Your navigation disc may be damaged. Remove it from the tray in the trunk and check for scratches. It may have to be replaced.

ok, checked for scratches but don't see any. should the cd remain in or should it be taken out or it should remain in the cd drive at all times?

You should take it to a dealership and see if a brand new disc works in the drive. If it works, your CD was somehow damaged. If the new CD doesn't work, your drive is broken.

I have an Acura TL 2004 and I'm getting the same error message. Today I took the car to the dealer and they told me it's the DVD drive unit that needs to be replaced and they want to charge a lot of money to fix it. Did you fix your issue if you did can you please provide any info. Thanks.

Most likely it's the unit, not the disk

Tengo un acura tl 04 quiero saver como cambiar el mapa para que me salga el de la republica dominicana en el gps

you all need to get a new disk bro, they make new ones like every year cause everything gets updated!!!

We are having the same problem so bought a new $100 nav disc from Acura site and inserted it into the player. It takes the disc and can hear it spinning for a minute and then it just shuts off and the same 'Please check your disc' message reappears. Must be the player itself. :(

Fixed mine by getting a proper charge into the battery and turning the key off then on to reset the please check disc message. For me the battery was too low for the software disc drive to function.
