No sound new install - JVC Car Audio & Video

    I was not sure how this site works, so I didnt go too far into it. Here is the details.



    I have a 1990 Mark VII Lincoln. It had a Clarion aftermarket radio in it that I am replacing. There was a factory amp in the trunk, but that was bypassed by the person who installed the Clarion. There is a grey harness with the 8 speaker wires that go from the radio to the amp. This harness has had the connector cut off and the 8 wires connected to the Clarion harness. Then the amp output harness has been cut and the wires spliced to the input wires...in the trunk. No schematic with Clarion or the Lincoln. This set up used to work but the radio was cutting out at will. I think an internal problem.



    I am installing a JVC KD-G340. The Clarion and JVC connectors are different. The wires are mostly the same colors. I spliced like colors together and plugged the JVC in. I see the face plate come on, it scans for stations and finds them. I get no sound from speakers. I get a pop when the radio is turned on. That is it.



    I have new speakers I plan to install. I hooked one up to the harness that came with the radio. I get no sound there either...immediately out of the radio.



    Thanks for any help.

More information would be required to help you with this problem properly. If you are using an amplifier and have no sound from it, you may just have the remote turn on of the amplifier not connected. The radio should have a blue wire coming from it and that would be the wire that goes to the amplifier to turn it on when the radio is turned on. If the radio has no sound coming from the speakers connected directly to the radio, you may have a bad speaker, bad speaker wire, or even have the speakers connected wrong.

If you can please give me more information about the install, like what model radio, what type of amplifier, how you have connected the wiring, how many speakers and what the speakers are connected to (an amp or the radio), I can help you figure out the problem. But please understand, since I am not there to look at your install, I can not know how you have connected everything. Are you using a universal wiring harness to connect to the factory harness and your radio? Have you added extra speakers? What wires have you connected to the speakers? If you have an amplifier, have you connected the RCA output of the radio to the RCA input of the amplifier? There are many things that must be connected properly for a sound system to work, if you are not familiar with how they connect together you really should have a professional do it for you. If you furnish the needed information I will be glad to help you further. If you do not furnish the needed information there is really nothing more I can help you with.

if you installed a new hard drive.. did you also installed windows on that new hd? if you did.. you may need to also install the sound card drivers.

the sound from your speakers depend on the sound card on your computer, and the sound card works only if you install the drivers that are specific for that sound card/computer. if you need help finding the drivers post back you computer specs (model, brand etc) and operating system and we'll help you find the drivers that may need to be reinstalled.

Sound driver installation problem


HAVE YOU UN-INSTALLED THE PREVIOUS SOUND DRIVER BEFORE YOU TRYING TO INSTALL THIS ONE? IF NOT, AND YOU ALREADY HAVE A SOUND DRIVER INSTALLED, YOU WILL HAVE TO UN-INSTALL IT OR DISABLE IT UNTIL YOU GET THE NEW ONE INSTALLED. THEN SET THE NEW DRIVER AS YOUR DEFAULT DRIVER ONCE INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE.

Dynex soundcard is installed however my pc still has no sound!


Hi Sammantha78,

I had a similar problem with my computer and I went and bought new sound card and installed it and I still had no sound. I then went and bought a new set of speakers and now i got sound. I suggest you test another set of speakers on your computer to see if it’s not your Altec Lansing speakers that is not working.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

No sound


Yes you have to install the drivers for your sound card.....this always happens when you install XP it fails to read what drivers are in your sound card which is on board. Do you have the original drivers do you know the sound card onboard?
