Hi, I saw you had helped a few people before with this changer. Mine stopped working and so I got another off ebay. Well this one loads up ok and ejects but no green lights come on on the numbers. Then, when I press the SRc button, the head unit just says No Tape. I do not have the code for the head unit and I do not have the code for the CD Changer. Please advise. I was going to take the power off the head Unit but then if it asks me for a code I end up with no radio as well.

If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.
I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.
If the unit you replaced it with is exactly the same model as your old one and its the same head unit, then i would check the lead, try wiggling it and seef it recognises it, if not then someones sold you a dodgy cd changer from ebay
Hi, I know this is an old post, but I'll reply, so that other readers may get the benefit of my answer.
2004 was the year that Peugeot/Citroen changed from VAN bus to CAN bus wiring on their stereo's. If your car is before or early 2004 you will need the IDC-A09 blaupunkt in dash changer, which should just plug in and work straight away.
However, If your car is later 2004 onwards you will need the IDC-A04 Blaupunkt changer which will plug in and power up, but will not work properly untill you go to a peugeot dealer and they hook up some diagnostic software to tell the car a changer has been added. Both the IDC-A04 and A09 changers look identical.
I would say that you got the wrong changer, as the IDC-A09 changers in pre/early 2004 should just plug in and work.
Remember: Pre 2004 cars need IDC-A09 (plug and play) and Post 2004 cars need IDC-A04 changer (get pug dealer to reprogram cars computer)...its a costly mistake if you bought the wrong one!
