Source Keeps Switching To Standbye

When I have my headunit on any source, Sirius, CD, tuner, etc. it will randomly and automatically switch to Standby mode, then it will flip back to the source I was on, and then back to standby. A lot of the times I have to hit the source button to switch it back. I have cleaned all the terminals on my faceplate and the brain itself. Could this be something with the wiring? And if so what would it be? Or does the unit itself need to be sent in to be serviced. Any help would be appreciated Thanks! Albert

Re: Source Keeps Switching To Standbye

There's nothing in the wiring that could cause this problem; sounds like a fault in the faceplate. I would say the unit needs to be serviced.

The radio keeps going back to old stations

Do you have the yellow wire connected to a constant power source. The yellow wire controls the memory and has to have 12v going to it even with the key off.

XO VIson DVD 7" works fine but when it is turned

sounds like you might have the wire that is always supposed to have power hooked to a switched power source

is it possible you hooked up power wires wrong

sounds like switched wire is hooked to battery and battery connection is hooked to switched source

only other option would be if ground is hooked incorrectly it should be hooked diretly to clean non painted metallic spot on cars body

if you need more help give me more details and i will try to help more

Good luck

Where do you connect the data cable...on back of the stereo and where else?

The data cable (IP Bus) can connect to several different component designed for your unit, i.e. xm/sirius tuner, HD radio tuner, CD changer, etc.

Can listen to tuner but not mp3 or cd/ dvd

Make sure you are not using the power antenna lead to trigger the amp for your mid/highs, I just had this issue with the oem amp in my truck. When I chose any other source other than radio everything would die except bass. I used the ant lead for the amp for my door speakers and the amp trigger for my sub amp.

Question about sirius radio for kenwood cd player

You can try it, but I think you might need a media expander/controller. I see some going for around $100 on Ebay. It allows you to add and interface many component to your deck. But make sure the deck ready to control it. You can tell by the label on the deck(Ipod ready, XM ready, Sirius ready, Changer ready....ect). Goodluck.

Trying to add more audio equipment to my Pioneer Nav stereo

The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.

Sharp TV switches to "input 2"

There's an option on the menu to tuen 'demo mode' on and off. If it's set to on, that's your problem. It will be switching input sources every 2 minutes or so. Switch this off and it'll be ok again.
