Default 6 CD Changer not working!

The cd changer in the S6 has never worked since I got the car. Initially, the head unit just displayed "NO CD" when I pressed the MODE button to switch from the radio. I pulled the changer out to check the connection and now I can hear the cds flipping about in there, but all I get this weird Error message with every cd that's put into the changer cartridge:







I know this is a longggg shot, but does anyone have a functioning changer that they could lend me to rule out the head unit being at fault? I'd be happy to pay for return postage.

Many thanks,

Craig

I've got a 6 CD changer sitting here , audi part number is 4BO 035 111A

Came out of an A3 apparently but was incompatible with the radio I had in the Cabrio a while back. The part number of yours is not visible in any of your pictures .

If its any good , you are more than welcome to it.

My A4 had the same issue when I bought it - the previous owner said that it worked for a year when he bought the car from new, then just stopped and gave an error indication. - I took the whole unit apart 1 day to find a CD actually stuck inside it - might be worth a go?

That's really appreciated, Frank I'll unscrew the mounting frame tomorrow and check that serial number.

I'll also have a peer inside and see if there is a cd stuck in there - it seems to make the right noises when selecting discs but you never know!

Thanks for your ideas, chaps!

Well, nothing lurking inside the unit, so that's that one crossed off. Here's the serial number on the unit - I found one on ebay but it's in the USA and doesn't exactly come with a guarantee, especially with a potential Trans Atlantic journey on the cards!

Here's the serial number:



Frank, if you could get a quote for postage up here then I'd be delighted to take that one off of your hands - I'll happily return it if it isn't compatible with the head unit.

Pm on it's way . . .

That's what's wrong Craig, it will only play cd's by The Monkeys

Look at the word in the middle on the right hand side of the label
