1999 Jaguar XK8 radio problem

When I turned on my radio today the display screen showed "PHONE" and nothing worked except the volume control but there was no sound (I could see the numbers change). I could not change "PHONE" to the AM/FM radio, or the CD, or the Cassette. The display stayed on even when the car was off and the key removed. The only way I could get the display to turn off was to remove the fuse. Can you help?

    Thanks for the answer. My problem seems to be gone. I disconnected the CD and left it out overnight, didn't disconnect the battery (I've seen this tip in other posts). In the morning it worked fine and hasn't given any problems since. I do have a follow up question in case I ever have to do the "deprogramming" steps...since I have a convertible do I need to retrain the drop top also?

You should reboot the system, sometimes these cars hicup so to speak.
Disconnect the battery, both sides, then with it still disconnected turn the key to crank 3-4 times (with the battery disconnected, this just discharges all the ecu's and clears any held memorys)
Reconnect the battery (pos + first)
After that you need to relearn the windows, with the key on or the car running send the windows all the way up, then one at a time, hold the button to bring 1 down and continue to hold for 5 seconds once it is all the way down, do the same for the up position, repeat on the other side and you should be good to go.
