I have a 2012 raptor toy hauler with a sony multi disc player [MEX-DV2200] and the radio has quit working. It turns on but won't receive any stations. Everything else works fine. Any ideas?


Have you been able to check your connections from the unit to the antenna? If it was working before and then just quit I would start there first, a loose connection or frayed coaxial cable could be your problem, also if the antenna has moved it could be improperly grounded now and unable to receive also, you'll need to check the mounting of the antenna to make sure that it has come lose or built up corrsion. Roughly 80-90% of all radio problems/solutions are antenna/cable/connections based and rarely the radio itself.

Just bought a new car stereo (Sony XPlod CDXGT240)...Radio works fine....But the CD player will not play any sound...It reads the CD but there's no sound...


You have wired the amplifier turn-on wire to the power antenna wire by mistake.
The amplifier is turning off because it is losing the 12V signal in the power antenna wire when you go off the TUNER to CD.

Swap the blue wires, and you'll be set.

When trying to play cds keep getting ''E'' error message. this is in my car cd player. any suggestions


If the message is "error" The CD Lens is bad. Try disconnecting the negative lead from the car battery for about 10 min. But! Make sure your stereo does not have an anti-theft system, because if you disconnect the battery the stereo needs to put a code or will not work again. If after this your stereo still not working you have to take it to any electronics repair shop (the CD lens is bad).

Aux input for sony car stereo (cdx c 5000r)


For Sony Stereos, you will need to get what is called a Bus Converter. The RCA ports you are trying to use are for a CD changer or alternate device like satellite or HD radio, and those have to have some sort of frequency signal to even be selected. You can find a Bus Converter that will allow you to use this as an Auxiliary input. The device you are looking for is called a Sony XA 300, and it will allow you Two extra Aux Inputs, I believe.

Sony XR-C350 Car Stereo - can't use cassette adapter for ipod!


For Sony radios you need an aux Bus adapter called the Sony XA 300. It works with the Bus IN RCA, and there whould also be another plug spot for the Bus power and signal interrupter. That is how the Sony knows to access that port.
