Sony XK-R100 car audio preamp troubles

My Sony preamp started acting funny awhile ago, would turn off by itself after I would turn it on. It didn't matter if I was listening to a cd or the radio, the result would be the same. It was installed in a BMW325 with external amp and eq....have replaced with old Blaupunkd which works just fine so I've eliminated my wiring job as a possible culprit. Have searched google and there seems to be a site called Euras (?) that will give out info but you need to be an organization...they list a possible problem with the faceplate and bad onoff button...can you enlighten me? Don't want to trash player cause I've had it since new/great shape, would like to fix if possible.

Ok, so you ruled out the wiring....that would have been my first suggestion. Even now, it wouldn't hurt to wire it directly to your battery (red and yellow wire on +POS and black on -NEG). You can also try putting some tape on the face plate to make sure it's not loose, let it run for awhile with a little tape on it and the car off and sitting still and see if it still shuts off.

If you have already tried these things and are still having problems, I believe the culprit could be a dirty or blocked intake fan. Make sure there is not a mess of wires blocking the fan, causing it to overheat. I hope this is a help to you.

IQ 3600 Data card and frozen screen

I had the same problem awhile ago, the SD card was too large for the unit. I had lots of trouble and did everything under the sun. Then one day, just for the heck of it, I pulled the SD card out and whatdoyaknow?! It started up! I installed the same card again, and just like that it quite again. Sooooo I replaced the SD card with a smaller card, and have not had any trouble since, after I got my original problem fixed. Try this solution and see how it acts for you. Jeff.

Trouble with car stereo

Hoang00, to change the time on JVC's i believe you hold down "source" for a while and a menu pops up.
SSwaim, sounds like a grounding problem. Check the connections behind the dash, possibly a couple came loose. I would say possibly a bad car battery but the headlights thing points to a grounding issue to me.
