Question about Blaupunkt Casablanca CD51 CD Player
I have this unit but no sirius hook-up.
I have had it in the Ford F-150 for about 4 years.
Lots of troubles.
It has gotten where it cannot be trusted to work for long.
In operation (either CD or radio) it just suddenly goes off.
To re start I have to remove the faceplate and rub it on my jeans-leg and then reattach.
Itmay then work for a while. Anywhere from less than a minute to a coupleof hours. If I dont rub the back of faceplate on jean leg, it does notre-start. Also sometimes it does not restart anyway.
This problem does not just happen when I hit a rough spot on highway. Just anytime, any condition.
Alsothere has recently been some mystery alilment with the volumeadjustment. When I try to up or down volume the unit may (not always)adjust in opposite direction. Also it seems that I have to spin thevolume dial much too many revolutions for even a small adjustment.
Any help appreciated.
Also where do I send the thing? And do I need to send it all or just the faceplate?
Is the logic circuitry in the faceplate?
Sounds like weak power wirring, make some FRESH connections=BOTH!!!...;)

It sounds like a bad connection between the faceplate and the unit. Have look at the way the faceplate connector makes contact with the connector. You may be able to bend something to make it make a stronger connection. Also check that the contacts are not dull or dirty.
