Problem with compact dic player

So awhile ago the unit came detached from our spa, and not knowing how it hooked back on, I somehow got it to continue working, but now, I can't get it to work at all. The entire unit came off, and now, even properly securing it into position, doesnt work. It doesnt get any kind of power.

How to remove Panasonic cq-c1301u unit from car

This is an interesting question. As to the fact that you didn't mention what kind of car you have, I can't give you exact instructions, but I can give you approximate instructions. Read all Instructions b4 you do anything and detach battery b4 working on system!!!!!!
1. Most car's require you to remove a dashboard panel, of not the whole thing. (on a side note, the panel on my jeep that has to be removed just pops out).
2. Next you need to unscrew the adapter kit from the car. A lot of older cars put Double DIN headunits into their cars, These are the larger sized headunits. Most after-market systems require a plastic adapter to allow them to fit into the larger space. As long as your new unit is the same size as the older unit, this piece can be reused.
3. Then you must remove the old headunit from the adapter. Most are either screwed in or have pressure pins that hold it in place. Either unscrew or carefully push down the pressure pins until you can remove the old headunit.
4. If you have already purchased the wiring kit, if necessary, then continue onto next step, otherwise purchase appropriate wiring kit for your headunit and car. Do not open wiring kit until you are ready to hook up your new headunit!!!!
5. Find new wiring kit, detach old wiring kit, and hook up new wiring kit according to included instructions. For best reliability, I recommend using wire nuts as electrical tape isn't as relaible and can come apart after a while. If you need to save space and can't use wire nuts, I recommend liquid electrical tape. Let this dry before you go any further.
6. Attach new headunit to adapter and then attach wiring kit to back of the headunit. Make sure to attach radio cord to back of headunit. Push adapter and headunit back into place, adjusting wires as necessary. Screw adapter back into place.
7. Re-attach dash panel back to car, reattaching screws where and if necessary and reattach battery. Power up car and test system.
8. Listen away.

If you cannot get this to work, most places like Best Buys and Circuit City have professionals that have the necessary parts and expertise to exchange headunits in cars and can do this for a small fee. Just replacing a headunit should be relatively cheep. Adding other components as well would be more expensive.

My Phase Linear UV8 and my Ipod

I wasn't able to find the manual for your Head unit. But, if you have jlink capability with your UV8 and you have an ipod jlink cable, you should just be able to plug the cable in. Then hook up your ipod and the head unit should recognize it when you try to select "ipod" for your source. I wish I could offer more info but like I said I wasn't able to see the manual and I am basing my answer off of what it takes for Kenwood headunits which use a similar "bus" type cable like your jlink. I hope I could help. Let me know if you need furthur assistance. I would happily help.

Pioneer DEH 1700 not working now

I'm guessing that you wired the 2 units together including the speakers? the 2 units may be of different potentials and can't be wired together like that...they would need diodes or a relay to isolate one from another.. first you need to see if you toasted each of these by separating the wiring and trying them separately...just a thought

Negative; there is no way other than maybe an RF modulator to hook uup an iPod or other device to this head unit. For more information on this head unit follow this link:

PCD120U volume issue

i think I know what your problem is ... if you hold down the menu/select button ( the button between the volume buttons) there will be a volume option it'll say P --- volume. I think that sets a default volume that the cd player will always reset to once the cd player is turned off then on again.

How to detach face of lanzar stereo?

Here is a link to the owner's manual: (Note that the "DCP release button" is the upper-leftmost button on the unit.) On page E-5, it says: 2.DETACHABLE CONTROL PANEL (D.C.P.) Removing The Detachable Control Panel (D.C.P.). 1. Turn the power off 2. Press the D.C.P. release button 3. Remove the D.C.P. Attaching the DCP CAUTION 1. Attach the panel at the right side first, with point B on the main unit touching point A on the D.C.P. (As shown on the digram). 2. Then press the left side of D.C.P. onto the main unit until a ?click? sound is heard. DO NOT insert the D.C.P from the left side. Doing so may damage it. The D.C.P can easily be damaged by shocks. After removing it, place it in a protective case and be careful not to drop it or subject it to strong shocks. When the release button is pressed and the D.C.P is unlocked, the car's vibrations may cause it to fall. To prevent damage to the D.C.P, always store it in a protective case after detaching it. The rear connector that connects the main unit and the D.C.P is an extremely important part. Be careful not to damage it by pressing on it with fingernails, pens, screwdrivers, etc. Note: If the D.C.P is dirty, wipe off the dirt with soft, dry cloth only. And use a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol to clean the socket on the Socket back of the D.C.P.

My CD is stuck in my CD player

Some CD/DVD units have a manual opening mechanism, it looks like a small hole on the front of the unit, try using a needle or a metal rod that fits by inserting it into the hole and pushing it should open the unit in case it got stuck somehow. If afterwards it continues to work then all's good else you'll have to bring it to a workshop.
