Question about Jeep Radios: Genuine 6 Disc Cd Changer

Sony Marine Radio

Installed Sony Marine radio/cd player in my boat and it seems to randomly power down when I turn up volume and sort of reset. Is this some kind of safety feature. Been a while since I installed anything like this my self.

    What I found was the locking mechanism was not holding tight enough when the face cover was closed. This caused intermittent operation, I cured it by taping a thin pad on the cover so the prong would make full contact. My only concern is that the seal may not be water tight.

I have a new Sony Marine radio and they keep getting blown up and I don't know why. Some say it's due to my GPS antenna being so close to the radio, while others say it's due to to much voltage (which is 14.5- 14.8). The fuse on the back has never been blown but the unit comes up stating OFFSET. The manual states that this is a internal problem but what's causing it??

I'd like to know before getting a new radio, I've gone through two units so far.

Hi Jim

Your VHF lives in a fairly harsh marine environment and you're correct in thinking "tuner cleaner" might be the answer. I believe that your volume control is simply dirty. I would suggest using silicone spray (WARNING- Use ONLY the safe for plastics type.) to clean it. I've had good success just removing the control knob and blasting the pot, working it back and forth. You MIGHT wish to do this with the power off however, unless you have a great set of earplugs.

You mentioned that you have a handheld VHFas well. Any chandlery will carry an adapter (about $10) to let you hook your portable to the big antenna should a problem with your marine VHF arise. We've had the occasion once to have to do this and we were glad we carry the handheld aboard at all times.

Cheers!

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

Hello LJones0455. From your detailed attempts there are few options. Position the transducers one foward one aft. Connect the negitives of the battiers to the boat still route both positive & negitive wiring to all devices. Check the continunity of your transducers include flexing while ohming. Let me know of the results.

When volume is turned up the radio shuts off


Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.

JBL MR-4 CD doesn't eject


The unit probably doesn't think there is a CD inside. Possible doing a soft reset will fix this. Do so by powering the unit and putting a ball point or other pointed object into the reset button opening either on the face of the radio or behind the face. A hard reset can be done by disconnecting constant power from the unit for approximately 15 seconds.
If either of these methods fail, then your unit has a bad CD mechanism or more than 1 CD inside the player. In that case, the unit will have to be serviced by an electronics repair or a local stereo shop. This is a Marine radio, and if installed on a boat, this problem is not too uncommon. Moist air can cause damage to the unit as well as the bouncing on the water that boats do.

Sony CDX CA720X in my boat


Mac, I had the same problem, it was the hard wired remote at the Stern. When I unplugged it from the radio, everything came back to life and the radio and CD player are working fine. I'll have to replace the other remote at some point.

Hope this works for you...
