This may be part of you problem........................

Hi this is the solution to the issue with the USB Error.

I recently bought one of these head units and found that when I inserted a USB it comes up with a 'USB Error'. Well I searched on Google and found others with the problem but no solutions. So I played around and here is the solution that worked for me.

Try lots of different USB Drives. Mine started to work with the forth one I tried. The size doesn't seem to be the issue as I tried a variety of sizes both small and large. But the one that works is a old one I have had lying about for ages (512mb) so it maybe USB 1 it may not be but that is my best guess.

I have been using the USB almost exclusively now without any problems.

I have yet to try the SD MMC Card so I can't comment on how that works.

Hope this helps somebody out because this seems to be so far a great little stereo, if you can find a USB drive that will work with it.

Best regards

How to reset my sony xr-m510

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

I have recently had a battery change on my renault, and now my cd player (wharfedale) wont come on. the power button is glowing red, but when i press it, it doesnt switch on now more

It probably is the antitheft system for the radio that requires a code be input into the radio to resume functioning whenever the radio loses power. You will probably need to contact the dealer to get the code for your particular car

Most of the aftermarket radios the colors are Blue or Blue/White wire. To make sure take a volt meter and proo it. You'll have 12 volts as soon you turns the radio on.

If you all ready try cleaning the CD lens now the next step is disconnecting the negative wire from the car battery for about 10 min. but make sure that you have the radio code before disconnect the battery or make sure that your radio does not have a security code, if nothing happen after this try you must send the radio for repair usually they have to replace de CD lens.

AUX doesnt work good. when i plug in my cord to my ipod and put the cord into the head unit the volume is really low and it sounds bad. i raised the volume up on my ipod all the way and its still the same

Test the cord first , the three parts on the male should make a different tone while connected to your radio Aux, If you can find a second cord test it again if not most likely your radio is bad.
