Question about Panasonic CQ-DFX403U CD Player

Using an ipod with CQ-DFX403U

Back in October you suggested using an fm transmitter to hook up an ipod to this model radio: http://www.fixya.com/support/t226741-connecting_mp3_player_cd_deck

I had Cicuit City install this radio and run a cable from the back of this unit and through the dash so that I could plug in my ipod. I used an adapter that had a male head phone end and the other end plugged into the AUX plug in the back. They mentioned nothing about needin a transmitter and I was trying to avoid that...

The panasonic model says that I should see the AUX option when I hold down the select "knob," but I get all the other options EXCEPT "AUX-IN."

Any thoughts? Thanks!

This is the link to your units pdf manual. It also covers a 7 series model which does have "Aux in" Your unit does not. You do have the capability to add a cd changer via the link on the back of the deck but it is Not an auxillary input. Now, it is correct that you could use a FM modulator running thru the tuner on 87.1 or 89.1. I think the confusion on this unit was a quick glance at the manual. It does have an "audio in" but it is specific to the panasonic disc changer and triggered thru the changer din cord. which is why you see no "Aux" on the display nor hear any audio. If you look at page 5 in the pdf version of the manual it states that the 403 does "Not" have aux in. The manual reads tricky on the other pages, sounding and looking like they are detailing the 403 when in fact the example is the 783. At the moment I can't think of a "good fix" for this pickle. I'll noodle it thru and if I can get you a solid way to make this do what you wish without lots of signal loss I'll post another comment. Hope this helps explain what's happened.

How to connect your iPod to a Car Stereo


Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.

AUX
1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)

2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.

3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.

4. Connect your iPod.

5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

FM Transmitter
1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.

2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.

3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.

4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.

How to add an iPod Input into a Stock Radio?


<p>You can add an iPod to a stock radio in your car, even if the plant does not have an auxiliary input or iPod input using a specific number of iPod car accessories. One such accessory is a cassette adapter that plugs into your iPod as a headset, but ends on a cassette tape to your stock cassette radio. However, not all cars have cassette players, thus more accessible to the FM transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod to an FM transmitter, if you connect headphones to the iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the FM transmitter to your cigarette lighter to power and then to the transmitter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press up and down on the transmitter to the FM transmitter to change, you will pass the signal to your radio. Choose a station that is not a radio station on it so you do not interrupt the signal. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Set your stock radio to the channel you selected on your transmitter and then play the songs on your iPod. You will see the songs on your iPod through the radio station you selected. <br />

Connecting a mp3 player to my cd deck


Hi Rembo,

 

From reading the manual on your deck, you do not have an Auxilliary input for something like a MP3 player.  now if you want to hear your MP3 player on the Deck , you will need to get you a Fm transmitter with auxilliary input.  I think they have those at Best Buy.  Thats where you hook your MP3 head phone output to the AUXilliary input on the FM transmitter.  You would have to tune your Tuner on the deck to the frequency of the Transmitter.  Coolest thing to do with your Deck is to download all the songs you love in MP3 format on your computer, and burn about 150 to 250 of those songs on one CDR. Then play that in your deck.
