    It may be because someone has entered several wrong codes in the past.

    If you have a BND button, then press that briefly to see if the display resets.

    If not , then try leaving the radio SWITCHED ON ...UNDISTURBED to see if it resets.

    The Code Entry Instructions will depend on the exact model of radio so it will be one of the ones on this list ( The most common is the PU-2294)

No sound on radio or CD,speakers working nice but dont make any sound

Possible damage to radio output ic if no audio. Output failure is usually due to shorted speaker lines either together or to ground. You can check your speaker lines at head unit and they should have approx 6v dc on +&- lines each channel. If this is not present then most likely is
output failure, if ok then is internal fault possibly with vol control ic or
power supply.

Hi i just bought a pug 106 with no stereo,i bought one from a breakers but need a code it is a Clarion PU2294a serial no CL0401Z0518204, i,ve tried 3 different codes to no avail, cheers

The only Clarion code available for free from anywhere on the Internet is if yourradio also has a BARCODE SERIAL NUMBERbeginning with C 7000000 + + ++ on a label somewhere on the metalcasing. If not then it will only be available from your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service oryour local Car Radio / Audio Store who will connect a laptop to read/recode thememory chip (EEPROM) inside your radio

I need a radio code for a pug 106 serial no CL0401Z0495037 model pu 2294a thanks

Your radio is made by CLARION and the only CLARION code available for free (using a serial number ) from anywhere on the Internet is if your radio also has a BARCODE SERIAL NUMBER beginning with C7000000 + + + + on a label somewhere on the metal casing.
(There are usually two barcodes on one label. The one required is the lower one )

If not then it will only be available from your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service

Clarion 3475 speakers wired, player wont turn on

The RED from the clarion wire must be hooked up to a switched power source ... that was wired to your old radio, then press the reset switch, and it should then turn on.

If this stereo is a clarion and original equipment and uses a a four digit code. First thing you do is with the power on to the radio, push and hold the band button for a few seconds until you see the word "code" on the radio display. Input the code and radio should work. If that doesn't work, then if you have tried to input a wrong code several times then radio will lock out. So what you need to do is
the radio has to be on for one hour uninterrupted, then you can do the band button procedure , code input again and hopefully the radio goes on. Hopefully this helps. Please advise results

Someone put the wrong security code in the radio. Hold the DNR button down and the code will clear. Be sure you have the correct code to enter after clearing the current one.
