Question about Car Audio & Video

3 Answers

I have a PLCDCS90 Casette/cd head unit. My installation skills are pretty good. Usually never have any problems, but for some reason I'm not getting a connection. I can hear the speakers make a little sound when I hook everything up, and the unit warms up, but there is no visible display or functions. I’m using a Jeep/Eagle/Dodge Wire Harness receiver. triple checked all of the connections. Power supply is good. Fuses look good. Not sure what to check next

    I have a strong feeling there is something wrong with the unit (possibly the detachable face), Thanks for the confirmation.

    No other units connected to the system.
    I've connected the new head unit using a brand new Jeep/Eagle/Dodge Wire Harness receiver, 1988-up, purchased from Crutchfield. All wires have been properly connected. Unit was properly grounded before connecting power supply. The head unit's harness is securely connected. Fuses are good. Again, can hear the connection through the speakers when initially plugged in but the unit will not turn on. (display will not light up and does not accept cd)

Hi chunter1989

Check if the plug that takes all the wires into the unit is connected properly.

But if you said that you checked this 3 times and found no fault , then this could also be a defective unit.

Also check what happens if you change the mode of the radio.

If all else fails , take it back to the retailer you bought it from and have them exchange it for a new unit.

You honestly shouldn't have to struggle with it.

Hope this is off help and good luck.

    Let me know..

    check for this.

    1 Switch the ignition to the "ON" or "ACC" position.

    2. Replace the fuse with another 15A fuse.

    Do not use speakers of impedance less than 4 ohms; and allow the speaker
    wires to be shorted together when the unit is switched on.
    Otherwise it may overload or burn out the power amplifier stage.

Dual dvd car stereo no sound


Check the fuses. There's one in your car's fuse panel (usually in the footwell be the hinges of the car door) & one on the back of the head unit. While you have the head unit out checking the fuse, ensure that the power wire is still connected securely and the ground wire has a firm, clean connection to the sub dash (clean metal, no paint). If this doesn't solve the problem, the unit may well have gone belly up. You will need a new one if that's the case. If you purchase a new one, stay away from Dual. It's garbage. I know they're super affordable, but you get what you pay for with that kind of stuff. Pioneer makes really good units and there priced reasonably too. Just a suggestion... Good luck!

I have an rca portable radio tape and cd player RCD175, and it plays good, but wont play cassette tapes. I put the tape in and press pas and the play button wont stay pressed in. What causes that?


Hello
It is due the mechanism trouble to your set. The casette tape deck mechanism should be troubleshooted. It is a skilled work. Just contact any experienced service technician to make this set right.

Need replacement cd drive and casette drive for a philips az2045/17 or a used working replacement unit


At one time you could get a whole refurbished unit for $60. That pretty much makes yours not economically repairable, assuming the parts are all you need and the labor is free.

I'd look around on eBay for a similar replacement.

98 Deville casette/radio stereo won't play after swapping to CD/Casette/radio


Since the replacement is a different one from the one you are replacing, the car wiring harness is probably different from the one needed for the new radio. This is a really important difference if the new one is part of a Bose system and that is not the option installed in your car. The best way to check is for you to identify the option codes for each radio and go to alldatadiy.com and compare the wiring diagrams.

Worth fixing?


Open the cassette deck and use a pen to push the heads down. After this, it would probably work better to avoid using the deck.

Sub cuts out when I switch to CD player?


It shuts off because the remote turn-on wire to the amplifier is connected to the power antenna wire behind your head unit. The power antenna wire is only activated when the tuner is selected. You need to switch the remote wire to the blue/white wire from the head unit (currently you're using the blue wire). This is the true remote output, and will activate the amp whenever the head unit is powered on.
