Question about Pioneer DEH-P80MP CD Player

Can't go past 40 volume with Cd in

I just hooked up this cd player to my car. I cranked it up to 60 to see wat it sounds like and make sure it all worked. Then i poped in a CD and tried the same thing and it would only go to 40 volume and then would say "ACC ERROR LINE" (or it was something like this). Is this a wiring problem on my part, could it be my speakers or what? Any solutions would be a great help thank you.

Check to see if the selector switch in rear of unit is switched to 60. if that is the case, then your speakers are not capable of handling the power. This is a safeguard Pioneer has built in to the unit. It senses the wattage allowances and self adjusts to the allowed wattage of the speakers. If this is the case, then you need to upgrade your speakers.

    How do you, adjust the power setting from 40 to 60 watt. I have the same unit but don't know how to adjust the power setting?

1986 Thunderbird, cd player keeps cutting off. Is this power problem?

No that sounds like the player is just old and most likely needs the tiny drive belts replaced.

XAV-622 is hooked up right, but it does not play any sound from any digital source except FM radio, I put a real CD in there, it shows up on the screen but it wont play any sounds. Same when I hook a usb...

Hi, thanks for posting you comment..

Sound coming out from FM and not from CD player or any other source,can not be from the connection that is if the connection is rightly connected...

You might need to check the settings of the Sony XAV-60 Car Video Player manual if there are correctly connected..

To check it, you might need to use the manual for help..

Download the manual from below:

please keep me posted

Hope it helped..

HOW DO I HOOK UP AN IPOD TO A CD MIX2 , i hooked it into the aux on the back, i didnt get no sound evevrything was hooked up ,

You would need a Stereo jack to RCA cable. Input into Aux channel in rear, make sure your switch on faceplate is set to Aux. You may also need to turn up volume on the ipod.

Can get the stereo to work but no sound comes out when its hookd

All you have to do is make sure the wires are hooked up to the right color and if they are then your speakers might be blown!!

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume

first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

When volume is turned up the radio shuts off

Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.

My amp wont turn on

The reason it used to cut-off at 60% volume as you said before,
Is probably due to the "protection circuit mode" being tripped.

You can try resetting it by turning off your CD player ,removing the Batt( + ) and Gnd ( - ) terminals from the amp for a short period. Reconnect them Allow the amp to receive power but not switch on (keep cd player/remote power source off)

If you dont know how to wire the CD player to control the amps power status , the easiest way is to connect the 'power antenna' or similar low voltage throughput wire from the head-unit to the amp's Remote terminal.

My old amp did the same thing ,and would need to be powered off/on before resuming sound output, sometimes I had lots of trouble with the protect mode staying on , even with little or no sound output from headunit.
