problems with my cd player

i have the stock 2004 cd/mp3/tape radio in my truck and over the past few months its been acting up and if i listen to a cd for a while it stops working and on the screen it says ERROR 17 and it ejects the cd. no big deal just put the cd back in and it would work again. but now that doesnt work i tried putting in new cds, old cds, burned cds, that ERROR 17 pops up. it only does it with regular cds, mp3's it will play fine. does anybody know what ERROR 17 means or what the problem might be.

i think it might be time to go alpine

warranty, even if you want to change it, get a new one first so you have a good one to sell or keep for backup

find a buddy with a similar truck that IS under warranty, swap the radios until he gets the new one, and bam.

Haha I've been out of warranty since February and mines an '04. Actually I was out before that but since I was working for Ford I could make up a mileage under 36.

I had a very similar problem with my Mach MP3..... Sucks that your warranty is out, the Ford dealer here replaced the defective deck with a new one...

no, you could do that but a spray in dampener would be the application for that. the product I'm talking about is a "sound diffuser" not a sound dampener.

9 out of 10 times the Ford CD6s go bad because someone used paper labels on their homemade CDs. This WILL destroy the mechanism, as will "scratch guard" coatings and rings. Use a permanent marker only.

If you don't believe me, page through your owners manual, to the end of the stereo section. Theres about 2/5ths of a page devoted to this little gem.
