Radio stations fuzzy and not coming in anymore - Sony CDX-GT310

I've had the Sony CDX-GT310 cd player for almost 2 years, and all of the sudden this week, it stopped playing radio stations clearly. At first the radio stations would sound like static and them they would come in ok after a few minutes. Now the stations are either static or completely silent. Any thoughts or suggestions?

    I have a 2005 Honda Civic. There are no exposed wires that could be caught by a foot. I had my dad take a look at the wiring, but the panels and glove box prevented him from seeing anything. The stereo was installed by Best Buy, so I'm planning to go back to them and have them take a look since they have the knowledge and the proper tools.

    With regard to the next comment - there is no aerial antenna on the car.

    I took it in to Best Buy and the guy reconnected the antenna wire. That didn't help so he said it must be a problem inside the receiver. I went to a stereo repair shop and they said it would cost at least $80 to fix it. I decided it wasn't worth it, and I got a new receiver - this time with the 4 year "Protection Plan" from Best Buy.

    Have you checked to make sure your antenna is connected tightly. Vibration from driving, someones foot catching a wire, ect could cause it to pull out.

I have the same problem, it was a factory fit and the garage checked it and all the connections were ok, it appears to be a fault with the receiver.the radio is just 3 years old.

    My CDX GT310 did the exact same thing. Stations started going out, becoming fuzzy with a lot of noise, and now it won't play radio at all. Seems to be a common problem. Mine won't play the sub woofer either.

Could be a bad connection in between radio and antenna . Check that first . If that doesn't work try a film strip antenna

Sony CDX-GT310 CD


Hi,

The yellow wire must be directly connected to an always ON B+12 such as the + terminal of the battery. This wire is responsible for providing power to the memory.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
