Sony CDX-SW200 AM/FM/CD unit

I have this audio unit on our boat - but do not have an owners manual. It only has 'seek' buttons to tune in to the fm radio stations. I need to tune it to a special channel 100.1 - but because there is not braodcasting on that channel; the seek does not find tghat channel. Is there a way to manually set the FM radio to a specific channel setting on this unit? Skipper Den

I'm not completely certain about yours, but on most Sony decks you can get to a manual tuning mode by pressing and holding the seek buttons. In other words, if you press and release the tuning button, it will automatically jump to the next channel. If you press and hold the button for a second, it should beep and possibly start flashing an "M" on the screen. After that, it should stop scanning when you release the button, without jumping to the next station.

Cd player gives me a error code 4

The player doesn't like the brand of CDR your playing. Try using just a CD burner instead of a combo CD/DVD burner2_bing.gif. Also use Verbatim Pastel brand, because the player recognizes these discs easier. Also, it wouldn't hurt for you to run a commercial disc laser cleaner through this thing to clean the optical lens. Burn music using Nero software because its easy and the best.

Sony compact disc player initializing

Have you tried pressing hte RESET switch?? It's behind the removeable front of the stereo, use a biro or something and hold it in for a bit.

Failing that, check that there isn't a CD already in it, could be a dodgy CD?
