SOURCE: my kenwood ddx616 indash keep showin DC OFFSET ERROER?

You could have a speaker wire or speaker tensile (flex) lead that is shorting to ground, on a floating ground BTL head unit (all that claim 18-25 watts RMS per channel) all 8 speaker wires are always floating at about half of the supply voltage, IE if the voltage is 14.4 with the engine running the speaker wires will all measure about 7 volts to ground.

The flex leads are the wires on a speaker that go from the terminals to the cone.

How to resolve miswiring problem on jvc steeo car


MIS WIRING" is displayed when there is a DC offset voltage detected at the speaker terminals ('+' and '-').

This is normally caused by connecting a '+' or '-' speaker wire to either GND or Vcc (+12V)

1. Collect cable not being used and make sure they are tapped off and reset

2. Remove a connected cable one at a time and press RESET

3. If after a cable removal and reset the error goes away, last cable removed was fault. Examine cable for short.

4. If you remove and reset all cables except for (RED, YELLOW, and BLACK) and you stilll have error, the short is internal of unit and requires service

Canon ir3300 show error code E191-0000


E191 code indicates a communication error/fault has occurred between the DC Controller PCB and the HVT unit on the Composite Power Supply.

Check all of the connections for the DC Controller PCB and the Composite Power Supply.
Make sure the wire harness between the DC Controller PCB and the Composite Power Supply is good by performing continuity checks (including cross-checks and checking for a pinched wire to ground for each wire) and visually inspecting it.
Make sure the wall voltage is correct (neutral to ground should be less than 1 volt).
Finally, try replacing the DC Controller PCB and/or the Composite Power Supply.

Installed amp and offset light comes on, no sound out of speakers


  • You have a ground loop somewhere. You need to check where your amp is screwed into at and make sure it is not to the metal on the car itself. Check your Power and Ground wire connections good to. What's happening is your amp is generating unnecessary DC current. Find your loose or shorted connection and this will go away. The majority of the time you have a loose or insufficient ground connection.

I am getting a DC error on my alpine cde-102 head


Hello christo12385,

The DC error is most likely caused by a shorted or grounded speaker wire. Check all speaker wires, correct the problem, and then go into the sound setup settings and reset the POWER IC to ON.

Hope this helps.

I get power to the stereo but no sound comes out


Hello eklypss2000,

According to the manual for the Alpine CDE-102, the message "DC ERROR" is displayed if there is a short to ground in the speaker wiring. Check all of your speaker wires and make sure that no bare wire is shorting against the vehicle metal or against other wires. Repair or replace the wire as necessary. After correcting the problem, set POWER IC to "POW ON" according to the instructions in your manual.

Hope this helps.
