Question about Sony CDX-CA850X CD Player
If you only get 1 station no matter what station you tune into, you have a ans electrical problem on the main board of the radio. Your tuning voltage is not changing as you tune thru stations. There is most likely a shorted or open transistor that supplies the tuning voltage on the main board.
There is no easy fix for this, you would need the schematic to find out why the tuning voltage is not changing.
If you know how to do electronic troubleshooting and have a multimeter and the schematic you can fix it with not to much trouble. If this is not the case, you will need to take it in to a service center.
Sorry that there is no easy fix for this problem.

There is a setting for this in menu. It defaults to "Auto" when the power is removed. It needs to be set to "Wide"
