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"

Sony CDX-5005 factory installed in a Bryant boat... no out put in any mode to speakers. What replacement unit will fit and hook up to existing harness?


Any DIN style radio will fit onto the existing cut out.
Stay with Sony CDX family. The connect and color code will be the same.
=====
Do you still has the remote control for this Sony CDX-C5005?
This remote has an "ATT" (almost like mute) //// lower left hand button.
Aim the remote to the radio and press the ATT button and see is the volume restore to normal.
Click HERE (skip to page 6) for a sample picture of the remote.

Remove the radio, disconnect the blue wire, and connect the blue/white wire in its place. This should fix your problem.
