My cd receiver started slowing dying on me two weeks ago. At first, some of the LEDs went out. Then sometimes the volume would not work. Now it's got to the point where all the LEDs are off and none of the functions work. It just stays at the same volume on the same radio station...thank god I didn't have my radio turned too high before the receiver died.

My questions is...is there a simple fix for my cd receiver, or is it dead? Any suggestions on good places to get it repaired or a new install in the Los Angeles area? Thanks for the help...

Personally, I would check fuses in the fuse block and also on the radio's wiring harness if applicable. Then move on to checking all wire connections, especially the ground connection. This will pretty much cover the easy troubleshooting you can do; the rest would be internal and not as easy to diagnose/fix. Is the head unit still under warranty?

The head is a year out of warranty. I'm embarassed to say...i know jack sh!t about cars and car stereos. I know where the fuse box is and that's about it. :eek:

I concur with this; they have nice car audio install guides too... Some are free for the taking without any purchase required. (That's the way it used to be at least)
