Plays music for about 3 mins then stops

Possibly shorted unit. But sounds more like it reset all settings to 0. check ground on head unit itself.

My Clarion AM/FM,CDMP3,marine radio will play when...

    I had the same issue with a blown speaker that was shorting it
    self out. I found this on "" site.

    Step 1: Disconnect all the speakers from the head unit and try again. If the same message comes up, send the unit in for service.
    Step 2: If the message goes away, you have a wiring problem. Check each speaker lead for a short circuit, damaged speaker or a ground to chassis.

    Basically means one set (or more) of the speaker leads are touching each other (shorting out). This can be somewhere inline to your speakers or your speakers them selves. The advise above isn't to clear. In the first step they want to rule out the speakers attached but "disonnecting all the speakers" is vague. You should disconnect at the rear of the radio. This might be difficult because the multi plug in the back has the speakers and power wires together (at least most clarions). Also if it was a good install then the outgoing speaker wires were soldered to the long run speaker wires going to the speakers.
    To truly test for radio fault verses the wiring or speakers, you have to sever the connection at the back of the radio. If this is not something you wish to do then there is one suggestion. Order a new multi plug for the back of the radio. This way you can pull the old plug and test it with a new plug with no speakers attached (just have to run 12v positive and negative).
    If the radio is OK then start by checking all the wires to your speakers (if possible). If nothing seems bare and shorting (remember it's usually in tight places or were the wires are hanging loose that vibration will cause cutting to the wire) then disconnect all your speakers (at the rear of the speakers). Turn the radio back on and see if it does the error message again. If not reattach the speakers one by one checking for the error message.
    You can check these in any order. If you don’t want to order a new plug then you and can’t get to much of the wiring to physically check then starting at the speakers is OK.

CDX-SW200 plays the stereo but not the CD's

sounds like you connected the amp turn on lead to the power antenna wire coming from the deck, so the amp turns on when you have the radio on, but turns off when playing cds. you need to connect the amp turn on lead to the amp remote wire.

Just installed my Clarion DXZ375MP and no sound - error message AMP_GRD


Check your speaker output wires - if they are shorted together that will cause the head unit's internal amp to go into a protection mode like that.
