Default Radio freezing up

Hey guys,

The other day, my radio froze. It lights up, but I can't do anything with it. Only the on/off button works. None of the knobs or buttons do anything. No sound, nothing. It won't work in tape, radio or CD mode. I pulled fuse 42 and left it out overnight. I plugged it back in the following morning and it worked for a few minutes before freezing up again. Any ideas?

This is the stock Monsoon radio in my mark 4 Jetta. Forgot to mention that in the op.

Sounds like a new or new to you radio. Take a pic of the Vin if you get it from the junkyard.

There's another fuse in the back of the radio.
If you do pull the radio to get to it you could also unplug the radio for several minutes.
Real long shot.

Soooooo it randomly started working again. I'll take it as an early toll of the death bell. I'll probably just pick up another unit when it gives up the ghost for good.

Thanks guys!

I searched for a clearance deal for years before I found a Kenwood with navigation and an optional Delirious satellite option in clearance at Best Buy.
It's a world of difference from the Monsoon.
