    cd error 3 on symphony II head unit??

    just picked up my new s3 and was listening to some cds. all was well untill i changed the cd and it jammed or something.. and then said 'error 3'

    now the cd player wont do anything.. wont eject, swap cds, play...nothing.. just comes back to saying error 3 after about 20 seconds! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img]

    this means the cd is upside down..

    but i dont think your that stuipid.

    and it also means that the head unit now needs a new laser if this happens all the time...

    sorry fella....

    Re: cd error 3 on symphony II head unit??

    cd isnt upsidedown as it was playing fine.. i then selected a different cd and then went back to number 1 again and it all froze.

    i reckon its just jammed up?? why would a foulty lazer mean that none of the cds will eject or anything

    can i get to the mechanism easy if i get the HU out?

    dont think you understand... this is the symphony2 head unit with the built in cd changer.. it was working fine then i pressed the button to change cds..you heard it working.. then said error 3.

    no when you turn the unit off and on you hear the cd changer trying to do something but then just says error 3.

    cant eject any of the 5 cds in there or move from disc to disc

    how do i get the head unit out?

    oops sorry didn't read your post properly!

    Yeah it does sound like its jammed!

    You can buy the removal tools from Audi or you can get some from halfords.

    Have a look in this forum as removing the HU has been discussed before.

    Good luck
    Rich.

    jedi... understeer?


    u must be putting the power down in the wrong places...

    mines got loads if you put the power down at points but if you learn what makes it understeer then you can avoid it and use it to get the best out your car.

    The symphony units go on ebay from time to time.

    Other than that, if you do take the Audi warranty out, would such a thing be covered [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]. I know if my cd kept getting stuck i'd be straight round to audi asking for a unit under warranty.
