Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I just bought a boat which had an older radio installed and it worked just fine - I just wanted to upgrade. I bought a Sony CDX-R30M Marine radio/CD Player. I have hooked it up and am getting power, but the unit only flashes options on the display. ie. SONY, then CD PLAYER, then MP3 PLAYER, ect. I am unable to select one, nor am I am able to do anything... not of the buttons do anything. I believe I have it hooked up correctly and have tried other wiring connections, but am getting nowhere. Connections from the CD Player unit: 2 + wires connected to + wire on the boat - wire connected to - wire on the boat 4 speaker wires connected to 4 speaker wires to the boat. I am at a loss - can anyone help me????????? Bryan Lucas

Detach front panel of CD Player, you will see RESET button there, press it with some thing like ball point pen, paper clip pin and reset the unit. Attach front panel.
Press SOURCE button (near panel release button at lower-left) on front panel to turn on unit, insert CD and enjoy.

I have a Sony cdx-c5005 in my Bryany boat that doesn't get any FM reception. CDs work perfectly fine.

Make sure that antenna is plugged in CXD-C5005 to provide radio signal to tuner, without antenna it wont give you any station sound.
