Hello

does the CD load or is it ejected as soon as you try to load it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Matt


The cd tries to load then it shows the message:-wrong cdo.I think it has to be manually ejected. I'll check it later if you want to be sure but I will have to wait until the car returns.

Hello

OK if its loading then its not a mechanical issue but a electronic one

you have 3 choices
1) pay for the unit to be repaired by a professional car hi fi shop
such as http://www.braybrooks.co.uk/ - probably about £70

2) source a good used player and fit that ( probably about £50-80)

3) don't worry about a CD player and use a FM transmitter device to work with your phone or Mp3 player - about £15

Matt, the cd player is only for 1 cd at a time. It loads but takes a bit of time, there is no display of what is going on eg " Reading" then it shows track, then the message -- Wrong cdo. Are there repairers in the Cardiff area who would know how to sort out the cd player?


Thanks
