    I just bought 3 CDs and none of them will read. Once I select a different source, ie tuner, audio output will begin again.

    Same problem for me..... radio plays fine but cd and ipod = no sound

  • capt42 May 11, 2010

    Point of clarification .. do you mean that NO sound comes from the unit from any source (i.e., radio, mp3/usb input). The problems I have noticed are:


    1. Fuse - depending on your wiring.

    2. The input CD is actually a DVD and burned as a DVD.

SOURCE: Error 6 on in car stereo

Here is the link to the user manual for your player if you need it; http://www.clarion.com/gb/en/MungoBlobs/483/874/DXZ838RMP-EU.pdf Page 38 of the manual (page 42 of the pdf file) describes the error codes error 6 states "a disk is loaded upside down inside the cd deck and doesnt play properly" Suggested solution is to try the disc the other way up, if this doesn't help then there is most likely a problem with the lens - possibly cured by cleaning, please ask again if you want to try this yourself and we can talk you through it Hope this helps :)

At the moment I dont know why,but Im not a man to give up easily and will give you the solution when I have it.

hi try first to insert a clean up CD, and test your Cd player with an original CD, if the problem persist , your laser sense is defficient you have to go to fix it to a specialist.
hope this helps you

You will definitely need to connect the Yellow Wire Memory Back-Up Lead, since this is the connection from the radio to the battery that stores the time and your presets. If it is not hooked up, you can use the radio, but all your settings will return to default once you turn off the car. The Yellow Wire Bus Power Lead sounds like it would be for powering an auxiliary unit like a Sat Radio or HD Radio add-on. You will not need to connect this unless you have an add-on such as one of these.

I have a clarion cy358 car audio system. it has CD am/FM. I wanna know whether what format is compatible with this CD player? Can I play mp3? it doesnt show any mp3 icon on the interface.


it only need to indicate WMA or MP3 when its playing in that format. depending on how old the head unit is... most head units sold after the new ISO-9001 Standards need to display any and all specs http://www.iso.org/iso/about/the_iso_story.htm try burning a data copy first to see if the head unit can search through the folders... if it wont search or do anything at all... its .wave (cd) if the display reads unsupported format and continues to search....it does play mp3/wma to get the mp3/wma files to play, change the settings in the burner program. (try default settings) ..... it takes time to render a nice mp3 disc from scratch, one its working, its really rewarding... 18-20 songs just isnt enough anymore.... try to use 320kbps mp3's as much as you can... anything lower will make ant car stereo sound like a 10 dollar alarm clock... keep the bit-rate high when it comes to music... your ears will last longer too...

I can't get any real bass out of this unit. Iv'e gone thru the manual 20 times and I set the "DZE" off, then adjust the bass to max and it made a little difference. But this unit is suposed to...


Hi,
Try to exchange one speaker connections only, unplug connector from speaker and put them + to - and - to + pins.
In my opinion, both speakers are giving out of phase sound that cancels the bass sound, speaker connections should be same phase to get bass sound so just change connecting two wires at any one speaker, that will work.
Thanks.

Only door speakers have sound on the cd mode


the amp requires a 12 volt power constant, and a 12 volt "on" signal. you prolly have the 12 v "on" hooked up to the car stereo's antennae remote, meaning your amp gets power when the radio is on, cuase the radio is sending a signal to the amp (thinking that it is sending a signal to the antennae to raise)

you do have one of those collapsable antennas, right?

This sounds like a signal problem. Make sure that all of your signal cables are plugged in fully. If all are, you need to check for coninuity between the shield ground of the head unit's RCA jacks and the case of the head unit. With no RCAs plugged into the head unit, you should read ~0 ohms between the shield of the RCA jacks and the case of the head unit.
