I had the same problem with my sony CDX-GT540UI and solved it! I just kept clicking the "source/off" button when the display was showing the demo and suddenly it started switching to USB/CD/AUX etc. This means that the contacts inside the micro-switch were stuck in the down position, continuously making contact, and blocking the signals from the other buttons. Have to replace the micro-switch now.

Hi I am Vortash your radio I take it has a removeable security face , is it the type that folds down on a slide that allows you to put the cd in behind or do you place the cd through a slot in the faciure .. if it is the afformentioned then check the connecting ribbon is not damaged and cracked stopping the opperations .. if it is the latter check that the pins on the rear of the facia are clean and undamaged .. failing that there is nothing that you can do other than try a new facia or return it to the manufactures .. If you are In the Uk and your unit is under six years old then you have rights under the consumer act to get it repaired or replaced by the shop you purchased it from even if the guarantee has expired . All goods in the uk are coverd by this act so dont let the shop tell you any diffrent .. if they dont play ball report them to trading standards and they will take up your case in law . check out www.bbc.co.uk/oneshow and it is explained on there . If in the USA check out your consumer rights with the department of consumer trading .. hope this helps regards Vortash

Make sure that you have the antenna plugged in and if you have a power antenna make sure that you hook up the solid blue antenna wire behind on the radio harness to the power antenna wire from the car plug.

SOURCE: How do ya work this thing?

I had the same problem. I would just take the face plate off and put it back on, shift it around a little and after a couple DAYS of doing this it would start working again. It did this to me about once a month. Also to eject, slide the eject bar down so its covering the screen, then slide it down til it clicks, wait until the CD comes out before you slide the bar back up.
Once your player has started doing this volume this I suggest getting a new one altogether because it will drive you crazy.

Pioneer Laser jukebox error FP


This FP in the selections remaining screen means that the machine is on FREE PLAY and needs no money to be inserted.

The buttons do have a beep as they are being pressed. They should be registering on the display as you enter them.

Unless there are no CD's installed.
The pioneer laser juke will initialize (pull each and every CD one at a time) all the CD's when the power is turned on and the service switch is place back in the "run" position (usually operated by closing the lid) . All CD and track information is stored into the computers memory. The computer will NOT ALLOW you to select song that do not exists in its memory. It will also disallow a stored CD if it skips too often.

1) Make sure that the CD's are present and are actually being initialized.
2) If it fails to initialize the CD's when powered on, check to see if the service switch is broken or disables in some way. Operators did this to keep it from reading every CD, every time it was powered on. It also made it possible to play the the machine immediately after power on.
3) Bad players, These players have a habit of, well the laser lens fall s out.and they wont work. You often find them ratteling around in the bottom of the player
4) problems with connecting cables.

Hope this was helpful.

It sounds like you are using an amplifier. Make sure you are using the blue/white wire to turn the amplifier on. The blue/white wire is amplifier remote turn on and the blue wire is power antenna remote turn on. The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, turning the amplifier off.

Hi Skipping problem with a NAD C545BEE, plays OK for 1 minute, then skips randomly wthin the track, then will skip to different tracks on the CD, like fast forwarding. No problems with the disc themselves


hi
There is a diode in the power supply which gives dc supply to the laser focusing coil driver ic . if the diode get faulty this problem can occur. Just replace all the rectifier diodes in the power supply stage. Its better than searching for the exact one. then check the cd player is it skips the tracks. if then also its skips the tracks then you have to change the laser pickup unit.
ok

are you using an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amplifier on.

do you mean the blue light on the power button? it sounds like your radio's switched power input (usually red) is hooked up to a 12 volt constant source.
