Im not getting any power to it

hi lizzy, please make sure that the power wiring (red, black and yellow cables) of your unit is correctly connected to the vehicle. next check if the blk wire(ground) is connected to the chassis(metal body part) of your unit (use a mutimeter). if not then attach a wire from the body of your unit to the blk wire. also make sure that your antenna lead is connected to the unit, and that the antenna is securely grounded to the body of vehicle. once power is correctly connected your unit will light up a red LED light in the power/source button. if all this does not help it will be advisable to have unit checked at jvc service center. cheers!

My Kenwood DPX-4020 suddenly went "dead". No power whatsoever on the led's and nothing happens when i push any/all of the buttons. I have it reset many times, checked the wiring's and fuses at...

1st you need to check the fuse in the fuse panel in your car to see for some reason the radio fuse is not blown . if is change it . if not take your radio out and see if fuses for radio is blow on back of radio then some have a fuse on the red wire check fuse there too. if nothing buy a digital volt meter and start checking your ground wire to see if it broke . take volt meter turn on dc volts put black test lead on your radio ground then take the red test lead and and start touching the yellow wire to see if you get a 12 volts on meter if you get 12 volts ground is good ... then check the red wire turn on the ignition switch and put the red test lead on red wire and see if you get 12volts if nothing

either you have bad ground or you have a fuse blow in car some were .. if you can't figure it out call a local mecp certified shop and have them look at it ....

its possible that the radio is just died and you need to buy a new one electronics dont last forever when you use them daily ...

No power to front panel but have power to main unit.

You Have constant power (yellow wire) but your Acc wire or switched power wire (RED WIRE) does not have power. Check the connection of this wire. You most likely have a blown fuse in your vehicles fuse panel.

The radio was working, but had to replace cars battery. Now nothing. Fuse is OK.

It's normally just a blown fuse in your main fuse box under the steering wheel area. I'm assuming that when you say you checked "the fuse" you mean the one on the back of the radio unit itself.

Make sure all the wires are connected properly (especially the power and ground wires)

Good Luck!

Got a new Kenwood KDC-128 car radio recently, fitted it but the radio presets would not stay when the ignition was turned off. Then it stopped working altogether and I noticed the 10amp fuse at the back...

you need to hook the yellow wire off the back of the radio up straight to the battery this keeps memory power to the head unit then wire the wires in color coded sequence red to red black to black so on and so forth if this doesnt fix it you might want to think about replacing head unit

Kenwood KDC-MP438U acts as if there is no power to it,dead nothin

The speaker wires are very sensitive. You need to make sure that they are not grounding out. Once the unit senses this it will shut off. Pull the plug out of the back and start over.

Pioneer deh 1600 has no power

Well.. if there is smoke coming from the head unit, the head unit could be bad. It odviously may have a wire crossed or a fuse blown, or even the wire harness could be bad. First, check the fuse for the radio on drivers side door, then check the other fuse box under the hood. Make sure all radio fuses are intact and not blown. Second, check behind the head unit to make sure no wires are touching each other and shorting out. Third, if nothing else helps, buy a new head unit & wiring harness :]

hope this helps!!!

Will not turn on

maybe you lack ground connection, connect the antenna cable and connect the unit to the chassis of car.

also check the fuses on back of unit and fuse box.

No sound.

Disconnect speakers one by one and reset the unit each time. If the speaker is blown, or the wires are frayed, it will shut down the internal amp. Also check the fuse in the back of the radio first, it should be near the wire harness. Power cycle the unit as well, unplug it from the power source, plug it back in. Hope this helps.
