Question about Sony CDX-CA600X CD Player

1 Answer

CDX-CA600X Audio in sockets

The lead I am using terminates in a 3.5 stereo jack socket one end (into which I would plug the headphone output of my Mp3 player. The other end terminates in a pair of RCA phono plugs which I have plugged into the audio in sockets on the back panel. In the instructions with the head unit these sockets are named 'bus audio in' and are intended to receive the line out plugs from the cd changer (which I do not have). In the instructions it says that repeated presses of the 'source' button should cycle CD/CD,MD/FM. The CD,MD option does not appear,the source button just cycles between CD and radio. There is a socket on the back called 'bus control in' which I think must be connected for the set to recognise that something is plugged into the 'audio in' sockets, (I imagine these are what used to be called 'line in'. I need to find how to switch these 'audio in' sockets on to play the signal from the Mp3 plyer when it is plugged in to them.

Bus control


Hi there,
You need to provide Clock n Data signal to activate Bus Audio Source. Actually this Bus Control Socket is to attach Multi Disc Player of Sony. Here is 2 pictures attached of bus related area for info. I am sorry, its difficult to hear MP3 sound at Bus Audio input in this model. Have nice day.

Where are the amps and how do i by pass them for the stereo


The amps are located inside the radio. Most in-dash receivers that provide for "pre-amp outputs" also called "low level outputs" do so by providing female RCA type jacks. These are often found at the end of a short (4 - 6 inch) cable and are usually color coded red & white or red & black (some receivers provide a yellow RCA jack for video in / out, too). To use these RCA audio jacks, you need to realize that one jack is for the left channel source and the other is for the right channel source for a stereo signal. You will have to connect a compatible plug and cable of enough length to extend to a remote amplifier's RCA input jacks. The vehicle's speakers would also need to be connected directly to the same amplifier's output terminals. Using the two audio (left and right) RCA jacks will only allow the radio to control balance of the left and right audio, no fader (front and rear) control is possible. To get fader control, you'd have to either have a radio with four RCA low level output jacks (front L & R *and* rear L & R), or use the radio's speaker (or high level output) wires and connect them to the amplifier's speaker (or high level) input terminals.

All unused receiver wires should be terminated in a wirenut or securely wrapped in electrical tape to prevent accidental contact with grounded metal or other wires behind the dash.

I hope this helps!

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia

Want to use ipod on cdx-f5710, how to fix it


use the aux lite input on the rear of the reciever. If it is a 3.5mm plug, you will need an extension with both ends male. One end in the aux port, on your head unit, the other end in the headphone jack of the ipod.
If it is RCA Aux lite, you need an rca-to-3.5mm adapter. Either item should be relatively cheap. $4-$5 USD

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x


It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

MD/CD Changer Control Options


press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
