Problem with Sony CDX-CA650X CD Receiver, please help

 

Aaron
Hello

I own a Sony CDX-CA650X CD Receiver and when I insert a CD, the unit makes a clicking noise, (gears grinding) I have taken the HU out and blown on it and it begins to work. Could this have anything to do with cold weather? It has happened twice so far. Please explain what is wrong and why it is happening. Does it damage the receiver?
Thanks.

Aaron
 

CDX-CA650X WIRE SCHEME (DIAGRAM) CAN YOU HELP ME? PLEASE
 

Can you use a different faceplate with the Sony CDX-CA650 unit>
 

i have the same problem w/mine and im actualy online tryieng to find parts to fix mine those noises are caused by a spring that holds the parts that load the cd i found out that the spring on mine had stretched and so after i load a cd in the spring sometimes doesn't have enough tension to pull those parts back. this is what happened w/mine it might be diffrent in your case but i thought it was similar to what mine is doing. sorry i dont know the technical names of the "parts" i mentioned but any way i hope it helped you in anyway

I have a sony cdx-ca650x cd receiver, it has a cd in it and it won't eject it or play it. It just says "RESET" on the screen. I push the reset button and nothing happens. Does anybody know anything else I can besides take it to a repair place? Has this ever happened to anybody else before? Any help appreciated.
 

I have a 2003 Nissan Frontier. I put a Sony Disc changer in it and now when the truck is turned off approximatly 20 sec after shut down the speaker beep 3 to 4 times. The only wire that was not connected to the harness was a orange wire coming from the Sony. There were no orange wire coming from the Nissan harness. After installation the lights on warning when the key is removed is not working. Can someone help me?
 

James Mine beeps as well I beleive that it is just a warning to remind you to remove the faceplate.

you can try and hot wire the unit instead of using the Nissan harness:

Red wire: Constant 12V
Yellow and Orange can be combined together (ignition) or you can wire the whole stereo to the hot wire but you will have to remeber to turn it off when exiting your ride.

Blue wire: Remote to amp or power antanna if neither is used just cap it off.

you can e-mail back if you have any questions of what I reccomend you try: computer_sale_dell@yahoo.com

My xplod head unit cuts out when i turn it up past 20. I am not running an amp, just 4 xplod 2-ways. It seems as if someone just turns the power off when the volume is up... it's turn back on, build up the volume, and cut right out again. Anyone else have this problem ? Anyone know how to fix it ?
 

I have installed my ca650x into a new car and now when I turn it on it works for about five minutes then "ATT" comes on and then clicks off and then my speakers dont work. Does anyone know what could be wrong and how to fix it. If so email me at hoffpott@yahoo.com in the subject line put "car stereo". Thank you.

I just bought the sony xplod cdx-ca650x car deck and don't know which plugs I use for my rca cables in order for my amp to run.
 

James
For the sony cdx-ca650x, an amplifer for subwoofers should be plugged into the rear rca jacks. Then make sure you run the blue with white stripped wire to your amp so when you turn on your head unit, it will turn on your amp as well.
 

I have a CDX-CA650X cd player and i need to find some manuals or wiring diagrams that shows steps to install my player, if anyone can post some wire connectons like which color goes where, that would be great.

Hello I own a Sony CDX-CA650X Radio and I need to find the accessory that attaches to the back of the rado . I dont know the name of the piece, but it connects to the Radio right below the fuse. It connect the radio to the car. If you have this piece I would love to purchase it.

Thank you,
 

Ok 2 things. Does anyone know how to make a convertor for the CD Bus Audio Inputs in the back of the CDX-CA650x? I'm trying to design one so I can hook it up as an Aux In.

2) http://129.33.22.12/release/CDXCA660X.PDF
That's the manual for the 650x/660x. It looks as though the 660x has far better shite than the 650x. Hrmph.

Please email me back about the convertor. Thanks. Also, if you can find just the frequency or bandwidth or voltage inputs or ANYTHING concerning the CD Bus In, it'd be greatly appreciated. Please EMAIL me. Thanks!

Problem:

Solution: Check all your speaker cables, the PROTECTOR error means one of them have a short circuit. Check them all.
If all is right, you IC might be bad and needs a replacement at a Sony authorized servicer.

I have a Sony CDX-CA400 In-dash CD/Receiver. When I try to eject my CD, you can hear it cycle through four times trying to eject, but it doesn't eject the CD. Afterwards, the dreaded:
Error 99 message. Any ideas?

This is my third sony in 6 years. I've had better luck with cheap KRACO's (Now, I'm revealing my age)

I found this page which lists what color wires do what:
http://www.sel.sony.com/SEL/service/caraudio.shtml

My cdx-m850mp has an orange/white wire that is not listed there though. I *think* it's for illumination...
 

I need user manual for sony radio CDX-ca710x. does anyone know where I can get one from? Preferably for free.
 

I have a sony cdx-mp30. When I turn the truck off it beeps three times. If I take the faceplate off it won't beep. Is there anyway to disable this. I do not want to take the faceplate off when I get out of the truck. If you can help please email me at austin@rlights.com.

I have a Sony cdx-m630 and I have no remote but as soon as I hook it up the face says "CODE IN"

Anyone know what this means?

