It's knackered mate, get an aftermarket replacement.

You could try fixing it but it'll probably just go wrong again in the near future. Similarly if you buy a replacement OEM unit it'll only be a matter of time before it goes ERR3 again.

I'm in exactly the same position as you, currently there's a big hole in my dash where my head unit used to be.

If you buy a new aftermarket unit it'll at least come with a full warranty.

Check the Audio/Video forum for details of how to connect up an aftermarket unit, fascia, cables etc.

I know what you mean, I was gutted when mine went, and as you say it's a pretty decent unit. But then I started looking around and saw I could get a new unit with lots of great features like Bluetooth, iPod control, etc, etc. I'm starting to be glad it went wrong now ! :D
