Question about Farenheit MD-1040CMX Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Loud humming sound

I am about to purchase a car that has an aftermarket MD-1040CMX Car DVD Player installed. When opening and closing the doors to the car, the video makes a weird, loud, humming noise. The video player works fine and the dealership indicated to me that the company that installed this unit stated that the wretched sound that it makes when opening and closing the doors to the car is normal. I can't imagine that a company would make an item that would make a sound like this.

Is this normal for a unit like this? Could there be a worng connection? I would appreciate any answers. Thanks, Bill - New York

Humming sound when Sony DVD player is turned on. The player is attached to a TV. The sound continues when a DVD movie is played.. The intensity of the humming changes with changes in the Video.


Is the humming just from the power on or is it when the DVD is spinning some media will spin with a loud humming noise something to do with the balance similar to an unbalanced car wheel, just a lot quiter. Burn the DVD using ImageBurn create an ISO and reburn.

If it hums without the DVD spinning it is probably the transformer on the PSU on it way out this can happen at any time it is caused by the voltage step down coil becoming damaged in some way and the lower voltage provided causes the noise.

If this is the case I suggest a new PSU or at least a new Transformer.

BE MORE SPECIFIC!

Why do you need to trace them? Is it a stock amp? If you know where the amp is....then tracing the wiring is a cinch....

The amp has to be powered, so there's most likely a power wire from your battery. If it's a stock amp, it's powered from behind your cd player. And be more specific, what speakers? There's like what, six?

They all go to one spot man, right behind the cd player.

What's spiking? The sound? As in it's loud, quiet, loud, quiet, loud? You might have a bad ground somewhere, so check grounds. Those are easy to find, behind the deck the ground is black. If it's an aftermarket amp, then the ground is going to be close by to it. It's most likely screwed to the steel part of your car.

It could be your deck to, it might have just got randomly defective. You do have a 96 after all.

If it's an aftermarket cd player...check your wiring harness. You have to cut the wires from the car to tie them into the harness for your cd player, so jiggle those around to see if you can hear a difference.

No Sound!


You probably have a connector up inside the housing that is loose. Or the dealer changed the radio out and did not wire up the sound. Either way the sound comes from a circuit board up in the DVD player itself. You need to unscrew it from the ceiling and look for wiring clues. May be as simple as plugging it into the appropriate connector.

No audio


FM station 88.1 or similar. Set radio to scan while dvd is playing. When the correct frequency is reached, you'll hear sound.
