Vrv785bt- No sound except tuner

So i just installed my new head unit today and soon realized that i had no sound on DVD/CD, ipod, or bluetooth settings but plays the tuner fine. It will read the the disks and show that the ipod id playing but no sound! The wierd thing is that if you are playing to tuner and switch to CD/DVD it will play fo about two seconds and then no sound. This is my first insallation of an in-dash receiver and was told that if you just ground the "e brake" wire that it will override the system. I am obviously very unframiliar with this ebrake wire thing and was hoping for some adivce. Do you think that it could have something to do with this not being propertly hooked up. Any help would be greatly appriciated!
Thanks

Correct, I had the same problem, I assume that this would work for both the NZ709 as well as other clarion systems that only play tuner (radio) and not USB, DVD, Bluetooth, or any other audio. THis is only with an Amp installed. I followed this advice connected up the Blue Power antenna wire to the Blue White remote wire and that was it.

I have no sound with the ipod or dvd but the fm stero works. I took this out of my old truck and it all worked in there but once i installed it in my new car there is no sound when playing dvd/cd or when...


it sounds like you are going through an external amp. try using the blue/white wire instead of the blue wire. the blue wire is antenna remote turn on. the blue/white is amplifier remote turn on. the blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

are you using an amplifer? if so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire instead of the blue/white wire to turn the amp on. the blue is antenna remote and turns of when it is not in tuner mode. the blue/white is amplifier remote.

How do i use my ipod on it


If this is a cd changer type, then they have a connection that plugs in the cd changer port and straight to your ipod. Or you can get a nice little wireless fm transmitter off of ebay brand new for $1 plus shipping. You also can use the bluetooth if you have the correct options.
  1. Choose a Bluetooth car radio that meets your personal style and lifestyle. Search manufacturers' Web sites that provide customers with detailed information about Bluetooth car radios, including price and compatibility with other wireless devices.
  2. Step 2 Go to a gadget or automobile shop and scan their Bluetooth-enabled car radios. Compare the units by brand, style, functions, and features. Check out the latest release such as a Bluetooth DVD/CD/MP3 player.
  3. Step 3 Target only units that fall within your budget. While you consider the price, make sure the quality doesn't suffer. Always look for a cheaper but competitive unit and the one that is compatible with other accessories such as car audio speakers and CD players.
  4. Step 4 Test the unit before making a purchase. Make sure it is free from malfunctions. Always buy a product with a warranty in case it develops problems, and keep your receipts for future reference.

MEX-BT5700U, no sound in speakers in CD source, tuner source OK.


What many people do on this model is connect the remotes wires improperly. Use the solid blue wire for the amp and the blue with white stripe for the connection to the car.

Is it possible: change cd changer input to ipod input


I'm afraid not. The best advice I can give you is to get a Radio Tuner Adapter for your I-pod. Most prople will tell you to use a Cassette adapter, and this is fine. However it sounds like you want the best sound you can get from your I-pod. The tuner adapter is the way to get it. You will get a better sound frequency range from your factory tuner than your cassette. The factory Head unit in your Sable isn't bad, just changing the factory speakers will make a huge diffrence. Good Luck, and don't forget to vote.

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.
