eahoffmann: I had the same problem of discs stuck in the 6 disc changer. I was able to take apart the entire DVD system and get stuck DVDs out. Unfortunately, I'm stuck at the "reassembling" phase. Can't figure out exactly how the "finger" tab disc holders should align and which direction to have all of the moving parts when putting the top DVD holder piece back on. Are you still working on your DVD player? If so, I'd like to share notes. Did you ever hear from "jmok_fixedit"?

I fixed my 2005 mopar 6 disc CD changer today (2005 Town and Country). I was having the standard stuck discs and flashing lights. It took about 5 hours. I don't have time to go through it all but if anyone out there still has questions let me know. I'm happy to cover the highlights if it will help others. I'm pretty amazed Dodge / Chrysler has a product this lousy out there.

I am dealing with this issue right now. There are disks in the player and the player is trying access one of them. The whole time the van is running, the DVD player is running as well. I can't play any DVDs and can't get it to respond to button presses.
I have not been brave enough to take it apart, as my usual struggle is at the "reassembling" phase of such projects. Let me know how it turns out!
#134 of 138 Radio unit blinks off
Aug 15, 2012 (6:00 pm)
I have an REN unit in my 2009 T&C that has started turning on the MyGig system. It will go completely off and then come back one. Sometimes it will do it every 3 minutes, sometimes it takes longer. Sometimes the screen will just go black, whereas other times the unit reboots and the Chrysler logo reappears.
I have application 9.214, grace notes 881
The system is 6826 006 3.3
I've visited http://mofv.com/mygig/ and downloaded the most recent application available. I'm burning it to a data CD now to try the update. This started just a day ago but has been consistent during the day.
Any thoughts? The stations are not being lost, just the unit is turning off and turning back on. I feel there is a loose connection somewhere but I don't know where to start. Again this is a new problem and we have not had any service done on the car prior to this problem.
#135 of 138 Radio Random Reboot update...
Aug 16, 2012 (7:34 am)
I had posted about my radio blinking off, or randomly rebooting. I think there is an issue with the internal HDD as I can get the unit to freeze up by trying to access the HDD. Thanks to the http://mofv.com/mygig/ site I was able to download the latest application and Gracenotes updates and apply them to the head unit.
Today we will see what's happening and if it made it any better. I found one other case of this happening and they had the same version of both. REN 9.214 and GraceNotes 881. Well I'm not updated to 2.292 which I believe is the last of the REN updates. We will see if this helps the function of the unit.
I did try to erase all the music off the HDD, it seemed to take forever and never completed on it's own. I ended up deleting some songs manually which now shows a clean drive with almost 29 gig of data.
So if anyone has any thoughts please share~

Hey there. I was able to get the unit reassembled but the untitled still doesnt work. I had to take two of the broken little disc out. They are the discs that the CDs move up and down on. However, I thought I could reassemble it and maybe work without having 6 disc and work with 4 instead. That was a no go. Maybe I didnt put together right. Who knows....

If you can give some details on the reassemble, that would be great. I think I didn't reassemble it right. So I still have the blinking lights.

We deleted everything off the internal HDD and the head unit hasn't given us any problems. All updates were a success and the unit is performing just fine. I do believe the internal HD is the problem, but I don't need it and would rather not take it in to fix something I don't use.
SO I have not idea what the real solution is, however removing the data off the HD resulted in the unit working right.
