Can anyone shed some light on this????

My stereo just stopped working today?? All the fuses are ok and I have unplugged the unit and plugged it back in again but still it's dead. Even If I turn my lights on the unit doesn't light up. I also checked that its getting power via a test light...all ok?? I guess it's the head unit but has anyone had one of these repaired because they are not cheap :(

Have you checked both live inputs?

 

If you have power to both , then its worth taking it apart to see if one of the power connections has failed , you may be able to just re-solder them .

A electronics shop will be cheaper than replacing.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have been thinking about taking it apart and seeing if I can fix it myself or getting a shop to do it for me. I've managed to buy one from eBay today for £200 so about £350 cheaper than any others I've seen. I will get mine fixed and see what I can get for it. I have a feeling someone would probably buy it in its faulty state because of how much these things cost from new.....I guess everything can be fixed.

Fitted my new stereo / sat nav and it works great other than the voice control. If I press the button on the top of the stalk next to the steering wheel the screen changes but I don't hear the ladies voice asking me for options and basically it doesn't do anything. Does this sound like I need to reset the system by disconnecting the battery? Hope I've explained the problem properly. 

 

Thanks.

I have a similar problem but ive not found the problem so far. My unit eventually drained the battery, a new 71 AH battery, after about three days of the car not being used. As far as i understand the problem could be in the head unit itself ot the GPS receiver or the radio antenna or even the ECU. If you learn anything please let me know.

I've never solved the problem with the voice control but my head unit works perfect, I do miss the voice control.
