Volvo C70 Audio System Problems

    Not sure what you mean. The CD changer is built into the SC901. Do you mean the cassette/magazine that holds the actual CD's? :confuse:

    Yes I mean the cassette magazine that holds the CD's..

    Ok, you've got several options:

    Your friendly Volvo dealer would be the first choice. Pricey, but should be quick and easy.

    Good ole Ebay

    The unit is made by Alpine so their magazines work too. You're in luck. There's one on Ebay now as a buy it now for $20 plus $7 s&h. http://cgi.ebay.com/ALPINE-4909-COLOR-CODE-CD-MAGAZINE-FOR-3D-SHUTTLE-3-CDS_W0QQ- - itemZ220398214256QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCar_Audio_In_Dash_Receivers?hash=item2203982- - 14256&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240- - %3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50#ebayphotohosting

    $27 isn't too bad, considering the last time I priced them at my dealer, years ago, they were around $45.

    Might try Craigslist or Best Buy, etc. Good Hunting.

    Great Thanks alot... Gonna grab it now... What a great service this is! :)

    You're welcome. Since the picture shows 3, maybe you could get all 3 at the same price and save on shipping.

    yeah I saw the pic so not sure if all three are included but I did order it... This issue has been bugging me for a month:)

    I have the 2005 C70 with the SC-901 Audio System. I had to change the battery and when I did, the AM radio tuner came back showing "MW" with AM frequencies hitting odd numbers (like 846 instead of 850). Stations are all slightly off. Anybody know how to set this back to US standard?

    I have the same issue

    Try this:

    A - Settings for individual markets
    Settings for individual markets are usually adjusted in the factory or at the retailer. If you need to change this setting: switch off the radio; hold down preset button 5 (B); switch on the radio (A) and press preset button 5 again until the relevant market (US, AUS or EU) appears.

    How are the magazines working out? Did you receive one or three?
  • bmyers1bmyers1 Posts: 8
    The magazines are working great... I actually received 3 of them..

    Thanks for the advice!

  • bmyers1bmyers1 Posts: 8
    The settings you recommended worked perfectly!

    Thank You Very Much!
  • Three years later, I finally have an integrated iPod solution for my 2006 C70.

    It was challenging, but the team at Al & Ed's on La Cienega in Los Angeles patiently researched options, examined the factory audio system, spoke with vehicle and audio specialists and selected the right combination of cables and software. I believe they are the only ones to date who have been able to successfully complete this type of iPod connection with the '06 C70.

    I'm grateful not to have an FM modulator, but an integrated solution that offers superior sound clarity with my Dynaudio system.

    For fellow '06 C70 owners - I highly recommend working with the great team at Al & Ed's.
  • Great news !! please could you give us more information? how does it work? does it need only cables and software? is it integrated with the wheel? does it charge the ipod? could it work with iphone?
    Thanks in advance.

    My cd magazine is jammed (cd-3). Is there a way for me to pull the magazine out?
  • k1orcak1orca Posts: 2
    there is a raised area in the center of my 2007 volvo c70's upper dash. it somehow was raised and appears to be a dvd screen. i cannot close it and don't know where the switch is. it happened after the car washers finished w/the car. appreciate help. also, the right side door handle appears to have a spring or something broken - it won't open the door - and when pulled just pulls out without any resistance. help? thanks so much. new car to me...looked in the manual and couldn't find anything.
  • I have the same problem--CD magazine jammed. Have you found a solution?
