fixed no sound from radio

Originally when i bought my very used slk, the radio would work but oddly would not turn off when i exited the car. A few months ago, it stopped putting out any sound. The radio appeared to be working, but no sound. After searching the forums, i came to the conclusion that it was the amp or a fiber optic issue. Checked all of the fiber optics and was able to get a replacement amp at the junk yard. Neither fixed the problem. I was a bit perplexed. At this point, I noticed one other thing. The radio would not pick up any stations. The scan feature would just continuously run through the stations. There were no apparent antenna connection issues. As a last resort, I decided to swap the radio in from my 2000 CLK and see if it worked. Bingo! everything works perfectly, it even turns off when i turn the key off. I noticed a spot of corrosion about the size of a quarter on the old unit, so it must have gotten wet at some point. Hope this helps someone...
