Default CD Player reads "Error" when I load a CD in, any way to fix this?

I'm trying to avoid going to the Dealership for this, but doubt that possibility unfortunately.

When I Load a CD in, it sits there for a second, makes the "loading" noise, then reads "Error" on the screen.

Anyone else experienced this?

Tell it to "fcuk off" in a stern tone and it should work.

Also, feeding the CD drive some pieces of white bread can help. Do not include any hummus on the bread as that could result in an irreversible "Error".

Hey if it's under warranty, let them take care of it. As long as they work with you that should be all that matters. You may get a new radio out of it. If you are dead set on trying to fix this yourself, get a cleaning disc and try that. That's about all you can really do w/out taking the thing apart and trying to manually clean the laser. That is, of course, assuming that's all that's wrong.

KA, Is this a CD you burned or a store purchased CD?

Have you tried other purchased CD's? Just asking as sometimes what works "at home" may not work in the car and vice versa.

If it happens with other CD's definately recommend a dealer visit.

In all honestly now that I'm not in a hyperactive state yes you should take your car to the dealer. They'll fix it for free (being a warranty issue) and it'll be out working like a sexy beast.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!
