Question about Panasonic CQ-DFX403U CD Player

1 Answer

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.

I want to connect my mp3 player to my eclipse 5443 cd receiver in my car.


If there no suitable audio inputs at the back of the CD reciever then you can use an audio FM transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter, then connect your MP3 player into the FM adapter and tune your FM radio the the FM transmitter's frequency to listen to the music on your MP3 player.

I have a pioneer cassette player, how can I input a auxiliary audio into pioneer keh p5450,(like ipod,usb drive....)


ipods come with a transmitter that plugs into the ipod. it has an fm radio instruction manual tells you what frequency to tune to and how to select the station on the transmitter. this way you dont wire anything into your cd player, providing it has fm radio.

Is the CDA-9827 capable of playing songs from an mp3 player (does it have an input option)?


The Alpine CDA-9827 only has an input connector for an external CD Changer.

You could get an FM Transmitter for your MP3 Player, and play your MP3 Player using your FM Radio in your Stereo.

Here is an excellent MP3 Player FM Transmitter:

Help with ipod connection to cd player


You must use 1 of 3 methods to connect your iPod
1. FM modulator to wirelessly broadcast on a low FM band
2. iPod 3.5mm male/male direct connect cable.
3. iPod USB connection - with Pioneer iPod adapter module.

The direct connect 3.5mm port is on the back of the unit. One plugs into the radio - one plugs into the iPod headphone port.

Cannot select ipod as a source on my deh-1500


The RCA jacks are preamp outputs (to use with a sub or external amp) not input to use with an iPod

There is no way to direct-connect an iPod to the DEH-1500.

You can use an iTrip or other FM-radio transmitter to play your iPod through an unused channel on the FM radio band
