Your best bet is to find a local professional stereo installer shop that carries that unit. Many will let you look through the user manual of one of thier display units if you ask. And remember never to buy a product from a company that lists the product in thier catalog but leaves that unit out of thier online manual download and support site.

How do i use the usb pot in my calrion db279usb for my ipod?

the USB port on the clarion should allow you to hook up varios devices and read the data on them.
Unfortunatly the Apple Ipod has proprietary software and this may not allow it to work with the Clarion. To test this try another MP3 player or memory stick with some song files on it preferably one that shows up as a generic USB storage device to Windows and see if it works. If it does and the Apple doesn't then the apple is probably not compatable this way. Fortunatly the clarion does have aux-in which should work with any MP3 player.

Clarion radio sound flickers

make sure your wirings are rated to handle the current needed by your radio. You might have a large voltage drop when it is at high volume level because it will draw lots of current. You might need to change the size of your wires to your Clarion. Check the voltage near the radio when it starts to flicker if it goes below the source voltage of 12V. hope this helps

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input

It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

Power goes on and off-flickers

That is most likely because the radio is drawing more power than the wire can provide. First make sure you have good connections, especially a good clean ground. Next make sure the power wire from the boat is at least the same size or thickness as the power wire on the radio. If that doesnt work, you may want to wire the radio directly to the battery, using an aftermarket inline fuse and wire available at any car audio store.

We need manuals for Clarion DRX9375R Pro Audio cd car stereo

Hello badmmkitty,

It appears that the DRX9375R is no longer supported directly by Clarion Audio, so locating a "free" manual probably means finding one that someone no longer needs.

If you do not want to pay the $14.99 for a PDF copy, available here:, I'd recommend that you post your need for the manual on one or more of the online car audio forums.

Hope this helps.
