Disconnect all 4 speakers, make sure the speaker wires dont touch each other...turn on th stereo and re-connect the speakers one by one.. if you connect one particular speaker and it makes the sound mute, then that is your bad speaker, and / or wiring.

My radio worked when I bought my truck but now it turns on but will not play any sound to the speakers


Park your truck in a silent place (best time to do at night) ask someone to get close to any speaker and in a silent place and turn on the radio. When turning on there should a slight "click" sound in the speaker. If there is a click sound then tune to other radio station and try if still no sound then there is a problem with your receiver circuit. If there was no click sound then either:
Your radio amp circuit is gone or
Wire connecting speaker are broken

You can trace the broken wire by physically checking the wire from speaker to head unit, if its fine then your radio needs repair.

Pioneer DEH-P6500 head unit doesnt turn on


Check your radio fuse. It is likely if you didn't disconnect your battery terminal that you may have blown a fuse.
About the speaker distortion, you may need to install filters to each speaker. They are not very expensive and can be found at just about any electronics store.

Popping and Humming noise from my audio system?


Ground Loop Isolators are nice, but if you want truly crystal clear sound, you will need to run a common ground. All electronics will need to be run close to the amp, as more than about 3 feet of ground wire from the amp can cause sound issues. When I ran my common ground, I connected my radio and satellite together, and ran one sigle ground wire to the backseat of my car, where the amp grounds are located. This will optimize the clarity of the sound coming through the speakers. For the popping sound in the speakers when the car is powered on or off, you need to see if the radio itself has a wire to power the remote connection on the amp. Most of the time, they will, and this is the wire you will use to turn on the amp itself, as it delays each item powering on and reduces the chance of popping in the speakers. DO NOT run the remote wire from the amp to the accessory wire of the radio, as this will cause the popping sound you are hearing. If the radio does not have an Amp Turn-on wire, then you may need to improvise by using an accessory wire in another location, but even this is may cause popping as well. The pop comes from multiple things turning on at once, so the Amp Turn-on wire delays the amps for just a moment, preventing the pops.

I put the radio in a different vehicle. Now all I can hear is the beeping noise when I push the buttons. The Cd player and the radio seem to be working but I get no sound from the speakers. However I do...


digital output system possibly. Im not sure what unit you are dealing with but it may if it is a stock radio have a digital amp somewhere that converts it or it may need the actual speakers. i have seen both setups.

Volume issues with clarion M309 installed on a boat


Hello jcox7704,

Your head unit is 50 watts X 4 channel maximum power and 21 watts RMS so it's possible that all you need is more power to the speakers. But even 21 watts RMS should be enough for normal speakers. Before investing in an amp, I'd check the speakers and their wiring. Measure the impedance (resistance) at the head unit side to see if they match up.

Hope this helps.

Hi there JT,

An Amp makes existing sound louder. If you aren't getting sound now, there's a problem.

From your description, it sounds like your stereo is going through all the motions, it looks and acts like it is functioning. Just no sound.

If that is wrong, let me know.

When you turn it on, do you hear anything from the speakers? White noise, a click, anything, any indication that they are hooked to any kind of power supply?

Let's do the basics (easiest) first:
  • Mute is off
  • Balance and Fader centered
  • Volume up
  • CD in and playing
Still nothing? OK.
  • I need you to access the back of the stereo. (Sorry)
  • Yellow and red are power. Black is ground. The unit works so these are ok. Blue is to turn on a remote device like an amp. There may be an orange, ignore.
  • There are four sets of wire for the speakers. Colors are White, Gray, Purple and Green. One of each set is solid colored, the other has a stripe.
  • White and gray are front
  • Purple and green are back. Same page?
  • These are what your speakers should be hooked to. One set for each speaker. Are they?
  • Eyeball the connects, look for shorts, disconnects, etc.
  • Get a speaker and test it right there behind the stereo on one set after another. Anything? If so, you have a problem in the wiring not the stereo
That's enough for now. I'd hate to write a book and have you solve the thing in chapter one. Get back to me with the answers and results. Those results will decide the next course of action (Unless of course it's fixed by then, in which case let me know with a nice FixYa rating).

Ihave a JVC G230 and there is no sound


you have one speaker that has a short, a good way to find it quick is turn radio off and on if any of them pop even the slightest that is where your problem is...if you dont hear a pop check that all wires are not touching a ground somewhere this send the unit into protection, just one speaker or wire will do this .it keeps the radio from burning up...

Infinity sound system for 2005 montero


There isn't an inbetween on sound. You either get nothing or you have something going wrong with your wiring some where. Have you tried hooking a speaker up directly to your cd player? Sounds like you have a speaker grounding out. Some times it's better to just open up your dash and unplug everything, (remove your fuse from the fuse box for your radio first). Start from scratch, if you have RCA's electrical tape them and any other metal components. That will create a grounding problem.
Hope this helps!

There nay be a wiring issue with your amp. When you are running a CD more power and sound quality is envolved so the amp works harder. Check the amp make sure everything is where it should be.
