CD Player skipping

hello everyone,

Recently, about a week ago, my CD player started skipping. At first I thought it was the media but I switched the CD to a non burned disk and it still does that. I am wondering, has anyone had this problem before? and if so, is switching the unit the only viable option?

Is it an in-dash or cd changer. My cd changer has skipped since day one.

Changers can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. They usually have a switch to set it up for the direction of your install. If the switch is in the wrong direction you will get skips. You should check the switch and check for loose connections -- unplug, clean (blow into the connector), and reconnect the cabling.

The indash ones (particularly the Blaupunkt-made ones) seem to have a tendency to start doing that over time. I had mine replaced. Mine also stopped sucking and ejecting CDs consistently.

My system has been okay until recently when I popped a CD in and it skipped like crazy after a couple of tracks. (in dash CD player) I put the same cd in another car and it was fine. The funny thing is the car's a year and a half old but with only 10K on it.

Did you get yours fixed to your satisfaction, and what's to say it won't happen again in a year or so when I'm out of warranty?

Thanks, all..

Lansing

Just did a search (like a good 'fester) and found this thread! My CD player, in -dash, started skipping last night. I guess I'll need to get the unit replaced. Thanks for posting this info! Anyway, BTTT!

I am wondering if anyone else is having a problem with this. I did call BMWNA just now, and they have not heard from the thread starter about this problem, nor have they collected a lot of data on this problem. I am not seeing a TSB for it either. Am I missing it? Thanks.

I'd like to know the same thing. The CD skipping problem for me is intermittent (as any good mechanical problem is). Now the thing's better, but there are times when it's skipping all over the place. I guess I'll have to bring it in before my warranty's up.

Let me know what you find out!
