Sony XR-C2600 car stereo stuck in demo mode

Car stereo unit XR-C2600 is stuck in what appears to be 'demo-mode' with screen alternating the text:"sony...receiever..cassette" constantly as well as bass levels also flashing.

But can't get unit to turn on despite pressing as well as holding numerous buttons on the faceplate.

Have also tried reseting the unit behind the detachable faceplate as per instructions in the manual for when changing car battery, all this does is reset the clock to "1:00", still can't access anything arrrrrghhhhhh.

    Maybe sometime this is useful, but not in my case. I've cleaned the contacts very well but
    my Sony CDX 2000 doesn't work. It's in "demo mode".
    I think I'buy another radio (not Sony)

Just bought a car with this stereo. Was working fine and then I accidentally was messing around trying to figure things out and put it in demo mode. Now it's stuck!! Can someone please help?!?!


With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

I am not getting a bluetooth signal from my car stereo. Can this be fixed?


Does specification of your cr stereo say it has bluetooth? If it says, does it has a switch-on function? Look at manual, in setting! Once bluetooth is on, it should start sync with other device, headphone ir speaker, presume

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo


Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.

What do you think the problem is as to why my ipod want load up,i keep getting the message ipod communication aborted.


bad receiver in the radio, or, the transmitter on the ipod is bad. try it on another bluetooth source to see if it maintains connection, if not, the ipod could be damaged or bad. If it works with another bluetooth source unit, then the radio has a bluetooth receiver issue.

JVC KD-R330 Won't turn off Demo mode - tried instructions. Every time I follow the instructions (Turn on, Hold Menu, push "vol" button, change to Demo off...etc) It doesn't work. In fact, as soon as I...


Hi,

Do you have a Bluetooth adapter plugged into the KD-R330?

A compatible Bluetooth adapter (like the KS-BTA100) usually plugs into the rear auxiliary port of the receiver. It then needs to be "paired" with your Bluetooth device, for example, a Bluetooth phone headset.

What you're describing sounds like what can when no Bluetooth device has been "paired" yet.

If you don't HAVE a Bluetooth adapter connected to your KD-R330....is it possible you accidentally plugged something into its rear auxiliary jack? Or the front auxiliary? In other words, is it possible your KD-R330 receiver is mistaking some other device for a Bluetooth adapter?

Don't know if that helps at all...if there's no adapter issue, and nothing connected to the AUX jacks, probably your next step should be a call to JVC, or whatever number you were given for tech support.

On the bright side, since the receiver turns on, and responds to some commands, you probably didn't mess up anything major in the wiring. And, there's also the possibility the receiver is defective....certainly if this continues, and JVC can't help you, trying a replacement might be worth a try.

BTW, feel free to post a reply...I'm going to look further to see if there's any other documented issue besides an adapter that might cause the problem you're having.
