So you're saying you have two different turntables and that both of them are dead? Could have a power supply issue or even just a power switch bad. For more information, please visit my website at Thank you.

01 tacoma radio wont power on

Hi Tony.

Toyota really could use some help in making manuals be a little less insulting and useless. that said, I found this
look on page 10 (as seen by a PDF viewer, manual page 288),, Down in the fine print, it lists the last thing hooked to Fuse 20 as 'car audio system' . There's a picture there to guide you to where fuse 20 is.

Good Luck!

2003 hyundai tiburon dual din JVC touch screen deck installation issues

Hello, Chose another powersource for your device. It is possible that you are tied into a circuit breaker that is constantly resettting. Maybe use an MP3 player for the trip and work on it when you get back.

Same thing happened to my 2003 silverado

Yes, you will need to ether clean out the fuseable link that you were just playing with or replace it. It is possible that it might be corroded.

Good luck

I had to disconnect the power wire to my KDCpmp435U, there is power going to the stero but the deck will not power up

are you 100 percent positive that there is power going to the stereo, i have installed for years and sometimes i suprise my self on little things i miss,
check the fuse at the back of the deck make sure the fuse didn't pop
and check the fuse in your car fuse box to make sure you didnt pop that one either, write me back if these still arent the issues

2000 escort - tuner does not work but CD and TAPE are fine

most likely is the radio itself- typical ford radio... best bet is look in a junkyard for a new radio- there are no fusible links- there usually is just one 10amp fuse in the inside fusebox. but if the cd& tape players work it is in the stereo itself. hope this helps and good luck

No power

With a voltage meter, open the table back up to where the fuse is under the on off switch. With the table plugged check the voltage meter check the incoming ac prongs for 20V. Also, the 1210 has a voltage switch under the platter to the left
 a little hole for which a flat head screwdriver is needed to switch the voltage. If you live in the UK or outside od the USA it should be on 220V, IF YOU LIVE IN THE USA, IT SHOULD BE ON 110V. If your electricity is 110/120 and its on 220, the transformer is most likely fried. If your electricity is 220V and its set to 110V , then its not getting enough current. Its possible the transformer could have gone bad, with no smell of burn or sign of damage. Also, check board with all the capacitors on it around the motor, check fopr any leakage...

If service Technics for 15 years and sometimes i'll se voltage issues I've never seen before.....

Swapped out players and new one doesnt power up

Ok. recheck your harness. WIth some brands yes the harness will plug into the radio from a different manufacturer but recheck the wire colors. They usually change pins out. For example whats power on a particular pin may be a speaker wire on another brand unit with the same style plug... so get the harness that came with this radio. Check the pin location and wire color on that pin to the other harness. I almost guarantee that there is a difference. Hopefully you didnt damage your new cd player... let me know how it goes...
