Volvo 850 SC 710 cassette adapter not working

Post by bryanpeaz » Mon Dec 02, 2019 4:10 pm

So I bought a cassette adapter (they’re junk i know) for my 97 850 and there’s a constant humming noise and plugging in my phone offers no resolve. It’s an SC 710 radio which I know were the cheaper ones but I’m out of ideas for playing music. Any advice?
