Heat can definitely be causing the problem. What's causing it? Hard to say. could be something nearby the stereo, or could be an overheating problem with the deck itself. You might want to go to the place where you bought the deck and talk it over with them.Originally Posted by Longens
The big question is: if you take the CD and play it on your home stereo, once the disk has cooled down, does it play ok or not? If not, then you definitely don't want to use that car deck until you get the problem figured out.....
Sorry I can't be more definitive.
