RCD 210 CD Error

Postby Jelly-tot » Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:29 am

Hi guys.

The RCD 210 radio on my 2011 Polo6 wont play CDs anymore. It keeps giving me the CD Error message. I have tried all formats of CDs to no assistance. Is there anything I can do to remedy this or anyone help fix it. Should I just enjoy the water and bread for the upcoming months and buy a new radio?

Thanks for your response in advance.

I'm not sure, what CD's do you use copy or originals? if copy's then the laser is not reading the CD anymore (damaged), maybe send it in for repairs or get aftermarket.

Well, the radio just wont play both copied and original discs at all. Whatever type of CD inserted I get the CD Error message. I take it the lens is damaged then. I'm tired of listening to Metro FM day in and day out, gotta save up and get me an after market one. Any recommendations?

Alpine, Kenwood or Pioneer are good head units but you can go for the Sony or JVC but personally I don't like them.

IF your RCD 210 unit has failed - they are relatively cheap to get - However I would just jump straight into a RCD 510 - I did that on my Polo 6r. Ripped out hte 210, popped an OEM RCD 510 in to the same slot. No extra wireing, no nothing, was literally plug and play, and I got hte benefit of having a 6CD changer and an SD card slot.

RCD 210 will cost about R1200 - R1800 2nd hand, and a RCD 510 will cost about R3k maybe R3.5k.
