The Sony Xplod CDX-CA650X is a CD player and FM radio designed to be used in cars, trucks and other automobiles. It was manufactured in 2001 and is easy to use. It runs off the car's battery, which means it does not have to be charged or have its own batteries replaced; this is standard for most head units.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press "open" when the ignition and Sony Xplod are both turned off. Turn the Sony Xplod toward you and press the "reset" button located directly beneath it.You only need to do this if the battery has recently been replaced or this is the first time you are using the Sony Xplod.

  2. 2

    Reattach the Sony Xplod by putting the hole on the head unit onto its corresponding spindle and pushing in.

  3. 3

    Press "open" and insert a CD with the printed side facing up. It will start playing automatically.

  4. 4

    Press the "Off" button to stop the CD. Press the arrow keys to cycle through tracks; hold down the arrow keys to cycle within tracks.

  5. 5

    Press "shuf" to play the songs on your CD in a random order.

  6. 6

    Press the arrows on either side of the "Menu" button until the term "Nameedit" appears. You can then enter up to eight characters by using the arrow keys on either side of the "menu" button.

  7. 7

    Press "source" until the radio comes on to listen to the radio. Press "mode" to change the band from FM to AM or vice versa.

  8. 8

    Press the arrows you used to label your CDs to have the Sony Xplod browse for radio stations. Once you hear a beep, the station is automatically stored in the Sony Xplod for you to browse using the arrow keys.
