I have not found a way to select Audio In without the remote (and I've tried every combination of buttons I can think of!)

The approved way to select Audio In is to press the FUNCTION button on the RM-SC30 remote that should have been included with your Sony CMT-NEZ3. See to download your manual.

It won't be easy. The front buttons might not give you all the features. Buy a replacement remote.

I can't turn demo mode off or Standby from flashing on my Sony CMT-MX550i, can't turn unit off without unplugging it.

Sony CMT-MX550i -- I had good results by pressing the "TIMER MENU" button on the remote and simply setting the time. After that, no more demo.

My sony cmt-nex3 has the standby light flashing, but when i press the on butto, it doesn't turn on

Check the back for speaker wire shorts, next! there may be a short in the audio output chip or surrounding parts in the stereo, this is more suited for a technician to sort out.

Access MD function without remote

Sony CMT NE3. A solution to access MD/AUX function without remote.
If you accept to lose the function Tuner (or possibly CD but not tape) you could be interested with this method. Personally, I never use that function on this system. The idea is to feed the Aux input into the tuner input of the IC 302 ( a bd 3881). So, you select the tuner and you hear the Aux input. It works quite good (the display shows "FM" but it's not too much annoying...). You can reach of course the bass-treble etc. settings but be aware that it's not so easy: you will have to work with very small resistors SMD (about 1*2 mm) but, fortunately, only to take them away. It's easier.
You need a solder iron for unleaded soldering, a big lens, some classical tools and not to be blind.
You can get the service manual on
But it's not really necessary : the scheme pictures enclosed come from this site. Please, look at them.
Ready? First, take off the rear cabinet (many screws...).
You will have to take off 4 resistors - R116, R117, R216, R217- and set two wires on the main board, located on the left side, under a metallic cover you need to take off (2 big solderings). The PCB is of high quality and the resistors are well indicated. I hope my pictures will help.
Take heart! You will make it easily better than me; my wires are a bit damaged!
Questions : why is it impossible to do the same with tape ? Because the tape input on the IC 302 is not equivalent with the tuner, cd, and aux inputs (there is an extra preamplifier).
Don't pay attention at the IC302 two wires you can see cut on the picture. I thought first it was necessary to isolate the Aux input from the IC. It's not necessary.

Enjoy your new Aux input without remote (and try to forget the tuner...)!

How Do I Get a DVD to Work with This TV?

Make sure to switch the TV's tuner mode to Video or Aux mode.
You can change the mode using the original TV remote or directly from the TV's control panel.

Again, tuner mode picks up all live broadcast airwaves and Video or Auxillary mode displays what is inputed into the TV via second device..

Good Luck!
