Buttons don't work but still plays cd

I have had my sony gt500 for about more than a year. today when i pressed the "source" button it didnt want to turn on. i pressed all the buttons for a response but none. i put a cd in and it started playing but i couldnt adjust the volume and every button still didnt work. I cleaned the connection from the faceplate to the main deck but nothing helped. any ideas what i should do?

    well, I think, connector pins of front panel might be tilted or lil-damaged. give a close look there and clean that connector.

I have a AIWA X204 CD in my car.I don,t know what I did, but the player doesn't answer to any comand. i push every one of button, but he don;t start to play.The screen it's light up,, and...


I think that's Demo mode.
I got stuck there too.

This is what worked for me:
  1. Power the radio off (hold the power button in top left corner in for several seconds)
  2. Remove face plate
  3. Hold in reset 10 seconds
  4. Press push-menu dial/button 3 or 4 times
  5. Insert cd and hit source to switch to tuner before cd starts
Not all of these steps may be necessary.
I suspect having the power off before the reset button was the important part.

When playing cds in my sony cdxgt500 the sounds come throught the door and rear speakers fine, but not through the subs. everything works as it should while playing the radio.


Hello.... it sounds like you have the remote wire for the amplifier hooked to the solid blue wire behind the radio. You need to hook to the blue/white wire behind the radio. What happens is that the solid blue wire turns on the power antenna when you are listening to the radio and it turns off (lets the antenna down) when you listen to a cd. There should be a blue/white wire that is the amplifier turn on wire that will stay on as long as the head unit is on. Hope this helped!

Buttons stopped working


sounds like you may have a bad switch. if you have a multimeter you can check to see if a switch is reading less then a few megaohms. if one is reading a few kilo ohms, it is probably bad.
