It means a cd is jammed inside the changer. Take a ruler and shove it into the changer, there should be a release mechanism that will allow the magazine to pop out manually. Then turn on the changer without the magazine to "reset" it, and then put in the magazine.

hope this helps.

Yes, this is true. Not all, but most changers do have a manual release that is accessed that way. I use a metal back bracket, but a thin ruler will work fine. Insert it below the catridge, and in the middle. Carefully work the ruler in and out, and with a little luck; the cartidge will pop out.

If your changer is ejecting properly, make sure the cd's are not upside-down.

Does it say "E" on other sources, also ? Meaning, if you select FM radio, does the "E" go away, and the radio works as normal ?

Hopefully it's just "E" for Error in reading the changer, not something more serious with the headunit itself.

I've had something similar with a Pioneer setup, everything worked but the changer - turns out a disc was fed onto the spindle, but the arm couldn't bring it back onto the plastic platter ! Changers can be picky little varmints...

good luck.

it says "E" only on the cd changer mode. but radio doesn't work either but that's a short in the antenna. i don't think a cd is jammed in their, it just won't play any cd. you know it checks all the slots when you put in the magazine, mine does that too. just thought that might help someone.
