Headunit shuts off when inserting CD

I just purchased my Panasonic Headunit and installed it. Everything works fine except for when I hit the eject button to insert a CD. As soon as I hit eject the face flips down, then shuts off the headunit. As soon as the face returns to the up position, the headunit turns back on. Is this a problem in the wiring, or a problem internally in the headunit?

The player cannot read the data on the CD. The laser maybe dirty or defective. Before sending for repair try to use a disk cleaner.

SOURCE: Whining noise @ acceleration?

You have a bad ground somewhere. You also may nneed to replace your spark plug wires. The deck is getting interference from the engine due to a grounding problem.

Best of luck

SOURCE: Could radio wiring be causing my truck instrument panel to fail?

That wire is probably data. What you may have to do is get a radio-relocation harness, contact your local car audio shop. The company is Metra out of Florida. You will need to get this harness, possible p/n 70-6512. That way your OE radio data bus remains connected. I have this harness in my inventory, but I am in Edmonton, Canada..

When cd isinserted it does not start to play but show E-1 on screen

E1 = Disk is dirty, or is upside down. A disk has data other than CD-DA, MP3, or WMA has been loaded.

I'd try some other CD's, and if that doesn't work, I'd try one of those cheap CD lens cleaning kits. Try re-setting the whole deck (disconnected power).

If you receive an error reading or the cd ejects automatically briefly after being inserted, the headunit needs to be repaired or replaced.

Good luck.

I cant eject my cd

There is a indent in the front of the face of the radio. Try to push it with a sharp pencil or pen. It might reset the cd part and eject button might work again. If not you may have a cd stuck in it then you can try get tweezers and pull it out or a credit card and try to straighten it out. Those were some of the techniques I used when I was an installer for 12 yrs.

How to remove Panasonic cq-c1301u unit from car

This is an interesting question. As to the fact that you didn't mention what kind of car you have, I can't give you exact instructions, but I can give you approximate instructions. Read all Instructions b4 you do anything and detach battery b4 working on system!!!!!!
1. Most car's require you to remove a dashboard panel, of not the whole thing. (on a side note, the panel on my jeep that has to be removed just pops out).
2. Next you need to unscrew the adapter kit from the car. A lot of older cars put Double DIN headunits into their cars, These are the larger sized headunits. Most after-market systems require a plastic adapter to allow them to fit into the larger space. As long as your new unit is the same size as the older unit, this piece can be reused.
3. Then you must remove the old headunit from the adapter. Most are either screwed in or have pressure pins that hold it in place. Either unscrew or carefully push down the pressure pins until you can remove the old headunit.
4. If you have already purchased the wiring kit, if necessary, then continue onto next step, otherwise purchase appropriate wiring kit for your headunit and car. Do not open wiring kit until you are ready to hook up your new headunit!!!!
5. Find new wiring kit, detach old wiring kit, and hook up new wiring kit according to included instructions. For best reliability, I recommend using wire nuts as electrical tape isn't as relaible and can come apart after a while. If you need to save space and can't use wire nuts, I recommend liquid electrical tape. Let this dry before you go any further.
6. Attach new headunit to adapter and then attach wiring kit to back of the headunit. Make sure to attach radio cord to back of headunit. Push adapter and headunit back into place, adjusting wires as necessary. Screw adapter back into place.
7. Re-attach dash panel back to car, reattaching screws where and if necessary and reattach battery. Power up car and test system.
8. Listen away.

If you cannot get this to work, most places like Best Buys and Circuit City have professionals that have the necessary parts and expertise to exchange headunits in cars and can do this for a small fee. Just replacing a headunit should be relatively cheep. Adding other components as well would be more expensive.

I have the panasonic cq-c8303u radio and i would like to hook up the ipod to it. any tips?

You need to get the Direct Cable for iPod® (CA-DC300U) from panasonic. This allows you to plug in and control your ipod from your headunit. There is also the expansion module (CY-EM100U), however I am not sure if this is necessary if you have the Direct Cable. The Direct Cable might plug directly into the back of the headunit without the need for the expansion module. Check with the company before purchasing one or both. If the direct cable requires the expansion module, then get both, however, I think the direct cable works independent from the expansion module. Again, contact the company about this. The expansion module also lets you plug your ipod as well as other devices into your headunit, however I don't think it allows you to control them via the unit. I think if you want to control the ipod from your headunit, you just need the Direct Cable for Ipod®.

Faceplate will not open

Perhaps something is not installed correctly physically. Sometimes if something is a little twisted the way the unit is installed it will keep it from opening properly. Try moving the unit slightly and see if that helps.

Clarion DRX9375r AM/Fm/CD Headunit optical output question.

I have the same HU and the same processor as you. First I only used the chinch cables to the processor, and from the changer.

The improvements you make; your headunit DAC and your chancher DAC wil not be used anymore. The differens; normal with a cd you convert a digitalsignal into analoge, in the HU or changer, and then you make it digital again in the processor, en put the signal analoge into your amp.

The advantage is; the processor uses the famous Burr Brown DACs and that is know by its good sound processing.

cheers mate

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly

Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck

Brand New Unit Will Not Accept ANY Type of CD

I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
