Hi there. I have a 2nd hand sony mdx-8200. The radio and voice prompts come through the speakers clearly but when i play an md no sound comes through the speakers but the display does all the right things. I do not have the stick control or remote so can not turn off the ATT like the manual suggest can anyone help??
I had the same problem before with the same unit, and I found that the problem was only the recording format, you have to record your MDs in SP mode, this is because, the mdx-c8200 is a non MDLP MD compatible unit. So, if you want to listen your MDs on your mdx-c8200 just don t record em in LP mode, just SP mode.

Turn on the radio and increase the volume if you can hear a hiss through the speakers, chance is the aerial/antenna connection is not hooked up correctly. Another way to check is try tuning to an AM station if you get a signal on AM but not FM then it is The antenna. You may have to remove the radio to get at the connection.

if one speaker in car is shorted or bad.It will cause the whole system to mute .You may need to have someone to disconnect one speaker at a time or pull out radio.Some systems have a seperate amp in rear of car .Check fuse for that amp//goodluck
Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).
You have a shorted speaker or a speaker with a bad voice coil. This has been confirmed by the fact that the audio amplifier is shutting down (protection) but the unit stays powered on. The speakers will play for a few seconds or maybe even longer at lower volume, but any length or time or an increase in volume will immediateley shut off sound. This is due to the fact that a shorted speaker wire/connection will ground out or short to one another. If you have checked all connections behind the radio AND at the speakers and found no problems, then it is a voice coil on the speaker. A shorted voice coil will work until the speaker cone moves causing the short or until enough power passes through the voice coil's short to turn off the radio. Solution: 1. You can use a voltmeter set to check continuity to test for a speaker short. Disconnect all speakers from the radio and connect one side of your meter to ground and the other to the speaker lead. An audible "beep" will confirm a short. 2. The other method would be to disconnect all speakers and re-connect them one by one until the radio's sound output shuts off again. This will be your shorted speaker. I hope this information was helpful.
Make sure you don't have the sound muted. Have you tried plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack? If you can hear sound with the headphones, most likely, the internal speakers have failed. If you still can't hear any sound, the audio output stage on the motherboard has failed. In either case, you will need to send the unit back for repair. Be sure to have your serial number handy.
