    I have a Pioneer DEH-P3000 CD player in my 1993 Ford Probe and it is
    very tempremental. Sometimes it takes the CD and will play it fine
    but other times, like for the past few months, it won't take the CD at
    all. I put it in the slot and it does nothing, I push it in as far as
    I can and it does nothing so I dont get it. But if I push the eject
    button with a CD halfway in the player, it will eject it no problem.
    Does anyone know how to fix this so I can actually use the CD player?

    More than likely a bad connection at the ribbon cable connecting the CD mech
    to the main PCB, but it could also be the photosensors on the mech control
    PCB, a bad connection on the 8V regulator or one of the IR diodes for disc
    sense bad, or the mech controller IC on the cd mech board. You need a
    manual, an oscilloscope and a good volt/ohm meter to properly troubleshoot
    the problem. If you have those it won't be too difficult to fix, if you
    don't have the equipment I'd suggest sending it to a good service shop that
    is familliar with car audio products. If you don't have anyone local you are
    welcome to ship it to us, we are a Pioneer ASC. Our checkout fee is $15.00,
    and does apply to cost of repairs, and we call with an estimate before

    So it sounds like it would probably make sense to just get a new CD
    player. I bought the car 2 years ago and the Pioneer model had been
    installed by the previous owner so I would assume that putting a new
    one in should be relatively easy. Thanks anyways though.

    if you stick with pioneer, more than likely you can keep the harness that is
    already in your vehicle and plug it into the new HU

    i have been thru a deh1500,2500,6400,p650,p740....all using the original
    harness from the deh1500

    should be relatively easy to put in a new HU either way, really...

    putting in a new pioneer may save ya a little effort, but if ya don't like
    pioneer or prefer something else... it's really only a matter of a few
    splices and mounting the deck...

    car audio installation != rocket science
