Question about Sony Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Sony Xplod 52wx4 stuck on one station! The car is a 97 so I have no idea how old the unit is. I emailed Sony 3 times and they keep saying I need to provide them the "complete/correct model number" . One person mentioned this is on the bottom. The ONLY number on the faceplate is a big orange X with the word "xplod" and under that, the 52w4x. The problem is that my daughter turned it on about 2 weeks and it was playing something she didn't like, she pushed a preset and the same song was fact she pushed ALL her presets and scanned/searched and even though the faceplate would show the call letters for the station that it is suppose to be on , it is ONLY playing ONE station. Could a button have gotten pushed that "locked" this station in? Someone mentioned that this meant her "head unit" was gone and the whole system needed replaced. Can you advise. This is a duplicate post, the other one didn't include my information on the problem. Sorry for any confusion. This unit is NOT a cd changer but just a CD player.

The model should probably be cdx followed by numbers. barring that the model # should be on the chassis of the deck. you could try pressing the reset switch (should either be a small indentation about the size of a pencil tip on the face, or a small hole on the subpanes behind the face. if there is no reset switch, you can reset it by disconnecting power for a few minutes.

I'd hate to say, but sounds like part of your tuner is going out/bad solder join/heat sensitive. Hope it isnt to old. Might call the manufacturer and see what they have to say.

Where can I get/download a manual for the Sony Xplod 52wx4 car radio

Sony's web site will provide a free owner's manual download, but you'll have to find out the model number. It should be printed on the faceplate, and will probably start with "CDX". Sony has used "Xplod" for their car audio line for at least the last 10 years, and 52x4 is a pretty common power rating for them, too; so you'll need more specific information before you start searching.

Once you find your model number, here's the link:
