Error codes for 1996 Buick Regal CD player

Does anyone have a set of error codes for GM's stock AM/FM
CD/Tape Player? Lately it's been giving a "D-20" error and
spitting out the CD, but this morning it's stopped taking in
CD's at all. I thought it might have needed cleaning, and I've
been looking for something proper to clean it with. (Not a KMART
blue light special.)

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

You might want to get a $25 Alldata.com subscription as that should have the error codes there.

That might be the way to go. I did get it accepting CD's
again. There seems to be a 30-60 second reset period
after the error code is displayed before it will allow the
CD to be reinserted. E20 was the correct code,
not D20.

Update:

The E20 Code indicates a "Focus Error" - CD player cannot focus on disc or an internal focus problem.

"Correction(s)- try cleaning disc or new disc, make sure disc is loaded correctly. Road could be too rough or humidity too high. If not corrected service at an AC-Delco service center"

E11 is a broken cassette tape error.(?)
E22 is a read error - a total failure to read the CD.

I'm still working on this list, and after I search around for the
applicable TSB's, I'm going to give my Buick dealer a call. In my
case the CD Player is probably dirty because it sounds fine when it does play. I'm still against shoving any cheapo cleaner into there, I can play tapes for the time being just fine.
