Question about Sony CDX-M610 CD Player

1 Answer

Radio malfunction Hey everyone, I just bought a used car with this system installed and it worked for a little while. However, now every radio station only emits static. The C.D. player works fine, but the radio refuses to give me my music. Is there a code that I have to get to reset it? I changed the car battery and my friends have told me to look for this mysterious code that allows for operation. Please, any advice will benefit my crisis, Help me if you can!

Re: Radio malfunction

There's definitely no code you can enter to fix this. Sony doesn't use anti-theft codes, and in brands that do, they don't work like you're describing. Either the unit is defective or the antenna has been disconnected.

Need Unlock Code for Kenwood MP235 car stereo

Look for a really small hole in the face plate. Put a tip of a pen into it. Press it in and then it should turn on. If this doesn't work, take it to a place that installs them, they'll help....Usually for free....

Trying to install after factory radio in 94 Honda accord ex and can't get any sound

I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.

Kenwood radio is locked

Go to your local dealership for your make of car. ask them if they do radio/cd player re-codes.. if not they should be able to put you in touch with someone who does as they use them all the time to re-code their trade in car sound systems... it usually costs about 15 quid or so...hope this helps..cheers.

Cd error-ao pioneer deh-77mp

I read a solution on here where you disconnect the wiring harness for 30-60 mins. to release the power stored in the capacitors. It seemed to work for everyone. I don't know if you tried this for this amount of time or not. Also, have you used a cd cleaner disc? You laser eye may be dirty. Also, since you said it was an old, battered car, maybe the vibration is causing the unit to malfunction. Also, if the unit is installed at the incorrect angle in the dash, it can cause a problem. Hope this helps...
