Question about Sony CDX-M800 CD Player

2 Answers

I have bought a secondhand car with a CDX-M800 compact disc player but the previous owner doesn't have the code to release and allow it to be played. Can you help?

I tried to find a code for your stereo at Sony but tech support is closed right now.I am providing the link to them and you will have to contact them.These lockout codes are a real issue but I don't think it will deter thieves.They should give you the code for free.Also,if your battery ever gets disconnected it will lock up again so write down the code.Good luck!

Hello,

You will need to get the papers that came with your car, search all the documents that came with the car, the code to reset your car radio is written on one of the documents that came with your car. If you cannot get it, you will need to get the serial number on your radio and contact the dealer for the reset code, because, the dealers have the reset code, but you will need to tender prove of ownership before this can be done.

Can you provide me the serial number of your car radio,maybe i can suggest a code that may work.

Take care.

    Thanks for your help but another blogger on a different site has given me the correct code to clear the previous code and then enable me to set another. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Lost code for sony cdx-m800


You can enter a 4-digit security code as an option after purchase of the unit. If you do so, make sure it is noted down somewhere. If you did select a code (or the previous owner has done so) this must be used when the unit is removed from the vehicle, or the constant power source is disconnected from the unit. When constant power is restored to the unit, the security code must be entered before the unit becomes operational. If the code is lost or forgotten I am afraid the unit has to be re-coded by a Sony dealer.
Hope this helps, Good luck with it.

Black out


this is a coincedence. The CDX-M800 had a HUGE problem with the ribbon cable on the face going bad, causing this exact problem.
$14.00 and some time will put it back into perfect condition.
