If it ain't turn on at all check your fuse box. It could he a fuse under hood in car under dash. If the fuse is good then pull the radio out. Do a smell test on it. If you don't smell anything suspicous then check your red yellow and ground wire. Yellow being your switched 12v which turns off and on with ignition. Check red wire also. Also ground wire is very important.if none of those work it will need to be replaced. Check fuses carefully. A blown fuse can sometimes be easily missed

Hi nick, there can be many causes for this fault.
1. your speakers or speaker cables are faulty, then this problem will come up.
2. your installation is done incorrectly, or with the wrong gauge of power cables can cause this problem.
3. your vehicle battery could be weak.
4. you could have an internal problem with the amp only, which needs repairs.

Hi, check all the switches on the face panel, if the switches donot have a "click" feel when pressed then they are faulty.The face panel then needs internal repairs. Also check the gold connections behind the face. Check to see if all the contact pins are clean and shiny, and the same goes for the contact pins on the head unit side as well. cheers.

The directions to remove the Sony CDX-S2000 are in the operating manual, starting on page 15. You need the release keys that came in the original packaging before installation. The installation manual also shows these steps. First remove the front panel by pressing in on the bottom left corner. Then pull the panel towards yourself. This is shown on page 7. Next engage the release keys on sides of the protection collar. (Use the wide end of the keys oriented as shown in the picture). Pull out the keys to remove the protection collar. Reverse the release key and face the hook on each key towards the AM/FM/CD-player. Insert the keys together until you hear a click. Pull the keys out to unseat the unit. Now you can pull the unit out of the bracket.

Sony has the installation manual and the operating manual on the product site: . The current link to the operating manual is . The link to the installation guide is .

I hope this helps. If you need the keys, I found apparent replacement keys for sale at Amazon here: .

Hi, Error messages can be found at E:62:10 has nothing to do with the LCD but is a generic error of the stabilizer. This is a very well known problem that happens a lot and still today with Sony camera's. After less than 3 years of use the stabilizer breaks down, making it impossible to take sharp pictures, and displaying the dreaded E:62:10 error message. Thousands of users on the Internet have the same problem, read the website or search E:62:10 on the Internet or on YouTube. A temporary solution could be available at

Yes, speakers are rated by power handling capacity, Having an amp with less than the power handling o speaker will not hurt anything.
