Question about Sony CDX-CA600X CD Player
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.

At present, the square connector is what is called an "Optical" connector. It's purely digital and transmits digital data via what looks to us like a RED LIGHT. Your headphones are incompatible. Your heaphones have an analog connection on RCA Phono type connections. The type you usually get on the back of hifi equipment.
The pannasonics DO have a headphone socket, but it is the small 3.5mm type socket. a small round hole that looks slightly larger than a pin head. It normally has a small diagram of a pair of headphones above or below the socket to indicate what it is.
In order to connect your headphones to your set you will need a stereo,male 3.5mm jack to two RCA Phono jacks.
If your current lead on your headphones has "male" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold points sticking out.
If your current lead on your headphones has "female" ends, the red and white ends should have silver or gold surrounds with holes in.
With this in mind, if you have male ends you will require a stereo 3.5mm jack to stereo female Rca Phono vice versa so that they basically lock into eachother forming a "Constant chain".
I have tried to explain this as best I can, I hope you've managed to get the idea of what I'm saying.
You will either need this :
or this :
Sometimes the colours of connectors vary. Just remember that Red to Red (for right hand side) and White to White or Black To White or Black To Black (for left)
