CR-V 6 - CD troubles

Am having to replace my 2002 cr-v CD player for the 2nd time in 2 months because of mechanical problems -- won't eject or change CDs.
Was told that CDs would eventually be
returned. Meanwhile, I'm wondering what might have caused the jam up.

home labeled cd's will cause that problem every time Chip

Unhappily, I can accept that. But that begs two related questions -- is that also a problem with home changers and, if not, what makes it different in autos? Not likely to be heat because the CDs show no characteristic signs of being overheated.

I think the difference is mainly related to size. Home units have room for a larger drive mechanism while space is at a premium in cars. The label takes too much room and jams. The home units I have are tray based. Auto units normally suck the CD in and spit it out... hopefully.

Interesting thought; however, there were only 3 CDs in the changer when the jamming occurred. Seems more likely that the CDs are sticking together.

I don't know the internal workings of the changers. My wife put a labeled CD in our Toyota 6 CD changer and I was lucky to be able to grab the edge and get it out of the little slot. I think even a single labeled CD can jam inside some units.

Just received word from someone else owning a Toyota who had her 6-CD changer jam with NON-labeled, commercial CDs and wasn't as fortunate as your wife. Time for another recall notification ... or a portable CD player sitting in the front seat. -- digger

I have troubles with my 2002 CRV Cd player every now and then too. All of a sudden it starts skipping and then it stops. Also sometimes I get the BUSY message. It does get very annoying when it happens. I have considered replacing it with a aftermarket player.

Mine also occasionally skips and stops. Have begun playing only single CDs in two varieties -- those which are store bought and those which have been burned -- BOTH w/o any homemade labels -- to compare skipping and stopping as well as confirm freedom from jamming.
