I just picked up my RNS-E unit today. Got it installed and everythings working. But when I went to pull the Nav disc out to got make a backup copy. The LCD screen would not close and the motor kept running on the DVD ROM slot, like it was wanting a disc?
Is this normally what happens? I put in a CD Audio disc so I could close the screen and turn it off. It was like it was hungry for some disc's, so I fed it!
That is exactly what my DVD unit does, and I keep it fed at all times with a disc. Mine had a small lever and spring fall out of the DVD player which I think is causing the unit to act that way. I have explored replacing the DVD drive or sending it to a repair shop, but it's a minor inconvenience at this point. When a DVD is in the drive, it seems to work just fine.
Well when I open the screen the count says "1" as its closing I get "255" and then it will go to "0" when the screen is closed with the Nav disc in.
With nothing in the DVD ROM, the screen will not close at all, and it just sits there and you can hear the motor running.
Now when I put in a Audi CD I get a display that says "Note, Please insert Navigation DVD". It will play the Radio, but it will not play the Audio CD, but it did play it earlier. Now it won't go off that screen with the Audio CD in. But as "mbrooks" says as long as the Nav Disc is in it works fine?
Sounds really strange. I haven't heard about something like this so far and the only reason I can think of why is asks for he navi DVD might be because it's in active route guidance? When you stop route guidance while the navi DVD is in, switch to CD and then swap the disks, does it work? Sorry for not having a better answer...
