Can't get into AUX source

I tried to input my iPod through the aux inputs in the back. The receiver will not chance to AUX source. I tap the source button and it cycles, Tuner-CD-Standby, but no AUX. If the iPod is playing I can hear it in the rear speakers when in "Tuner" mode, and still hear the radio in the front and rear speakers at the same time. Really weird. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Can't get into AUX source

Try putting the unit in standby via the src button, before then enter the menu and select or switch on aux1...then press menu again to store should then have an aux option via the src button when the unit is next activated.

Re: Can't get into AUX source

Are you sure it is an AUX input? According to the Manufacturers Specs, the AUX, is an optional accessory. There is a Pre-Amp connection, which would be an output, hence causing the problem you are having. Best of Luck.

Can't get auxiliary to work on Pioneer Mosfet Head unit 50x4

you have to turn the AUX input on through the function menu which can be accessed by following these steps

1. with the unit on. press and hold the source button unitl the unit turns of (or goes into demo mode, which is fine)

2. depending on the model that you have, you will have to press and hold the
(volume button or the audio button), until a menu is displayed.

3 . toggle through until you find AUX 1 and AUX 2. i would turn them both on and see which one you have plugged into, then you can go back and turn the other off.

4. once you have change it to ON. press the source button to turn on. the aux option should now be in your source options.

5. also, while on AUX, you can go into the audio settings and turn up the SLA (sound level adjustment) to +4

hope this helps

I believe you need the Alpine KCA-410C - Ai-Net multi-changer/versatile link adapter before you can input from an external source directly.

MP3, IPOD, CD doesn't appear when I press "Source"


If you read your owner's maunal, page 26, the USB is designed for a flash drive (up to 4GB), not an Ipod.
If you would like to play your iPOD, purchase the IPC008 (Ipod Lead) and you're done!

Switching on the auxiliary input

According to the manual, the AUX input is an optional accessory.

Check to see if the RCA jacks are labeled. I believe they are pre-outs only.

Best of Luck.

Connect ipod to cd player wit built in aux input.


Turn unit off by holding the Source (volume knob) button until power is off.

Now, hold down the Function button (FUNC) until the unit turns on. You will now be in the Initial Settings menu, a special menu. Press the Function button (FUNC) again until you see the word AUX, press up to enable it, then press the Source (volume knob) button until you see AUX. It works now, congratulations.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
