Maybe, there is a problem from the detector of you radio function to the amplifier. Try to check on it first or try resoldering from the detector section

There should be a reset button on either the face of the player or under the faceplate if its removable (tiny black button). Otherwise to remove the cd disconnect the unit and then plug it in or remove the memory fuse or battery lead for 5 seconds.

SOURCE: need wire diagram for sony x-plod to 04 colorado

hi my names josh firs things first you need a wiring harness for your vehicle if you dont have one you are faced with trying to do hardwire and i dont recommentd it on your vehicle. If you do how ever have a wiring harness you can proceed by doing all your wiring. The colors from the wiring harness should all match up your power wires you have two your ground you have one ground and the rest is your audio your sound. for your power you have a red wire and yellow wire your red wire is your acc or ignion switch witch allow the unit to come on when you turn the the ignition. your yellow is used for a constant 12volts to go to and it holds all your memory to the unit itself and then your ground no second guess its black and grounds the unit to complete the circuit the rest is pretty basic you have a set of wires coming out of the unit about four sets and these are your audio they are white and white/w gray then gray/w gray and white strip you have green/ and green/with a black or purple strip and the purple and purple/white or green strip

I have a sony mp3 xplod car radio, buttons wont work on it to operate probaly, any suggentions as to what is wrong?

I had the same problem with my sony CDX-GT540UI and solved it! I just kept clicking the "source/off" button when the display was showing the demo and suddenly it started switching to USB/CD/AUX etc. This means that the contacts inside the micro-switch were stuck in the down position, continuously making contact, and blocking the signals from the other buttons. Have to replace the micro-switch now.

I turned the volume up the other day and it got stuck, it kept getting louder and louder. I turned it off, but now I can only use the CD player. I can't change the volume on the CD player. I also can't use...

You need to free the stuck switch. As long as it is jammed, it is going to send a signal to the microprocessor. The microprocessor can only handle one command at a time, so while the volume up switch is sending a signal to it, it will do nothing else.

Sony CDX-GT310. Installed by Circuit City about 15 months ago. CD works fine. No sound from radio (both AM & FM). I've manually tuned through the range of stations with no reception. Checked...

Called a shop in VA and their opinion was that the tuner section of the unit failed. Cost of the part, $80. Then, labor and shipping. I can buy the new model (GT320) for about $95. I opted for buying a new unit.

Sony CDX CA720X in my boat

Mac, I had the same problem, it was the hard wired remote at the Stern. When I unplugged it from the radio, everything came back to life and the radio and CD player are working fine. I'll have to replace the other remote at some point.

Hope this works for you...

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Stereo problem

If you still have audio but unable to turn the volume, there are 02 possible problem:
- the volume control is defected will not respond ( electronic volume control; need logic low/high to activate the audio )
- the front control PCB is broken ( can be fixed if there is a small cracked )
If no audio at all then most likely audio output IC defected
