Your probably driving your amp with the power antenna lead, not the accessory lead. it's easy to do, they're both blue.

When head unit is on tuner everything is fine when on ipod or cd mode there is no sound ...i have taken off the face and reset the unit and still tuner sound on ipod and cd sound off


are you using an amplifer? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire instead of the blue/white wire to turn the amp on. the blue is antenna remote and turns of when it is not in tuner mode. the blue/white is amplifier remote.

Ipod worked with my pioneer deh-p3700mp before


this works on some other pioneer head units i encountered it may work on yours.
Shut it off and hold the function button until the options appear then you can scroll through and change a bunch of settings including the aux input

Subwoofer in my car works only on tuner


I had the same problem. most radios have a power antenna wire and an amp turn on wire it sounds like your amps are being turned on by the power ant wire that loses power when you put a cd in try swapping the blue with blue and white wire this should solve it

My Aux-in wont work


did you turned aux function?

turn off your player by pressing and holding volume controler.
press and hold longer (~5 sec) it again to turn it on (you should see 'tuner' in the lcd).
push up arrow to select aux and right/left to turn it on.

now you can connect your ipod and select aux (as ussual switching between tuner/cd player/aux)

cheers :)

Alpine 9885 - no sound with cd's or ipod


have you fixed it yet? if not try this. your car probably has factory amplified speakers. hook up the remote wire AND the power antenna wire to the blue factory amp wire and it should work just fine

VM9311TS Subwooofer problem


you wired the remote wire up to the solid blue wire on the dvd player.....you need to put it on the blue wire with a white stripe......that should make it come on for everything....the solid blue wire is if you have motorized radio antenna. it turns it on
