Question about Sony CDX-CA720X CD Player

1 Answer

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

My ripspeed incar dvd player has got no picture but has got the sound what can i do to make this work


First thing comes to mind is a possible update to the system. Have you had it for a while now? If so, you should go to the computer and go the maker of the unit. Check under software updates or downloads to see if there has been a remedy or fix that the maker has published, if so...then do as it says to do and see if this resolves the problem before you get into the actual technicals of the unit. It may need nothing more. I hope this helps.

Fm works, am does not


Check the antenna connection. A poor connection will often be good enough for FM but make AM reception so bad the the radios auto-gain circuits will mute the output unlike old AMs that would just produce loud static in poor signal conditions.

DVD won't place discs


Did that just begin out of nowhere? IS the Dvd spinning, if you listen closely and the player is making noise as well? That would be the lens trying to get a read on it but if it's scratched (I'm sure you tried others) sometimes the lens just go bad out of nowhere...Mu original 500 Sony PS1 in 1998 lost its lens about 3 months in...I can't think of anything else right this moment....I hope you fix it...
