Hi Friends,

I found my CD player to be malfunctional right after I got my new Pilot this month. It doesn't track the CD after 30-second of play. I went back to the dealer; the dealer replied that the best they could do was to order a Honda refurbished audio system for me. I did not like the idea, but that was the way it was done. Two days later, the dealer called me and told me the system was unavailable, and I had to wait up to several months to get it re-installed!!

My CD player problem is not consistent, which means it sometimes works OK, but sometimes loses the track again. Did anyone encountered the same problem? or have any recommendations?

Thanks,

bjsub: Just to eliminate the obvious things... but did you try another CD? Perhaps that one CD you were playing was bad? Just a thought to rule out the CD as the cause... :8:

Does this happens with all the CDs you put into the player? Also, does this happen with original music CDs? IOW, are any of them burnt CDs? I found that sometimes, with some of my burnt CDs, the player skips a beat or two, but it doesn't happen all the time.

But what I found in some home cd players, it sometimes has a hard time playing or even recognizing burnt CDs.

But I find it highly disconcerting that the dealer said they'd be replacing your cd player in your brand new Pilot with a refurbished unit. That just doesn't sit right with me. You should take it to other dealers and see what they say.

Thanks!!

Hi,

Thank you for your replies! It is very kind of you guys!

I actually tried several CDs, only one of them was a burnt one. I took the car to the dealer; after checking for an hour or so, the technician came to me and recommended a re-installation. The service advisor claimed that the refurbished one was actually better so that I would not run into this problem again because all re-manufactured ones are tested and guaranteed to work.. I will go to another dealer for better deal for sure.

Thanks again.

Well I was going to start a new thread but I saw this one. My CD player works fine with prerecorded disks. but i noticed yesterday that when I was playing a CD-R just around the 3rd song it starts this clicking noise and kind of stops tracking all together. I'm going to try and figure this one out, because freshly burnt CD-R's worked fine. The older burnt CD-R's were the ones giving me grief. Has anyone had this too?

Older in age since recorded, or older type disks.

I have found that some cd player do or do not like certain color CD-R disks. I have been using light green 12x to 48X disks recorded at 4X (Slow computer) and have had no trouble.
I remember have some fairly dark blue disks that were not good in lots of players.

I also bought a back of disks of varying color (red, orange, black, etc.) and only a couple of the colors would work (can't remember which, now). So that can be a problem.

But I've also found that the speed and program used to record can be a problem. My wife recently decided to burn a few disks at 32x. They actually do work in the car, but did not work on a friends home unit. Oh, and they are just your run-of-the-mill silver backed disks (I think rated at 42 or 48x).

well since I'm a Maxell rep:eek: I have only been using Maxell CD-Rs and I think they are greenish in color. As for the age I meant that I recorded them around a year ago. I'm thinking if it might be a heat problem, maybe we need to find out if its because my cd player is on the top of the counsel (because I have the dvd player on the bottom) I believe the Nav systems the cd player is under the ac controls, and might not get all the heat from the sun. We may have to take a poll with people with cd player problems.

it is a good Idea.

The dealer change my Radio and CD player already but on my trip to the reunion on MD I 'll confirm the situation.
