so i bought a used car today and the 12 stack cd player in the trunk seems to not work.
cartridge won't eject.
display has shown to errors E-70 and E-60 .
it is a pioneer CDX FM1235s.
any info or help would be appreciated.
thanks,
Adrian.

or if you can fix for a small fee even better.

the stock stereo in the car is pretty kick butt.
put together by infinity has awesome sound.
downside is it is a cassette player and not cd.
when i can afford the bracket and harness I'll take you up on the deck for sure.
I'm all good as long as i can play a cd.

I've always had problems with CD changers.
(Aftermarket & stock.)

You can get the harness & wires fort cheap @ Canadian Tires.
Aftermarket decks are 100X better even if it's an older deck.
Sound quality & clarity are much better.
The option to add aftermarket speakers is a plus too.

When you can I'd suggest you invest in a deck with MP3 adapter through USB or even direct from your deck right into your MP3 player(better sound quality).

pull the plug from the changer end and check for power with a test light, and check the webbernet for what your code's mean. its usually something simple..

Music is most important to me.
My deck has 3 RCA pre-outs great & easier for hooking up amps & 4volt pre-out voltage.
I don't need a DVD player in my car, why not watch in in HD @ home.:D
I have GPS on my BB, plus I bought a garmin too.
