SOURCE: Sanyo Car stereo fm doesnt work

there is a broken solder joint on the board inside and the temperature effect is causing the minute flexation of the broken solder, acting as a bad switch.

SOURCE: VOIP321 is unregistered

I had a similar problem. I unregistered the main handset & then when I attempted to re-register it, I had the same issue (handset attempts the registration process & eventually fails). I tried everything including pressing the "Reset" button on the back of the basestation & downloading firmware version 1.0.4.80 (started with 1.0.4.50). Turns out I had to press & hold the "Page" button on the basestation while the handset is attempting the registration process.

This info is in the manual. I know, I should have read the manual first. But at least I'm not alone; the guy at Philips told me to return the product because it must be defective.

It appears that the registration process is a security process/exchange between the basestation & handset. I'm not certain how standard this process is (i.e., whether differing manufactures utilize the same security protocols). If not, it is likely that other manufacturers' handsets cannot talk to the basestation. I mention this because you said you registered the main handset multiple times, so it sounds like you are familiar with the registration process.

Nevertheless, this might help others who decide to spend their weekend pressing the "reg" button a bzillion times, watching it fail as many times, & looking for answers on

Indash am/fm cd cassette player keeps spitting out cd's


Your CD may not be music CD. Some car radio doesn't accept MP3 or WMV files. Change it to a good radio such as JVC car radio.

JVC RX 515 receiver


The fault is on the tuner section of the receiver. FM radio signals are processed by one IC in the tuner section. Since you can hear the station, it won't be that one. The only other is the Stereo Decoder. The radio signals are passed to this and that splits the signal into the left and right channels. If you can't here one of the channels then the Decoder IC will have failed. If you are lucky the board will label the IC, otherwise find the tuner section (look for coils). Then read the numbers of the IC's. If there are several enter each number into Google and find what it does. If you find one that says "decoder" or "FM multiplex" that is the one you need to replace.

Can't change channel of a Motorola Visar Handie-Talkie FM Radio Model: H05RDD9AA4DN It seems that this radio operates in only one channel and I need to be able to chanmge channels. However everything else...


The Visar has a channel lock feature. If you hold down the two channel buttons at the same time, it will do one of two things depending on the settings. Either the channel will lock, or the channel numbers in the LCD will flip.
If you press the channel button and the "popples" "pop" (for lack of a better word) then the channel selection buttons re most likely OK. To fix it you just press both channel buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds. It will beep and you should be able to change the channels. If not, then it needs to be repaired.

Playing video audio through car stereo Toyota Matrix


You're probably gonna need a wired FM modulator. That part will take an audio output and run it into your antenna plug on your radio. It will use a FM channel, but it's wired directly to your stereo. So no static as found with wireless FM transmitters.

STATIC/INTERFERENCE


&R=11812445&C=17577363&K=NBy0rr?h=2mv3s7&r=11812445 Your SIRIUS radio contains an FM transmitter that allows it to operate wirelessly through your car FM radio. We have determined that the output of this transmitter exceeds the limits established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As a result, the unit may interfere with the performance of radios operating in areas adjacent to your radio. There are no health or safety concerns associated with this issue.
  • If you listen to your SIRIUS radio wirelessly through your vehicle's FM radio, then please review the solutions listed below and select the one that works best for you. SIRIUS will provide you the best solution at no cost.
  • If you use your SIRIUS radio only when docked in a boombox, or directly connected to your car radio or home stereo using audio cables or a cassette tape adapter, then no interference can occur and no further action is required, provided you have turned off your FM transmitter. To turn off the FM transmitter, first press the MENU button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight “FM Transmitter” and push the SELECT button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight the "FM On/Off" menu item and then press the SELECT button. Use the up/down buttons to highlight "FM Off" and press the SELECT button. To exit the "FM On/Off" menu, press the MENU button. Use the same procedure to turn off the FM transmitter if you use Solution 1 or Solution 2 below..
Solution 1 - Direct Wired Audio Connection: If your vehicle radio has a “LINE IN” or “AUX IN” jack, you can use a stereo cable to connect directly to your SIRIUS radio. This solution is the easiest to install and provides the best audio performance. Many newer vehicles provide the required audio input jack. It will normally be found on or near the front faceplate of your vehicle’s radio.

Solution 2 - Cassette Tape Adapter
: If your vehicle has a cassette tape player, you can use a cassette adapter that allows you to play your SIRIUS radio through the cassette portion of your vehicle radio. The adapter slips into your vehicle radio as easily as a cassette tape and provides better performance than a wireless connection. fcc_a_2.jpg


Solution 3 - FM Extender Cable Kit: An FM extender cable will provide a special transmitter antenna that allows you to obtain the best audio performance through your vehicle’s FM radio. This solution is easy to self-install, but does require that an easy-to-hide wire be run in your vehicle so the transmitter antenna can be placed in close proximity to your vehicle’s radio antenna. Using this FM Extender Cable Kit, you will continue to use your SIRIUS radio exactly the same way as you do currently. fcc_a_3.jpg



Solution 4 - FM Direct Adapter with Professional Installation: An FM Direct Adapter provides a wired connection between your SIRIUS radio and your vehicle’s radio. You will continue to listen to your SIRIUS radio through the FM tuner of your car radio, but the FM Direct Adapter eliminates the outside static and interference you sometimes experience when using a wireless FM connection. This solution usually requires professional installation. We will provide a certificate redeemable for installation at an installation center in your area.

Please go to www.sirius.com/optimize and select the solution that works best for you. If you have any questions, please call 1-(877) 635-5130. Detailed instructions will be included with your solution.
You will improve the performance of your SIRIUS radio and reduce the potential for interfering with adjacent radios if you properly tune your FM transmitter. Please see the FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips below for more information.
We are sorry for this inconvenience. We are confident these solutions will allow you to continue to enjoy the great music, news, sports and entertainment that only SIRIUS Satellite Radio can offer with no impact on your radio’s performance.
Sincerely,

SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO


FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips

To tune your FM transmitter turn off your SIRIUS radio and tune through the FM channels on your vehicle’s radio to locate an FM channel (except 87.7/87.9) that is not broadcasting in your area. If you use an FM channel that is being used by a local broadcaster, it will interfere with the performance of your SIRIUS radio. Once you have located an FM channel that is not being used for broadcasting in your area, save it as a preset on your vehicle radio. This will become your SIRIUS preset. If you’re not sure which FM channels are not being used in your home or travel cities, you can go to www.sirius.com/fmchannel and search for an FM channel based on zip code.
Turn on your SIRIUS radio. In the SETTINGS or MENU on your SIRIUS radio, locate the “FM Frequency” adjustments. Set the channel number on your SIRIUS radio to match the SIRIUS preset on your vehicle radio. Refer to your user guide for detailed instructions on how to do this. The FM transmitter in your SIRIUS radio is automatically set to FM channel 88.1. This may not be the best channel in your area.
