Question about Toshiba Sony CDXM8805X

2 Answers

Remote works, but not the reciever

I have had my Sony head unit for about 4 years now. The head unit does flip down, but none of the buttons work on the reciever. The remote controle can controle the head unit but the reciever itself just lights up and none of the buttons work. I dont have an eject button on my remote, so I cant eject the cd that is in the player. Any Ideas?

    Use a little magnet to touch the board where the button use to be.

This one is tough one. It soundslike you have lost the connection between the flip face and the main head unit. I suggest you pull the head unit and get it to a bench for closer investigation. Look for and tears in the connecting wire harness between the Flip control, and the main Unit.

Sony cdx-M8800 car stereo buttons wont work


There is a ribbon cable that runs all the flip panels electrics, these are prone to breakage.
I have seen some of the cables on e-bay for a few quid, and also if you google "sony x-pod ribbon cable" you will get a big choice of places to order, and get instructions on fitting.

Sony CDXM 8800 Xplod Car CD player won't repond when buttons are pressed


There is a reset button on the area behind the faceplate. You will have to go back in and redo many settings but just hold the tiny button down with a ballpoint pen for 15-30 seconds and it should reset allowing the faceplate buttons to operate.

I have found a solution to the question. This remote will allow a user to control a SONY receiver by pressing the "Use Mode Key" at the top of the remote, and AV1 or AV2 button, in the first line of buttons toward the top of the remote, at the same time and this allows for control of an unlimited number of SONY receivers

Programming the directv remote to program a sony audio receiver


Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
