Question about Clarion DXZ475MP CD Player

1 Answer

Clarion DXZ385USB if anyone could help, please do! I have the above clarion stereo and everything is hooked up correctly, however, when I turned up the base I got an error message that reads "amp grnd". No matter what I do, including setting the reset button, unhooking the speakers and hooking up again- that error message stays on. Can anyone help me witht this problem? I get no sound at all and the message stays on! Thanks,

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 your Factory speaker locations for blown speakers or bare wires to metal.

My clarion dc 628 cd 6 disc changer will not switch on


Well, I have just had the same problem with the same model.
I had a look inside and it turned out in my case that the din socket that connects the multichanger to the head unit had one pin that had failed, (the power 12V). I had to go through every pin, one by one and found that the 12V was present on the lead coming from the head unit, but was not making its way to the board. It had failed within the socket surprisingly.
So I wired in a new, fused 12V feed to the circuit board, and hey presto, everything came back to life!
I thought I would just add this in case anyone ever searches for this problem in the future.

I having problems getting my subs to play through the cd player!!


More than likely you have hooked up the power anttena wire as your remote turn on. So hook up the OTHER blue wire to feed your amplifier, and problem solved.

My clarion dxz385usb has no sound.


Check to make sure exposed wires aren't grounding themselves out. I just had this problem and after 2 days of re-wiring and re-checking almost every wire I finally found the culprit. The Remote wire from my amp has become exposed and grounded itself out. Unit worked fine, same problems you are having.

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input


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.

I just got a Clarion DXZ385USB deck installed, but the screen does not appear blue as in the product pictures. It is dark and barely readable. Dimmer is turned off. Any ideas?


I didn't have to connect the illumination lead. If you have the battery wires(yellow) connected, the screen will light up pretty bright. When I connected the illumination wires(orange), I got the same dim screen light effect.

CLARION ADZ628R STEREO UNLOCK CODE


To reset , leave SWITCHED ON ...UNDISTURBED for up to 24 hours

The only CLARION code available for free (using a serial number ) from anywhere on the Internet is if your radio also has a BARCODE SERIAL NUMBER beginning with C7000000 + + + + on a label somewhere on the metal casing.

(There are usually two barcodes on one label. The one required is the lower one )

T

If not then it will only be available from your Main Dealer or a Decoding
