Question about Sony CDX-CA720X CD Player

Sony CDX CA720X in my boat

Hello,

I've got a problem I hope you can help me with. I have the above AM/FM Compact Disc Player that came with my boat and and later had installed a Memphis Audio amp and speakers. The system has two remotes, one at the helm and the other at the stern.

Everything has been fine with the system -- which is 3 yr old -- until this weekend. I cannot change the radio station -- its stuck on country and it the volume cannot be adjusted -- its stuck about half volume. I tried resetting the unit several times and have had no success. I need your help.

I called the outfit who installed the Memphis Audio amp and speakers and they felt the system was likely shot and they suggested installing a Clarion M 475 and I would need to also replace the two remotes -- and it added up very quickly! Hopefully you can help.

Thanks for any feedback and suggestions!

Regards,

Mac

    Hello Brian,



    Thanks and that makes a lot of sense!!



    I called my Cobalt boat dealer and they did a pretty to talk to them about it and they did a pretty amazing thing....they drove out to my lake house (140 miles round trip) this weekend and installed a new and upgraded radio at no charge!!



    I am wondering if in this case it was a remote problem since the new radio works just fine -- or it was in fact the problem and they fixed it and I got a new radio anyway?? I'll call him and see what he says. I'll let you know.



    In the meantime, I really appreicate your effort

Mac, I had the same problem, it was the hard wired remote at the Stern. When I unplugged it from the radio, everything came back to life and the radio and CD player are working fine. I'll have to replace the other remote at some point.

Hope this works for you...

Brian

Sony CDX-CA400 FM/AM Compact Disc Player


The optic inside the CD player may be dirty or damp, this is the part that reads the data from the cd, you can try cd cleaning discs or you may have get an engineer to open it and clean it with an alcohol swab. The optic could also be faulty which will be cheaper to buy a new cd player.

Cd player gives me a error code 4


The player doesn't like the brand of CDR your playing. Try using just a CD burner instead of a combo CD/DVD burner2_bing.gif. Also use Verbatim Pastel brand, because the player recognizes these discs easier. Also, it wouldn't hurt for you to run a commercial disc laser cleaner through this thing to clean the optical lens. Burn music using Nero software because its easy and the best.

Sony compact disc player initializing


Have you tried pressing hte RESET switch?? It's behind the removeable front of the stereo, use a biro or something and hold it in for a bit.

Failing that, check that there isn't a CD already in it, could be a dodgy CD?
