Sony CDX-L480X Hi, The other day I noticed that it was possible to plug a AUX lead into the back of my unit, upon trying this I plugged everything in and then plugged the jack into the iPod...I managed to get a small amount of sound but when trying to turn it up I get nothing just the same old quite sound does anyone know the reason? Am I doing something wrong? Please help. Thanks Paul.

In the main menu there should be an option to turn up the aux sound which will increase the vol on that and nothing else but when you turn up the main vol it should be the same?just remember to turn it down a bit before changing modes?
hope this helps?

I have a Sony CDX L480x fitted in my car, this radio has worked fine since i got the car, unfortunatly when i put the face back on it the other day, none of the buttons will work, volume, source...etc. All...

It sounds like the volume button may be jammed or the volume up switch may be bad. If the switch is open just enough to let some voltage through it locks up the microprocessor. Unless you have a multimeter and know how to check resistance on a switch you would be better having a professional repair person check it out.

Hello! My Sony CDX-L480X car radio can't read the CD-s. Could somebody help me to solve the problem?

Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning ,then the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. Hence it could reject but the best is do a cleaning manually of the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
But if any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of the processor board

Aux input for sony car stereo (cdx c 5000r)

For Sony Stereos, you will need to get what is called a Bus Converter. The RCA ports you are trying to use are for a CD changer or alternate device like satellite or HD radio, and those have to have some sort of frequency signal to even be selected. You can find a Bus Converter that will allow you to use this as an Auxiliary input. The device you are looking for is called a Sony XA 300, and it will allow you Two extra Aux Inputs, I believe.
