ive got an eclipse cd 5423 head unit...it has worked flawlessly...with absolutly no problems whatsoever...but when i got in my car today after work the cd player wouldn't work...the radio worked fine...but the cd player couldn't read a disc...the disc would pop in and out on command...but it wouldn't play...whats really puzzling me is that i listened to a cd right b4 i left my car to go to work...and i turned my car off and didn't think anything of it...on the display it said "info 3" its never said that b4 could somebody with a little knowledge help me...o yea and i did try multiple cds so its not just a bad cd...
I'm kinda curious about this problem also. My JVC deck just did the exact same thing a few weeks back. The CD player is pooched but the radio and AUX still work. I tried a lens cleaner CD but no luck. I also tried to take apart the unit to check the lens but could not get to it for a closer examination. any help is appreciated.
The same thing happened to my clarion HU, and customer support told me that I need to have the lens re-adjusted, and their service dept was the only place to do it. So, now I'm just looking to buy a new HU.
If you're really planning to take that route, I might buy it...
I love this HU. That's why it upset me so much that t "broke" or whatever happened. For this same reason, I am considering the new model of 845MC. If you want it, I will gladly sell it. I have references on other forums, as well as E-bay. For the sake of privacy, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
I have the SAME problem with my eclipse 5423! Very embarassing! if you have any development, inform me please! Kru91@hotmail.com
a very simple solution. if these HU's are detatchable, there is usually a reset button behind the faceplate, press this, and voila! in my case i had to disconnect the entire HU from all power sources(ie remove the whole unit) and reinstall. presto! CD's work again! give it a shot. nothing like a free fix!
