I had the same problem, so i opened it up and say that a big black transistor was leaking white fluid that hardened. it was right near the back of the unit I'm trying to look for a new transistor to replace it and if i find one ill let you know.

Everything works on this unit except FM. I can't tune any FM stations in. If i choose Search it just searches until I stop it. The presets which are set to FM stations are set to the correct frequencies...

Your tuner section is bad and needs to be repaired by a qualified repair technician. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Windle.

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x

It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

HELP !!!!!!!! STRESSED OUT!!!!

Here is the link to the user manual if you need it;®ion_id=1 Check page 20 for details of how to turn sound attenuation off and on. If still no luck, try resetting the whole unit (page 7) Try cleaning the front panel connectors (page 25) If this doesn't work, the "ATT" telephone interface connection cable may be shorting out on something - only way to check is to pull the unit out and check any of the unconnected cables, it should be labelled. Hope this helps :)

It's a lost cause. It needs a new CD mech, unfortunately.
