02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

The display shows "CD ERROR" and will not eject/ load / or play.
There are 4 CD's in the unit and nothing works.
All other functions are OK.
This is a 2002 explorer.
Any ideas?
TIA

Re: 02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

My wife tried to play a CD we burned on our computer and the player
"ate" it. It took several tries hitting the eject button but it
finally spit it out. Upon further review the owners manual says not to
play home-made CDs as some of the blank media are slightly thinner
(don't know if that's true or not} but it certainly doesn't like home
cooking!

Re: 02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

I have had no problem with "home-made CD's. One definite no-no is to
use those glue on paper labels on your CD's. The owners' manual for
my '05 says not to use them. I have had some problems with them
coming loose and have not used them for years.

Re: 02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

Same here, I've had no problem with home made CDR/W's in my '98 factory
changer and/or in-dash player. No labels should be common sense. The
OP may want to refer to his '02 Ford Audio Guide for troubleshooting the
'CD ERROR' message. My '98 Audio Guide has a list of error messages,
and their meanings, for this purpose, but not specifically said message.

Good luck,

Steven

Re: 02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

I have same issue 2002 XLT. Problems predominates with "Recorded Book" CD
rental. They put a protective layer of something on to prevent scratching.
I wrote to Ford Tech people but they were not much help other than to
indicate it was a known issue as I recall.. I have had an intermittent
problem along the same lines with regular music CDs that I suspect may be
related to higher temps in the unit. Whenever I have this problem I have
to hit "eject" and as soon as the door slot opens slide I slide a jack knife
blade in the unit along the top of the CD and apply downward pressure with
the flat of the blade while also pulling out. Works every time (after a few
tries sometime) but a major pain in the butt. Seems that there is too much
friction with the top of the CD on whatever it rubs against.

Re: 02 explorer Audiophile six CD errors

Is the the load/eject slot door closed or open? I had this same issue
a few weeks ago. My door happened to be open. I looked inside and
could see a CD partially loaded. I used a small screwdriver to lightly
push the CD. The player proceeded to load the CD properly and all was
well. No problems since. That problem occured with a "real" music CD
BTW.
