No Sound for AM/FM Radio

I can no longer get sound with my AM/FM band in this player. When I put in a CD/DVD it will still play fine with sound. Do I have any options? Is there some button that may have got pressed by mistake?

Re: No Sound for AM/FM Radio

Ensure that the antenna is still attached. It will auto-mute if no signal is attainable.

I can hear sound out of the player for the radio but not when i put in a cd I can't hear. I tried with one cd or 5 CDs.

If you have audio from the radio, all of the internal components are working, such as the power amp. If the CD section is not working, a switching relay, or connection may be at fault. If a read head is misaligned, you cannot pick up data from the CD and communicate with the audio out either. If the CD's are CLONES (copies) they too may not work. There are many reasons, and that mentioned are only a few.

2008 cadillac 6 disk dolby dvd/cd sound system will not play or eject disk

Alien is right, pull the Radio Fuse, then put it back in and eject the CD/DVD. Happens to me sometimes with burned DVDs, seems like the player is picky on the CD/DVD media. Rebooting the device (by pulling the fuse) is the only way to eject it.

To add to my request a manual for AWA 17cm DVD/CD/AM-FM Television Micro System

An FM transmitter is a portable device, which converts a specific audio output into an FM radio signal. It can be plugged into a CD player, satellite radio system, headphone jack, or a portable media player. One common use of an FM transmitter is to play music from an Mp3 player through the speakers of a car.

Can't figure out what channel to put radio on to get sound for dvd in car

The only way to hear it through the car radio is if it has a built in fm modulator installed.

Usually the car manufacturers use the lowest (or close to it) number on the dial. 88.7...88.9 etc.

On some factory installed units - you must press SOURCE for the DVD sound.

If it is aftermarket - an FM transmitter is almos alwyays part of the unit - and you'll have to find the proper channel.

Stick in a music CD, and then scan the stations manually.

Some FM Modulators use only 4 selectable channels... and some can use any channel.

No sound but plays the dvd fine

I think this is due to wrong Audio settings.
Try to change audio setting as Stereo/Right or Left/5.1 from the Audio setup of the Menu

Lost sound on DVD

I have a CH-DVD 300--not sure how different it is from the 200, but I have the same problem. Putting in an audio CD seems to do the trick, and is less hassle than unplugging (which also works for me).

Random no audio

I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.
