How to install?What wires hook up to where?

I've had this unit setting for a long time because I tried hooking it up in the house using a spare battery I had.Thought I knew how to hook up and when only the face lit up I thought it must have gotten damaged when it was pulled out of a friends car.He swore it wasn't.AndI know it worked just the day prior of removing. Well I just stowed it away and now I'm thinking I just didn't test it right.I know the speaker wire hook ups.It's the power wires I need info on.Red,Yellow,Black.Please any help would be great. tx

Re: How to install?What wires hook up to where?

Hi, Re the power wires - black is ground (or - of battery), red goes to the + terminal of the battery and the yellow would go to the Acc in the ignition switch of a car. If you are hooking it up on a spare "battery", you have to twist together the red and yellow and connect both to the + terminal. Good luck and kind regards.

How can i make my cd770 unit display time consistently? (bought car at auction, so no remote, no manual!!)

Not sure from description if you've got it wired right, and I am assuming you have most of it working but can't get the time to stay in memory. Are you sure you have the memory power wire going to a constant power source? 1 power wire ( power with key on or in accessories mode) will run player and the other which needs constant power would be for memory and time. Almost sounds like that is missing. Some units will not run at all without both, where others will work, but not store anything such as time, and needs to be reset every time it's turned back on, if that memory wire isn't hooked up.

I have a 1988 ford t bird i bought the wiring kit and installed the after-market stereo and everything works expect the sound. and i ve tried other stereos and double checked the wiring and still no audio.

Check under the passenger's seat for a factory amp. If the blue wire on the aftermarket head unit (accessory/antenna) supply isn't hooked into the power line for the factory amp. You'll get nada. It's usually a bump in the carpet if it's not visible. Look for a spare wire in the dash that originally went to it.

Installing a new stereo. I am trying to install a ''JVC KD-R210'' in my wifes 1985 BMW 535i, replacing a Sony CDX-R79 and in the trunk is a Pioneer 12 disc cd changer that was hooked up to the system. This...

There is a line level converter that would need to be purchased to that you can get the front speakers to work with the amplifier. The stereo already has rca jacks for the rear speakers. You can connect these straight to the amplifier for it to work. Bes sure that you use the blue wire to connect to the remote turn on for the amplifiers. Once you get the line level converter you will connect the wires and connect the converter using the RCA jacks. The question would be how was the 12 disc changer connected to the system. Would need more information on the changer in order to help with that component.

Blaupunkt montreal cd 34 Sound Shutoff

I don't think it has a low wattage setting. Have you tried hooking up another deck to see if the problem carries over to the second head unit. Most usually when a head unit shuts off like that, you first worry is true. Are you using the factory wiring in the vehicle?? May I also suggest pulling the head unit out and hooking up all four channels using after market wiring. By using this troubleshooting method is would give you a definate answer on your wiring problem. If The problem persist, then it could be the head unit itself is going bad. Also, one last thing, even if you think the speakers are fine, if one of the speakers is malfunctioning, then it would also cause the player to kick into safe mode.

As long as you have connected the ground(black) try adding one wire at a time to the live(red). If possible try connection each wire one at a time to the power line and then both together. If nothing has blown(fuses) and the unit starts working then you can try by trial & error method the remaining wires. You should be able to figure out which wire is required and if there are any extra wires like cellular phone(mute) and then decide whether to connect them or keep them open.....sodeep

Stereo hook up no sound

After all connections are completed correctly - Press the RESET button. The RESET button on the housing must be activated with either a ballpoint pen or similar pointed object. The RESET button is to be activated for the following reasons:
• Initial installation of the unit after all wiring is completed.
• Some the function buttons do not operate.
• Error symbol appears on the display.
