    My Eclipse head unit is screwed up already, what is wrong with it?

    Today it randomly stopped reading CD's. It just keeps blinking "Reading" like 6 or 7 times, then pops the cd back out and says "Info 3" which means the CD is dirty. Except i tried it with brand new CD's and it still says that. What is wrong with it? It is an Eclipse 5444. The thing is also still under warranty but I am hoping that maybe there is something I can do myself so i don't have to send it in and wait a month to get my head unit back.

    how should I clean it? Put in a cleaning cd or something? And i doubt that is the problem. I was listening to one cd and it was fine, then i popped it out and switched the cd, and that cd didn't work. And now no CD i put in it works.

    somewhere on the front or behind the faceplate there should be a 'reset' button. its a small hole somewhere , just big enough to insert a pin or pencil tip. try pushing that? you will lose all your settings but it might restore normal cd operation.

    Because Eclipse will end up sending it to them anway. If the deck is still under warranty from an authorized Eclipse dealer then you need to talk to them. UR is great...they warranty their work for 6 months. My 8053 had a similar problem, it sent it to them and it has worked perfectly ever since.
