FM transmitter says no device?

I recently purchased this FM transmitter, and it works fine if I use the headphone jack. However it also says it will play through the USB port or a memory card. I would like to use the USB so that my songs are displayed on the LCD screen, and so that my ipod charges at the same time. However, when I plug it into the USB nothing happens, it won't play, and the screen continues to read "no device" I have tried using my ipod and also my phone with two separate cords and neither of them work. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Problems with Headphone and USB plugs

I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too... Anyone have a fix??

Hi Dennis,

One of persons I know had the same problem, now all you need to do is reset the player and hopefully it would be fine , please follow the below instructions :-

You would find one reset button on the front panel, to be precise It's located between the forward button and the "1" button.

All you need to do is insert a pen and press that button and make sure that the unit is turned on at that time,

Then you will find that the unit will do blank or dark for some seconds and then back on

Also remember to always press the eject button before if you remove your USB
drive as it would flash remove signal , this is a safety norm that you need to follow.

Hope this helps ...:)

To add to my request a manual for AWA 17cm DVD/CD/AM-FM Television Micro System


An FM transmitter is a portable device, which converts a specific audio output into an FM radio signal. It can be plugged into a CD player, satellite radio system, headphone jack, or a portable media player. One common use of an FM transmitter is to play music from an Mp3 player through the speakers of a car.

Music have no base????


If you're relying on the internal GPS speaker(s) to reproduce the sound, those tiny speakers will not be able to create the deep bass that you're used to hearing through your car or home stereo.

A better way would be to use the headphone jack to supply the input of an FM stereo transmitter, and then tuning the car radio to the same frequency of the transmitter. You can use the headphone jack to send the sound signals to a cassette adapter or even a line input jack on your stereo instead of the transmitter if you prefer.. it all depends on what you have that accepts a signal - in this case FM radio, cassette player, or auxiliary input on the stereo. Of course, you could also use a headphone - but that would probably get you a ticket as most places have laws prohibiting their use while driving.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

IS THERE A WAY I CAN PLAY IT IN MY CAR IN THE RADIO


Hello,

Yes, You will need to purchase a device called an FM transmitter, it plugs into the headphone jack and transmits the sound to your FM radio. The transmitter will have station settings, you just find a radio frequency that does not have a station in your area, set the transmitter to that and tune your radio to the same frequency. You can get the transmitters from Walmart electronics dept, Target, Sears, Amazon.com, Radio Shack and most other electronics retailers. The transmitters run about $12-20 and can be battery powered or plug into your car power outlet. Go to google.com and do a search for "MP3 FM transmitter" and you will see what they look like.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I am having the same problem with a twist, sound works from the fm and headphone but only from the right side no left audio. I have the 760 and it only has one speaker and my guess it that it gets its feed...


If you use the headphone jack a lot and your missing the audio from the speaker and one channel from the headphone jack, then it's possible that some of the headphone jack connections have broken off of the PC board. The audio goes to the speaker through the headphone jack.

Please see this link for more info and read the section about the headphone jack.

No sound when put on 88.3 fm


I didn't think this unit had an included FM transmitter - so I looked around for more info, and everything I've found indicates it does not.

It will however play audio via the built-in speaker or headphone jack. Use of a third party FM transmitter will allow playing audio (navigation, alerts, MP3 or audio books) when connected to the headphone jack and with both the FM transmitter and FM radio set to the same frequency.

The FM transmitter will work best when set to a frequency that is unused and has the least amount of interference from adjacent stations. Check by tuning the car radio across the FM band and note frequencies that have those qualities. Leave the radio on one of the clear frequencies and set the FM transmitter to the same displayed on the radio. You should try several to find the one that works best. Also, be aware that as you travel, you may enter an area where that frequency (or one close by) is in use by a broadcaster. This will require repeating the process as needed to reduce interference.

HI Heather,

Make sure you don't have the sound muted. Have you tried plugging in a set of headphones into the headphone jack? If you can hear sound with the headphones, most likely, the internal speakers have failed. If you still can't hear any sound, the audio output stage on the motherboard has failed. In either case, you will need to send the unit back for repair. Be sure to have your serial number handy. Register it online https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm
if you haven't already done so.

More Info: If you can hear sound through the speakers and don't want to send the unit back for repair, you can buy a FM transmitter at Best Buy - the kind that will allow you to play a portable CD player through your car stereo. Just plug the transmitter's audio input cable into your GPS headphone jack, power the transmitter with your car lighter jack, set the transmitter frequency to a unsued FM channel and tune your car stereo to tha same channel. You should hear your GPS through your FM stereo.

Good Luck,
- Jim

Garmin GPS - suddenly has no sound - it just cut out


1. Are you sure the volume setting is all the way up?

2. Are you sure the sound isn't muted?

3. Have you tried a pair of headphones in the headphone jack? If the headphones have sound, your internal speaker is bad. If you don't feel like sending it back for repair, you can purchase a FM transmitter like those used on IPODs and CDplayers and plug into your GPS's headphone jack and play the audio through your car's FM stereo.

4. If you don't hear sound from the headphone jack, most likely the audio output section is defective and you'll need to send it back to Garmin to be repaired.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Garmin Nuvi 660 - how do I get FM Transmitter firmware


I believe in your location it comes as an option. transmitter is an optional module. You can browse the user manual at following link (PDF file) http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/1262_OwnersManual.pdf
You can see at 35th page, simple instructions have been given for FM transmitter settings.

If it doesn't work please contact to the Manufacturer. I couldn't find Garmin's Ireland number. However you may call UK number +44-870-8501242. Or simple you call your reseller.

Good Luck
