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?

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

2000 Silverado FM radio (only) no sound

You can try resetting the radio by removing power from it for a few minutes, reconnecting it and trying again. However, it sounds like an internal electronics problem that will either require a repair or replacement.

I get a picture but no sound. I bought the car with the dvd player already installed but no directions.

Hopefully you have a remote control for this unit. There is a FM select button. It's to turn on the FM modulator. When you press the button it will select different radio stations on the FM band. Once you select a station on the DVD, tune your vehicle radio station to the same and you will be able to hear the sound. Use this system to select the station with the best reception and less interference.
If no remote is available, there may be a FM button on the DVD player to perform the same function.

What happened with this unit, I mean it gives me sound on fm or am, however on cd, usb, aux option does not, even though it displays in the screen it is playing.

It sounds like it could be the sound chip. If your fm/am radio is playing sound then the internal amp is fine however CD/AUX functions use a separate sound chip. Have you wired it to an external amplifier?

How do I wire my tape and cd player to same speakers?

There are really only 2 options.

#1 Buy a fm modulated CD changer. This will allow you to play CD's over a FM frequency, and will use your factory radio as the output.

#2 Again you can buy a stand alone FM modulator with RCA inputs, and use an aftermarket CD/DVD player as a source.

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.

Jensen head unit VM9311TS no sound from CD

Should wire HU's Power Const to Amp's Remote On. Instead you wired HU's Power Antenna to Amp's Remote On. So the stock amp got triggered only in radio mode.

No sound from anything but FM

Disconnect whatever's connected to the blue wire behind the unit, and re-connect it to the blue/white wire instead.
