Default Honda insight 2010 stereo wont turn on.

So,
The stereo just stopped working when i was driving, I changed the fuse and it looked ok but the legs of it were like a little bit burn. I put a new one just in case.

The radio is getting power because the anti theft red light is blinking, at night when the lights are on all the buttons have power...

and yet when the engine is running, nop... no sound, no nothing... I pushed the CD eject and it did it and if i hold the button it actually runs.

Got kids? In other forums there have been reports of very young children putting coins into the CD slot. Interestingly enough, removing the radio, opening it up and taking out the coins often fixed it. Put if it is shorted out bad enough, it may not be worth fixing. There are often used units available on eBay at affordable prices. Otherwise, get a adapter that allows a regular single or double din unit to be installed.

The radio will have two sources of power. It sounds like it is getting the power it gets when the ignition is off. That makes the anti theft light blink and will also allow the cd eject button to work. Probably the clock too? I have the navi unit so I am not familiar with the radios in the LX & EX models.

no,
the actual clock is not showing. that is what has me worried. but if there are two sources, i wonder how can i check the 2nd one. I looked at the fuse list and I only change "accessories" because there was not other one that may be the radio... unless... well i was changing the wrong one.

Please advise again thank you!!!

I think you have all the advise I have. You can:

Check every fuses again using a continuity tester

Remove the radio and have it repaired

Replace it with the same thing from eBay

Replace it with an aftermarket unit. They make plastic surrounds to replace
the factory one that have holes for a regulat car stereo. Metro even makes
A wiring harness adapter the plugs into the factory plug and has leads marked
to attach to wires on the new unit.

It sounds like something shorted out inside (thus the burned fuse) repair or replace.
