Unable to set clock on car radio

We have just purchased a car fitted with a "SONY CD" radio and single CD capacity (no further model details shown on either radio or the instruction book)

According to the instruction book supplied the radio clock display can be changed by scrolling through the menu and switching off the RDS function - but that option does not appear on the menu.

How do we switch off RDS so the clock can be reset manually?

Many thanks.

    I've managed to fix the problem (by luck!) and explained how in an e-mail I sent a few minutes ago. Did you get that e-mail?



    I ask because when I pressed the rating button above the website refreshed and there was no indication my response had been sent.



    Again, my thanks for your prompt response.

On the Radio there should alpha neumeric print on the front of the head unit on one of the corners. It should be something like CDX-RA700 or something to that extent. If you could get me that informaiton I can help you a little more in detail and what it means as RDS

I have a Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI GHIA with a SONY 6 CD + Radio, I have had a new alternator fitted today, so now it is asking for code, I have put the code in that is in the Audio Guide and still nothing....


Hi,

When you enter the code on a Ford radio you need to press button number 5 to get the radio to save the code.

If this does not resolve the issue get back to me with some more detail and I will be glad to advise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

For my Sony player. I have to press and hold the volume knob for about 5 seconds, and then a new set of options shows up, including the Bass Boost option, and the Clock option. If you do not hold it for that long, you get the Balance, Treble, Fade, etc.
