Have you set the Power IC to Off? Here is a link to the User Manual:

Press Menu to select Setup, then Mode, then Rewd or Ffwd to move Left or Right to Power IC, then use the volume control to select Power IC On.
Hope this works

SP OFF mode?

if you turned it on without speakers hooked to it you may have blown the speaker output amps or if the end of the amp remote wire touched a ground you may have burned a trace on the board did you here it play at the pawn shop? or did it just light up? sometimes the people at the pawn shop think if the unit lights up it is working and sometimes they check them is just hook power to them without speakers if so this can blow the speaker output I would take it back to the pawn shop

Kenwood kdc-x769.everything works on the deck just fine other than no sound at all-not even static. did a full and proper install into vehicle and cant get anything to come through the speakers-any help or...

you may want to check and make sure none of the speaker wires or speaker terminals are shorting out. it just takes one shorted speaker or speaker wire to shut off the entire audio.

Need to know what is the easiest way to convert a

It is possible but its going to take some patient custom work. You basically have to remove the entire stereo system out of your 93 Cam and then prewire the 93 to prepare the install of the 5 speaker bose system.

You have to modify the space for the bose speakers from the 96. You have to make sure that when you install the system that the speakers are in-phase meaning that they are not going to sound with the woofers sucking in but pushing out like they have to, to get you best sound, you then have to find a location for your 5 speaker Bose Amplifier eaither under one of your seats if the space is available or somewhere in your hatch area, trunk. Make sure that you use the correct Gauge wires for the power connections, they shouldnt be anymore than 12 Gauge in most cases. Do not try to power the Bose speakers with another amp or you will blow the speakers instantly. I cant tell you how to modify or customize all your work to make this happen, this is something that only I could do if I was present with the vehicle, this is something you have to know how to do or get an installer to do it, the problem is that most stereo shops will not do that type of work, most places will eaither tell you to take a hike or they will throw you an outrageous price to do the job just to scare you away and get rid of you.

Good luck my friend and let me know what happens.

Cant get the front speakers to work. The stock tweeters work but the stock door speakers don't on a 95 honda prelude

if you have a bose system, then you have mini amps connected to each speaker, my suggestion would be to take the speakers out and look at them,
see if there is corrosion. or anything.

my other question is did you just install a new stereo in your car or did these speakers go out a while ago on your own?

So, I looked up the highest rated car installation business in Dallas, and had them install this unit. After installation, the unit worked GREAT, and with the new speakers, I was flabergasted(yeah, I said...

No!. If you disconnect it from power, you need the code to turn it back on. Check your manual before doing anything! that's the #2 problem reported on this site!. Chances are good that you have a bad wire at a door, or a bad speaker. Take it to the installing shop, they warranty their work. Hope this helps.

Installing a pioneer home theatre dvd/speaker system.

On page 36 of the Pioneer users manual, it describes how to set your audio for HDMI interconnect. Follow the directions, and hopefully it will work. You can down load the manual from the Pioneer web site. Google "speaker system HTZ171 DVD". Click on the Pioneer site for your system and look for the download on the right side of page.
I hope this was helpful...

2000 mustang convertable amp problems

Are you sure the amplifiers are trashed? Have you checked the fuses? A reputable car audio shop could help for a fee of course, but it may be worth the price. It's odd that (all) the amps would malfuntion simultaniously unless someone unqualified messed with the wiring or the radio has a defective trigger wire (turns the amps on). You'll be sadly disapointed with any new radio without the factory amps, especially with the convertable ... I strongly suggest getting the amps (the factory system) working again.

No sound

you simply have a speaker shorting in your car. Either an old speaker with a bad voice coil (short) or a speaker who's contact(s) are touching metal. This type of short or grounding will cause the internal audio amplifier to shut off to protect the radio's output circuit. To diagnose which speaker is the culprit, you'll need to disconnect all speaker leads from the radio and one by one re-connect them until the output shuts down again. The safe way to check is with a voltmeter. If you connect one side of your voltmeter to ground and test each speaker wire lead for continuity, you'll hear an audible "beep" whe you find the grounded wire/contact. A professional car audio shop can diagnose this for you if you're still having difficulty. Hope this information was helpful.

Subwoofer instalation

Even if your JVC doesn't have outputs for a subwoofer you can hook it up with the a speaker wire to RCA converter. You just spice your rear speaker wires to this device then connect RCA's to your amp. I've used them before... works great.
