Hope this helps, if so please feel free to rate? (I have added a link for your manual also)?
Before operating the unit for the first time, or after replacing the car battery or changing the connections, you must reset the unit. Press the reset button with a pointed object, such as a ball-point pen. After the reset is complete, the pre-stored images are displayed. Press (image) on the card remote commander to show the clock display and set the clock and calendar. * Pressing the reset button will erase the clock calendar setting and some stored contents. * The unit starts to perform initial setling for IO seconds after you press the reset buttof). During this, do not insert a disc or "Memory Stick," othetwise the unit may not be reset. Should this occur, press the reset button again. * The unit makes some noise during the initial settings, this is not a malfunction.

    OK, that is now a problem I am afraid.
    The unit requires re-coding through a service/dealer centre.
    An on line de-coding service may not help you here as the unit, and I am sure (if memory serves me) that the remote may have to with it.

    Sorry cannot help further but good luck with it.

I don't think you need a code I think you just need to reset the unit check here http://www.docs.sony.com/release/MEX5DI.PDF on page 20 I believe for instructions. here is a link to more manuals for your radio http://www.usersmanualguide.com/sony/car_audio/mex-5di

Stero wont work .asking for code (y reg ford focus)


We are assuming that recently disconnected the battery and the radio lost power support, then the device is asking about the lock code to sure that this isn't a theft condition. This code is in the last pages of the owners manual; if you dont have this document, need to visit your delaer with the VIN number and showed that you are the owner. This lock code is unique e\for each vehicle and just the Ford dealer could give you.

Hope helps.

I recently formated my sony mex 1 gp head unit, and right now it is not able to read files copied onto it.


When you formatted it you also removed the default embedded players software. In the manual look up which player was incorporated into this player. All you should have formatted is the memory, now you will have reload the software for this equipmentand only an authorized Sony Service Center will be able to do that because that software is a patented one and you will not get it enywhere, even from the net.........sodeep

Security code Lockout


I had a similar issue with a head unit in a newer Volkswagen. There was an unlock code burried in the vehicle's owners's manual.

Since your stero is an aftermarket model, I would bet the unlock code is in the manual for the head unit.
