Troubleshooting/Need manual/ Need remote/Hook up problems

I am having trouble getting the speakers to work. The receiver worked in a bench test, but when installed in my school bus with New speakers/no sound. I drive a school bus, and had another stereo previously, and worked fine. I have no idea how to program or de-program . I cannot find a manual, for my Jensen MP-5010K CD Player, nor a remote. Can you please help me?

Hi Shelly

Find the security flat tool to release the radio from the dash.
Check the wires at the rear of receiver / amp

Disconnect from existing speakers and attach temporary other speaker.

Why does my KDC-258U say protect and won't do anything

Hi Nicholas,
This usually is an output problem.
  • There is a short in the unit, possibly the speakers.
  • Check all speakers connections to see if two wires are not touching each other, if possible check on both ends, at the receiver and at the speakers.
  • Try resetting the unit.
  • If nothing works, take it to a repair shop for further testing.
Here is a link to your receiver Manual of operation. Be sure to check out the Troubleshooting Section.
Good Luck!

DEH-P5800MP pioneer ...all things come up and operate except for sound out the speakers. Even the volume dial registers as well as the screen volume graphics.

Hi Michael,

We will start with the pdf manual.

Next you will check all the speaker connection's so they are biased +- +-. Ensure your ground is correct at the chassis of the receiver to the frame of the car.

Here is the manual from Manual Labs another look. Pioneer DEH P5200 Manual

There is a reset on the speaker output located in the manual. Perhaps your speaker impedance is above the receivers digital tolerance. Bench test the speakers with other in place of the working site. Most of all situations are oversights or happenings when closing up the job site.

Audio adjustments at your finger tips to check that by the book.

My pioneer deh-p840mp powers on and flips open, and seems to function fine with the exception of no sound going to all my door speakers and the bass to my subwoofers is a far sounding muffle even as I turn...

Un hook all your speakers that the deck is powering and hook them up one by one sounds like u have a shorted speaker or wire and the unit is going into protection.The best way to chk the speakers and wires is with an ohm meter . Check each speaker wire to ground and across the speaker and see iof you have any shorts. The next step woulk be to remove the unit and have it bench tested.

I cant get no sound out of my stero I have check my wiring four times and still nothing. The power comes on the cd player works it will tune to a station just no sound to my speakers. I can put my factory...

Chances are the amplifier in the cd player itself is burned out . I would try testing it either in another vehicle or take it to a stereo shop and have them test on their test bench.

Have a in dash jvc kd-sx750 cds player that won't power on

if you had the speakers hooked up wrong it would just make a crackling sound when it rubs on a surface. if your vehicle has a factory built in amplifier somewhere you may have to hook up the remote turn on wire to the wiring harness to tell it to turn on.
also make sure your illumination and dimmer wire are hooked up correctly if it doesnt display any images on the screen. and if for some reason you think its shutting off because of crossed wires maybe check the ground the batt and the ignition wire ,or the red black and yellow wires. usually when something major like those three wires get crossed it blows fuses in the car taillamp fuse stereo batt fuse ect. check all those .try resetting the deck of the car battery thats all i can think of now.

Attenuator light always on... no sound

That light that stays on is not for the "ATT", it is just an indication that the unit has power. The problem with your radio is most likely the power amp IC inside the radio if you are using speakers connected directly to the radio from the speaker wires on the harness. If you are using an external amplifier for your speakers the problem will be either the electronic volume control IC or a muting transistor that has gone bad or the external amplifier is defective. There is no way to know exactly what is wrong without doing a few checks on the radio with a multimeter on have the radio on a work bench to be able to open it up and check a couple of things inside of it.

If you have a multimeter and a power supply (to turn the radio on while on a work bench) I can guide you thru the troubleshooting process to help you figure it out. But you will also need to have a soldering iron, solder, and solder wick to be able to remove the bad part and put in a new part.

Let me know if you will require any more help from me.
