Default CD player died, what's my best option?

After many attempts, using a CD cleaner, and air blower, my CD player
refuses to play any CDs. I have a 96 camry with factory cd player.
You feed 3 Cd's into this holder and slide it into the player. Now,
the player tries to load a cd, and i hear this clicking and grinding
noise and then it spits it back out.

Here are the options I see available:


1. Try and remove the player, and see if there is anything I can do
to fix the problem.


2. Go to an salvage yard, try to find a replacement, and try to
install it.


3. Go to Toyota dealership service and see if they can help.


4. Have someone just install a new player for me.


Which would be the less stressful option to take?

You are just better off buying a new cd player, u can get one for erally
cheap and it would be so much better than trying to fix or replacing the one
u have.

Call the U.S. repair center for the CD player maker (probably
Fujitsu Ten or Panasonic), check the web for address and info; or use an
independent repair center such as Factory Car Stereo Repair, Inc.

absolutely the very best option is a new CD Player from

www.bought4less.com

great selection and low prices.

Bonus, Tell them the make model and year of the car and get a plug-in wire
harness prewired to install.
in-stock harnesses of course.

I had the exact same problem with my '98. The cost to fix it was more
than the cost for a new one - and it skipped alot and didn't play burned
CD's that well even when it was working. I opted for a new MP3/CD player
and ended up with a Kenwood KDC-MPV7019. Paid about $195 then $45 for
installation. That was seven months ago and it has yet to skip once.
Also, you can play CD's full of MP3 files - about 160-180 MP3 songs fit
on a CD. The sound is way better than the stock CD player and the
display is really kewl. Option 4 sounds good.

How do you fit a standard CD player to the double DIN opening of a Camry?

The installer simply left the 3-CD changer installed in the dash
underneath the new MP3/CD player. He offered to pull the old changer and
install a blank faceplate for $10 more but I thought it looked just fine
the way it was. Although, I'm not particular about the way it looks, I'm
more interested in the way it performs. And it does perform!
