Question about Dual XDVD8181 Car Video Player

1 Answer

Volume starts out at full

This just started happening yesterday.  I start the car and the volume on the unit is up to 40, full blast!  I go to turn it down and it will not work, it goes to 39, 37 then back to 40.  If I turn the knob really slow I can get it down eventually.  Seems to happen only when it's cold but always after I just turn it off.  I tried resetting it by pressing the reset button for at least 3 seconds but that did not seem to help.  Anyone come across this before?

    I did look though but there is a fair chance I missed that.  I'm not sure I've ever put the volume at 40 though.  I rarely have it to 20.  However, I did manage to fix the problem; or at least it has not come back in at least a week or so.  Pushing in the reset and holding for three seconds did not work as stated but when I got to the screen that said to reset to factory settings, I gave that a try and it seemed to be the fix.  Not sure why resetting didn't but that did but no matter it worked.  Thank you for the reply, I will look in the book again (I have it right here) and see if I can find that section.

    edit yes, bottom of page 17 in the users manual says to set the start volume hold the button down for three seconds.

If you read the owners manual careful it tells you something about setting the volume at start up buy setting the volume to desired level then push in and hold a few seonds the volume knob and that volume should be reached every time you start your vehicle.

Volume on the WD 57733 turns up to full blast by itself. Cannot turn on the mute button using the remote.

volume button on your remote is stuck in the increase position. try another remote if possible or remove the remote batteries so you can atleast use the TV manually

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv on

I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

Navigon easy 40 no sound

The usual problem is the voice volume is turned down. This can happen when you are adjusting the volume down just as turn by turn instructions are starting; thus you don't notice it happened, or someone else did it or software glitch caused it or Murphy's law.
The way to fix it is turn vol up to max and set navigation and start driving. As you get to navigation points where you would expect the turn by turn instructions hit the up volume button. Keep trying it will only go up whilst instructions are being broadcast. Try using repeat last directions function to get a better shot at it.
This happened to me and this was the fix, odd but true.
Also see if there is a turn by turn vol level in settings.
Hope it works for you.

I have the xdvd710 when i start my truck up volumn is blastin every time!!!!! how do i get it to stop?????

The dual XDDVD710 RADIO has a volume memmory (it seems), it will go to the last volume setting that it was set to, not play to,(supposly to keep it from blasting you when you turn it on and you forgat u had the volume on blast).
To set it,
1 turn radio on,
2 turn the volume to desire Level you whant it to go when you turn it on (other Levels besside BLAST hopefully) ,
3 push the volume button in, that should do it.
Now you can play your music loud and should you forget that you had it on BLAST (to over come road noise) when you last played your radio, it should start at the preset volume.

Can't turn volume down!

Go into your sound devices from the control panel. You should be able to raise & lower the volume from there as well as putting the volume icon back into your system tray. Hope this helps.

My radio volume goes from full normal to full blast when it wants. I have to turn it off to save my speakers.

I would replace the radio. Especially if its stock. Look on and for a replacement. You should get a good deal between the two.
