Re: AM section does not work

Got the same problem. I have a 2003 honda civic with the antena built into the rear window. Had an applified antena installed and that helped but the stations are still much poorer than the original honda radio. Not sure what the deal is.

No AM radio?

Try pressing down on the directional pad located on the right side of the stereo, this should bring you to the AM setting. If that doesn't work, make sure you have the proper antenna cable installed as well as the proper wiring harness.

2007 Chrysler 300 , AM radio not working , but FM works fine

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

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.

Bad reception

I see you've already read the "Troubleshooting" section of the manual! The only other things I can think of to check would be the actual connection between the radio (aka head unit) and the antenna. It's usually just a press-fit connection behind the radio, but if it's loose, corroded, or is touching some other metal, it could affect the reception.
There's also the small possibility something changed at the transmitter tower for the radio station. That happened in my area once, where they changed the direction in which most of the signal power was being broadcast. Westside reception got better, eastside reception got worse.

Cant turn off the demo mode

There is often confusion in the way the manual states how to achieve removing demo mode. Because this is listed in the "Menu System" section of the manual and assumes you read from page 1 of the manual that you will know to enter the menu in this section of the manual. Here is step by step instructions on removing demo mode on your unit. 1. Go to standby mode 2. Press and hold the menu button till the menu comes up 3. Press control knob towards AM or FM to scroll through menu till you locate "Demo On" 4. Press control knob straight in for approximately 3 seconds till it switches to "Demo Off" 5. Hit menu button again to exit menu
