I have a clarion nx501. The micro sd card that has the navigation on it is corrupted. the guys at clarion said that they can't cover this under warranty. please tell me what my options are. i heard...


Please read my post here: http://community.crutchfield.com/forums/p/22187/251957.aspx (pasted below).

I hope you bought your unit at a Clarion dealer....

Hi, (Team Crutchfield - please add this to your knowledg-base.)
I'm on my third NX501 (could have been the fourth if not for working directly with Clarion).
The SD Card corruption causes both loss of Navigation and intermittent Sirius start up (it'll never acquire signal).
Your unit needs to use the exact micro sd card it came with forever (it has a permanent serial number).
You have two choices:
1. Get Crutchfield to replace the unit
2. Call Clarion (I suggest this rather than ripping your dash apart over and over).
Here's what to do. Contact:

Ben will have you send your microsd and rebuild it for you and return it (likely with the firmware upgrade that addresses this issues on another microsd that can also be found here: http://clarion.com/ca/en/support/navigation_updates/NX501Fupdate/index.html).
While you're at it, update the Bluetooth firmware too: http://www.clarion.com/us/en/support/software/NX501/index.html
Once you get the card returned (THIS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT - EVERYONE WITH A Clarion NX501 SHOULD DO THIS!!!), back it up using Naviextras toolbox (the program clarion uses for map updates). You can get it here: https://clarion.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Once you follow these steps, barring your micosd physically or logically self destructing, you'll have an NX501 that's nearly problem free and backed up just in case that unfortunate corruption reoccurs.

Of Note: Ensure you insert the microsd card with the contacts facing up and do not force anything.

I'm extremely confident this will make a world of difference for you (and anyone suffering the microsd corruption of the Clarion NX501).
Regards,

Hello i have a clarion vrx785bt head unit it is stuck on amp protec mode i have tried the headunit in my other automobile is there a bulit in amp in this radio? if so what steps can i take to resolve this...


sounds like the IC amp in the head unit is shorted and the unit is in protect mode.
you would need to send it into clarion for replacement or repair unless you can find a local tech to replace the IC for you and reset the unit

In my boat is a Clarion CMD6 head unit with two rear CMQ1620R speakers, it distorts at medium to high volume, you cant turn it up load when going.Wishing to put two new speakers in the front, cannot cut...


Best bet is to take your boat to a qualified Marine Audio dealer (generally not a boat repair shop or marina), or to a good quality Car audio store that is insured to work on boats (separete insurance usually).
When it comes to boats, you need lots of power and speakers.
First thing to do is make sure what you have is properly installed. Then determine what is "distorting" .. is it too much base, purely volume or what.
Most boats we do (wakeboard style and river boats) we do: 40-75 watts RMS per speaker 4-6 speakers in boat 1 10" or 12" sub with 200-300 watts RMS Tower speaker if requested with 75-125 Watts RMS per speaker

Got second hand radio for my car its a clarion CY460 for nissan almera hooked it up and displays please wait... after waiting for a moment it says SECURE can anyone give me help or advise on what to do....


Unfortunately, this unit has a code which you need to input before it will work, But you may have to go too Clarions support website and ask for this code, or maybe your local garage can help, but i think the charge for this code will be around £40.
Just check around the unit as sometimes it is stuck to it.

My clarion drb3675 reads original audio cds but with audio cds I made it displays error 6. Anyone know the reason..


I've found a few comments online regarding that deck saying it's awfully picky about CD-R discs. CD-R's have a much lower reflectivity for the laser pickup than stamped CDs. Some CD-Rs are more reflective than others, though. You might try a few different brands of CD-R and see if any work better.
