Just recently my radio will lose the preset frequency. It will either bump up or down a few notches (example: preset is set for 105.7 it will jump to 105.9). It does it with all the presets. What's going on? Is there a button that was accidentally pushed? Any help would be great!

I am having the same problem and the dealership can't duplicate it. It happens very randomly. Would love if anyone has an answer on how to fix!

I own a Odyssey 2006, and it is equiped with a 6 CD changer, Once my battery died, I had to change it. When I replaced the4 battery my radio required a code which I key entered. After doing that, my readio (AM and FM worked, but the CD did not work I wnet to the dealer and they told me that the CD's were stuck inside the unit and that is not under warranty. Have anyone had the same issue...?

My 2005 Odyssey's 6 changer CD player just took all of my library rented cd's and won't eject them or load new cd's. How did you resolve? Has anyone else had this problem? Dealer says not a fuse or radio wouldn't work either, and it does.

4000 character limit. So posting in parts.

Part 1.

Friends, I recently went through a similar experience. I own a 2006 Honda Odyssey and the CD player stopped working all of a suddenly.
Took it to the "stealership" and they quoted $150 for labor (taking it out and installing again) plus cost of repair. The *estimated* total was about $375 to $400.
That qoute was enough to push me to trying something on my own, even if it meant ruining the player (Well, it was supposedly dead anyway, right?)
Came back home and looked around to figure out a way to get the CD palyer/console out. Nothing showed up. Service manual was about $20 with a week to deliver. While looking around, I stumbled upon an autoparts site that was selling a wood facia for the the dashboard and had instructions to replace the facia. The center piece of the facia happened to be just below the CD player console.
So that was my start. I just pried out the center facia (the one with the center HVAC control and vents) starting from the right side from inside of the right glove box (there's a notch there to start prying out), Once it was losely out I noticed a some wire connectors pluuged into it. Switched off the car, took the keys out and made a note of which connector went where and removed them. Off came the entire piece exposing the bottom of the CD player console.

The CD player console was held in place by 3 screws - one to the left, another to the right and one recessed about a feet deep on the center of the bottom. You need a flashlight and a relatively long screwdriver to get that one out. Once all the 3 screws were out, the CD player console was pulled out (even pressure from both sides). More connectors (4 to be precise) on the back. These were color coded so it was easy to remember. Before removing these, I took the fuse for the CD/radio out (instead of disconnecting the battery). The fuse of the CD/Radio player is on the bottom left side of where you left foot rests while driving. The fuse box cover will tell which one it is. They are all numbered. Once the fuse was out, I disconnected all the connectors and took out the CD player.
Brought it into the house and took off the top. It just prys out held in place only by notches. Once the top cover was taken off, I noticed that couple of CDs did not align with the rest and were clearly out of alignment from the stack of CDs. Using a small screwdriver and very gentle pressure, I tried pushing them into the stack felling every nudge for resistance. I aligned the CDs as much as I could and installed the CD player back. Didn't really screw it in, just connected the connectors and fuse and started the car. Nothing. Still didn't work. So back it came into the house.

Part 2 (continued from previous post):
This time, I took of the top and the front plate. The front plate is held in place by 6 screws, 4 on the side and 2 on the bottom. Once all the front plate screws were taken off, I pulled it out from the bottom with the top being hinged. Once it was lose from the bottom, I freed it from the notches/hinges on the top. Once the plate was off, it was kept face down on the counter. Note that the plate didn't separate completely from the player as it has a circuit board on the back that was connected by ribbon wires to the CD player. But it can be moved a few inches from the player assembly. Looking into the player from the front, I could see the bottom most CD edge. I could also see a white plastic spindle in the center that was supposed to hold the CD in the center hole of the CD which wasn't the case. So clearly that CD was out of alignment. Just kept nudging the CD around from the front of the player (and watching it from the open top as well) till the white spindle clicked and rose up into the center hole of the CD. THAT WAS IT. The spring mechanism clicked in and started arranging all CDs on the center spindle. This was without the CD player being connected to the power.
Hoping that the problem was resolved, I reassembled the face plate and the top cover. Took the player back to the car, installed the CD player connectors and fuse. Started the car and VOILA....the player turned on. FIRST thing I did was that I started ejecting all the discs. Once all the discs were out, I put in one that I knew was good. Demoed it and everything was working fine. I repeat...IT WAS WORKING. I was extremely relieved. I just saved myself $400 (or $200 if I had bought a remanufactured replacement CD player off ebay/online OEM parts dealers and did the installation myself).
The CD player console was then screwed into it's place. The center facia with the HVAC controls and the blower vents went back on next. Connected the connectors for it and just pushed it into place. I had to leave the gear lever into neutral position to give myself some room to work with facia and the CD player. Once everything was installed, I checked the roof light scwitch, HVAC controls, Hazard lights and CD/Radio playback using both CD player buttons as well as audio control buttons on the steering. After everything worked just as expected, I finally signed off the project.
Every time I had disconnected and reconnected the CD player, I had to enter the unlock code. You can find the unlock code on your service record booklet that came with the car literature. If not, the dealership can give you the code if you give them the VIN number.

Part 3 (continued from previous post):

WHAT A RELIEF!!

Culprit: A CD from the Library for our 5 year old. The library CD had two stickers on top - one for the bar code and the other one for the security strip. These stickers increased the overall effective thickness of the disc and when inserted, these stickers caused the disc load mechanism to malfunction and the whole thing was stuck!

NEVER AGAIN am I putting a library CD or any other CD that has stickers on it in the player.
Sorry about the lengthy post, but wanted to share as much info as I could with you all. Sorry I was really frustrated with the experience and what I had to go through while "fixing" the player, so taking photos was not really on my mind. That said, it's really a simple fix. Just gave it the time it needed and was extremely gentle with everything (especially when working with the CD alignment) feeling for any resistance on every nudge.

Worked for me, might for you as well. Worth a try before spending high $$ for professional help.

Is there anything the IPOD adapter for the 07 Odyssee? It came out recently and the dealer is quoting $425 to install it!

I have a 2004 Odyssey and I had it jumped yesterday Aug 30, 2009 and now the radio does not work. It shows the word error or code. This seems like it should be a recall problem. Does anyone know what to do? e-mail me at [email protected]

Helloooo!

I read this excellent detailed post, & figured I can do that. I can pull my cd player out as well & take it apart, put the spindle back in place etc.

However...

I've got the Touring model. I have the Navigation Screen that is in the down position permanently because the 6 Disc CD changer has a Jammed CD. I got the trim piece off, all the HVAC connectors are pulled. But this head unit is a bit more challenging than I was expecting. I can't access the rear of the unit to disconnect the plug-in connectors. And even if I did, how am i going to reconnect them later if I have no access to behind the unit?

What a let down. I thought it was going to be easy peasy getting this thing out & back in working order. I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but after taking apart as many pieces as I have to get to the stage I'm at, I feel inconfident removing additional parts without knowing which to focus on. I took apart the upper glove box's door hinges thinking this would grant me a better look & possibly space for an arm to get behind the changer, but no, that just made the door dangle funny.

Anybody know what I could do next let me know.

Thanks for your help.

I bought a used 2006 odyssey. The prior owner who bought it at an auto auction put in a new battery, and the same thing happened. The radio works, but the cd player does not.
