Have clarion cz200 receiver hooked it up it powers up and everything just fine but no audio...checked everything and it seems fine but no audio am i missing something? its in a 1981 chevrolet c10 pick up

With this particular unit you have a Tele mute which is cell phone related to mute volume when your cell phone rings if this is grounded then you have a problem.

1) Verify that the speakers of the vehicle are correctly hooked up , you can test your speakers by taking a 9 volt battery and touching the positive and negative leads of the speaker wires (make sure they are disconnected for radio) you should hear a click.

2) Take a volt/ohm meter set it to ohms touch the leads together this is continuity. Next touch the wire leading to the speaker to be tested and place the other lead of the meter to the bare metal of truck. If the needle pegs all the way over you have a shorted wire.

3) If using a seperate amp to power the speakers you need to insure that all connection to the amp are made properly and grounds are correct.

here is a link to clarions website to provide a troubleshooting manual.

One other thing to check is the center channel balance as if it is biased you need to adjust it.

There are only a few simple things that can cause no audio output
1) Volume not correct
2) Audio output connections incorrect
3) Speaker wires are bad
4) damaged speakers
5) tele mute is grounded
6)Speaker wires insulation is cut and grounding out or is not making a good connection
7) worst case Radio is defective ( it happens)

My clarion dxz385usb has no sound.

Check to make sure exposed wires aren't grounding themselves out. I just had this problem and after 2 days of re-wiring and re-checking almost every wire I finally found the culprit. The Remote wire from my amp has become exposed and grounded itself out. Unit worked fine, same problems you are having.

Display malfunctions/no working functions

Remote turn on lead shorted to audio intterupt lead? I would just hook up power and ground to the 9833 and see if problem goes away. If not is must be internal to the 9833. If problem goes away i would double check wiring. Good luck that is a sweet cd player.

Problem with radio in vw sharan

First remove the unit so as to access the power and ground leads. Then with a voltage testers ground lead attached to the head units ground wire operate the unit as normal until the shutdown happens. Then test both power supply leads for 12+ vdc (one is a constant 12+ volts memory feed and the other is a switched 12+volts for operating functions)
If ether of these do not register 12+ volts then you need to find a different power source. If they do register 12+ volts then the problem is in the head unit. In which case if you are emotionally attached to that unit then have it serviced, if not replace it.

Note: A replacement may be cheaper...

Good luck

CD player wont come on was doing weird things

You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

Windshield wiper issue: Check C1002, 1003, and 1004 under your hood.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

Let me know if you need more assistance =)

Kenwood KDC-MP202 sound turns off when headlights are turned on

just solved a similar problem on my car i bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;

ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart) to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange) edit.gif

No sound

Check your remote turn-on lead connection - you may have a factory amplified system which isn't getting turned on, which would explain the no sound.

NO Power

Hi. You need to check a few things. make sure you have power on both the red and yellow wire with the key one. If only one has power the radio will not work. also make sure that you have a good ground connection on the black wire.. if nothing works yes you probhably have a bad radio. the dual brand radios are notorious for poor solder connections on the mainboard due to the way they build thier cheap circuit boards..

Alpine car cd player has no volume

It's possible that you have a shorted speaker wire. If one of the speaker wires is pinched, grounded or shorted it will cause the deck's internal amplifier to shut down. The easiest way to check is with a multimeter's resistance function. Remove the CD player and unplug it. Set your multimeter for "resistance" or "continuity". Attach the black probe to chassis ground; you can use the black ground wire in the deck's harness, clean dash metal, or the outer ring of your cigarette lighter. Use the red probe to test each of the speaker outputs in the harness: white, gray, green and violet. If you find a speaker wire that shows any continuity with chassis ground, then that's the cause of the problem. A speaker with a damaged voice coil may also cause the deck to shut down. To test this, probe the positive and negative leads of each speaker and test the resistance between them. For example, to test the left front speaker you'd put the red probe on the white wire and the black probe on the white/black wire. Each speaker should read a minimum of 3 ohms of resistance. If you get a lower reading then it might be causing your problem. If you don't find a problem with any of the speaker wires, then chances are the deck's internal amplifier has failed.
