6 disc changer in glove box comes up on screen (no disc loaded). I unplugged the unit in the back for 20 mins and plugged it back in and tried it again. Still no disc loaded.

Is there anything else I can try?


Thank you for any help,
Mike

Remove and install the disc cassette itself - it should pop out of its mount. Same process for the center console unit in my STS.

EDIT: "Changer" edited to "cassette".

I removed the two screws and pulled the changer to get to the plug in. Any other ideas?

with the changer installed - ignition on - radio on -

^^ Yeah, that. The cassette pops out with a simple button push - so you can change CDs. Sometimes the system will fail to recognize that the cassette is inserted - all you do in this case is to jog the system memory.

========================
when did it work last?
can we assume nothing changed since it worked the last time?
didn't change any stereo stuff -
didn't change any CD's in the cassette - etc?

strange that the cassette ejects -
and the radio recognizes the CD changer -
just doesn't "see" and CD's -

are these factory CD's or burned CD's?

did these discs work in this changer before? -

I just bought the car. Every thing looks to be factory. The previous owner had discs loaded that they left in the car. When I hit the cd button to play it comes up no cd loaded. I did try changing out to my factory cd's , but no luck...

be sure the CD's are loaded correctly -
it's easy to load them upside down -

do the "supplied" CD's play in the single-disc radio CD player?

I load them label side up, but I have tried them the other way also. The car doesn't have a single disc player. But the discs play in my GMC pickup truck, and in the home disc player.

what? - your radio does not have a CD player?
are you sure?

It's got the nav system and then 6 disc changer in the glove box.

Would it hurt to pull the CD player fuse? I don't have a code to put in, will I need one?

I was wrong, it does have a single disc player behind the navigation system. The single disc player works, but the 6 disc changer still doesn't. Anyone else have any other ideas to try?

just thinking out loud -

the changer obviously has power
because you can eject the cassette -

the radio has communication with the changer -
because the 6 disc changer comes up on screen -
andyou get the message no cd loaded -

sort of narrows it down to a defective cassette -
or a bad changer -

ALL the GM 6-disc cassettes are the same -
so - if you know someone with a 6-disc changer -
try your cassette in their changer -
and their cassette in your changer -

ebay is a good source for a used changer - ~$100 -
it MUST be from a 2002 and newer Deville or Seville -

GM 25740088

--------------------

hmmmmmm -
just had another thought -
I wonder if it's possible that a disc is stuck inside the changer -
and wasn't returned to the magazine?
