    Hi guys,

    Simple problem... cant find a post about it. I was driving along, switching radio frequencies, as suddenly my radio says "Service" (there was some word that came before it, but didnt catch it) and now its stuck on "SERVICE". Changing stations works, changing CDs works, changing songs works, basically, everything seems to work... except it doesnt display ANYTHING except "SERVICE". I already tried to disconnect it from the battery, this did not seem to help (normally it asks me to enter the code again)

    This is a W210 320 CDI 1999 model with 6CD changer op optics. Car is fine otherwise.

    Any ideas? Should I disconnect it longer? Or is it a fault outside the radio?

    Thanks :)
    W

    You have two fuses,,one for the using the radio and the other for the memory back up,,both must be removed before it can re set

    Okay :)

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the response. Any clues on WHY it happened?

    Regards, W
