'CD error' on head unit


So I just tried putting a cd into the in-dash 6 cd player/head unit (stocker) for the first time = FAIL. ('02 GT)

Won't eject any cds - just says CD ERROR across it.
Can't select a CD (1-6),,,or do anything with a CD basically. Radio works fine,,all other controls work.

Just wondering if there's ANY fix to this (rebootsky / reset of some type)?

Thanks,

Like said above, you could hit it, but that stopped working for me. I also have this problem and also have an 02' GT. I removed the whole unit and took the face off and un-jammed the discs. I left the screws that hold the face on so if it does it again I can remove the trim bezels and the face without completely pulling the unit out anymore.

Is there an actual fix? Not really. Its poor ford engineering. Go get a double den touchscreen unit and you'll be happier. I don't really see a point in trying to fix it though. Mine always does it after un-jamming it. It will work a while then quit again.

Mine did that while I was driving. I pulled over shut the car off, and tried and it worked. You could try disconecting the battery.

^ forgot to mention that. at random times when the unit receives power( when starting the car) the unit will try to read/ load the discs. sometimes it will un-jam and sometimes it doesn't. But its not a power issue so the battery thing really wouldn't help anymore than me un-plugging mine.

^ Agreed. If the radio portion of it didn't work either I prolly would have taken it out and experimented on the disc changer to maybe make it work without fail, but since it's a little drive to school I'd miss my morning tunes if I broke it.

The 460 unit sucks ass. Once it gives you any sort of error, or difficulty it'll just give you more problems from then on out. My advice to you; give it the finger, rip it out, and put a nice aftermarket one in.


Trust me.

BTW-
I found that my fails if I hit the EJECT button, then try to move to a different disc before it completley ejects.
You'd think I'd learn the first time to be patient..

I'm interested in replacing it with something other then stock. I don't want it to happen again. Once replaced, I'll be happy to donate it to someone if they're interested.

Right now I have blow some money on new rotors, and getting the trans./diff serviced.
