This answer was rated:

I have a Kenwood car audio model kdc-225MR that we have in our boat, it keeps ejecting
the cd. Would you please advise.
Hi sorry to hear about that.
How old is your Kenwood?
does it eject as soon as place a CD in?
Or will it play at all?
Thank you

Hi Michael,

Thanks for replying.

The radio was in the boat when purchased,

we guess it may be 5yrs old.

It ejected one cd straight away, the other cd played 3 tunes then stopped altogether.



Thank Jeff,
This sounds like the unit just needs a professional cleaning. Especially since its on a boat.
This will happen when the sensors inside get contaminated a bit and also the unit will likely need a new drive belt. The service isn't expensive and worth it for this unit.
Any car audio repair center can do this for you, but you will need to remove it from the boat and bring it in to them is all.
It should be pretty easy to do that ;-)
I will help if you get stuck.
Also I will stick with you until this is working again as it should but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)
You will then be able to contact me at anytime at no additional cost until we have this fixed for you.

Thank you Jeffrey and have a great day!

Hi again Michael,


Do you do this service, if so can we send it on to you?

Hi Jeff I do , but I'm too far for that I'm in the US lol, sorry.
Any local electronics repair shop could do this for you though, even a lot of TV shops and computer repair places will do this as well.
It really is an easy task to fix for an experienced tech.
Thank you
