Have you checked the ground??? power doesent mean anything if there is no way for the unit to connect to ground.... also some decks have a little reset button that you can press with a pen tip. I am not sure if this deck has that but it worth a look.

First of all, if you connect iginition and constant to the same wire, it sometimes will not work, make sure they are hooked up to dedicated wires in the car. Also once they are connected and the car is on, press the source (src) button or am/fm button. Check the fuse on the back of the stereo by the wire harness too. Also make sure yellow is on constant and red is on ignition.

Mitsubish 10 cd will not power off

You need to check both of the main power wires. The 12V constant is almost always yellow and fused, and this connects directly to the battery, and functions as a memory for time, radio presets, etc. The Red wire is the 12V switched, and it needs to be hooked to an accessory wire or the ignition wire, whichever your preference. The 12V swithced is the prompt for the radio to turn on and function, and if it is connected to the battery, the radio will never go off unless turned off physically.

How to connect a pioneer super tuner to a 91 honda accord

With a DC voltage tester, check the two power leads for 12+ volts and proper operation, and be sure the unit is properly grounded.

The two power leads are,

1.Constant feed: which should be connected to an un-switched power source that delivers continuous
power to the units memory.

2.Switched feed: which should be connected to a switched power source controlled by the vehicles ignition switch.

Before installing in dash check unit for proper operation.

Good luck

Unit will not turn on

This seems like you have accidently rewired part of your electrics. You may have wired the power wire into the wrong place, and also wired your electric door locks into your accessories. YOU NEED TO BACKTRACK. Find you doorlock wiring and get it back to a constant power supply. Best bet is to wire your power wire of unit to cigarette lighter by splicing the wires or jacking the outlet at the back. Here is a guide to install your stereo. Following those steps and see if you went wrong somewhere.

Power on problem for XD7500

Hi. You need to check a few things. make sure you have power on both the red and yellow wire with the key on. If only one has power the radio will not work. If the red and yellow wires are switched it can also affect the way the redio operates. One is constant power for memory the other is key on power so the radio knows to shut off with the ignition key off. also make sure that you have a good ground connection on the black wire.. if nothing works yes you probhably have a bad radio. the dual brand radios are notorious for poor solder connections on the mainboard due to the way they build thier cheap circuit boards..
