    Hello ARCLIGHT1217 - yes I have the manual and have seen the remotes (listed for $39.95) but I find it odd that you cannot get to the stereo menu without using a remote. I really can't believe they would design software this way to insure remote sales to potential future customers. The newer CDX-GT series decks have access manually by pressing and holding in the volume button (which doesn't work on my unit) and I was hoping there was a sequence of button pushes etc to get to the menu without being held hostage over buying a remote control.

    Hello ARCLIGHT1217
    I thought I would give you an update on my Sony experience so far. I had the pleasure of talking with service personal in California today (not bad for Sony Canada requests) and he was doing a lot of reading manuals and service bullitins. It seems that the only way to get to the menu is through a remote control. Some early Explod model were this way and I guess the customers voiced their opinions negatively about this being held hostage over a remote control. I was always under the impression a remote was a handy marketing tool to entice potential customers into buying your product. I guess I was wrong as certain models need this neccessity to access the menu to set the sound filters, amp, clock, turn the first startup introduction off, etc etc etc. This unit needs a remote and I'm stuck buying one. I once had a job searching for software bugs in a computer program written for a device used to test train braking systems. I'll be playing with buttoms for a while trying to find a flaw in the programming...lol.

    YES, I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, BECAUSE I HAVE SIRRIUS SAT. RADIO IN THE HOUSE AND CAR AND IT DOES THE SAME. I HAVE TO HOLD A BUTTON FOR X SECONDS TO OPEN THE MENU. I FIND IT ODD THAT THE MANUAL DIDN'T LIST AN OPTIONAL WAY TO ACCESS THE MENU,ETC. THIS DOES SEEM STRANGE. HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO REACH A TECH SERVICE REP AT THE WEBSITE IF AVAILABLE? THAT WOULD SEEM TO BE THE BEST BET, UNLESS SOMEONE ELSE ON THE SITE HAS HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. HAVE YOU TRIED TO ACCESS THE MENU WITH THE UNIT IN THE OFF MODE? DON'T KNOW ON THIS ONE, BUT HAD ONE THAT YOU HAD TO DO THIS WITH IT. IT WOULD BE ROTTEN IF THEY FORCE PEOPLE TO BUY THE REMOTE JUST TO PROGRAM THE RADIO, BUT THAT IS POSSIBLE. LET ME KNOW HOW IT COMES ALONG! STILL INTERESTED!

Hold the volume button in for a few seconds, this will activate the set up screen where the clock, scrolling info, auto-dim controls, etc are controlled from. When done, hold the volume in a few seconds again to return to normal.

Press and hold the [DiSPLay] button (in the bottom row of black buttons -number presets etc.- most to the right side) for a while, then the unit should enter "Clock Set" mode.

(likely that you've found a solution by now; but i might aswell add one for others having the same problem).
