    I am having this same problem. My radio comes on and it appears as everything is working...but no sound. Help! I took it by the dealership and they didn't even check it bc they said they have seen this problem so many times there was no need to check, i would need a whole new radio for $800!!!!

    I removed the radio and then reinstalled it and it still did not work. For a while last year it would come on and work for a while with sudden pops followed by no sound. Now it lights up, takes CD, but has no sound whatsoever

I would go to best buy and get a new Sony, Pioneeer, Boshe, Kenwood, etc. for alot cheaper and the sound is excellent, get it installed for free and it is under warranty.

Sounds like a defective radio, look on ebay for a replacement. Easier to spend 20 bucks on someone else's cast off than get a new one or have that one fixed. After you have a replacement take it to a car stereo store and pay them a few bucks to put it in for you. If you know what you are doing just takes a few minutes.

Radio work with all the light but no sound, this is on 2003 Honda Accord.

because the light on the radio come on with dash lights doesn't mean the radio is working,check fuse for radio,if its good,check for power at radio connection,if you have power there see if you can see a change in stations when you turn knob,if you do make sure all connectors are plugged in radio,now go to an easy access speaker and plug in a known good speaker
