    Hi,

    My RNS-D sat nav says "cd defective etc" i ejected disc and cleaned it but still doesnt work.

    Its either the laser or disc

    I am hoping someone will help me, does anyone have the same disc i can try just to eliminate if its the disc or laser???

    Its 2003 DX Disc

    I am located in Manchester and will meet up where ever you like

    I will just pop disc in, if it works i will buy new disc. If not replace laser.

    Thanks

    I'm 99% sure that'll be your disc mate. I had exact same thing come up on mine a few months back, sometimes it worked but most of the time it didn't. Bought a genuine disc off of eBay and it's been absolutely perfect ever since.

    I'm up in handforth dean on Saturday delivering to our depot there in the truck, I could bring my disc up with me for you to try if you wanna meet me there? I'm usually there at about 1pm and there for about an hour.

    All fixed now people :)

    Az met up with me to try his CD and it wouldnt read his either :(

    So i went home, removed from car, removed the top off unit, cleaned laser with cotton buds amd it was full of sh*t!!!

    Put it back in car and it loaded up first time!!!!

    Oh and i tried one of them cd's with little brush bit on and it still didnt work!! It was that full of **** it needed doing manually with cotton buds.

    BIG thanks to Az for meeting up with me :)

    No problems Paul! Glad you got it sorted and it got tracked down to the laser.

    Did you order that 2008 disc?

    Nice one paul! Where did you get that from in the end? That's a good price for a brand new disc.

    Sounds like you got a good deal there mate! I paid £40 for a second hand one off eBay last year, admittably it was in completely unmarked condition but still wasn't brand new in the packaging.
