Lincoln CD changer


I'm a caveman who's never had a car with a CD changer before now, so bear
with me. The 10 disc changer in my '97 Lincoln Mark VIII (I believe it's a
Sony changer mated to the JVC head unit) plays great...until I hit a fair
sized bump. Then, rather than skipping (which I would expect and tolerate),
the cartridge seems to disengage. I get a "no disc" error on the display.

What's the most likely problem? A bad cartridge? The previous owner had
jammed the cartridge in upside-down, which I had a stereo shop correct. Can
it be the changer itself, when it seems to do what it's supposed to do
(until I hit a big bump, that is)?

I know this may not be the best forum for this problem, but it seems to be
the best one for good answers!

Check the Sunday papers for sales at stereo dealerships. Sears prolly
has 'em too. You can get a new one, installed, for less than repair
costs and it will have better stability and more features. Matter of
fact, I'd bet $.75 cents you can get NO parts or repairs for your
stereo.

Some years ago. someone stole the cd/radio out of my wifes Honda. The
dealership replacement cost was !!!!!!!940.00!!!!!!!!!!

Just for a kick, call your Lincoln dealer and ask for the price on a
replacement stereo. Be sitting when you call.

Re: Lincoln CD changer

No way in holy hell would I bother with a Linc dealer. My blood pressure's
high enough from stress and ripoff artists, living in NYC. I foresee $1500
for a $150 Sony changer.
Thanks for answering. You're probably right, better to just buy a new
changer. But I found today that Crutchfield sells replacement magazines. I
don't know why I didn't think of them sooner. I'll call them and ask they're
opinion. I've found they're usually pretty honest, and very knowledgeable.
Like you said, worst case is $150 for a new, better changer.
It's just my habit to strain for the cheaper possibility until the bitter
end.
