The tuner secton has defective components. It is servicable by an experienced tech who is familiar with the model and has the setup to troubleshoot and service it.

Considering the cost of service compared to replacement, I would think it would be best to replace the unit rather than invest in to servicing it.

Sat nav and radio not working


Good Afternoon Michael

Sounds most likely to be an antenna issue. Most everything going into the radio needs an antenna to be picked up. Sometimes, a station or two might still be heard above the static if they are local and fairly strong signals.

If you can get normal sound from other inputs, like MP3 players or CDs, then the amp and output parts of the unit are fine, and it's an issue of getting an input signal to use.

If you have the tools, pull the stereo head unit from the dash and make sure the antenna input cable(s) are firmly in place. Likewise, depending on location, you can likely get to the base of the external antenna, where the other end of the cable plugs in, and make sure it's in snugly.

lacking the tools - you can talk to your dealer or a local car audio place. They'll likely have the tools, and a check for antenna cable connection would not likely be too expensive or time-intensive.

Good Luck!

My Radio dont work.....It plays dvds,cds just fine


has the radio ever worked since you had it put in? There is a chance that either the installers never reconnected your antenna, or it wasnt seated all the way and finally wiggled loose. Could also be mute wires are wired wrong.

Station 1450 has irregular noise when car is running; 1240=OK


Hello,

If the "static" you are getting is a high pitched whine and the noise volume increases and decreases with changes in engine speed, you probably have alternator induced radio noise.

Many times such noises are caused by poor ground connections that have begun to corrode over time. First try removing or loosening the screw or bolt which grounds the radio to the vehicle frame. Using a fine wire brush or a piece of steel wool, clean off both the terminal and the location on the vehicle where it was attached. Then reattach the ground. While you are behind the dash, make sure that the antenna connection is fully seated. Pull it out and put it back in again to make sure.

If these steps do not solve the problem, you may need to install noise supression devices. The are available at many retail locations like Radio Shack and some auto parts stores, as well as numerous online stores such as: http://www.crutchfield.com and http://www.sonicelectronix.com.

Usually when you lose only AM it is an antenna issue. Check for a loose antenna plug on the back of the radio or connection to the antenna.

Excessive static on AM stations. Waves in and out. Not so on car radio. Is there an antenna to eliminate this?


Turn on the radio and turn the AM/SW BAND switch to the AM position. MW appears in the display. Use the outer ‘fast’ tuning knob to find stations, fine tuning with the inner ‘slow’ knob
when needed.

• If there is interference from adjacent stations, place the BAND WIDTH control in the NARROW position. If there is no interference, leave it in the WIDE position.

• If there is excess background noise, turn on
the SW LPF switch, which may minimize the noise.

• If a station is so strong that audio distortion occurs, reduce the gain level with the AM/SW RF GAIN control knob by turning it counterclockwise.

• The telescopic antenna does not have to be extended for AM reception. The radio has an internal, directional, ferrite-bar antenna for AM reception.

• To optimize AM reception, swivel the radio until maximum signal strength is achieved.

All of that being said: It's very tough nowadays to receive AM in this 2008 electronic world. If your able install a longwire SW antenna outside, and have access to a good earth ground, you can boost the AM signals and beat the noise being generated all around you.
