    MY05 Radio Problem...

    Hey guys I had a question about a problem I'm having with my radio. I was driving along listening to my stereo and out of no where the cd stopped playing. It showed which disc it was playing but didn't show the track number or time information at all. Then I checked to see if it was just that cd. Nope, it was all of 'em. Then I checked the radio and it works fine. Anybody have any ideas on what it might be. I was thinking the ribbon cable that connects the CD changer to the radio but haven't had time to take the radio apart and check. Oh yeh, its model is the P-133. Any help would be appreciated.

    I will assume that you have the stock in dash 6 disc changer, right? I had a similar problem with mine. One day I switched CDs and it just kept shuffling around but never playing any of the CDs. Common bug for these head units. I believe that the deck is made by Panasonic for Subaru. Will it eject the CDs? Your car should still be under warranty, so take it into the dealer and have them take a look at it. Odds are they will have to order you a new deck and when it comes in they will swap it out with the broken one. After that, I suggest that you start thinking about a new deck anyway, there are plenty of more reliable/higher powered head units out there that you will like better than the stock one.

    Same thing happend to me a few times. If you just eject the CD then wait a few seconds then stick it back in.It will work fine after that.

    My cd changer for some reason does not like burned CDs. They seem to skip every now and then when they don't in my Pathfinder, nor on my laptop. It has NO problem with store bought CDs.

    yeh i plan on getting a kenwood ddx-8017 but until then i'm just using the stock with a LOC. It's weird tho cuz i've tried ejecting everything waiting and putting it back in but still it wont respond. I can hear the cd spinning too. And it doesn't work with store bought cd's either. but the radio works so i guess i'll have to just listen to that crap....or i could jus listen to that great boxer rumble. I think im gunna have to make an appointment...
