Question about Sony CDX-3100 CD Changer
Hi, I wonder if you can help - I've just taken my Sony CDX-3100 head unit out of my old car and fitted it into a new one. The unit worked fine in my other car, no problems, but since I refitted it, it no longer stores any of my EQ settings or stored radio stations. I set everything up, but next time I switch the ignition back on, the CD gets ejected and all the settings and memories are reset to default.
I followed the instructions in the manual - when I installed it, I pressed the small reset button but this doesn't seem to have done any good. I have unplugged the unit, re-plugged it, then pressed reset but with no joy.
Any help gratefully received

i resolved this myself in the end.
I unplugged the audio & power cables whilst the stereo and engine was running.
Then plugged back in.
I turned the engine off and stereo off as well.
I then unplugged audio and power again from the back of the CDX, left it unplugged for 10 minutes whilst the engine was still off.
I then plugged the leads back in and turned the engine on. the stereo recognised the CDX, but stayed on displaying "CD Checking". I switched to radio for 20 seconds, turned back to CDX and it selected CD 1 and has been good ever since.
I'm rather pleased with myself!

OK. Here's the deal. There are two "power" input lines. A RED and a YELLOW. RED should be connected to your vehicles' ignition or key switch. YELLOW should be connected to a "constant" power supply directly from the battery.
If you have a test light, you should be able to find both at the fuse box. Just clip the alligator clip to the frame somewhere or to the edge of the cigarette lighter and probe the fuse box turning the switch off and on respectively. (test lights are very inexpensive, about 4 or 5 bucks at the auto parts store).
Hope this helps.

Don't know if you have an external antenna or one mounted in windshield but you should be able to find the coaxial heading towards the back of the radio. Make sure that it is plugged into the radio.
