Faulty RCA rear out on KDC 2020

The RCA connection is faulty on my head unit and as such signal to my amplifier is sporadic at best. I've had a look inside to see if i can solder the connection, but it does not look like i can do anything about it as the RCA does not join onto the circuit board itself, but via a plug.

I was wondering if anyone knew a little bit more about this unit that could give me some tips on repairing it?

My kenwood head cd unit in my car keeps on flashing "protect" i checked all wires in the head unit and nothing.it will stay ok for a while but it goes back to protect...


hi,
Check the speaker in you car which are connected to you head unit. if the speaker or the wire which runs to the speakers have some problem then the head unit will show protect.
Also one more possibility is, the faulty output amplifier IC in the head unit. if the audio out put IC is short or fail then also the unit will show the same. Audio output Ic means the audio amplifier. Check the speaker and wire first. Mainly the wire check is there is any insulation damage in it. if the insulation get damaged possibility to get contact with the metal part of the body of the car then also the protect will appear.
ok

What external speakers do I need for the RP8078? Where can I get them?


Hello
You cannot connect it diretly to speaker. It has only preamplifier output for left and right channels, and an optical output to connect it to digital input sources. You must have an amplifier and speaker system to connect it with. It can be any type and brand you like, according to your taste and finacial capacity. Amps can be of cheaper to high quality type. This device can be connected to a digital amplifier, with optical intput, frome which it will convert the signal upto 8 channels or more. But the cost will be sometimes 200 times to the cost of your present device you have revealed here. OK.

Will not play shows a TOC error


Possible fault in the main board processing the RF signals or even a weakness of the optical unit.
In both cases the signals have to be traced to confirm . Clean the head and check, try a good quality Cd to check , check if there is issues with CD or DVD. If so the main board is faulty.
It can be the failure of the processor IC but to replace might need some expert help.
Hope this helps.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO CONNECT A SET OF SPEAKERS TO THE CD PLAYER PLEASE? WOULD I HAVE TO USE AN AMPLIFIER THEN TO SPEAKERS AND HOW WOULD I COME FROM THE MARANTZ CD PLAYER ? THANKS -GRAHAM


You will have to use an amplifier to power the speakers from the cd player, the output on the CD player isn't enough. You will need to hook the CD player to the amplifier using the red and white wires, on the CD hook them to the OUT and on the amp hook them to the CD or Aux or Tape in. Then select that input on the amp and enjoy the music.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Thanks for using FixYa

After the recent purchase and professional installation of a used Nakamichi CD 700, I noticed my front speakers weren't working. Activating the fader adjust I noticed that when I turned the knob...


I would recommend taking it back to the pro that installed it given it hasn't been to long. Also the deck should be warrantied and if the front side is not working I would consider that a faulty head unit. I know Nakamichi head units are not cheap.

Go back to the store you purchases it from or contact Nakamichi directly at the link below:

Compatible units


Hi check if your changer connects to the amplifier with a single ribbon cable. if this is the case then the unit is not compatible with anything else.
If it has its own mains cable and a couple of RCA connectors on the rear, then anything should be fine

Sound only coming through one channel


You may possibly have a fault with the RED RCA output plug on your CD possibly a loose wire on the internal side or a faulty plug altogether. Try plugging it into another stereo and see if the problem replicates itself.... if so then i am sure that will be the case.
