My Clarion stereo is less than two years old. Everything works fine but... When we play our auxilary from the DVD player or TV the volume only goes either off at zero or if you turn the dial to 1, it goes very loud. If you continue turning up the volume to 2,3,4 or any number higher, it still says at the same volume. So, it is either off at zero or quite loud at one with no adjustments over one. When the stereo or CD is playing the volume works just fine. I am going to try a different VCR just in case the problem can be traced back to that. Thanks alot!

Re: car stereo receiver
Maybe the owners manual would help. It says you can adjust the sensitivity of the AUX input through a menu. It sounds like the AUX sensitivity is just set to max. Look for the 'to change other settings' chapter, instructions are in there. If you don't have the manual, find it on the official website. http://www.clarion.com/us/en/products/2005/audio/source_units/cd/DXZ555MP/us-en-product-pf_1133851137392.html The link to download it is on the upper right.

It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).
I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.
, the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will
display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is
hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting
down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.
Check all the connections with an analogue multimeter set to 12 volt dc.You should get fsd at all points. There is no doubt that you have an intermittent fault on the wiring.However, there is a slim possibility that this fault may, in turn, have caused damage to the clarion.If you cannot find a fault on the wiring, then consult a repair manual (available to download) to see whether or not there is a fuse inside the clarion. If there is one fitted, check that to see if it is blown. If thate above does not sokve the problem you are welcome to email me for further help on email@example.com. But I think fokkowing the above advice shoukd solve you lack of sounds in your car. All the best
