  • Error 6 on cd player

    My stock Clarion CD player keeps showing "error 6" when I try to play cd's. Anyone have any advice? Thanks

      That's happened to me. As for the the '04 models, it sometimes has trouble playing burned CDs. Most of the time, it doesn't. But, when I burn a CD using Windows Media Player, the boat along w/ other CD players has trouble w/ it.

      Also, in the back of the manual it has a list of all the errors and what they mean....

        RE: Error 6 on cd player

        From the manual, on the XMD1 and XMD2, error 6:

        "This indicates that the CDís TOC (table of contents) cannot be read, for example because the
        selected disc is upside-down."

        I could not copy the text from the manual for the XMD-3 but the error points to the same cause, the disk is loaded upside-down.

        If you have a CD changer, this error is also due to the disk being upside-down.

            (a small trimer volume near the laser head);if can't ,change laser head,the above is an AV technican rout check for read error CD player.hope above can help.

              Need correct type of CD

              If you're trying to play a CD that doesn't have the small "Compact Disc Recordable" label screened on it, the player will periodically display Error Code 6 and not play the CD.

              A CD I purchased had this problem. I solved it by copying the original CD to a disc that had the "Compact Disc Recordable" label and it works fine.

              I found this solution in the Clarion user manual
