Radio not playing

We have just installed a K-G396. When we turn the car on the unit turns itself on then straight off. The CDs will load and eject, and the time display is working however the unit will not turn on and play the radio or CD. What's going on?? Thanks! From Lisa.

It sounds like you didn't hook up both your power wires on your cd player. there is a red and yellow power wire. one is constant power to keep memory and the other turns on the radio when the key is turned. check to see if both are hooked up

MCD36 6 disc changer won't eject or play CDs. Erro messages are Surface or CD loading!


Please remove the top cover and manually rotate the motor to release the loading. It can be due to a warped cd or a motor pulley which had slipped.
Also check if the linking cord to the loading motor is having a continuity.
If not there is fault in the processor controller or the loading IC.

I have a 2008 ford fusion. i just loaded a cd into in dash cd player and it now comes up with a "load error". i tried to eject it as well and it tells me "eject error'. it took my cd but it...


See if the cd is not fully inserted, take another cd and gently try to put it into the cd player to push any stuck cds back in. If this does not work you will need to replace the radio.

Cd would not eject now wont play or eject or anything.


Start by checking all of the fuses in your car if the radio is not even powering on. If this does not work your next step is to have the unit repaired or replaced at which point the cds can by removed by taking the unit apart. You can do this yourself or take it to a best buy and have it replace with an aftermarket unit which will be much better and a lot cheaper than going back to the dealer

While testing before final installation of the JVC KD-G240 CD Player, the only power I can get is to eject a disc and temporarily display the time. I cannot turn the unit on. After pressing the reset...


This is an indication that the "ACC" line is not getting the 12 volts to turn on the radio. Check the fuses, it may have blown one. The "ACC" is the red wire that comes off the back of the radio harness. It needs a 12 volt supply when the key is turned on for the radio to work properly. When this is missing, you will have the conditions you have described. The yellow wire is for a constant 12 volts even when the radio is off and the car is off. Since you do get the eject and the clock display you have a good ground, so that is not an issue. You just need to find out why you do not have the 12 volts on the red wire when the key is turned on in the car.

I just installed a KD-G396 into my car. when i turn the keys it turns on for about 2 seconds and turns off again. Then i can't turn it on again until i unplug it or reset it.


Hi,
sounds like the unit is going into 'protect' mode. It does this normally if there is a fault in the speaker connections.

you have to check all the speaker wires to make sure they are connected without touching each other and that the wires are not shorting out to the car bodywork, or any other metal surface.

If everything looks ok. you'll have to check that 1 of your speakers isn't blown.

Regards

Philip
