    Sony Hedunit + Sony iPod adaptor problem

    I bought the wife a Sony iPod adaptor for Christmas.

    Been to fit it today, and have a problem.

    The headunit it a Sony CDX-F5550 and the iPod adaptor is a Sony XA-110IP.

    When it's all plugged in as it should be the headunit plays for about 6 seconds then it looks like it powers off, restarts and carrys on playing for 6 seconds etc. etc.

    It won't let me select the iPod as the source, but the iPod has the Xplod logo on the screen.

    As for compatability between the Headunit and Adaptor, the adaptor states that it's compatible with all headunits from October 2005 (except a few, none are mine).

    Now i realise the CDX-F5550 was made slightly earlier than that, but before buying it i checked on the net and found package deals for both units i have together, and in the CDX-F5550 spec it states it's iPod compatable through an external device.

    I bought the adaptor in November off eBay from seller ICECLEAROUT, and my PayPal payment went to CarElectronics, so i assume they're the same (maybe StevesAstra can confirm). So could hopefully get it swapped (or try another unit)

    Has anyone else fitted these two units together? or had any issues fitting an iPod adaptor to a Sony Headunit.

    No, not us at all mate, ICECLEAROUT are car audio centre (inphase) and i didn't realise they had set there name up as car electronics!!!!!

    I will soon be sorting that out as it aint on they are trading with car electronics as there paypal payment name as problems like this will look crap against us.

    Professionally i can't comment on their business ethics or authenticity of their stock however i would say to see if there is a way of telling if your model has a "uk" serial number on it.

    Steve I've just double checked and the Payment definatly went to the account name CarElectronics, which as you say, is a little naughty.

    If you need any evidence/details etc, i'm quite happy to print out the transaction etc. to help.

    I'm in Notts tomorrow, i'll pop in to CEL. Will you be at work.

    Just PM'd you mate as the post has no relevance to the compatibility of the part.

    ALSO JUST TO CLARIFY THAT THE COMPANY I WORK FOR CAR ELECTRONICS LTD IS IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM CONNECTED TO OR PART OF THE EBAY SHOP ICECLEAROUT, OR ITS PARENT CAR AUDIO CENTRE

    Didn't get chance to pop into CEL today.

    I've contacted the seller through eBay, and told him of the problem and said i'd prefer to travel to him to sort it.

    I'm interested to see where he says he is based at.

    Well judging from the ebay site they use a national phone number (0870) and also have an (020) number which IIRC is based down towards London?

    Maybe its the CAC HQ or something like that.

    Well they've replied and said my headunit isn't compatable with the unit.

    I sent them the link for the package deal.

    The Sony site is no help at all.
