Hooking up an Ipod to my stereo

I purchased a monster adapter cable and it has two RCA (phono) cables that hook into the back of my Pioneer DEH-3700MP Cd player, but i don't know how to make the ipod play through the stereo. When I turn on the radio, you can hear my ipod playing faintly in the background, but i don't know how to make just the RCA inputs play. Is there an auxiliary button that I'm missing? I'd really appreciate some help!!

    I am having the same exact problem. I cannot get my mp3 player to play through the radio. I cannot get it to say aux like it says in the manual.
    Thanks- Chris

I'm having the same problem. I pressed the "function" button about 50 times and AUX never showed up.

    I finally got mine working and it wasn't just a matter of pressing the function button until AUX showed up.



    I had the unit turned off, pressed and held the function button until
    the time started flashing to be set. I think I pressed and held
    it down again, until the time stopped flashing, then pressed it several
    more times and suddenly AUX appeared. I got it turned on and now
    it works.

Thank you so much t_chelle!!! You fixed it! I spent hours on this problem - and had given up-

The stereo has to be OFF- then hold the funtion button and push the clock untill it starts blinking- now you can set the time. Hit the function button again and then you get the Aux on or off. Mine was off and I hit the arrow to on and now my ipod works great!! And I can set the time. The manual does NOT tell you to do this. Thank you so much!! I was so frustrated - you really helped a lot!

See page 34 in your manual under "Switching the auxiliary setting". If you don't have the manual: 1) press the "function" button repeatedly until "AUX" is displayed. (The "function" button is the little round button just to the right of the arrow buttons.) 2) press the up or down arrow to turn AUX on or off. 3) Now, whenever you press "SRC", AUX will be one of you choices. Good luck - Rick

Did you mean this one? Because there's no function button on it.
And if it is one, then I can't find it, so please tell me which one is it.

Do I really have to buy that extra hook up for my ipod that costs like $100 or can I just use a simple cord and plug it in the back of the cd player?

I need directions to connect my mp3 player to my pioneer deh 3700mp car stereo


Assuming that you're not trying to connect an iPod or iPhone, you will need an additional adapter. For your particular unit, that will be a Pioneer CDRB10 Auxiliary input adapter for P-Bus receivers (approximately $40). You'll also need a stereo mini plug to RCA adapter (about $15 for a good one of around 6 ft). You'll plug this adapter into the headphone jack of your MP3 player and the RCA ends of the adapter into the RCA ends of the Pioneer CDRB10. Then for the hard part, you'll need to plug the other end of the Pioneer CDRB10 to the rear of your stereo head unit. That will mean pulling the unit out and doing some fishing so that the wires are hidden and leading to a location where you can functionally attach and detach your MP3 player.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Hooking sat to car stereo


that plug at the back is not for sat radio. It is for use with steering wheel controls. You have the blue plug at rear of stereo and that is the plug for sat radio. Ericson electronics is contracted to build the sat compatible units that wire into this radio through the blue. plug. if you are using 3.5 plug audio control from a portable sat receiver, the you will need to buy an aux input cable for your stereo..

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?


This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Hooking Ipod to onkyo receiver


i pods use a different adapter for doing this. It plugs in the bottom using the big porton bottom and outputs the rca plugs this way. Ipods see too much resistance and protects the unit from burning out. check this out http://www.amazon.com/Logic3-iPod-RCA-Phono-Cable/dp/B00083D7WC

Ipod input for sa-eh760


You can plug the Ipod into the mic input , to do test recording. But the result wont be great.

To listen the Ipod in your stereo you should plug the Ipod into the Auxiliary input on the stereo.

Naturally you do not need any dvd.

Here is the adapter: 1.5M 3.5mm Male to Male AV Audio RCA Y Adapter

The simplest solution would be connect the headphone jack on the iPod to the stereo audio inputs (RCA) to your home theater. So you need a cable that is "stereo phono mini jack" on one end (into iPod headphone jack), and then Y-splits into two RCA connectors on the other end (into L and R audio in on the receiver).

The expensive Apple-endorsed Monster-branded version can be found at http://store.apple.com/us/product/TN983LL/A#overview for $30, but you can get the same thing at Radio Shack for $7.
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102974&cp=&sr=1&origkw=phono+jack+rca&kw=phono+jack+rca&parentPage=search

Set the iPod volume to less than ~80% and then control the volume using your receiver. You have to use the iPod menu to select music.

Pioneer DEH 3700 ground problems/system noise


Very common with pioneers. their is a ground loop fuse-located inside the head unit, that has to be repaired at the factory. Or, the best way-just like you said, is to ground the rca's, solder a thin wire to each rca, easiest and cheapest way. I had it happen to me with a 4800.
