problem details
2008 Mercedes-Benz C350 53,000 mi,
The 6 disc changer in my car has stopped working. I cannot play or eject any of the cd's. The error message "Device Not Available" is constantly popping up on the info screen which I have to clear everytime I want to change the radio station or any other action. The service center at my dealer, without even asking if it was under warranty, told me that its $125 just to get an estimate, which I think is incredibly ridiculous. It would be great to know if there is a DIY fix for this.
Mine too. The only solution from the dealership is to replace the unit costing approximately $2000.00 I don't even use the CD player I just want the annoying popup message to go away!
