Re: can I plug an mp3 player into the unit ???

Hi, A wild guess, the 2 X RCA are lineout intended for external amplifier hence no AUX selection in your front panel buttons, but of course I might be off. I have similar problem with a Pioneer model and an MSI MP3 player. My solution was to install a stereo FM RF Modulator similar to Delphi SA10003 or an AudioVox Rf Modulator FMM100a. The MP3's output was fed to the modulator which turns it into an FM broadcast. The car stereo picks it up as an FM signal. Hope this gives you some idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Is my Panasonic cq-c7105u... Bluetooth ready, or how do I plug an auxiliary from my phone? (I recently bought a car with this stereo already in, and I'm tryin to play music from my phone.)

No Bluetooth built-in.
There is an optional part for this.
This unit has an AUX input from a pigtail connection on the rear of the unit. There are 2 RCA jacks, so you would need an adapter for your iPod/MP3 device.

The unit is also listed to be MP3/WMA compliant for discs:
"The CQ-C7105U can play MP3, WMA, and AAC files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660 Level 1/Level 2, Apple Extension to ISO 9660, Joliet, and Romeo. The player can support up to 511 files (files and folders), 255 files in one folder, 8 levels, and 255 folders"

Buy a rca to aux 3mm plug then you can connect to aux port.
RCA out is for the signal to the amp from the Head Unit. Mic is probably for your cell phone.
Am pretty surprise that an HU like that doesn't have USB Ipod support?

Hook an ipod to Pioneer DEH-16

The RCA jacks on the rear of the head unit are rear pre-amp outputs. (google it if you need an explination on what purpose they serve or see the installation guide) With that said, I am able to play my mp3 player through them but since they are 'rear' pre-amp outputs my mp3s only play on the rear speakers. see this post for more...

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume

first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x

It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!
