    Dear All,
    The cd player in my 08 EX-CDTi (SAT NAV) will no longer play cds. It says "focus error" when you try to play cds. Everything else works in the headunit. I have tried two different cd lens cleaners with no luck, Has anyone else had this problem and how have they managed to resolve it?
    Thanks in advance.

    @agadza I assume you are trying to play original CDs and not copies ? Correct ?

    Yes, all original CDs that used to play with no problems.
    Things I have tried include a disc cleaner, a lens cleaner and taking off the battery for 30 min.s in a bid to get the player to reconfigure

    No CDs play at all, both original and copied.

    @agadza - I had a similar error (it just said 'error' or 'no disc' when loading CDs) on my home hi-FI Marantz CD player last year, and it needed a new laser.

    Then potentially the laser is kaput and you will need that replacing.

    I'm guessing that the unit is either Alpine or Pioneer, so try and find a local Alpine or Pioneer repair place, call them and ask them about it.
