    Default CD Player making loud noises and taking ages to play CD

    Afternoon guys. A few days ago when ejecting a cd the unit started making a loud clicking noise then stopped. It did it a few times after that but now when i turn the unit on it makes this noise or when ejecting a CD EVERY TIME now and its doing my head in. it will play a cd but you have to wait for it to stop having a paddy first.

    Any ideas on what it could be before it see's my steel toe capped boots!!

    Cheers.

    The radio model wouldn't go amiss.

    if its a multchanger unit i suspect the gear wheels are struggling to return the disc to the magazine - a strip and regrease of the associated cog wheels should help - before they wear and self destruct

    As said above...can you please advise which radio / head-unit you are talking about.

    On very early cd players it is not un-common for the cd player to jam up a little causing the ejection mechanism to churn and clatter in a bid to spit out a stuck disk.

    And also there is the multi changer units that can stick a bit...

    either way either the mechanism or cd is getting caught up.

    It will be a mechanism alignment or lubrication issue

    cd30 is from a fully multiplexed model - it wont work

    strip and grease the gear cogs on yours with a very light lithium grease - will do wonders and save you a fortune
