Default DVD/CD Changer Busted

I don't know how it happened, all was working fine until I go and try to load another disc(had 5 of the 6 slots taken). I pushed the load button and the player sounds like it is trying to locate an empty slot for about 2 minutes, I finally get a "DVD Error" message. I didn't push the disc in my hand early or anything, I just waited for the light to turn green and it never did.

I then tried to unload one of the discs, it couldn't find it, couldn't find any. Always got the "DVD Error" message after about 2 minutes of hearing the changer churning. Now I can't listen to music using my DVD/CD Player, no CD will work, no CD will eject, no CD will load. Don't know what the cause of this is. I tried hitting the sides to see, nothing. I seriously don't want to take it to the dealer and have them pry open the NAV because they won't show the time/care as if it was their own car.

Were they burned discs?

I had the same thing happen to me when I tried playing a particular DVD-A disc. It would load in and not play or eject out. So what I end up doing was take another CD. Press the eject button and while it's start making the noise like it's about to eject the disc, I would actually try and push in the CD I'm holding (but not all the way in). By doing so, it would trigger the changer to spit out the problem disc. In fact I did this twice, because I was stupid enough to reload the problem disc back in hoping it'll play but instead it gave me the same error.
Goodluck

OMG, Thank You so much, this totally worked, I got kinda scared, I stuck it in basically all the way and couldn't grip the CD with ease, so finally after getting a grip, it slid out with the trouble disc. You saved me a trip the dealer

Anybody have any other tricks to try? I'm having this exact problem, but when I press 'eject', the only thing that happens is the amber lights start blinking and that's about it. No 'whrrrr-ing' or any sounds that might indicate a CD is coming out. In fact, it seems like the door's jammed or something because when I tried to insert another CD in, to trigger the changer to spit out a disk, the CD door wouldn't even open. Looks like a visit to the dealer is in my near future..... :|

I had the same problem, took it over to the dealer, and they told me not to use Cd-Rs, as the layers are slightly different on them. I told him most of my music is on a cd-r, so he said to buy a particualr brand which is fujifilm audio cd-r.
eversince than no problems at all...

Oh fudge. My CD changer isn't responding to anything, and is giving me "Error 3" whenever I try to eject any disk. I guess this will be my first real need to take my 350 in to the dealer.

Lexus has had so many issues with the in-dash 5 disc changer for many years. Most of the gen 1's had issues. I went through two under warrenty myself. Not sure if Pioneer makes the unit for the 2 gen IS.

I did alot of bootleg CD trading, and I always insisted on media made in Japan, not the cheap Taiwan junk, which is probably why your dealer steered you to FujiFilm.

No burnt CDs or DVDs, and mine ate my CDs and did not want to spit it out or load them. It happened after a year of ownership only.

The CD/DVD player was replaced under warranty. No problems since.
