SOURCE: why does my radio say amp grd when there is no amp

sounds like you need to check your speakers and/speaker wires to make sure you don't have a short to ground or bad speaker. if those check out, you may have a bad output ic inside of the deck.

When i turn stereo on and there is no sound and AMP GRD comes up. how do i sort this out

The amp needs a ground green wire. Attach it to a metal object with a screw. The wiring harness will have a green wire sometimes with a factory installed ring on it to be able to attach it to a ground

All you have to do is press the source button for 10 seconds till the power goes off and it only shows the time. Then turn it back on. It should be working then.

My clarion cd player in my boat was working fine now it says amp grd. I have looked but i see nothing unhooked what can i do to get sound out of my speakers?

Remove all the speaker wires.

Power the radio back on and verify it is not the radio at fault.

If it powers up, check the speakers with a Digital Multimeter set to OHMS 20x.

Each speaker should have a resistance of 4 ohms. (or 8 in some cases)

Any variance (+/- .5ohms) means the voicecoil is blown, and replace that speaker.

Installed and no sound or nothing

Im guessing you have an amplifier if not check the cd player ground " AMP GRD" means amp ground is faulty. In the event that you do have an amplifier check that ground wire as it's most likely the problem.

Ihave power but no sound

hi bign,

try the following things:

1:Try checking your ground connections, if they are good, then try regrounding the head unit to some bare metal in the dashboard, you could have a problem with the factory ground.

2:try looking at your speaker connections, sounds you have a wire grounding,try disconnecting all speakers and see if it does it. If not, try connecting one at a time, see if you can single out the speaker thats causing the problem

and also check to make sure the speaker terminals are not touching any metal, which is unlikely, because they are factory speakers.

god luck! and please rate this solution!
