Setting the radio on sony mhc 2800

I have a sony stereo mhc 2800 system which we have had for years. We do not have the manual and are trying to set the radio, but cannot work out how. My 10month old son keeps turning the system off at the wall so that each time we have to retune the radio. It is driving us nuts - please help...

Re: setting the radio on sony mhc 2800

Hi, It is easy when you know it. I used a manual from a different type off manual since Sony does not place the right manual on the web. Here it is: set the mode to tuning use the +button to let the tuner search for the right frequency when you got what you want: press the memorybutton (left on the tuner part) with the +button (by pressing as many times as required)you choose your programnumber then press the memory button again. That should do it (it workes by my audioset). Dont forget to swich the mode to preset, or it will be all to easy for your son to chance it. Well, good luck Frank

Lost radio codes

Not familar with your car but I had same problem many years ago with a Vauxhall Astra and did same as you, disconnected battery and re-connected, radio didn't work - but my display kept flashing for security code to be re-input, which I didn't have.
Yours could be the same if radio not worked since disconnection - solution: if you dont have code & not in any documentation you got with car, then the radio will need to be re-coded by a dealer (expensive) or enquire with local car spares shops - they normally know a cheaper source. Mine cost about £18 (5 years ago) to get re-coded & I had to remove & reinstall myself.
