Sony CDX-3100 - Unit keeps resetting

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

Cheers
Dan Trussler

SOURCE: CDX changer has power but doesn't want to eject after flat battery

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!

SOURCE: Sony CDX-M600R car radio CD: Radio does not work,

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.

SOURCE: I need operator's manual / instructions for Sony CDX-GT11W

The operating instructions and installation guide for the CDW-GT11W are available from the manufacturer's support site: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=CDXGT11W&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . Click on the Manuals, Specs & Warranty tab. I needed to refresh the next page to download the manual (click on the circle with the arrow going clockwise). The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//CDXGT11W.pdf .

I hope this helps.

When removing display from dash make sure you remove ALL proprietary cabling, otherwise your unit is worthless...since the car is junk, do WHATEVER is necessary to remove the cabling....don't beat yourself up if you cant do it as Cd changers are pretty cheap nowadays.

Sound only coming from one side


you should have 3 leads going into you multi changer, two rca's and one bus lead. power up the unit and remove the first rca cable if the music goes off unplug the second rca and plug the first rca where the second was plugged in, if the music comes back on then the multiloader is working fine and you need to check the radio controller and its connections
