View Full Version : Clarion CMD4 Error 6

03-09-2011, 11:17 AM
I am getting an error 6 while trying to play CDs in my Clarion CMD-4. Radio is still OK and aux input works fine so I can still work an iPod through it, but it a nuisance not being able to play CDs.

Has anyone else encountered this problem and if so was it reparable? Scouring the web it seems that the error is because the unit thinks the CD is in upside down (I have tried CDs both ways).

There is a suggestion that the lens might be dirty and needs to cleaned as well.
