I've had great success in the past at opening up various CD units and watching the mechanisms as they play or load/unload CD's. In most cases I've been able to track down the problem to a broken drive belt (took old one to a repair shop where they compared its length and size to replacements and sold me a new one for 4 or 5 dollars) or a ripped CD label that has stuck in the mechanism, and such. This isn't a job for everyone, but if you have patience, small screwdrivers, needle-nosed pliers, dental picks, etc., and a certain amount of mechanical/electronic knowhow you can 90% of the time see and fix an obvious problem. And if the problem isn't obvious, you're halfway to getting the unit to a repair shop or replacing it with a used/new unit. Good Luck!

ok..what kind of repair shops would have the parts needed for a repair? are there Lexus certified shops or anything in particular that i should look for in my area? i live in the bay area and pretty much have many things accessible..any advice? would a local car audio shop be able to assist me?
