Cd not playing

Hi guys, my stereo does not play cds , it shows one has been put in as it says T01 like it's about to play but then just ejects,  I never checked when I got the van as never bothered me, but heading to Haynes motor museum this Sunday and wanted blast some tunes.  I tried another stereo and it did the same, I'm wondering if maybe wires are missing from the rear,  something maybe not connected but I don't know, any ideas thanks.

Luck. Or lack of it that you had two with the same problem or................................ Duff CD, does your steering controls have an eject button. Its needing a clean however, who uses CD's nowadays big_smile SD, USB or Bluetooth

Re: Cd not playing

We had this exact fault on our Scudo's factory fit CD player, so we replaced it with a Sony CD player that has Bluetooth, USB port etc....

But to be honest, I use the CD player more than anything else!!

The CD & radio works perfectly on this Sony head unit, so it might be worth trying a different CD player if you can lay your hands on one.

We got ours off eBay, ex display for only £25!! Was a total bargain smile so worth a look.

Re: Cd not playing

We (have) had  exactly the same Clarion.... what's it Radio CD player in van an 306 ..... (Pug.... Citroen Etc) but the CD player wouldn't work in the 306 for her...............

So on "A" particular visit to her Daughters ........ The boy friend there decided to swap out the Radio CD player for what I'm concerned is a piece of Sh** ......
But it plays her CD's........

Fast forward a couple months I'm getting grief how the CD player in the van must be F..... As the CD's play fine in the 306......... Not a peep in van
Obviously I investigated ..........

She's been using Mp3 discs and they don't work in the factory CD player it seems

So it appears they binned a perfectly working player............ Not best pleased but I have a spare one

Re: Cd not playing

My Scudo has the original CD player, and it very rarely plays CDs. Only occasionally will it play one or two tracks on one before giving up.

Hardly surprising when they stuck a Fiat badge on the player.   sad

Re: Cd not playing

Mine isn't an original but when it started skipping disks I started using one of those small mp3 players into it's external input jack.  A good option if you have the input socket.  Could just use your phone instead of course.

19gig of music taking less space than a single CD.  Can also play vidio on it's 1 1/4" screen but I dont bother with that.  I plug my tablet into the CD player aux when watching vidio.

Wish it had direct memory card slots though.
