SOURCE: My JVC car stereo will let me listen to the radio

I had the same problem, it occurred after my battery had run flat. To fix it you need to reset the unit. To do this, remove the clip-off fascia, and on the main body of the unit there small hole, just to the left of the connector. Push a narrow pointed object such as a pen nib into this hold until you feel the click. The unit is now reset and should be working properly. You'll have to retune your saved radio stations, but the cd player should now be working.

SOURCE: My car stereo flashes the word "PROTECT"

If this happened while playing music at a little higher volume, you must check the speakers for short in coils. disconnect the speakers to see if the protect condition changes, if so check the speakers and wiring. If not then you must have blown up the output IC or a power shorting within the set. You will have to remove the pcb disconnect the power to the output IC to confirm the fault. Helpful I hope. Good day

SOURCE: I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.

Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

Music has become more mobile than ever before, as numerous devices can store and play music on-the-go. Companies have developed car audio decks that incorporate USB ports in the faceplate. This allows flash drives to be plugged into the deck, and music on the drive to be played. Flash drive format issues are minimal, considering nearly all flash drives are formatted in the FAT32 file system by default. FAT32 is readable by any operating system, or stereo deck with a USB por

Determine if the stereo deck in the vehicle is capable of playing music off a USB flash drive. Read the stereo deck user's manual, or inspect the deck faceplate for a USB port. Plug a USB flash drive into an available USB port on a computer. Check the drive to make sure there is enough available space for music files. Using Windows, double-click the desktop icon labeled "My Computer." Right-click the flash drive icon, and select "Properties." Capacity will be shown. Using Mac, click the flash drive icon once it appears on the desktop. Click "File" in the top menu bar, then click "Get Info." A dialog box appears, and capacity is listed. Drag and drop any desired music files onto the flash drive. Be sure the files are in .mp3 format. Although some stereo decks are capable of playing other music types, the .mp3 extension is universal and all decks will play it. Spend a short amount of time organizing the files into folders. Organize by genre, artist, or create mixed playlists. Selecting music while driving will become much less distracting. Close the drive window, and safely eject the flash drive from the computer. Plug the flash drive into the stereo deck of the vehicle. Select the USB port as the music source, via the stereo deck. Read the manufacturer's user manual if unsure of how to change the source. Adjust the volume, listen, and enjoy. Hope this helps.

When connecting iphone in usb port, display stays reading and nothing happens on dual xdm6350


ANSWER:
The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.

REASON:
The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer.
Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.

SOLUTION:
You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.

Good Luck!

How do I listen to music from my phone through my indash??


Most new model in-dash stereos have an auxiliary mini jack input. Connect a mini-jack cable to the auxiliary jack on your in-dash stereo (available at RadioShack or anywhere there are portable music player/smart phone accessories), and connect the other end to the headphone input on your iPhone/smartphone or player.

Change your stereo input to "aux" or "auxiliary" and Voila! Music will play from your car speakers.

Iphone bluetooth problems


Unfortunately, the iPhone doesn't (yet) have such capability built-in. But engaging the iPod function to listen to music/video audio while a call is taking place will allow you to hear said audio. Obviously this is not an ideal solution. If your phone is jailbroken, there is a tweak to enable music to be played through the bluetooth headphones but it is low quality.
