Question about Eclipse CD5405

Car stereo lock up

Hello robotek, I was reffered to you by "worldvet" said that you would be best to address my problem. I have an eclipse 5405 that got locked up after disconnecting battery to work on lights. I understand that there is a CD that works as a "key" and possibly a security code. The stereo was installed and didnt come with the car. I have neither the CD or security code . When stereo comes on it reads "all off" then reads"call 800" then reads "SCC02082" these no. are not for phone help does the SCC stand for security code maybe? How do I enter it or what do I do to fix this problem. Can you help me? Thank you

The CD that is mentioned here does not come with the unit because it is actually a CD that you create yourself as in you insert your favorite CD, and the stereo then makes a note of how many tracks are on the CD and the length of each one and stores that information as your "KEY CD"
There is also an option at that time to disable the "KEY CD" feature all together since it is very easy to forget exactly what CD you used at that time later on down the road and hopefully it was a store bought CD that you can go out and buy again if you remember but no longer have it.. (don’t ask me how i know
But there is NO over-ride code or quick fix for the problem that I know of..

I was a certified car stereo and alarm installer for many years and we were even authorized eclipse dealers and even we could not get the codes and everyone that buys the stereo is informed about the special security feature of eclipse called: ECLIPSE Security Network (ESN) which is basically Do NOT ever call that phone number that you see there because the police are automatically sent to the location of whoever is calling that number) its a trick number for thieves.

Now if for some reason that someone has discovered a way around this "key cd" problem then I would be curious to know what that is ...because with all of the stereo knowledge i have I am 99.9% certain you will have to replace the unit with out the cd.. Or maybe find out what the top ten CD’s were on the music charts at that time and try those and maybe get lucky..


Good luck

UPDATE: I can not believe i found this info just now and i do not know if this is for real or not but heres a link anyway that apears to have the unlock procedure for all eclipse models..
(please use link info at your own risk)
thank you

Hi basic101

There is a security cd that comes with the unit originally. You use that to reset the code. without it, is difficult to fix here in this forum. .
There is also antoher way, if you had the unit installed,try playing the first Cd you ever played on the system. That apparant;y is a method for unlocking them also.

Other than that, you may need to get the serial number off the unit and get in touch with your local Eclipse Authorised repair guy.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) If you are still unsure, or have problems, then before you give a rating for this advice, please get back to me and we can try some more things.

Dell LCD monitor suddenly loses power


Five years is a long time for an LCD panel. You definetly got your money's worth.

But, if your trouble shooing has led you to this conclusion I can also only conclude that the power driver inside your panel just gave up the ghost.

However, try giving Dell a call, for what's thats worth and see what they have to say.

You might also want to ask this expert "Robotek" what he may think as he is a board troubleshooter and could give you an answer if one is there.
