Check for a loose antenna connection, at the unit and where your antenna is attached to your car. Also, check fuses, some cars have 'powered amplified' antennas.
If those dont work, try resetting the unit. On most units there is a small pinhole behind the faceplate(not on the faceplate). Could also be the internal tuner has gone out...

Hope this helps

    It's in a 1995 Toyota pick-up no power antenna, I have tried a reset and total power down none of which helped but I would like more info on internal tuner, could one be purchased where is it what's it look like I have had this radio all the way apart and back together and all work that did work before. Sony says they will swap me a reman one for my old one for $160 but I'll buy a new one that plays DVDs before I do that!!!

i use to have the same radio, the only way is to use the AUX with a RCA to 3.5min cable. i dont think sony has a ipod interface for that radio because of its age. Wish i still had it!

Where is the aux input on the sony cdx-mp70?


Hello,

check the front of the player. If you don't find any Aux input then it means your player does not have Aux input.

Take care.

Do the cdx-4000x have a ipod plugin


No, not directly. Here is a link to Sony for your CDX-4000X Operating Instructions.
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/CDX4000X.pdf
Belkin as well as many other companies make devices that plug into the ciggarette lighter and then into your iPod. There is an FM tuner controller than sends the music from the iPod to an FM station on your head unit. Belkin calls theirs a 'tunecast auto'. I believe it sells for about $30 USD.

I have a Sony cdx-c5005 in my Bryany boat that doesn't get any FM reception. CDs work perfectly fine.


Make sure that antenna is plugged in CXD-C5005 to provide radio signal to tuner, without antenna it wont give you any station sound.

There is a auxiliary button on the sony cdx-m8800. Is there a way to hook up an IPOD? The stereo also has MP3 written on the inside face. Thanks


Contrary to the below Expert's testimony, the UK CDX-M880 has a REAR AUX connector that will enable you to play your iPod through your car's stereo.

You will not be able to control the ipod's interface through the radio. You will have to use the control on the iPod .

You require a Male 3.5mm extension cable like the following...

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?


This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.
