: Faulty CD Player

11-07-12, 09:56 PM
When I'm listening to CDs sometimes the audio sounds like it washes out(garbaly sound) and the time stops and I get no audio at all unless I press track up several times or change sources until I return to cd. This happens on brand new store bought CDs or burned discs. Could this be a dirty laser or something more? It's a 6 disc, in dash unit w/o Nav. Thanks for any help


I posted this in another section of the forum but I haven't got any replies

As much as people talk about a dirty lens and how bad this can be, in all the years I've dealt with automotive electronics, I have yet to resolve any sort of significant problem by cleaning the lens. Not to say this can never happen, but it wouldn't be my first guess.

Yeah it's something I've never experienced before
