Default 2000 Camry indash factory radio/6 cd changer A56811

Camry premium sound 6 CD changer got stuck (won't play any CDs either) and
now would not eject. It has Error 3 message, what does this mean? I think
replacement is over $500 plus labor at dealer. Anyway to fix? How do you
remove this in dash changer?

Thanks

Having the same problem with my CD changer. Itís out of a 2000 Camry
(bought on ebay) but installed with a custom wire harness into my í90
LandCruiser. Because itís a custom install, the dealerís not going to
touch it. The only alternatives seem to be either going back to ebay
for another unit, or sending it in to Factory Car Stereo Repair
http://www.carstereohelp.com/toyota.htm
, they charge a flat $275.00 to fix this unit. Iím hoping to not have
pull the whole dash again, just to remove the unit. Anyone know what
"ERR3" means? Is there anything in the Camry manual? Help!

I had exactly the same problem today, and thru a search was brought to
this thread. Exact same radio (in a Land Cruiser), exact same error 3
problem. I was able to solve it myself, so hopefully you can do the
same.

I tried method 1. push eject/load/turn the radio on/off. Nothing.
Method 2. Pull the fuse for the radio, wait a few minutes and replace.
Nothing. This one has worked for me in the past.

Method 3. Turn the radio off. Turn it on, while you hear the whirring
noises smack the dashboard above the radio. Boom, CD's are recognized,
and the eject button spit them out. Not the most scientific way of
fixing, but I bet it saved me a bundle of money.

Good luck to all,

~~Andy

You don't have to pull the whole dash, just the unit itself. Read Mike R's
post above on pulling the unit out or go to www.crutchfield.com.

For me, although the Toyota 6 CD unit changer is nice, it's too damn
expensive to replace or repair. I would look into quality head units like
the Alpines - you loose the 6 CD changer and one DIN space but gain MP3,
satellite radio and changer unit ready, preamp out, subwoofer out, remote
control and a few other things dependent on your selected unit.
