Not working "at all"...

Yesterday I was trying to fix this litle storage thing under my radio and while removing it I also disconected my radio unit . When finished I reconected but nothing seemed to be working . Its not a power loss cause when I press the "display" button it shows the time it seems to be "on" ... The other task it does is when opening to insert a cd it does, its just fine ... and eject it .. -but not play it . The tuner is also "dead" . Generally is not working . It has a reset button, which i presed but only resets the display time ... How am I going to find out whats happened ? The troubleshouting section of the instructions say that : when "the unit does not work at all" then "the built-in microcomputer may function incorrectly due to noise etc." And the cure is to reset ... But no ..!

Re: Not working "at all"...

I have an eclipse ecd414 cd stereo. It has been out of my vehicle for several years. Now I have given it to my Grandson but I can't find the security disk. What can I do to get around this?

Re: Not working "at all"...

I had similar problem and found out I had blown a fuse when connecting the wire.

So I suggest you check your fuses first, if it is burnt verify your wire connection, correct as necessary and replace your fuse. This has fixed the same issue you all had described above (Display turns on and CD eject works but no power).

Another way to test/diagnose the problem is connect your old stereo; if fuse is burnt you should get no power to your stereo. Hope it helps

Does it have a remote? if it does, there should be "PWR" button. try that, it seems to me that you head deck is in clock mode. cheers.

I put the face back on my radio this morning,it displayed hp error 68 disconect


Error 68 means it is trying to connect to a bluetooth enabled cell phone. You should turn off the blue tooth pairing options under the radio options. Go through the menu and you should find it.

I hope this helps

Radio display says protect. does not emit sound.

Sounds like you have either a short in your speaker wire somewhere, wires touching in the back of the unit or a short inside the stereo itself... Try pulling the radio out and unhooking all of your speakers...Turn unit back on after all speakers are disconected...If unit still shows protect, then radio is bad...If it doesnt, power off and hook up speakers one by one and power it back on till it shows protect again....When it does, the last speaker wire you hooked up has either a crossed wire or the speaker is bad...

Kenwood KDC-138: Removed Old stereo, installed new KDC-138, I'm getting power to the plug that plugs into the back of the unit & fuse is good. I've tried pushing the reset button. Nothing comes up on...

do you have power at both supplys on the wire harness?( red and yellow) red wire will have power with the key on. Also make sure your ground is hooked up right.

My cd player will not work in 2005 my chrysler 300 the radio works but the cd player wont work whats wrong

Your chrysler 300 has a factory amplifier built in to the system. Seems you have connected the radios antenna turn on wire (usually solid blue) to the factory amp turn on wire. You must disconect the radios antenna turn on wire and connect the blue wire with a white stripe to the factory amp turn on wire. The problem with the blue antenna turn on wire is that when you are switching from radio to cd the unit is shutting off power on that wire(because it thinks its trying to lower a power antenna) Once the correct blue/white wire is connected the factory amp will stay on wether its am/fm or cd. Hope this helped

CD player wont work on my DEH-1900MP

Has the humidity ruined the unit?  Is it getting power?  If you have a yacht you can definitely afford a replacement.  They make splash covers and marine quality radios.  Try ebay.

Won't switch to tuner

Sounds like the source button is not working properly. I have seen this type of problem caused by a crack in the display board. It can also be a bad contact on the source button.
Could be several other things as well, but most of the time it is something like a cracked board.
You can also try resetting the unit, look to see if there is a very small pin hole sized button on the display someplace, if so, use a paperclip or a toothpick, ect. to depress that switch. you might get lucky and the micro just needs to be reset. Sometimes you can reset a unit by disconecting the power wires for a few seconds, or just unplug the harness in the back for a short time.

Hope this helps

No sound from unit and everything is wired and hooked up properly tred every possible solution maybe i got a dud ???

Try pressinf the reset button (small black/grey one) that you would need a pencil to do,

Also kenwoods have a cup built in the audio ic to disconect sould if wires are touching together, although you may have it wired right a blown speaker will cause this problem, if thid did happen you would have to press the reset button to get sound after the problem was fixed, if none of this helps, i would sugest relpacing the audio IC'

Aiwa CDC-MA01 can't change station

same thing, some of the buttons on the bottom flip panel work, the important ones do not. select is the most important one that does not function. I opened the unit up and checked all the connections, the ribbon cable seemed to be connecting, i can only conclude it is chip thing, as the switches under buttons rang the bell on my continuity tester. it is very easy to open up and put back to together.
