I came on here tonight because I was ready to take my 2005 SC430 into a car audio repair place tomorrow. Then I remembered the forum! One last shot, I figured.
A few weeks ago, I removed CD 4 and suddenly, the whole CD player began buzzing LOUDLY every time I turn on the ignition (and sometimes while driving!) It's so loud the people talking to me on the phone can hear it! Shocking! And SO annoying!
I just couldn't take that rattle anymore. Nothing would play. I could neither eject nor load. I couldn't even get the little door to open. (When this happened once before, the door DID open. I just loaded another CD and they all popped out just fine and I was happy...)
Somebody somewhere on the forum said his jams if he doesn't remove them in order - 1-2-3...
He may have a point!
So I read all the threads here and went to the car ready to really hit the little place above the charger super-hard if needed. That seemed my only option. I figured I'd start off with a light tap, then a medium hit and then really whack it. What do I have to lose if it is broken anyway?
Well, I turned on the ignition (buzzzzzzzz); held Eject and barely tapped the thin strip right above the CD player door and pop! Out came a CD!!! No more buzzing! They all came out. I loaded them. And they all play again! Miraculous!
THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to these forums! It's been so helpful several times now!
