Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input

I have installed this deck and have an issue with playing audio from the usb slot. when I plug in, it recognizes my Zen Vision M player but I get an ''ERROR 2'' or ''ERROR 5'' when trying to play tracks. This also happens when using a flash drive. Some notes: * I have connected both yellow wires. The device gets power. * My mp3 player and flash drive both work on my computer and Xbox 360. * I have reset my deck. * The file format is mp3. I can burn the same tracks to a disk and they play fine. I don't believe the format is the problem I have this same problem i've been using this head unit for 4 months and my ipod worked fine with it now i am wiring in an amp and it comes up with error 5 when i put in the usb connector it never did this before any ideas?

It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

How do i get my clarion vz401 too play dvd videos from my USB


The Clarion VZ401 can only play audio (MP3 or WMA) files from a USB device. This is listed in the manual on both page 33 (USB Operations) and page 46 (Specifications). This unit can't play audio file with DRM and some USB drives may not be compatible with the device. It can play some videos from some IPod/IPhone models with the Clarion CCA-750 adapter. This is a USB to RCA composite stereo audio/video jacks cable. This feature isn't compatible with the Lightning connector or some versions of the iOS operating system. To view any other videos, you need to play them back on a device that can directly connect to the composite RCA audio/video ports (AUX In or AV In).

I hope this helps. The list of compatible IPod and IPhone models is available from Crutchfield on the VZ401 Details tab: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ix4f1cAUkb9/p_020VZ401/Clarion-VZ401.html . This tab also has a link to the manual; the direct link is http://d2stobyut4u5rx.cloudfront.net/ImageBank/v20150407084800/Manuals/020/020VZ401.PDF .

Can I make a USB port out of my laptop plug into an AC input on the Bose Series II Sound Dock so I can play music from my laptop?


What you want to do won;t work and can damage your laptop and or Bose.
If you want to play sounds from your laptop to your Bose, you need to plug an audio lead from the headphone socket on your laptop and connect the other end of this audio lead into the audio input on your Bose Sound Deck (if it has an Aux input).

Just installed my dxz385usb. powered up and got


Check to make sure that the speaker negative and positive leads are not touching. I had the same issue on a 97 maxima, and found the rear speakers so damaged that the (bare) leads on the speaker itself were touching the basket of the speaker, shorting the whole thing out. I disconnected the rear speakers and it started working.

Clarion vrx485vd wont play videos from iphone when connected


You need a composite video cable to the Clarion Video input. The usual ipod adapter is for audio only. If you have an AV ipod adapter and you still don't have video, the signal is not strong enough for the clarion to see it and you need a 12volt pre amp. you can find them online starting around 25. Hope this helps

I just got a Clarion DXZ385USB deck installed, but the screen does not appear blue as in the product pictures. It is dark and barely readable. Dimmer is turned off. Any ideas?


I didn't have to connect the illumination lead. If you have the battery wires(yellow) connected, the screen will light up pretty bright. When I connected the illumination wires(orange), I got the same dim screen light effect.
