Question about Pioneer CDX-FM653 6-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Help - can't use it!

My friend just bought a car that had the CDX-FM563 6-disc CD changer already installed. Unfortunately, it did not come with instructions on how to use it. I cannot seem to find a manual for this system anywhere online. Can someone please just give me some basic pointers like: 1. Does the CD need to face a certain way? 2. Does the radio station need to be tuned to a certain station? Man, I sound like a complete idiot here. I apologize, but really...I have pressed every button I can think of, and nothing works! Any help would be wonderful. Thanks so much. Judy

Re: Help - can't use it!

Usually there is a button combo you press on the stereo in the car to tell it to enter CD changer mode, his combo is dependent on the manufacturer of Stereo in your car, on mine you press the CD button while turning on, once in CD changer mode you should be able to select CD and track. Yes the CDs have to be a particular way up, although there is only a choice of 2 different ways so trial and error should suffice :)

You can order them on-line from Sony Parts and Accessories - and they are reasonably priced - around $35. I just ordered one last week and received it already!

No power

You have 12 volts constant on the yellow and 12 volts Switched on the red (when the car is in Ignition/Accessory)? If so, then, yup.... service shop.
