Your Accord’s audio system is advanced enough to give you some information if an error occurs during operation. This information can help with troubleshooting, as well as understanding why a disc might not play. Here’s a quick summary of the messages you should know:

  1. Heat Error – This is caused by a high temperature in the disc player and should go away when the unit cools off.

  2. Unsupported – This means that a track or file on the disc is not supported or is protected.

  3. Bad Disc Please Check Owner’s Manual Push Eject – This means that the disc should be ejected and inspected for damage.

  4. Mech Error – This indicates a mechanical error, often due to scratched, dirty or damaged discs.

  5. Changer Error – Eject the disc, inspect it, and reload it if it is undamaged and clean.

  6. Check Disc Load – Eject and reload the disc.

  7. Bad Disc Please Check Owner’s Manual – This indicates a problem with the changer servo, and that the disc should be removed.
