I have a sony mp3 xplod car radio, buttons wont work on it to operate probaly, any suggentions as to what is wrong?

I had the same problem with my sony CDX-GT540UI and solved it! I just kept clicking the "source/off" button when the display was showing the demo and suddenly it started switching to USB/CD/AUX etc. This means that the contacts inside the micro-switch were stuck in the down position, continuously making contact, and blocking the signals from the other buttons. Have to replace the micro-switch now.

AMP shuts off

your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help

Hello I have a Sony CD headunit (cdx-565up) and the face comes on but you can't do anything but turn it up and down can't switch stations can't adjust nothing just comes on turns up and down that's it

Take a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and clean each button thoroughly to remove any residue. There is a eject lever on the device that could be out of place. To fix this some minor repair will be needed. Taking the face plate off using the small button on the lower left hand side will give you access to the reset button. Try this before opening up your entire device. Try any above of these Hope it helps you Good luck

How do I connect a Sony xplod 1000 watt 2 channel amp to 1 10" dual 4 ohm voice coil 1500 watt planet audio subwoofer?

Connect one voice coil to one channel of the amp. Repeat with the other voice coil. Do not bridge the amp as your only choices would be series which would be an 8 ohm final load and cuts the amp power in half or parallel wiring which results in a 2 ohm load and very few Sony amps currently made can handle being bridged to a 2 ohm load.

CDX-S2000 Volume, Source, and Mode buttons not working????

Hey jshaff, try taking off the detachable front, and you will see a reset button, press and hold in for 10 secs, this should solve your problem. if it doesn't work first time keep trying. you must have power to the head unit for this to work. you will hear the cd make a noise and that should be that, try and let me know.

How to decrease the volume on my cars radio volume control button. Car radio is a SONY CDX-3100

There is a large, round twist button on the LEFT side of the display screen. Twist this to adjust the volume, usually Clockwise for louder and Counter clockwise for quieter. Try this web link for the user manual. https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/res/manuals/4542/45423032M.pdf
