Question about Clarion DXZ545MP CD Player

1 Answer

Hi! My DXZ545MP CD Player had some buttons pushed by my dog in the car and now the volume no longer works. There is no sound at all regardless of the volume levels and it simply stopped playing music once my dog accidentally pushed whatever buttons. I've tried turning the volume up then down, shutting off the system and turning it on again, removing the face plate and reattaching it, pushing every button on the front panel, but nothing seems to get the sound back regardless of whether it is on CD, Tuner or Mcatcher...the rest of the device works just fine, just no sound! Any suggestions would be great!! Thanks! Kelly

First kelly... if you don't already have it .. here's the manual...

http://www.clarion.com/ca/en/MungoBlobs/754/615/DXZ545MP(Manual),1.pdf

you can reset that by unhooking the battery for about 10 minutes and hooking it back up... if that is an anti-theft type radio make sure you know the code and how to enter it. you'll have to set the pre-set stations again too.

Hello! Just bought a 2003 Citroen C3 with a Clarion stereo wich has a cd stuck inside. How do i get it out? Already tried eject and it does a strange noise but, the cd is still stuck inside. Help!


it sounds like the intake/ eject rubbers are not working this is almost always due to a broken drive belt take the top of the stereo and have a look for the intake wheel see if the belt is broken and then replace

Clarion DXZ545MP in yacht . charter client usedan mp3, pulled it out and the receiver would no longer get satelite radio, It also wqould not receive satelite radio from tv receiver qwhen on AUX. The name...


Have you tried 1st to pull the unit out of the wall using the little metal "keys" to release the deck from the mounting cage and than pull the power plug AND the Satillite plug as well and wait for 10 minutes or so and replug it but first hit the reset button and see what happens. I run into this frequently with Clarion's in boats/yacht, not sure why but i guess it could be result of a voltage surge. Now the display is saying that you have a blown speaker or more than likely a wire that is grounded out. I highly doubt the charter client caused the head unit to shut down other than the simple act or ejecting a cd. We quit selling Clarion for that very reason, an abnormal rate of repair occurances. And I would wager you have the hard wired remote controls either on the bridge or in the rear at the swim platform or both locations. These too could be the problem. I can't tell you how many hours i have spent running down a shorted speaker wire. Because if one is shorted in the "slightest" you get the message "amp guard". If push comes to shove Captain i recommend a small amplifier and use only the pre-outs (rca cables) instead of speaker wire. Good luck and let me know if i can assist you because i work on a lot of watercraft believe it or not in Arizona and most are over 34' Cuddys like SeaRay SunDancers etc. good luck...

Clarion dxz545mp amp guard issues


, 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 of your speakers

No, the RCA plugs are used for connecting to an amplifier only, they are not powerful enough to drive speakers directly.
