RB 1 Disc Error


Thanks for all the input on RB1 radio......I have tried all but failed what is my next step that would not be so expensive.
I have bought a new Nav disc, the last release Part # 05064033AL from 2013 on ebay, then I cleaned the lens with alcohol and q-tips and then used compressed air in the unit which was very clean and my last attempt was to buy a DVD/CD lens cleaner. I still have the same problem from when I started out......*Reading disc error message* What would be my next step before I purchase a new unit. Please help me out. Thanks !

Thank you to those that came up with this and a special thanks for the above photo. I forgot to take one as I was disassembling mine.

I found an easier method to hold the lower of the three pieces up while reattaching them together, thread. I took a long length, about 20" or so and taped it to the rear surface of the unit. I then threaded through the little slot on the end opposite the screw and then back under the raised area where the screw goes. I taped the free end to the back of the unit as well. I inserted the lower metal piece through the opening and kept hold of the thread "loop" that was on the side towards the front of the radio. Keeping tension on the thread kept the piece up and allowed me to add the black plastic disk, insert the top metal part and then screw the assembly together.

I quick test showed that it is, at least for now, back to a working state.

Again, thanks all.

Speed costs money, how slow do you want to go?

Is the screw at the 6 o'clock position in the picture above? I got that far but after that couldn't figure out what to do. I wasn't sure what should or shouldn't come off. I blew some dust out and it seems to work okay now but I'd rather do the proper cleaning

then you have access to the cd slot and drive motors etc...there is four phillips screws the hold this unit in plce. remove them...then with a flashlight locate where the laser sits..use a q-tip with a little windex on it and clean the laser...i had a noticable amount of filth on mine..then with a dry q-tip polish it up and reinstall...it has worked all day today with no isues at all and even plays the cd's faster hopefully this works for others if they try it
Warning thread resurrection:

Just did this to my RB1 and it worked like a charm. Nav. now works better, loads faster than it ever has. FYI: you’re going to need a good set of jewelers screwdrivers.

I'm curious as to why people are still using the RB1? My alpine has very good sound quality and in my experience factory radios always suck for sound quality.

I'm pretty sure the RB1 is an Alpine.

So switching from my aftermarket alpine to the RB1 would it be a downgrade?
