I'd bet it's dead. Those CD players are notorious for crapping out, and
OEM replacements are screamingly expensive (IIRC, around $1200, assuming
you can still find a dealer that has one in stock). Do a Google search
and you'll find dozens of outfits that offer repairs on these units,
which I've never tried but have heard that the results can be mixed.
The OEM CD player in our '99 Accord died somewhere around 2004. Since I
had Hondacare (I bought the car used from a Honda dealer in 2003), it
was replaced under warranty at no charge.
They usually start displaying error codes before they die - did yours
show anything on the front panel besides track 00?
You may want to check with these folks if you decide to try having it
repaired, assuming that it turns out to be something beyond your ability
They seem to have satisfied customers.
Well the lens cleaner didn't work because I can't get it to play. Same
crap, track 00, then spits it out. $9.00 shot.
I probably just live w/o the cd player. 1998 w/230,000 miles, not sure how
much longer it will run.
