Sony car radio/CR/cassette doesn't hold pre recorded radio stations once ignition is turned off

I have recently changed vehicles and my daughter has had our old Sony brand XR-CA340 radio/cassette/Cd put into her vehicle. The unit works fine once you turn it on, however you have to put in your favourite stations everytime you start the vehicle, it doesn't hold the prerecrded radio stations.

Run the yellow wire to the battery as its the memory wire and that will work if it is installed correctly and still does the same it can be the battery even if the battery still works.

Lexus nakamichi 12 cd player repair


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

blem: I get noise on my car audio system that disappears when I turn the car off.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
Alternator or ignition noise is being picked up through the power connection. Install a 12-volt noise filter between the power tap and the power input on your car audio. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: The sound distorts at high volume when I play the radio in my car audio system.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The radio wattage is too low to drive the speakers. Use a car amplifier to increase the radio's power. Replace the speakers with ones which match the radio's output. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: My car radio only get one station.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
There is a problem with the wiring. Check the antenna circuit and rewire if necessary. There is a problem with the antenna. Check the antenna and replace if necessary. There is a problem with the radio. If you received more than one station with your previous system and you have already checked the wiring and the antenna, either replace the radio or send it to a service center. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: My car radio keep running hot and blowing fuses.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The wires to different speakers have been combined rather than run separately. Make sure that each of the speakers has 2 wires run to it. Combining speaker wires will cause this problem. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: I lose my station memories in my car radio when I turn off the vehicle.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The tuner memory wire may not be connected properly. Connect the yellow wire to your vehicle battery's positive (+) terminal or to a fuse that provides a continuous source of 12 volts. This connection provides continuous power for the clock and tuner memory when the ignition is turned off. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: The amplifier stays on for a few minutes, then shuts off, then comes back on, then shuts off again.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
It is overheating due to power issues. Check your power ratings to be sure they match the amplifier's specifications. There is a problem with the amplifier. If the power ratings are correct, the amplifier needs to be sent to a service center. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: When using two amplifiers, I lose the right channel on one amp.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
There is a problem in the sound system or wiring. Try swapping amplifiers or bypassing that amp. If the problem persists on the right channel on both amps, check the wiring and sound system. There is a problem with the amplifier. Replace the amplifier that displays the problem or send it to a service center .

I bought a '96 Mustang with an Alpine CHM 5620 CD player already installed. The unit appears in great shape and looks as if it were installed by a pro. It seems to load up the CD cartridge and change CDs...


This model of cd changer doesn't have the fm modual built into it. So I am wonder how this setup worked before. Most of these units had an FM tansmitter in them and you would just turn on your factory radio and set the fm tuner to a certain frequency like 89.5 or 91.3, not excatly sure on the right number, but somewhere low in the range. Turn on the stero and try tuning into differnet stations.

But like I said this model is desgined to be used with a aftermarket head unit with the proper wired connection going from the cd changer to the head unit.

What channel do you set the radio to inorder to get audio from cd


88.7 , 89.1 I think. Give it a try if not then turn on the disc changer load the cd and once the cd begins to play hit scan on the radio and let the scan feature find the station for you, were ever it stops and u hear clear music then thats the station and just preset it on your preset keys.

Good luck and please rate and vote for me if I helped you. Thanks....

I have Cassette in dash Sony. 10 disc Sanyo changer. Line in doesn't work so I use antenna hook up. This way causes radio stations reception to be weak. I use 88.7 as 89.1 wont work. Only 2 choices. Please...


If your vehicle needed antenna adapters to convert to standard rf ends,(GM uses them, some Fords and some imports as well) chances are you've lost alot of signal. If you can solder well, you can pick up standard antenna ends at Radio Shack and solder them on in place of adapters, this will regain signal strength. If you do not have adapters on your antenna for the changer, check the ground of the RF module. Move it to the floor or directly to the in dash units ground. If you are uncomfortable doing this, most custom car audio shops can knock it out in an hour or so and probably charge 40-50 to do it. Hope this helps

I can not play my Honda CRV 2004 stereo system. Errors come up


The procedure for mostly all Honda CRVs are the same as follows:
1) Turn off your radio with the ignition switch turned on.
2) Press #1 and #6 on your radio simultaneously. While holding these numbers pressed in, turn on the radio and watch the console on the radio. It will display two sets of numbers which will switch back and forth like U251 1 and L362 2. Take these numbers down and call any Honda dealer with them. With these numbers, any Honda dealer will be able to get you the code. If you are lucky they may not charge you but it will be worth a small fee.

The dealer will give you a number like 42351 or so. Turn your ignition off and enter these numbers - then turn your ignition back on and your radio should come on. Keep fiddling with this procedure until you hit it right.

Good luck

Actually, there a re a bunch of hits when you Google it.

Here's the answer I found straight from Pioneer:

If your car CD player is a 2006 model or newer:
  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • Press and hold the MULTI-CONTROL button for 2 seconds
  • Rotate MULTI-CONTROL button until display reads CLOCK.
  • Push MULTI-CONTROL button up or down to adjust hour and minutes.
  • Press ESCAPE or SOURCE button to exit

If your car CD player is newer than 2000 but older than 2006:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button, until the display pops up, then release the button.
  • (If you do not have a function button, use the AUDIO button instead).
  • Press the FUNCTION button again until the clock shows on the display.
  • Press the UP and DOWN buttons to adjust the hours.
  • Press the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to move to the minutes.
  • Press the UP and DOWN to adjust the minutes.
    When you've completed all the steps, just press the SOURCE button to exit
    .

If your car CD player is 1999 or older:

  • With the ignition on and radio OFF,
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number preset button to set the hour.
  • While holding down the CLOCK button, press the number 2 preset button to set the minutes.
  • Pressing the respective buttons consecutively or continuously will advance the hour and minute.
For further assistance please consult your user manual.

Here are some other answers from around the web:

Hold down the source button till the unit switches off. Press thefunction button until it says clock. Use the tuner/volume controls tochange the time. Left/right switches between hour and minute. Up/downchanges the actual numbers.The website I'm including has all the old manuals on it if this doesnot work for you. Problem is, you may not know your model # so willhave to click through the links till you see a pic of one that lookslike yours. Hope this helps. I'm stoked that my clock is finally right!

turn the radio OFF with the car ON
then its easy to set the clock.
Most folks try to figure it out with the radio on
and it cant be done with the radio on,

Turn it off. Hold down "func" or "function" until something happens.
Then press the arrow keys still something else happens. When you're done, press "func" or "function" till nothing happens. Turn it on.

How do I program the radion station?


The device you listed is a 6 cd changer, it does not hold radio stations.

As for the head unit in your car, you can try tuning in the station and then pressing and holding the location number you want to save it to (1-6).

That works for most of them.

You can add the model name and number to this question if that doesnt work.


Best of Luck.
