I have the stock 6 disc in the trunk and it just stopped working for no apparent reason. It was taking extremely long to load cd's and then would say "no disc" now it just says "no disc". Earlier in the week it was skipping for no reason, brand new cd, and now it died altogether. What could be the problem? What should i do? :confused:

Its toast... you could try and get it serviced but i would suspect that the repair would cost you close to what a new unit would... usual Hourly rate on elect. service is $56.00 and up.... plus parts... but stop by a car audio place that is good and see what they have to suggest...

Benz has that problem too, it's made by Alpine, if the car is under warrenty we replace it with a exchange unit, if your car isn't in warrenty, check on ebay, you can find some great deals

don't take it to a dealer, it's not fixable unless you replace it, I'm a tech, trust me

Well i do have extended warranty from an independent company so i'll talk to them and see what they say. So this is not fixable at all? the whole unit just shits out and is garbage? Should I try and get them to replace the whole unit then?

I would try to clean it, although if you say that you get nothing, then cleaning it may also not help.

I thought you might want to try cleaning it as you say it started off by skipping.
