Question about Eclipse 5443

1 Answer

Eclipse 5443, something is up...

So my vehicle needed some serious work on the heater core so the whole dash was removed along with most of the audio in it. Its an older car and it has an eclipse 5443 head unit. Old Boston Acoustic speakers along with two sub amps, and a 500 watt amp. The only thing removed was the 4 front speakers, and and the head unit. Everything was working fire before hand. Now when I turn the car on I get an error message on the display screen of the deck that reads, Call 800 then a pause then C7300835. My first thought was this was some support phone number. So I called it and nothing happened. Anyways, Im kinda stumped as to what I need to do, aside from getting a new deck.

Re: Eclipse 5443, something is up...

Eclipse used an anti-theft technique where a special CD is required to unlock the unit if it loses power. These were not always set up, and I got lucky where mine was not... You may be able to contact Eclipse about it as it is an older unit, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

How do I remove a cd out of an eclipse cd3100 with no power

You don't unless you remove the unit from dash and open it up to expose innards and disk.

I want to connect my mp3 player to my eclipse 5443 cd receiver in my car.

If there no suitable audio inputs at the back of the CD reciever then you can use an audio FM transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter, then connect your MP3 player into the FM adapter and tune your FM radio the the FM transmitter's frequency to listen to the music on your MP3 player.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Spider Gt-S I cannot figure out how to get the fascia panel and face plate off of the radio to get to the numbers needed to retrieve the radio code. How do I take the panels OFF?


The stereo in the Eclipse can be removed with nothing more than a Phillips screwdriver

Disconnect the negative battery cable from your Eclipse's battery. Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio/climate control trim panel. Lift up the bottom of the trim panel to unlock the lower retaining clips. Work your fingers around the sides of the panel to loosen the other clips and remove the panel. Remove the four Phillips screws holding the stereo in place. Slide the stereo out of the dashboard and disconnect the wiring harness and antenna cable from the back of the device.

I can't get my cd out...where is the eject button? everybody has looked and no one can find it...

OK. in the front of the DVD draw, you will find a small hole, insert a paper clip, or similar straight stiff wire, push in until you feel/hear a "Click" gently keep pushing in, and the draw will pop open.

Deck lights up, comes on, acts like its receiving radio signals, but has no sound, except through the pre-outs.. there is this small silver box that has this buzzing noise also... any help would be GREATLY...

this is a old reply but I think one of the small dip switches on the side of the head unit is in the on or off position for the speakers to run off a amp from the rca's. Switching it to on or off should but the sound output back to the wire harness speaker hookups

2001 stereo code.

The stereo's ESN Feature has activated. High-end Eclipse stereo's have a feature to prevent theft where if the battery is disconnected from the stereo, it must be "unlocked" with a "key" CD, that comes with the CD player but can later be changed to a personal CD of the owner. You would need to either call Eclipse and see if they can de-activate it (you'll need to ship it to them, if they even do it, because it is a security feature after all.) Or you need to talk to the last owner of the vehicle and have them unlock it.

Hi Rozz,

That is the LCD screen and the backlight has evidently burned out. See if you can find a broken Eclipse of the same model on Ebay and replace your LCD screen.

Setting clock

With the unit off, press and hold display while pressing the (1) and (2) preset buttons for the hour, and (3) and (4) buttons for the minutes.... Took me 5 months to figure that out.

I closed my Eclipse editor after usual work; and i came on next day to office,try to open it ,but not getting opened by saying "An error has occured .see the log file"

Start by looking at the last line:

MESSAGE Missing required bundle org.eclipse.gef_0.0.0.

Looks like it can't find the GEF (graphical editing framework) libraries. They should be in your eclipse/plugins directory - if not, download a fresh copy from and extract into the plugins directory.

Can you post the output after doing this, so we can see if the Quantum / OSGI libs are missing too?
