Hi! Appreciate any help!

My radio and casstte deck are working fine but when I pu in a CD , I here it try to spin up then a couple of seconds later I get a code"E-00" on the display. No sounds or anything. If I try to skip to a different song I'll see the display go to that song and then try to read it (blinking "00" on the display) then I'll get the "E-00" error code.

The owners manual says something about a focus problem? Am I looking at a new radio or can I do something to remedy the problem?

Thanks!!!

Never mind, fixed it myself!

It was a focus problem so I figured that it's like DVD player that maybe has the carriage misaligned so when the CD was going in, I yanked it in and out, banged it a few times and now it works fine!!!

This was an extremely helpful solution! It worked! I have been having this same problem for months off and on. Previously, the only thing that had been sometimes helpful was to skip forward or backward a few songs.

Check the sides of the glove compartment for the code.
