I recently bought a Clarion DXZ465MP and did a self install, it was clean and everything worked great. CD's/MP3 and radio worked fine. I hooked up a new pioneer 12" in the trunk(used to have a kenwood 10"). Then I plugged two RCA's into the aux inputs (on accident) and realized my amp wasnt getting power. i pulled the head unit out and attached them to the pre-outs(this time the front ones, again on accident). went back and changed it to the rear pre-outs and the sub/amp worked great an all was well. i inserted a cd again and it just wasnt reading. it woudlnt read any kind of cd/mp3. pulled it out again and checked all connections and everythign was good. put a disc in again and it read ERROR 6. in the manual error 6 means upside down disc. im obviously not putting the discs in upside down b/c they worked fine before. what would be causing this what can i do?
You can also clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or one of the lens cleaner discs. If that doesn't work, I would guess the pickup is bad. At which point you would be better off just buying a new CD mech. But, if I remember correctly, most of Clarion's CD mech's are really expensive; 70-160$
It's up to you to decide if you want to replace it or not.
same problem except mine does plays but doesnt show text words, its says on the manual it supports id3 tag, so i burned some cds using mp3 format and correct id3 tag but still does not show any song text, clarion is bad about this, i had no problem with my pass jvc'S
