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

Trying hitting the reset button which should be either on the changer next to the cartridge eject or on the controller display. It will be a pin hole to press.

Cassette issues

Could the tape be a Mono recording? Have you tried to clean the head on the tape player? This could fix it if the head is dirty. Do you use the tape player very often? It could have a dust build-up. Hope this helps...

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