Sony "Protector" mode. I had this same problem, try disconnecting all speakers, and plugging them in one at a time. Use a 5.1 source so all the speakers get a signal. Turn up the volume and see if it goes into the mode. I found that I stripped to much wire and when I screwed the post onto the speaker wire, it was actually touching the case of the receiver, which was grounded with every other component on my system.

There are a number of reasons why not many pros post in this thread. But I'll give two.

1. Sony doesn't exactly make good units. They're mostly in it for the looks.

2. Most professionals in here would never recommend you a Sony Head Unit.

Then again it's everyone's preference. There are better (way better!) Head Units out there. I dumped my Sony HU for a Clarion (Now I got two, DXZ835MP and DB125). Should have gone Clarion from the beginning.

Hey...I know where you people can get sony parts I needed the CDX-CA650 face plate and was able to buy it for $49.95. They have everything it seems. So if you need something for a Sony product go here...http://servicesales.sel.sony.com
 

Unregistered guest
Shelli,
your first mistake was buying a cavalier for your daughter...your second mistake was buying a sony head unit for it....and she's a teen? she wont even look at the speedometer.
On the sony note, I too made that mistake, did anyone figure out how to turn ATT off on a ca650 x, without using the remote? I hate sony.

I am trying to transfer my CDX-CA650X from one car to another and low and behold the wiring is completly different than the car it came out of!! The person that tried hooking it up for me wasnt quit sure what wires went where. Now everytime i turn my car off the deck resets. I also have only one speaker working properly. Can anyone tell me what wires go where? The car its going into (dont laugh) is a Eagle Vista (similar to a Plymouth/Dodge Colt). A few of the wires coming from the car are:Yellow/blue stripe, grey/blue stripe, yellow/red stripe, grey/red stripe, white/blue stripe, Black/blue stripe, then i believe there was a Red, Yellow, maybe blue?? not sure. Can anyone help me?

I have a CDX-CA650X that came with my truck. It doesn't play CD's, just gets a ERROR msg on the screen and EJECTs the CD. I don't ever buy anything made by Sony because there junk doesn't last. Once I get a new player I'll have a face plate for sale.

I have been given a SONY CDX 5181 RDS car radio CD player but the range of wires at the back is a total nightmare to a 74 year old amateur. I have tried to run it up on the bench with a 12 volt supply but there is no power on the unit. It has a yellow and a black lead (negative earth I assume) and a third one in blue leading to the plug but no combination of power to these connectors will run the unit. Also has some warning on the case about a reset switch but I can't locate it. Can anyone help please.

Thare are way to many questions for me to answer on this board but i'll try
1. the beeping is for security (reminds you to remove the face)
2. you can get alot of parts on e-bay
3. the YELLOW wire is your memory
4. if your amp isnt working check your fuses or the wire
5. turning the volume up should turn the att off
6. if it goes in to protect or shuts off you porbobly have a wire crossed


for any more questions just e-mail me @ geoshit4202001@yahoo.com

Can anyone please anyone give me an idea on making the rca inputs recognize or turn on by confusing or voltage triggring a certain pin on the cd changr or xm hookup. (models without a aux function selection in screen displays) Need to hookup sound from dvd,laptop/tv tuner without having to use an fm modulator or worse a wirelss one. (not as clear) This is a very good question probably a brain overload for most. but for all of the people having all the troubles with hookups such as your basic power connections,and speakers get some basic wiring books and study. it doesn not get any easier all head units have required same configuations on wires needed since early 80's. and I also know that instead of trying to make rca inputs on my sony i should probably just replace it with a better head unit.I would rather get some good input on the subject and melt this one down trying before i give in to buying another more expensive HU.thats how i have learned what i know to this day.most of that experiance was not on a simple stereo wiring.I have also had over 4 sonys and kenwood cd and tapedecks never had any trouble out of any of them except that i could not get them to croak.they just got to outdated to stand having them in my vehicles. idea ,,may have alot to do with being mounted secure in the dash to prevent excess vibration and the fact that they were hooked up correctly from the time they were new.or i may have just been lucky and all the others were lemons. note i am not a lucky person that is why my luck has struck me to typing on this 2 bit site i guess.sorry about the novel being so long here thought it might get some attention or maybe even a response on my initial rca bus input issue and acouple of others i noticed . last time messagin unless i get a good respose next one will have to be shorter i am tired of typing. model sonycdx ca810x
And remember a ten year old can hookup a factory bought system amp crossovers etc.and all(and made money doing it) thats why they are storebought. it's strething the factory rules that makes life fun. much older and dumber now however. still waiting for response.

i found manual for my model in an above message i found http://129.33.22.12/release/CDXCA660X.PDF put in 810X in place of 660 and what do you know i found a manual on my HU it says under opttions I probably need a sony AUX selector XA 300A or a source selector XA-3 30 to make rca inputs hookup universaly to any thing. good to know but does anyone know how much these cost,an online site to order special sony parts like . and not sure what diferance is between the two parts. they both sound as if they would work??? better yet still open for anyone that can tell me what these little adapters looklike and what they trigger to activate HU to accept an aux audio. I have many old disc changer pigtails to try and make one unless the part is really reasonable and quick to order
