95 740i Radio sound problems
Radio stopped working after going over a bump on the freeway last summer.
Could never resolve the problem since.
I played with all the settings on MID, cassette and DSP to no avail.
You can hear the music from radio or cassette if you put your ear beside the speaker but it is very faint.
CD player works well and sound good without any problems.
I decided to take apart the Philips amp and cassette radio
and resoldered all the cold joints but this did not help at all.
I also checked to see if the phone mute was ON
but it was not although the phone is not in service.
I also happened to punch in Function 5 and now it is Locked
and I don't know the 3 digit code to unlock it.
I realize the amp is a two channel DSP unit (94 Philips unit),
however, If the CD player works than 1 channel should be good
and possibly the other channel which handles the radio & cassette has failed.
Anyone can lead me on how to test this;
or any help or direction on how to resolve the faint radio sound problem.
Also looking for help on how to unlock the phone without knowing the PIN number (it bothers me that it is locked even though I don't use ithe phone).
Thanks in advance.
