Question about Sony CMT-CP100 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Memory Loss I own a CMT-CP100 system which was working excellently until recently. The problem it developed is that once the mains power is disconnected, it looses all the pre-tuned station information. This was previously not so. I have resetted the system but that did not help. Your assistance is requested. Best Regards, Hugh.

Re: Memory Loss

Many devices utilize a small battery for system memory purposes, such as radio station presets. It draws a small continuous current for that purpose. If your system used to keep the presets when disconnected, then I would guess that?s the case. Search for a small battery compartment in the back of the system, take out the battery and take it with you to be replaced with one just like it. If that doesn't fix it, then i hope you're still under warranty, otherwise either you'll have to live with it or take it to a repair shop. Good luck!

IPod connection

Yes there is. You need to purchase a 1/8 inch jack (standard headphone input) to RCA (red and white) cord, they usually run approx. $20 - $25). Once you have that what you'll need to do is plug the RCA cord into the back of the stereo (corresponding colors, red into the red, white into the white) and set the function to Game (MD). You can do this by pressing the button on your remote or by pressing the function button on the main consul until you see MD on the monitor, press play on your ipod and you're good to go!
