Hi guys. New member, first post. I have a 2005 HSE which I purchased about two months ago. It has a few problems and I feel some of them I could cure myself, but need help with the major one at the moment. Yesterday I took out the 6CD changer. Took quite a while as some of you know there are a lot of panels to take off. Anyway, I cured the fault with the changer (broken gear) and installed it back today. Not in the dash, but on the seat just to see if the player works. After switching the car on I now get the "Range Rover" screen on the display but it doesn't go out and display the normal mode of nav. or radio. Is there some re-boot I have to do before I can clear the screen. The player was out of the car for about 18 hours. Boy, I would like to get this fixed and move on to other problems. Thanks for any help you can give me. Mike.

Recheck all you connectors on the back of the CD changer. On my 2008 at least it's part of the MOST optical network and if one of the links in that network isn't connected right the screen will hang up. Also do the tried and true reset method, aka, disconnect the negative battery terminal, wait 5 min and disconnect the positive and leave it disconnected for about 1 hr or so. Be careful don't this as some models have a explosive battery disconnect in case of accident or roll over. You can tell if it has it by the yellow connector going to the one battery cable.

With the CD changer on the seat, how did you plug in the MOST (fiber optic) connector?

If the MOST connector remained unplugged, you'll get exactly what you got.

The MOST connector is needed to close the looped ICE circuit.

A 2005 doesn't have the MOST fiber optics. I would try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. You might also try driving it around the block, I've had weird stuff happen that corrected it self just by driving it.

Thanks Mr E., good to know (admittedly don't know very much about the earlier [BMW engined] L322's so normally stay out of such threads).

Hi Guys. I am the one who originally posted this thread. As Al Gore said, "Keep it simple stupid". KISS. After trying several things to try to resolve the problem of the CD player not working, I decided to go back to basics. Check power going to the CD player. No power. Check fuse. Blown. Replace fuse. All working again. Thanks to the guys who responded to my question. I am sure to have lots more to ask as the length of my ownership grows.
Mike.
