Re: (sweedish muscle)

I've never experienced this problem, but I have had weird stuff happen with my sound system. I am curious though: Are you really from a placed called Humble, TX? I didn't think there would be such a name in Texas, as Texans aren't too humble about "everything is bigger/better in Texas." Not trying to be mean or anything, I just found it funny. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (sweedish muscle)

That's funny...I guess Humility is bigger in Texas, too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> I've got a couple buddies in Texas, and like most Texans they love it.<p>Have you tried to disconnect the whole deck from the wiring? Maybe that will do a hard reset for the deck...

Re: (sweedish muscle)

Bad news man. I have the same set up, and mine read deck error about three months ago. I tried unhooking the battery, changing the disks, pressing pretty much every button on the car, but nothing worked. I took it to the dealer and they said that there is nothing they can do to fix it, and you have to pay the ridiculous $745 for the new deck and install... They'll send you your CDs later. I got mine about 2 weeks ago. Sorry man...

Re: (s40boy)

I have successfully taken the deck apart and put back together. Unfortunately my deck error was a result of a plastic spindle breaking. This is why the CD would not eject. I was able to retrieve my CD, but the deck is toast. I do have it if somewhere if anyone needs parts to solve a different problem. I also have a good single CD player that a recycling yard sold me as a 6 CD Player and would not take it back (because it was an electronic item). If looking for a fix, recycling yards could be an answer at less than $745 but make sure you get the correct unit. I ended up with one from a 2006 C70 and it works perfectly in my 2005 S40 without any reprogramming. The second time I made sure the part numbers matched before I paid for it and did not go just on the yard person's word!

interesting, I got a changer on eBay and once I hooked it up, the from closed and won't allow cd in at all, like its locked.

There is a chance that the unit you purchased off of eBay is broken (assuming it has matching part numbers). After retrieving my CD, I reinstalled my original unit until I was able to get the replacement 6 CD Player. However with the broken plastic spindle, it would not load any CD's. I would not get a "Deck Error' message since there were no CD's in the player.

Right on the money, i opened it up and there was a broken cd and the tabs (spindle). I contacted the guy and sent it back, just waiting for my other i ordered!!

I had a 12 cd changer, out of a trunk mount, Bose System not work for me. There is a place in Syracuse NY that repairs all types of car audio hardware. Here is the link.

I believe that this is the place. For $200 they fixed it 6 years ago and it still works as I just sold it on Ebay and the buyer installed it in his older Vette and it works. From the website it appears that they know what they are doing.
