I bought my C280 in may and Just recently had the radio deck fail i think? I was driving along and all of a sudden my sound/music just stopped. I then hit a small bump on a bridge and it started working again. Pulled into the bank, shut the car off, and ever since I have no sound, no fuzz, hum, crackels nothing. The deck still lights up and functions it appears, however all the functions light up on the screen as well the AUD, and other options. I have talked to a few guys and they all said its either a deck or a loose wire somewhere is the problem.
We have had alot of rain in Minnesota the past few weeks, and the car as of right now sits outside
till dad's car gets put away. So not sure if that could be a problem or not. I have wiggled all the wires, tapped on all connections, speakers, and amps lightly with nothing changing. I even disconnected the speakers and one by one tested them to see if one of them would mess up the the whole system. After reading post, and checking with pro.s in this industry and even with Mercedes One Care 800 number nothing has solved the problem.
So that leaves me with one option. Replacing the deck, I would like to keep it stock if i can, I have a few decks i'm in the process of getting prices on, now for the help that I need. How do I remove the current deck? I have removed the storage bin so now I can get my hand up behind the radio and feel all the wires and connectors, and removed 2 screws, so now the whole center sections wiggles back and fourth, I havn't got a clue what the next step is to removing that.
Any idea's on what to do on any of the problems I have mentioned?
