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?

Re: Volume starts out at full

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.

Why does the volume go all the way up, even if it was down, when car is started?

Bad connections or just a faulty radio if it is under warranty you need to probably replace it happens to the best of us

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.

Set the volume to the desired start up volume then hold the knob in for about thirty seconds. It should beep. The radio will then start at that volume everytime you start your car.

I have a jensen vm9212n and the vilume is stuck on 40. the units base volume is set to 0 (but i have tried it on all setting variations), what happens is when the unit is switched on the volume is low for...

Disconnect your battery for a few minutes, then reconnect. This should completely reset your unit. If it still does it take it back, tell the people at wherever your bought the unit what it does and you should just get a new one cuz it's probably still under warranty... a tip for the future though, if you ever invest in a new unit go pioneer, i've used pioneer for years and its the best i've seen. hope this works for ya.

How to set start up volume control

I read another post that says that if turn on the unit and set the volume where you want it at startup, and then press in the volume knob until you hear it beep, that locks in the current volume as the startup volume. I just read this, so I haven't tried it myself yet. Good luck!

Volume resets to 26 every time unit powers on

Jensen Units donot remember your previous setting, its just one of the many reasons not to get one

Jensen vm9311 dvd indash volume is loud when i turn on car

Heres the best way to fix; Quote from manual "Programmable Turn-On Volume (Pg.12) This feature allows the user to select a turn-on colume setting regardless of the colume setting prior to turning the unit off. To program a specific volume level, push and hold the VOL/LOC/DV know (6) while the yellow volume bar is displayed on the screen. The unit will beep two times to confirm your turn-on volume setting." Ah i had the same problem. I turned to the manual and it worked for me :) Good Luck, Ern
