Question about Blaupunkt Cancun CR63

1 Answer

Blaupunkt cancun cr63 car radio

Radio worked fine- then battery died (had nothing to do with radio). when i jumped the car- the radio went "haywire" the radio now comes in on a random station and instead of "am" "fm" mode it comes up with "vf" signal. i cannot hear the station that does come in. when i press the volume up/down the radio freezes. it also freezes when i get to the balance/fade selections. i reviewed the manual online but there is no trouble shooting. i have done nothing

    yes i forgot to mention that i had the cd mode coming up also. when you say fuse- do you mean in the car/van or the fuse somewhere in the radio? i am not to wise at these things,
    but i do love to try to figure them out. I also love music.
    if you give me hint on that fuse i will look into that too. hopefully with 2 of us working on it- we can fix them.

    Thank you :)

I'm having the exact same symptoms and have had the same luck online. My guess is that the logic got fried during the "brown out" while trying to crank the engine on a very low battery. I thought I might find something about the "VF" and "SK" modes that it is getting into (pretty cool if I weren't missing my radio stations). I'm guessing they are European bands or something. Also getting into a CD changer mode - funny since this was a pretty low-end cassette tape model. My Cancun is 12 years old. What I'm going to try (when it stops raining) is to disconnect the battery leads for 15 minutes or so and then reconnect to see if that clears out the radio memory (if I could easily identify the correct fuse, that would make the process much easier but, alas, I can't). Let me know if you have tried anything else and I'll let you know if my attempt works.

    FIXED IT!!! Tried the fuse thing (#10 in the in-car fuse box) but it did not work.

    However, I disconnected both sides of the battery for about 45 minutes and then re-connected. The rational mind of the radio came back!! I had to re-program all of the stations, but at least now I can listen to AM and FM.

    I'll bet the same will work for you!

    good luck!

Bad battery or alternator. Jump it again and with it running, pull off the positive battery cable. If it dies, its a bad alternator. If it stays running, its a bad battery.

Sounds like your battery died on you. Have it checked at an auto parts store for free, also if jump starting the car works but it dies after removing the jumper cables the alternator is bad. Check the battery first as it only takes one bad cell to kill it. Most batteries are only good for a few years, longer if you're lucky. A battery can die on you with no warning sometimes.

might be due to the battery being bad and may need replacement but if the battery is holding a charge then it might be due to a short out in some place
