Question about Sanyo FXCD-500 RB CD/Cassette Receiver with CD Changer Control (Factory Refurbished)

Removal of installed FXCD-500 from car?

I have installed a FXCD-500 in-dash radio CD/cassette player in my car. I wish to retire the car to a junkyard without the FXCD-500 being in it. However I can't figure out how to remove it without fear of damaging it. I have removed the faceplate and the trim ring. The radio came with 2 - key-like tools (with up-arrows). I played around with those keys on both sides of the radio simultaneously. Where do the keys go in order to effect the removal of the FXCD-500?

Hi there,

the keys go either side of the CD plater, you should see little slots, either in the trim ring or behind it, just slide them down the side.

you then have to push the keys outwards i.e 1 towards the driving wheel and the other towards the glove box.

at the same time pull stright out!

Please rate

Hope this helps

Perhaps the disk tray is not in correct position and leave some micro-switch unpressed.

[This is as I noted in your first post with this request.]

These security codes are protected legally, as they serve anti-theft purposes. You will need to contact the manufacturer, a dealer, or an authorized repair/service center to request assistance with obtaining the necessary code. They will also likely ask for some proof of purchase to ensure the legitimacy of the transaction.

In both of these cases, the in-dash CD changer will probably need to be repaired or replaced due to internal mechanical damage.

Direct replacements can be purchased from the dealer - you could also replace with an aftermarket radio or a used radio from a junkyard, eBay, etc.(a reputable junkyard or eBay seller will give you a refund/replacement if the unit is DOA - look for them to advertise this fact).

If you want to have your radio repaired, there are repair shops who specialize in factory stereo equipment, such as http://www.sound-repair.com/, http://www.carradiorepairs.com/, and http://www.carstereohelp.com/, among others. I cannot vouch for any of those sites as I haven't personally dealt with them, but they look knowledgeable and professional in my opinion, and their advertised prices are much lower than a replacement from a dealer would be.

As far as radio removal - Pattyp54, if you give me year/make/model of your car I can give you instructions.

Guest with the 2004 Visteon changer - you'll need Ford radio removal tools (available at Wal-Mart and auto parts stores in the car stereo section, approximately $5). They are u-shaped with slight tapers on the ends. Insert these into the holes on the ends of the radio face (you'll want them angled as much as possible with the pin ends going outward towards the dash). Once they are inserted about 1/2-3/4" or so, pull the u-ends outward and pull the radio toward you - it may take some jiggling but should release.

Adio player sanyo fxcd-500


All these models have an overheat problem which after about an hour of use will not eject the cd until you let it cool down. I bought 2 of these and would not reccommend the purchase of this model. The removable head gets very hot even with volume down. Sometimes taking the cover on and off a few times will reset the error and let the cd eject.
