Question about Sony CDX-R3300 CD Player

2 Answers

How do ya work this thing?

Hello, I just bought a used truck with a Sony Xplod CDX-R3300 in it. I was listening to the radio and turned up the volume on a good song and volume went through the rooof! In an attempt to keep my ear drums from bursting and blowing the speakers, I turned the unit off by pushing off button in upper right hand corner. Now I cant get the unit to power back up. What do you press to start it up? How do you eject a cd?When you push face plate down it says " eject" with small arrow but what do you actually press? Read where it plays mp3 music? Can I play my ipod Nano through stereo without buying an after market adapter?

I had the same problem. I would just take the face plate off and put it back on, shift it around a little and after a couple DAYS of doing this it would start working again. It did this to me about once a month. Also to eject, slide the eject bar down so its covering the screen, then slide it down til it clicks, wait until the CD comes out before you slide the bar back up.
Once your player has started doing this volume this I suggest getting a new one altogether because it will drive you crazy.

I have a sony mp3 xplod car radio, buttons wont work on it to operate probaly, any suggentions as to what is wrong?


I had the same problem with my sony CDX-GT540UI and solved it! I just kept clicking the "source/off" button when the display was showing the demo and suddenly it started switching to USB/CD/AUX etc. This means that the contacts inside the micro-switch were stuck in the down position, continuously making contact, and blocking the signals from the other buttons. Have to replace the micro-switch now.

I turned the volume up the other day and it got stuck, it kept getting louder and louder. I turned it off, but now I can only use the CD player. I can't change the volume on the CD player. I also can't use...


You need to free the stuck switch. As long as it is jammed, it is going to send a signal to the microprocessor. The microprocessor can only handle one command at a time, so while the volume up switch is sending a signal to it, it will do nothing else.

I recently installed my sony xplod to my jeep and the radio, volume works fine. when i insert a cd, i hear nothing, counter and track displays but no sound...please help


are you using an amplifier? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amplifier on.

do you mean the blue light on the power button? it sounds like your radio's switched power input (usually red) is hooked up to a 12 volt constant source.

Hold the volume button down until the clock setting comes on. Then press the same button until you see "Demo:On" on the screen. Turn the volume either up or down to change the setting and then hold the volume button down until you see "AUX" or "TUNER" on the main screen again.
