ran into the same problem today, loading a DVDA that I had just burned. Tried several different things to eject.

I WAS ABLE TO GET MINE WORKING AGAIN.

I selected a different disk, then turned off the car, waited about 5 mins. then started the car, the changer changed the disk to the one I had selected. I ejected that one, then selected the one it was stuck on and ejected that one. That one went into the trash, then loaded a couple of different disks that I knew worked and all is well. Whew.......

I'm having the same problem with my CD player, the CD text appears on screen but when I select a disc nothing happens. Has anyone tried disconnecting the battery?
