Question about Pioneer CDX-FM687 6-Disc CD Changer

Cd changer has power but no output to stereo

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-Type with a pioneer cd changer in the trunk. There is a "CD" button on my dash to switch to the cd player. When I push this button, it acts as if there is no changer attached. Is there any thing I can do to narrow down the problem?

Re: cd changer has power but no output to stereo

Did it work when you remove/insert the magazine? if not maybe a fuse.

Trying to fit a jaguar cd changer in the boot of my 2002 S type. Power and fibre optics, connected power at unit it ejects but the car doesn't recognise,press CDC nothing happens.....HELP please

You need to get the head unit programmed through the OBD connection to accept the cd changer, the unit does not know the changer is fitted........a jaguar main dealer or an independent jaguar garage will be able to do this for you, about half to one hour labour charge.

CDs sound distorted

If you search on most good car stereo web sites, they will ask for your vehicle information, and will only show you head units that will fit your dash. You can also buy custom dash plates to fit non-OEM shaped units.

I tried connecting a ipod cord in the back of the recievers ports and the volume can't be controlled by the reciever, is there a aux input option for this reciever or is it to old.

How did you "connect" an Ipod to the receiver? If you plugged in RCAs then you were probably plugging into the pre-amp outputs of the stereo. There is an aux option from pioneer (CDRB10) which plugs into the blue squarish plug on the back. I think its a CDRB20 if you ever wanted to add a CD changer as well.

Pioneer DEH-P3100UB + hyundai tiburon 2003 se installation... possible or not?? :S

it is possible to install any stereo in any car.
power,switched power,memory and the speakers.
some older cars had one speaker lead common grounded to the car.
todays stereos have a floating output,and you will short the amplifier if you hook up the speakers to that type.
make sure the speaker leads are independent of the body ground.

Cd changer

You can use any CD changer that has an FM modulater. You would listen to it by tuning in to a station on your tuner.

The sales person at any place that sells car stereos would be able to show you the right type of changer.

If your radio has a cd changer controller built into it, you need to check with the dealership to find out what the OEM changer would be. But a FM modulator will work with any car stereo.

Kenwood, Pioneer, JVC, Clarion, Alpine all sell FM modulator CD changers. I would not personally buy any of the cheaper no name brands. The money you save on the cost is not worth the difference in quality. Panasonic is a very good brand for car stereos but not home stereos, but I don't know if they make CD changers. if they do, that would be a good brand.
