Ticking noise Every now and again when i put the fascia on, when the music is playing there is a fast, sort of ticking noise coming out the left front speaker. I have to switch off the radio and re-apply the fascia a couple of times before it goes away. Why is this?

No sound from the cd and extended media but have sound from radio

If you have an amplifier connected to the radio, make sure the amp remote wire is connected to the blue/white wire and not the blue wire of the radio. The blue wire is for power antenna and is energized only when tuner is playing, not when cd or ext media is played, and therefore will shut your amp off when playing those sources.

What so I do when my dual XDMA6438 won't play the usb it keeps telling me aux front how do I get it to play

I have read the manual on the Dual website. You should too.
when it says Aux front it is expecting music to come from the front auxillary socket. You have music on a USB socket instead, so you have to tell the dual it use that socket, by pressing MODE UP or MODE DOWN until it says USB.

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound

There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

Music sounds great!.But the entering calls sound horrible,Ican't

The volume setting on your phone affects the volume as well. Turn the phone up more. If this has already been tried or does not work the keep reading. I believe the call sound comes only through a front speaker (maybe the right front...not sure but I can check on this). If the music seems like it sounds good (with all the speakers) there might be a slim chance that the one speaker that plays the call is not working well. Use the fader and balance setting to switch to each speaker one by one and play sound through it (preferably a commercial with people speaking). See if one of the front speakers is blown or at least does not sound good for voice. This would mean replacing a speaker front set.

Location of reset on unit

when you disconnect it from cables, it resets. But i believe that is not the problem. Check speaker cables. I think you have problem with internal power amps. They have thermal and current protection. look for short circuits on speakers or speaker cables.

Mp3 player only plays on right side speakers

Have you tried a different jack? It could be faulty.
