Cd's get stuck in my cd player, when i press eject the CD comes out a little but then goes back inside, (it dose eventualy come out after pressing the eject button 100 times) has anyone else had this problem. this might be a stupid question but the dealer should fix this right? Is this somthing that is coverd under warentee?

I have not had any probs with my CD player yet, but this is definitely covered under your "bumper to bumper" warranty. That's what the dealer told me anyway.

Sounds like something is messed up on the deck. Take that badboy back to your dealership, it is definately covered.

The dealer may choose to fix the head unit for you, but it is not covered by the warranty. The stereo and tires are covered by warranties from their respective manufacturers (Pioneer and Firestone/Bridgestone). One of the salespeople at my dealer told me the head unit was covered under the car's warranty as well, but this most likely isn't the case.

My mom's cd player did that in her highlander and they replaced the cd player under warranty.

so...if its not coverd under the "dealers" warrenty, dose that mean if they choose not to fix it ,i have to go though pioneer myslef or pay for it.

Like I said, they may choose to fix it "under warranty" -- i.e., to keep customers happy -- but since it has its own warranty through Pioneer it's most likely that Scion's warranty doesn't cover it.

My point is just that it would be a good idea to call the service department over at the dealership first and ask if it's "covered under warranty." If they say it's not, then yes, your option would be to send it to Pioneer for repairs.

Hmm...I haven't had a CD get stuck yet...but I do have problems getting burned CDs to play sometimes when they have VERY VERY small scratches (most likely caused by the sunvisor CD case I have).

No big deal...but it's annoying when it keeps skipping my fave songs and I can hardly see scratches of any kind...

hey loopylady..
might want to try a different brand of cds.. plus when you burn the cd.. are you using nero or roxio? i tried burning by dragging and dropping (udf data format) and thought there was something wrong.. read the manual.. doh! iso9660 and joliet standards are what works in the cd-player (for mp3 players)..

now are you just talking regular audio cds not mp3 cds? roxio or nero should do fine there.. i think if that's what is not working.. try two things..

1st.. try changing the brand of your cd's.. i've been using sony and works fine.. verbatim didn't work too well.. and lower the burn speed of the cd.. don't burn at maximum.. try a slower burn speed

the 2nd thing is to get a cd lens cleaner, like from radio shack.. it looks like a regular cd but it has brushes on the bottom that clean the laser inside.. i was wondering why mine wasn't playing, then there was what appeared to be silver strands on the cds holding there by static cling... it was from that felt covering protecting the cd opening (look close you'll see it).. those were on the cd.. doh!

i kinda think those two things would help solve your problem
let us know if that works..

Well, they are regular audio burns....(I haven't gotten up to speed on the whole mp3 thing and getting stuff on the net for free...hehe).

My boyfriend made them for me, actually...so I'm not sure what all he did to make them, but I'll check out what kind they are and play around with a few different types.

Also, I haven't noticed any strands on the CDs, but I did notice the felt covering when I was putting some in and out, so if I keep having the problem I'll definitely check out that lens cleaner.

Thanks much for the advice! When I get some time to mess around with it I'll update ya' if I find a "fix."

Thanks again!
