Sony CDX - RA700

I just bought a new truck and I've tried to put the cd player that was in my older truck in my new one, but it won't turn on. Nothing on the facepate lights up, I can insert and eject cds fine, but nothing else turns on or plays. It's like a $250 motorized cd case! Please help !

Re: Sony CDX - RA700

Sounds like you dont have power to clock or memory wire (yellow)..also if it is a faceoff ..make sure contacts on both radio and face are clean ..

Why doesn't any sound come from the unit when I put a c d in it? But the radio plays.

There could be several reasons (1) the eye in the cd player is burned out and can't read the CD or (2) your CD can't read it especially burned CD's.

Have a Sony CDX-RA700 and I need to know where the orange and white illumination wire should hook to.

That is the wire that hooks into your headlights there should be a wire in your car loom that gets 12v dc only when the headlights are on this is the the wire that you need

Hope this helps

sony can provide you with a new face plate but depending on what type and what country your in there are laws that dont allow this as some times the units are stolen from cars there fore you might need to prove some how you own the unit ounce done you should be right

I need a wiring diagram for a sony CDX-RA700 car stereo, I already have the breakdown of the wires coming from my truck (since someone cut the original harness). Now I need to know what the ones comiong...

look on the wires... the letters are small but they should tell you...

Red is hot
Black Ground
Yellow constant
orange should be for antenna
blue is for remote

I can't remember the speaker breakdown... but again, look carefully, and you should see it.

CDX-RA700 will not get power from my Honda Civic

Automobiles use Direct Current "DC" and is very dependant on a good ground. The black wire from your stereo should be the ground and needs to be attached to the chassis "metal part of the car". You can use an ohm meter to check for grounds by placing one lead on your door hinge (unpainted) and the other to where you are connecting your ground from the stereo. Be sure that this wire does not have voltage on it with the key off, on acc, or in the on position or you could blow a fuse or damage your equipment. Besides that make sure that you have 12v constant to the (usually red wire) and switched (voltage only with the key on) to (usually the yellow wire). Hope that helps. It's mostly about the ground.
