While you may read over a million answers to this problem, try this one first:

With the KEY ON, POWER THE UNIT OFF, by pushing the volume button IN for 3 seconds.
After power is off and key is STILL ON, press and hold the volume button AGAIN for 3 FULL SECONDS. The elusive "Initial" settings should reappear at this point. press function to navigate the INITIAL SETTINGS to turn on AUX1 or AUX2, and even to set the clock...

To get out of INITIAL SETTINGS, simply press again for THREE SECONDS, or press "BAND" to "escape"...

I hope this helps.

I have no 'input' button, instead the ;menu' button seems to do the same thing.
This is on a CDX-FC132 unit.
Same process, same result.

How to connect your iPod to a Car Stereo


Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.

AUX
1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)

2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.

3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.

4. Connect your iPod.

5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

FM Transmitter
1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.

2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.

3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.

4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.

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.

Can i hook an ipod up through an aux cable that plugs in to the ipod . its the red and white aux cable and it plugs into the earphone place on an ipod


If you are talking about the cable I think you are, all you do is plug the red and white rca into the input of your choice on the back of your radio and the other end into your choice of audio output (anything with that size headphone port).

How do I turn on the "external aux" for my pioneer DEH-p7000r


You'll need an adapter cable such as this one:
http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?search=ip+bus&i=469PIOPRCA

The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).

To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.

Aux sound problem


It sounds like you've connected to the front or rear audio RCA output.

Pioneer CD players generally don't have a direct auxiliary input like that - what you'll have to do is get a CD-RB10 adapter(it plugs into the CD changer connector on the back, and your cable would plug into that).

Xm radio


This is from the Pioneer Electronics Website; Touch the source icon and then touch ?AUX? to select AUX as the source. When the source icon is not displayed, you can display it by touching the screen. If the auxiliary setting is turned ?OFF?, ?AUX? cannot be selected. I would assume you just need to disable the AUX button. Best of Luck.

VIDEO OK, AUDIO NOT WORKING


The aux or auxiliary is used for external audio source (ipods, portable mp3 player,etc) If you are watchig dvd movies, the sound should come from the dvd and not from aux.

Aux


if it has aux its probably going to be right on the front, its most likely mini-din, the same connector used for headphones and pc speakers, youll need a mini-din to mini-din cable, also known as an audio cable, you can get the mcheap at radio shack usualy, its a cable that allows a pc subwoofer to be hooked up to the pc's audio card, with this just turn you ipod on and control it as normal while the deck is set to aux and you should hear your ipod. some decks have actual ipod connectors that work differntly but I personaly don't know much about them, I have the mini-din connector, and an ipod shuffle
