I have a 2003 SC430 I am going to either trade or sell. Yesterday I went to remove the CDs I had in the player and they apparently got stuck. One came out fine, but the next one didn't. These are all COMMERCIAL CDs, NOT ones I have made - they don't have any labels other than the ones they came with.

I hadn't played the CD player in over a year, I am sure. I don't care about replacing the audio, just want my CDs out!! I think I took the front off the inside of the car once for something, but don't remember. I'm pretty handy so anyone remember where there is a link to removing the dash and the audio??

I think this car is alive and is mad at me for selling it!! :-)

For anyone who runs across this, I found the complete directions on how to remove the in-dash radio here!

I was able to remove the audio player and get my CDs out! The only potentially serious problem I ran into was the fact the faceplate of the audio player is connected to the guts by a ribbon cable that is the most seriously flawed designed cable I have ever seen. There are MANY ways of designing ribbon cable - this one is made so anyone who is not VERY, VERY CAREFUL will ruin it and with that, by by radio!! - not to mention about $1000 dollars to replace!!

Luckily I'm pretty handy with PC boards and was able to fix the problem with the ribbon cable, but not after sweating a bit! That Lexus has to go out of their way to design products in this fashion is just wrong!

At any rate, I have it all working just fine without spending an unnecessary $1000 dollars! And THAT makes it all worth while!!

Who puts labels on CDs/DVDs anymore? The good old sharpie marker does the trick just fine

I have produced many thousands of burned CDs and DVDs as part of my business, starting in 2002 when burning a disk was as much art as science. At first I used full-face printed labels which worked great--for a while. After a few years, though, my DVDs would play for about half of the program, then hang. The problem was that the full-face label would gradually shrink over time, very slightly warping the disk.

One alternative that emerged was to use a new technology that allowed one to "burn" text and graphics on the top of the disk. But it takes many minutes to do so, and the results are greyscale and pretty boring.

Another option emerged in which the top of the disks were coated with a thin white layer that could be printed upon via a suitable inkjet printer (I swear by Canon). At first the coatings were poor and one could smear a graphic by just running a wet thumb over it. Nowadays, however, several companies make gorgeous glossy coatings that take ink nicely and yet are waterproof. The results can look as good as commercially-printed disks.

By the way, if you choose to burn your CDs or DVDs, it makes a huge difference which vendor you choose. Most disks are junk and will throw off many errors after a few years of aging (you can test the error rate with third-party utilities on your PC). The best are made by companies like Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden. NEVER have had a failure with one of these.
