Has your 3100 ever worked correctly since being installed? Can you give me more information about how it was installed (professionally or by your self)? Often times when these are installed the mute wires get connected (Mute 1, 2, and 3). These are unnecessary and will often cause problems because many stock radios don't have a dedicated mute wire. If you are able to get to the wiring disconnect and tape up the mute wires. Did that solve the problem? If not and if this also came on after a time where the Parrot worked correctly, it could be the blue box or the mute cable (the one with the wires that go to and from all the speakers with the black box on it) have gone bad. I've installed many of these without issues. I've also had to replace brand new ones after people installed them and connected the mute1, 2 or 3 wires. If those mute wires are connected to the wrong wire in the vehicle it can allow current to flow into the device causing it to damage itself damaging itself.
First, you will have to know if the vehicle has a facra or an iso norme build in it.
If it is a Facra, the wires to wires install is still possible but complicated and will necesarly need to get the diagram. Especially if the vehicle has an amplified system build in it. Or maybe optic fiber somewhere in the vehicle.
The vehicle has maybe an mute included into the autoradio, then the hot question you have is about the existing cable harness existing.
In that case I will advising you to get in touch with the manufacturer of the kit to get informed.
Does it show that the device is working properly in the device manager? You could try and use system restore to roll back windows to a time when the sound was working. Windows may have updated software and caused problem with audio. If you roll back the system to a time when you know the sound was working then the on board audio may be defective. Have you tried plugging in headphones in the headphone jack and check if there is sound? Are the sound properties muted? The laptop speakers or internal amp may have stopped working also.
The only way i can see of feeding two sets of speakers from the one pc would be to buy or make up a "splitter" audio lead .....i.e a 3.5mm stereo jack on one end connected to the pc with two lots of wiring going to 2 3.5 mm jacks. I don't know whether a store like Maplins would sell such a lead. Are you any good with a soldering iron??
It sounds like the phone mute is going on and off, but I'm just guessing because I don't know your grounds, speaker wire hookup configuration, etc. Look at the screen when the music cuts off and goes back on and if you see a little red phone with the cross through speaker symbol (aka mute) it's probably the phone mute feature which is supposed to be hooked up to bluetooth and mute the stereo when you get a call. Like I said I'm just guessing, but if so there's a brown wire in the back that needs to be hooked up.
