I have now gone through 3 of these units and encountered that exact same issue. The first came from a Tweeter store, the second from Ebay, and arrived with a CD stuck in it (I returned it), and the third from Ebay, ad that one just broke last week. It clicks when I try to load a CD. The only reason that I kept buying them is because I have an old BMW, and the black face and orange/amber illumination match my interior exactly. I am trying to contact Clarion, but the 'support' link on the site is not active. I tried to remove the stuck CD from the first unit to no avail. Basically, it is broken, and even if you remove the CD, the load/eject mechanism is broken and you can no longer play a CD in that unit.

SOURCE: Clarion PF2851B-A car radio will

Is this a stock OEM radio (came with the car when it was new)? I don't recognize the model number and that may be why. I work at an authorized Clarion service center and have never seen that model number.

If your radio has a reset button you can try that. The reset button is usually a very small (about 1/8 inch across) circular button that is not labed and can only be pressed with the tip of an ink pen or something similar.

It is not likely that this will help, but it is worth trying.

You may also need to enter the security code it has one, sometimes resetting a radio will cause this to happen. If you do reset the radio, you will need to re-enter all your preset stations and adjust the clock again because it sets everything back to factory defaults.

If this does not help, you will need to take it in to a service center to get it repaired. I have been repairing car audio systems for nearly 18 years and can tell you with certainty that there is no easy fix for these type of problems except a reset which rarely works.

It could have a bad voltage regulator, a bad motor in the mech, a bad sensor, or any number of other things that can cause your current problem.

If this is a OEM factory radio, you would save money by just buying a new aftermarket radio that will have more bells and whistles than the factory radio normally has, and a decent radio would only cost about $100 to $175. A repair of a factory radio usually costs more than that.

If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer them for you, just respond with another post to this thread.

If you have found this free information helps and gives you the information you need to make an informed decision, a rating of "FixYa!" would be the proper rating since there is no easy fix for this problem.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Dave

Can anyone explain why my clarion vx402ais asking for a password after the battery was disconnected


I presume it is a car radio? If it is, you will need the anti theft code. If the radio is factory fitted, it should be in the handbook or your car dealer will be able to get it for you.
It is stored in an Eeprom, not using a Cmos battery as someone suggested.

This feature is for anti-theft, if there was an easy way to "unlock" it then any thief could steal your radio and reset the password. There is no hack here, you have to call Clarion. This is from the manual;
Note:
• If you have lost your Personal Code, please
contact Clarion customer service
I've never been through this but they might ask you to send it in. Regardless of it being some system error and not your error. Although if the radio does have a glitch like you said then sending it in might be a good thing.
