Question about Sony XR-M510 Cassette Player

Display Not Working

Hi, My car got broken in to and my Sony XR-M510 was removed but bafflingly left on the seat. Anyways, I reconnected all the cables and the cd auto changer works but when I press reset there is a beep but Code In does not appear - the display remains blank. I have checked all the cables and they look ok. One thing is that the little s**ts have nicked the remote control as I stupidly left it in the glovebox. I can get a replacement for this but obviously I need to know that the stereo is working first. Anybody any ideas? The stereo is out of warranty so I can't send it off to be looked at - any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Mike

    That is correct.

    The guys who tried to rub you are not pro.
    therefore they could damage some of the cables

    Best regards,

Hi, I have changed the car battery and now is asking me for security code, that I don`t have. Please help me to rezolve this problem. wiht this srial No 3508273 für Sony XR-M510 Cassette Player Thanks

Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

So you can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorised dealership.Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car..
