I bought this stereo and installed it on Saturday. It worked once - I played a CD and checked that all the speakers were working. I then left the car, and since then it has not turned on. I have disconnected it, reconnected it, and pressed the reset button - the CD loading mechanism makes a noise (so it must still have power), and then when I attach the face, it doesn't turn on. The fuse looks intact. I have tried pressing the power (off/source) button but nothing happens. It will load and eject a CD, but it won't play it, and the screen stays dead.

Anyone have any idea why it's not working? Am I being thick, or is it a dud? It was refurbished off eBay.

Thanks for any help.

It sounds to me like the unit is not getting power on the (red) accessory wire. This will have +12v on it when they key is in the ignition, so the unit knows when to power on. It takes its regular power from the yellow wire.

Make sure you have connected everything properly, check if the red wire has +12 on it.
