Post subject: CD Error for '02 CD-6 CD changer
Archived from groups: rec>autos>makers>ford>explorer (more info?)

I just sucessfully repaired the CD-6 in my '02 XLT (out of warranty).
I had loaded 4 CDs into the unit, and it later refused to eject two of
them, with the all too common "CD Error" message.

The repair was fairly easy. First, put the unit into shipping mode by
turning the radio on, press and hold the "SCAN" button and preset 1
until the display reads "PLEASE WAIT".... this should last for about two
seconds after which the display should read "IN SHIPPING MODE" for
three seconds.

Remove the front trim (after disconnecting battery!) by gently prying
from the edges with a wide blade, such as a putty knife. Then remove the
two screws under the radio & remove radio.

Remove two large screws on the upper side of the radio to release the CD
changer. Carefully (watch the delicate wires) prop the changer above the
radio, and remove the changer cover, giving you access to the mechanism
and any CD's held hostage.

In my case, it turns out one of my youngsters had put not 1 but (3)
small post-it notes into the CD slot, which was the problem thankfully.

After reassembly, this delicate, overly complicated changer now works again!

PS: Next car, I'd rather have a single CD player with an MP3 jack!

Subject: CD Error for in-dash cd changer

I bought a Ford In-Dash 6 DISC CD changer for my 2000 Explorer sport.
Everything seemed to work fine except... the CD player says "slots
full" . Well there are no CD's in the
player and if you try and eject it shows "initializing" on the display
says "CD Error". Tried it a dozen different ways and just can't get it
clear itself.

I have pulled it out and disconnected the wires, but no
difference.Anyway, if anyone has an idea how I can fix this I would
appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
