Take the cd player out and run the 12+V to + on 12+V battery.
Run the Ground/Black wire to negative on battery. See if the cd player will turn on. If it does, check your ground in the dash. This is just a good trouble-shooting method to make sure the cd player system board is not fried.

there should be a 'source' or 'mode' button that should switch between CD and AM/FM modes. This button should also swith over to the AUX input.

red - switched power (hot when key is on)
yellow - constant power (hot at all times - depending on the vehicle, i've used a direct battery connection, but isn't recommended)
black - ground
blue - power antenna or amplifier 'REM' wire

the other's, i'm working off of old memory....
purple - rear right
green - rear left
white - front right
gray - front left

wires with black stripes are ground, and without are hot

- if you're working on an older car, it sounds like your red and yellow are connected to the same power source. if this is the case, the time will always be resetting.
- if it's a newer vehicle, AND the time is not resetting, the red wire is connected to the wrong source. if the time and stations stay programmed after it shuts off, the yellow wire is correct.

I had the same problem before with the same unit, and I found that the problem was only the recording format, you have to record your MDs in SP mode, this is because, the mdx-c8200 is a non MDLP MD compatible unit. So, if you want to listen your MDs on your mdx-c8200 just don t record em in LP mode, just SP mode.
