Power needs to be fed to 3 wires:
Yellow ; memory and main supply feed
Red: Accesories supply (comes in via ignition switch)
Black: Ground.
Did you forget either the yellow or red?

I am installing a Pyle PLDN74BTi double din in a friends trailblazer. I have all of the wires connected to the colors that match and am getting no power to the unit. Please help.

Is the power wire (probably the largest, red) electrically "hot"? There may be a fuse somewhere that you need to install or replace. Is the ground (probably the second-largest, black) well grounded? Without both, the unit will never power up.

I have recent bought a fiat punto 2000 model and it had an old standard tape deck in it so i have decided to change it for a cd player the couple i have tryed just dont seem to have any power going to them...

Putting a CD player into a car is not as easy as some people think. The first piece of advice I give to people is to contact Crutchfield and get the proper help- adapter cables and instructions to do the job before plunging into the blind. I have installed many car units and serviced them too for a number of years. There are harnesses to be had depending on the unit you are using and you need to know where all those wires go and when you can't just hook them up any old way. Some cars have common grounded speakers through the chassis- most car amps do not like this at all they need two wires going to each speaker isolated from the cars ground system.

Vm9424 unit will not power on pressed reset button and it beeps and lights around function buttons come on and go back off fan comes on for about 10 seconds and turns off checked power ground

Hello lumberjack623,
When the jensen starts acting this way, it is simply a power problem. The device is not receiving power from the main source. The battery is weak and need to be charged before the unit can turn on once again. The battery power is too low to turn the unit on.
Try to check the power source or the connection to the power source. It is not charging the players battery. You need to have the connection port replaced. Also the power connection needs be checked.
The battery is simply weak that is why it goes right off when it comes on.
Hope this was helpful to you. All the best Elect_Comp

Pleace help ! with bypassing brake ..on a sdn7ud in dash tv

Unfortunately, I cannot find a good manual on this unit so I am having trouble determining what the wire color is for the brake wire. Usually these units need to see a constant ground in order to work. You can try hooking that wire up to your ground wire, not advisable though. You could try hooking it up to a switch. You more than likely would have to us a certain combination in order to get it to work like flipping it on and off a couple of times, but still is effective. You would have to consult the manuals to find out if there is a combination or not. The other, and most effective, way to make it work is by using a relay. You would just wire up power, ground, and the brake wire to the relay.

Will not turn on after hitting the ground

Unfortunately, you likely broke the connection for the power switch- you can try taking it apart and trying to reconnect it- but I do not recommend this

How do i fix the mount error, please power off.... on a tascam dp-02 when i turn it on?

The only solution I know of is: turning off the unit, then simultaneously pressing Track Edit, Cursor up, and power button until the unit asks "are you sure?" This will unfortunately erase the hard drive.

Did you charge the unit over night? When they are brand new, the batteries are not always charged. See if the lights and screen come on when it is plugged into the charger. If so let it charge over night and try turning it on again. Otherwise, you should probably return the unit.
