Radio problem. Has anyone ever seen this on their screen?
OK, I would normally only post in the W215 forum but since there are so many 'like' radios in other Mercedes cars this might have been an issue for someone who has had a similar radio in a different model.
This happened as I just started my 2006 CL600 when the battery was very, very low. The car barely started and I mean barely!
It had been sitting for weeks and the battery always gets low when it sits for an extended length of time.
So, to me this actually looks like bad RAM. I in the past had repaired old video games from the 80's and this is very close to what you would see on the screen of one of those old arcade games with bad RAM.
Anyone seen anything like this before? What you see in this picture actually shows up then goes out after about 2 seconds. Then after about 60 seconds of this cycle the screen will turn to a light shade of pink then off... then light shade of pink again then off and repeat endlessly....
If you hold the POWER button down for about 20 seconds the radio seems to reboot. The MB logo screen comes on as normal then what you see in the picture provided.
If someone has a factory radio at a reasonable price I may be interested in buying it. If not, I will replace everything in the car and go aftermarket as I have in the past when I used to work in a stereo shop. The BMW's and Mercedes are a bitch to do but the crap stock stuff is worthless anyway.
