CD Changer Skipping
Thanks to Randy Smith:
Well, I found out what was wrong with MY CD changer anyhow, and I suspect
it could help many others. A friend who works for an unnamed company
drops in my office today (we were talking about car stereo goods the other
day) with a Ford factory CD changer. I take it, look at it, push
on the magazine, IT MOVES! The thing is damped in ALL DIRECTIONS.
We go look at my car, no apparent damping. So tonight I yanked my
changer out and put in the new one. Quick test drive, no skipping
at all yet and it reads all discs without thinking twice. I start
inspecting the old one and it is damped in 3 directions. I set it
down and push on it, it slides around real nice. I look at the label
on the back:
COMPACT DISC CHANGER
SOFTWARE LEVEL : 6.2
MOUNTING : HORIZONTAL
Anyone else have any questions about this? So, the one I have
here will likely work great, IF IT'S MOUNTED AS DIRECTED!!!! Looking
at the label on top of the changer, I think this one is a replacement.
There's a label on the top that has an order number and is dated 9/10/97.
My car went into service in May of 97.
