It may be that the remote lead on the amp has been connected to the auto antenna lead on the radio instead of the amp remote lead and because the auto antenna goes down when the cd is inserted it is turning off you amplifier, check the connections behind the radio or if there is a light on the amp check if the light goes out when you insert a cd

How can I connect ipod on SONY cdx-mp70. Is there a cable to do that, maybe in the back, in AUX?! Thanks

i use to have the same radio, the only way is to use the AUX with a RCA to 3.5min cable. i dont think sony has a ipod interface for that radio because of its age. Wish i still had it!

How do i connect my ipod to a CDX-M610 problem

hey there! if im not mistaken the CDX M610 is a cd and radio player.. Buy an FM transmitter with a 12volt car battery socket. Connect the ipod to the fm transmitter and set your CDX to radio and set it the frequency being transmitted by the FM transmitter.. play your favorite song in your ipod. you should be hearing things.

My Sony CDX-MP70 unit plays CDs and works on aux off my iPod but when I try to listen to am or fm it's nothing but static if I scan for a station it will just search forever, I took it apart but it all...

Check for a loose antenna connection, at the unit and where your antenna is attached to your car. Also, check fuses, some cars have 'powered amplified' antennas.
If those dont work, try resetting the unit. On most units there is a small pinhole behind the faceplate(not on the faceplate). Could also be the internal tuner has gone out...

Hope this helps

Where is the aux input on the sony cdx-mp70?


check the front of the player. If you don't find any Aux input then it means your player does not have Aux input.

Take care.

Bass hits when i play the radio but not when i play a cd

Dont assume because you have set the bass and treble options for your radio that they will work for your cd, press the source button until you come to cd and then set your bass and treble again, hope this works

Poor sound

Sit low Bass @+3 / Mid@ 0 / Hi+10
Add SubWoofer with separate Amp and use low pass filter @78hz cuttoff.
It's a cheap unit -don't expect High Fidelity & a warm EQ<

Subwoofer in my car works only on tuner

I had the same problem. most radios have a power antenna wire and an amp turn on wire it sounds like your amps are being turned on by the power ant wire that loses power when you put a cd in try swapping the blue with blue and white wire this should solve it

No sound on radio or cd

if the fault was intermittent it may suggest that there are some dry joints on the internal amplifier which you will need to resolder or there may be a speaker wire shorting to ground, remove the radio and look if there are any signs of damage to the speaker wires

It depends which vehicle it has been installed, some radios have to be screwed behind the dash but most you will just need sony removal keys, remove the trim and slide the keys (one each side) down the radio and then slide it forward if you're lucky it will come out without much force. Have fun!
