Question about Audiovox VM9512 Car DVD Player

Open Question

Jensen VM9512 NO AUDIO! Fried?

I have a VM9512 with no audio - no sound in any of the speakers when set to any source. I know it's not a wiring issue because I have another head unit that functions correctly.

I measured the voltages in all 8 of the speaker wires coming from the head unit. 6 of the wires measured 4.5V. The white wires however clearly aren't outputting the correct voltages. The white/bk (-) wire measured 11V, the white, (+) 0V. When connected to the speaker the white wire measures 0.14V.

I guess my big question is, is there any possibility that this issue is being caused by a user replaceable component, rather than an IC chip?

I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up. Thanks.

The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

It don't play audio through cd or dvd

are you running audio through an amp? if you are, you are probably using the power antenna remote wire instead of the amp remote wire.

Poor radio reception with Jensen VM9512 in 2001 Nissan Altima

If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.

if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..

hope this helps

i installed a rear monitor where my rear entertainment was and i just unplugged the unit. this caused no sound in the rear speakers. all i did was hook up the rear entertainment and put it somewhere out of the way. this is a possible solution.
