Question about Sony CDX-C5000X
I own a Sony xplod cdx c5000x radio. It says that it can play CDs and MDs. I thought that connecting my mp3 player into the Bus in connectors it would play...but it didnt..., please help me with my problem.
The multichanger has to be connected,with a cd in, but then the head unit will play whatever is fed to the bus in sockets. This effectively means the multichanger is playing to itself. If you want both to work, use a pair of piggy back rca leads into the head unit, one to the cd, one to the mp3. Then break into the cd leads and feed one of the pairs, one +ve, one -ve to a double pole switch so that you cut the sound from the cd allowing the mp3 in. To play cd's, flick the switch.

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!
