Eclipse ESN problem
Posted by sketch4255 on 05-24-2003 10:52 PM:

My Eclipse 5440 is getting an up 7710 and dn 2755 message when I start my car. I was having battery troubles, so I kept reattaching my cables. Now it won't let me enjoy my music. I kept putting in the correct key cd so it's not as though I put in wrong cd 5 times to shut me out. Can anyone help?

Can't help you out with this problem. But I've having an odd problm with my Eclipse CD5423 and ESN -- I followed the procedures to setup and CD Key but never see any indication it is active (supposed to get a flashing ESN light, which I don't and the display is setup to show the flashing ESN light). It goes thru the process as thought I've activated ESN, just no way of really knowing. Rob.

I set up ESN on my 8053, and the left nob flashes red. I am wondering if maybe there is a wire that didn't get hooked up that may be the cause of your deck not flashing?

Thanks, it was my fault, ESN is working, the light is just very dim and I could only see when the car is turned off at night or lower sunlight levels.

Yeah, it is not incredibly bright in daylight. How do you like your deck?

It's a good basic deck, no special bling bling visual affects, just good clean sound with features that actually make sense and easy to use. No complaints.

I have a 5440 and detatched the battery. Now I get "SEC" and "DISK" messages coming up. Am I supposed to have a security CD???? I don't have one as it was a used car I bought. Anyone know what I should do????

Get your paperwork showing that you purchased the car, and take that to the local eclipse dealer. If they may unlock the deck if they can confirm that you are the rightful owner of the deck. If the deck is too old, it may have to be sent into Eclipse to be unlocked. You can call Eclipse and ask them as well. 800-233-2216(not open on weekends).

TO sketch4255, Look in the manual, there's a page in there that'll tell you how to get 5 more tries out of it. Beyond that you're stuck sending it in. As far as I know, dealers can't clear out the key CD, only the manufact. can.

On the newer decks, the dealers can get a rolling code from Eclipse to unlock the deck. Older models had to be sent in to Eclipse. I am not sure if the dealer can unlock the 5440.
