yeah you have to either contact the person you got it from because they should know the key to it. the key is a cd actually and it has to be the same cd that they used too not just a copy of it. you have to hold the number 6 button and the function button bellow it and it will SEC for a second i think and then itll say disc and you have to put that disc in, otherwise if you cant get the cd they used you have to call this number 1 800 233 2216 itll be automated, listen to all that **** about if you know your parties extention blah blah blah then you hit the number five and youll get another recording, the hit number one. after that youll get a person to talk to actually and ask them to direct you to technical support and the person will tell you to take out the cd player and look underneath it for the serial number on it but leaving it still on and the guy will be able to unlock it over the phone. i just had to do that the other day hope that helps

The stereo's ESN Feature has activated. High-end Eclipse stereo's have a feature to prevent theft where if the battery is disconnected from the stereo, it must be "unlocked" with a "key" CD, that comes with the CD player but can later be changed to a personal CD of the owner. You would need to either call Eclipse and see if they can de-activate it (you'll need to ship it to them, if they even do it, because it is a security feature after all.) Or you need to talk to the last owner of the vehicle and have them unlock it.

The standby mode is just having the radio turned off with the car or key turned on. That's all.

First off who installed the radio?
If you or a friend did you ned to make sure that 12+ always is supplied to the radio and is hooked to the appropriate wire on the radio. If it does have 12+ always and it is hooked up correctly a replacement of the radio is in order, however I bet the wireing to the radio is crossed or the radio itself is uncorrectly installed.

The reason is the accessory and 12+ always wire has been crossed or was never there to begin with.

Have you tried cleaning the lens with a CD? The pickup might even be bad. Check this out: http://www.techlore.com/article/14550/ That article is completely applicable to car players as well.

Contact Eclipse directly inquire.

Touching the supply to the radio to the radio ground effectively reversed the polarity and semiconductors hate that as it destroys many of them in microseconds. You might be lucky and find the only damage is some burned printed circuit tracks - but it could be much, much worse...

I would recommend you purchase a new harness. Connecting a wire to the individual pins and then insuring that none of the leads touch another is difficult at beat. Replacement power/speaker harnesses are only $7 to 10. A simple google search showed several vendors.

Eclipse Car... • Answered on Nov 18, 2020

the esn is only active if the previous owner activated it. the user would of used a CD to be a key cd and that is how they are unlocked. if the cd is lost or damaged, Eclipse can give a code to unlock it. However the original owner needs to have registered the deck with eclipse and have some kind of ID like mother maiden name. there is also a second registration that can be done. which an eclipse dealer can do, it is for used cars with eclipse radios, and things like that. They can be real strict sometimes about giving out a code, and the authorized dealer has to be the one calling, and somtime that means a lot of time on hold.
