Question cd changer question...

changer stopped playing, and went to a "No Disks" message.

ejected the magazine, and new am getting a "CD-Check", and then the "No Disks" message.

loose connection maybe? or a toast unit?

$674.00 for replacement, and am I glad my extended warranty expressly covers the sound system on touring bike coverage...

Re: cd changer question...

I took mine out as well - the most useless piece of equipment I have ever seen. Skipped on a crack in pavement.
Much more luggage space now and use MP3 for music.

Re: cd changer question...

You'll probably find a lot of folks willing to part with their slightly used CD changers for little more than the shipping cost (me included). Mine has been collecting dust in the garage for 2 years now.

Time to switch to an iPod?

Re: cd changer question...

If your warranty will get you a new changer take it and put it on eBay. Use the money to get a good MP3 player and enjoy better quality music and more luggage space.

Re: cd changer question...

I had that exact same problem with my CD changer. I went to Best Buys and bought a CD cleaner, put it in and it worked perfectly after that. It must have accumulate some dirt or dust that caused the problem. As an aside, I later took it out, and now just use an Ipod for music. Try the CD cleaner before you buy a new or used changer.

damn dude, you are GOOD!!!!!!!!!

I was on my way to the dealer to get one ordered, but decided to grab a can of computer dust off to spray inside.

much to my amazement, it worked.... (only on cd 4 through 6..)

I went to the dealer, and sprayed it in again (nothing to lose!) and it worked!

All 6 cd's are working perfectly again.....

warranty would have covered the cost ($600++) but not solved the dirt issue...

catch 22 (or 23...)

Re: cd changer question...

You're still better of replacing the changer with a DICE iPod unit. I have my iPod nano hooked up and can go days without hearing the same tunes. Well worth the money
