Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Yesterday I plugged in a cord from my the CD/AUX spot to my MP3 player as usual, and it shut my MP3 player (which was fully charged) down. I thought my MP3 player was fried, but was able to reset it. I didn't try it in the car today. Instead, I listened to a cd on the way to work and on the way back home (20 minutes each way). I ejected the disc when I returned home and it was extremely hot. The front of the cd player was hot. I have a 2008 Chevy Aveo, which I bought new. Up until now I have had no problems whatsoever. When I drive, I always use the CD player or plug in my MP3 player. I don't use the radio. What do I need to do?

    I might be overreacting, but I've removed cds frequently without them being HOT (not just very warm) and these were new cds. Yes, that was the first time the MP3 shut down like that ... maybe it was a kind of safety feature. The fact that it happened exactly when I inserted the other end of the cord into the MP3 player caught my attention. I don't know that one thing has enything to do with the other, but the timing was curious.

    Unless you can think of anything else, I will check with the dealer on Monday. This may sound stupid, but is there any danger of it catching fire if I use my cd player for cds?

    Okay, I'll let you know what the dealer says.

    I'm new to FixYa. Do I leave this "open" to be able to respond, or do I "Accept Solution" at this time?

Generally these systems will get fairly hot. It is quite normal. Check out another car and see how hot its system warms up and compare it to yours. I think the mp3 player turning off may just be a fluke. Did it only happen once? I think you may be overreacting but if it feels excessively hot, I would take it to the dealer since it should still be under warranty and have them take a look at it or possibly even take it to a 3rd party audio system store and let them take a look since I can't be sure of it being a problem since I'm not there. Sorry I can't be more help, but I would be glad to answer any further questions that you may have about this.

    It shouldn't start on fire unless it is getting so hot that you are burning yourself and then still unlikely. It may be pulling too much amperage from the battery, but please let me know what you find after going to the dealer.

    you can leave it open so I can respond, if you accept, then I can't respond.

How to use aux in facility in honda city zx vtec

It is an auxiliary input used to connect mp3 players, or anything that can connect with that type of cable, so you can play them through your car radio. All you do is determine the type of cord you need, (usually 1/8" phono plug), and connect it from your device to the radio. Then you tune the radio to the AUX input.

I dont understand how to play mp3 player on my kenwood cd player.I have the cord to hook it up to my kenwood radio but i dont know how to get the mp3 to play.

Just plug the cord into the front of the cd player where it says "AUX" and then plug the other end of the cord into the headphone / line out jack on any ipod or mp3 player then select "AUX" instead of CD and the sound will come through the system

Ok...I have an Alpine CDE-9845 and i wish to play my ipod by using an aux cord but i have no clue where to plug it in at


You will first need an audio cable that has a 3.5mm male end on both sides of the cable.

You will plug in one end into your mp3 player, and the other end into the 3.5mm audio jack on the front of your cd player. On rare occasions its on the back of the cd player.

Then instead of putting your cd player on the radio, or cd, the other option will be Aux. Start your mp3 player up and you should be able to hear it on your car audio system.

This is the standard setup for running an mp3 player through your car stereo. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

I have plug my sansa mp3 player in the teac mc and it seems dead.

there may be a fuse in there or even on the back of the teac. if not on the back, then have to take the cover off, and just follow where the ac cord comes in and trace up to the switch, you may find a glass fuse there somewhere thats blown. In which case replace with an exact duplicate. (please be unplugged if you try this)
