Im guessing you have an amplifier if not check the cd player ground " AMP GRD" means amp ground is faulty. In the event that you do have an amplifier check that ground wire as it's most likely the problem.

CD will not play. The CDs goes in and out fine and looks like it is playing according to the display. I can change songs, fast forward and reverse through the songs according to the display but nothing...


Do you have the radio hooked up to an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amp on. The antenna remote wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

What color wier do i hook up my amp to the head unit?


The only wire that you should hook up from the amp to your head unit is the remote power wire which is the blue wire on the wiring harness for the head unit. Sometimes they are blue with a white stripe. Hope this helps.

Sub not working after installing the jensen vm9022 deck


reinstall the factory radio use a digital volt meter to see witch wire supplies voltage when radio is turned on and off, note placement on harness then verify this wire is hooked up on the output side aftermarket harness you may have to jump it to get the maps to turn on. tip you can carefully pull unused wire from harness example (dimmer wire orange white) and move it to the position needed to keep it a clean install .

Stereo hook up no sound


After all connections are completed correctly - Press the RESET button. The RESET button on the housing must be activated with either a ballpoint pen or similar pointed object. The RESET button is to be activated for the following reasons:
• Initial installation of the unit after all wiring is completed.
• Some the function buttons do not operate.
• Error symbol appears on the display.

I had this problem as well. On my harness was a wire for connecting the factory amp. You have to connect the Automatic Antenna wire to the Factory Amp Turn On wire. Should be a blue wire to a blue wire with a white stripe.

No audio from cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.
