Question about Dual XDM6830 CD Player

2 Answers

Stored settings and auto eject

The last few days when I turn my Dual player on it automatically ejects whatever CD is loaded. The unit also keeps losing all the stored power on settings (volume, bass, treble etc) along with losing all stored radio stations. The auto's digital clock hasn't reset, so it isn't a simple disconnect of the car battery. No other electrical problems with the car itself that I'm aware of. I've tried reseating the removeable faceplate, but it shouldn't lose the above settings even when that's removed. It plays fine, but of course I have to manually find radio stations and set manually the bass, treble etc each time I turn it on. Help?

    Probably correct, but I haven't been able to fix it yet. It's probably as simple as a loose connection between the Crutchfield wiring harness and the car's wiring. Hope to get to fixing it soon (if I can find the "keys" that allow one to extract the unit).

Hi Factus, Ampman is right about the two power sources. I wish to add that the you should check to see that the yellow wire is powered. You may want to run another yellow wire from the 12V always on terminal on your fuse block to the radio. This will eliminate any possiblilty of a problem in the wire between the radio and power source. The Red wire is powered only when the key is turned on.

Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...

Pioneer cdj 400 unit turns on, takes cd, cd spins and then just ejects it.

There are two reasons for this fault. The first one is with its disc loading mechanism. If the mechanism do not place the disc properly on to the reading chasis, this fault can be. It will spin for some time and will ejected automatically
The second one is with its optical pickup unit. If optical pickup unit do not read the disc; due to some fault to it [dust or dirt over the optical lens]. But in this case, there will be only "No Disc" display will be there. No automatic ejection will take place.
With your player, the first sated might be the case. The disc loading mechanism might need replacement.

It will not load cd or dvd it keeps coming up

The loading mech or poss. the read portion of the disc player is out of whac. In other words the cd dvd portion of your deck is defective and short of having it repaired by a techinition there isnt much you can do. Its a **** shoot but you may be able to unplug the unit let it set for a few minutes and plug it back in may rest the mech., but like I say its a **** shoot. Sounds like its time for a new deck or a trip to the repair center.

DN- S3500 Cd won't eject.


There might be a round access hole on the bottom of the case with a symbol near it.If it does , turn the screw down inside. Many CD players have a Panic hole like that.

have you tried to see if there is a reset button on your unit? if so then hold the reset button down for a few seconds and then try to eject the cd if that don't work then you might have to get the unit repaired also if you cross the yellow wire with the red wire behind your unit where it connects to your vehicle it will automaticly eject your cd when you turn it on.
