Hello, I'm new here. I'm from Europe, saying just in case
The car I have is S-Class W221 2006.
I have a problem with my radio COMAND NTG3. I was looking for the solution everywhere but none answerd me and I didn't find out how to solve this.
When I drive and listen my music from SD card with PCMCIA adapter and also when I listen to radio stations, from time to time the radio just stop playing. Randomly just stop for like 3 seconds and play again. It looks like I pause the radio, everything stops and I can't do nothing during this 3 seconds. Sometimes when I start the car, wait for the music it doesn't do anything. It looks like the radio tries to run/load music. I see on COMAND unit the name of a folder with music and those lines for each other mp3 file but it doesn't start. I have to turn off the car and wait a little bit then start it again and everything works fine.
I thought and someone told me that this could be the amplifier in the back of a car (I have the Harman/Kardon) so I changed it for another one that works 100% fine because I took it from my friends car. It doesn't help still the same problem.
Now I'm thinking about 2 options:
- the radio unit where are CD/DVD changer and place for PCMCIA card is fault (but how to repair it?),
- or what is more likely for me I have to do the Telematic update of COMAND at my dealership. I don't have also the Bird's Eye View.
Tell me am I right or what else I have to do, because it is so anoying.
