My car stereo has been acting up the past few days.

I was playing some audio CD's (originals, not copies) and they played fine, all of a sudden, the CD that had been working started playing tracks and then muting for 10 or 20 seconds and the playing the rest of the song for another few seconds then muting again for all of the tracks.

I checked the CD, works fine. I ripped the CD and put the mp3 on an SD card hoping the problem would go away, but still, it played the tracks and suddenly went quiet a few seconds in, but carried on playing, then the sound came back and went away again e.t.c

Now, not only the CD that the problem originated on, but any music played from CD or SD card does it.

Radio works fine.

Any ideas??

its does it all the time regardless of volume

Standard speakers through standard car wiring.

I have a pretty shit amp and sub, but has been and does work fine.

Output channels on the head unit have been snipped & taped for a few months, but it's played CD's and MP3's off SD cards fine.

It does it from cold and theres no change after its been on a while.

Like I said, radio works fine, Audio on the TV also works fine.

It does have 2 audio input channels, but they have been snipped and taped for months too.

Just external media thats causing it think

well was going to suggest buying a very cheap 4 channel amp to power the rest of the speakers, but aint gonna work if there is now sound even through the un amped channel (seams strange tho that ths channel also cuts out). tbh i would cost more for someone to fix than it would to buy a new one, as ive said it sounds like the internal amp in the unit has been fried (probs due to there not being an option to turn off the unused channels) you could try and take it to sound waves or the place in bebington(forgot the name tho) but that wont be cheap at all!
