ok, i have a good one for you all. i have an '02 odyssey with the dvd system. about a week ago my radio decided to short circuit and smoke. i contacted the dealer and they said that it was not a common issue. now when they sent it out to a repair shop, they told me that someone had to have stuck a penny or something in it. uhm, no...noone has ever put anything like that in it. has anyone had it happen, or even heard of anyone else happening to them? a brand new replacement radio is $700. but of course, i will not be doing that, so i guess i will go aftermarket for a standard cd player, all the while losing my entertainment system. any info concerning this problem would be appreciated. thank you!

Have you tried looking for a used OEM radio unit?

If they don't send the anti-theft cide with the radio shoot me a PM with the serial number off the radio and i should be able to get the code for you.
