The easiest thing to try is to clean all of the electrical contacts between the faceplate and the HU with rubbing alcohol. Also, play around with pressing on different points on the faceplate while pushing buttons. See if any point that you press causes the issue to happen more/less often. It may be as simple as a contact that is barely touching its mate.

Beyond that, it's possible the faceplate is starting to go south, in which case a new faceplate may be in order. Unfortunately, I didn't see any for sale on eBay, but you might look around.

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...


Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly


Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck
