Lately, my cd changer started to eject discs very frequently so I performed a cd lens cleaning with a special disc. 2 days ago, no disc could be read, one was ejected and after that, the cd unit does not respond at all, it doesn't play any discs, it doesn't respond to eject button or any other button. The only thing it does is to turn off on its own after some seconds.
Can this be repaired or should I consider my changer dead?

i think mine is beginning to break. when i turn the car on, it ejects a cd. i can put it back in and it works fine but i dont know why it does that. also, when i switch cd's the first song that is played is very choppy. all the other songs are fine its just the first song on all of the cds. after the cd has been played for a while i can switch back to the first song and it will play fine, it just has to warm up, i dunno
Happened to me also...Replaced it with an mp3 player.I heard that these cd-changers when they break they are not fixable.
I have a a related question.
I also bought the no-name 6 CD changer (for much less than 100 bucks) and it works fine.
But I also bought the Audio-Link IPOD adapter which doesn't work (though I have a 9.55 version head unit).
One of the fixes suggested by the RPM store for the adapter was to remove the CD player.
That got me thinking that maybe my problem is the no-name changer.
RPM is working on a firmware fix (and will give me my money back), but I want to keep the adapter based on RX8 Club recommendations.
So if RPM Store doesn't come up with a fix soon, I may put the original single CD player back and see if that solves the problem.
What does anyone think?
Mine did the same thing. I have one on order from Japan through local dealer to be replaced under warranty. They said it will take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months to get it in from Hiroshima or wherever. It's been 4 and a half months and I'm still waiting...
I want to replace the unit anyways with a DVD/Stereo of something but want the new working unit in my car so I can put it back in if I sell.
