    hmm... you could have a blown a fuse (it might be that, or something else) inside the deck. some wierd shit like that happened to mine before, i had music, but no display, none of the buttons worked, but it still played music.

    or you might've just hooked it up wrong, or didn't hook up a wire, or a bad connection or something.

    i'm guessing fuse.. .. mine did something similar.. it was acting as if the ignition wasn't on. all i could do was insert/eject the cd and check the time on mine..

    check the fuse box and the deck fuses

    If you are getting power etc. than it may require a Security Disc that the person you got it from has.

    My Eclipse deck does that exact same thing until you put in the security CD in. ASsk the person you got the deck from for it, but first double check the manual to see if the security is similar to what I have explained.

    I think every one I know has learned that Sony CD Players suck, the hard way.

    it sounds like the ignition wire is not proper. if a fuse was blown, absolutely nothing would or should work on the deck. with it taking and spitting the disk, that means it's getting power. but not lighting up and playing is more than likely leaving the ignition wire to blame.

    it's the wire that sends a signal from the vehicles key turn to the deck to turn on or off. usually it's the red one, but some makes are yellow. either way, it's one of these two.

    hachiroku is right, same problem happened with a friend of mine, deck gets temporary power just to eject and take in cd;s etc. The solution was the ignition wire, which turns on the deck when the key is turned
