    there is no problem with the power to the unit it works fine.just no sound from the speaker out puts or pre outs.

    ok thanks for the clarification ;)

    if the stereo is turning off after a few seconds when you stop hearing sound, then I would say the unit is overheating and shutting itself down to prevent damage.

    If it is still under warranty I would take it back to halfrauds...i mean halfords and get a replacement

    however...if its not turning off and it is simply the sound which stops then maybe its a fault in the amplifier output of the stereo and again...take it back and get a replacement.

    hope this helps...but if you have another Q then feel free to ask

    is it an after-market stereo or the manufacturers own model?.

    has it just happened on a stereo you have installed yourself?

    What make/model of car and what make/model of stereo?

    All the above is needed to solve this rather bland question which could have a hundred solutions?

It sounds like some sort of overload causing the stereo to switch off to stop damage. Have you checked that you have the correct amp fuse installed in your fusebox?. Is there an in-line fuse on the live feed wire of the stereo? I suspect either too much power is going to it or that the unit itself has developed a fault.

    ok, I'm running out of ideas here, but unless it's maybe stuck on mute or the volume control isn't working then I'd say there is a problem internally with either the amp circuit or the output circuit in general....although with the price of CD players nowadays it would be cheaper to buy another rather than get this repaired.

    sorry I can't be anymore help to you :(

Just bought a car with this stereo. Was working fine and then I accidentally was messing around trying to figure things out and put it in demo mode. Now it's stuck!! Can someone please help?!?!

With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

I am not getting a bluetooth signal from my car stereo. Can this be fixed?

Does specification of your cr stereo say it has bluetooth? If it says, does it has a switch-on function? Look at manual, in setting! Once bluetooth is on, it should start sync with other device, headphone ir speaker, presume

Where can I find the connections the go on the back of the stereo

Usually behind the stereo in the console. Either a square or rectangle in shape. You can obtain adapters for differing units that allows the use of the original wiring harness without rewiring. Just a simple plug and play option.
