By looking online I see there is a aux input for your system. Get a cable with a stereo mini plug on each end. This is the end you find on MP3 player headphones. Plug the cable in and choose Aux with your source button . You will have to turn up your volume on the mp3 player some, maybe half way....and could be higher depending on the unit. The RCA volume must be used also, set it to at least 25% and give it a try. Adjust MP3 player input down as needed.
It may not take the iPod directly if it doesn't have a dock built in, but you can always connect the iPod to an available input with a suitable cable. You'll need a cable with a plug to fit the iPod headphone jack (a 1/8-inch stereo plug) at one end, and probably RCA plugs at the receiver end. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what you're looking for. If you have an iPod dock, they often have audio output jacks for connecting to your receiver. You may need a cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
There should be two RCA input jacks, (L & R), for audio input on the Elan. Use a cable with an 1/8 inch plug on one end that splits to two RCA plugs. Plug the 1/8 plug into the earphones jack and the RCA plugs into the audio input RCA jacks on the Elan. Set the iPod volume low so you won't distort the input signal.
Using the iPod AV Cable
Step 11Use the Apple iPod AV cable. This plugs into the RCA ports on your TV or VCR. This is by far the easiest method.
Step 22Connect the AV cable into your iPod. Plug the small end into the iPod where the earbuds would go.
Step 33Connect the red RCA plug. This goes into the right audio input of the television or VCR. The colors should match.
Step 44Connect the white RCA plug. This plugs into the left audio input of your TV. Connect the yellow RCA plug. This goes into the video input of your TV.
Step 55Begin playing a video on the iPod.
I believe that you are lucky since the "P" in the model number of the deck indicates and extra input source on the rear of your deck. This is used right now by your changer. You need to replace the changer with the Ipod and you are done. Stereo mini to dual rca's and you are done.
Actually, what I think gbaity is doing is utilizing his IP(Interactive Pioneer)-Bus port in the back of the DEH-P3000, which is an input port designed to allow the deck to use an external multi-disk CD changer. All you need is the CD changer, then change the input source from your deck to "M-CD".
There are folks on eBay and other places that sell a cable that pluggs into that very same port. They are designed to allow the unit to accept input through the IP-Bus from an ipod or just about any low-level input that you can pass through the RCA jacks. I have the same deck, and also just purchased an ipod cable for the IP-Bus, and it also does not work. I have been told that I need to switch the "M-CD" input source to "AUX" as the input, but I do not know how to do that. pressing the input source button only displays "CD", "M-CD", and "FM/AM". Does anyone know how to add "AUX" to the choices or otherwise show us how to make these cables work? Thanks - TomR
Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier.
If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
