sony cd changer help

Hi all,

Firstly I would like to say hi as a newbie and look forward to getting involved in this forum. I have just purchased my first boxster 2.5 1999 and apart from loving every minute i spend in it am looking for things to add / upgrade. I today purchased off Ebay a Sony CDX-656 CD changer (10 disc) to work with the factory becker CDR-22 head unit. The cabling from the back of the stereo to the CD changer was already in place. The changer powers up but after reading theinstructions all I require to do is press the "s" button and I should find the CD changer. No luck with this though. I have removed the stereo and checked the cabling to the rear and theCD changer cable is present in the "C2 slot" with a green plug as per other forum notes. Can anybody tell me how I can get this working?? www.add a changer.co.uk sell the cable and CD changer and say on thrie site it shoud just plug in and work. Read somewhere else the Becker headunit needs a firmware upgrade.

Anybody heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp???

If you've put disks in the cartridge and installed it and lso cycled through all the options by using the S button then it might be a bad cable.

I'd also suggest you check the Becker Board but it seems to be down at the moment.
