Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

Songs allow


Hi Richard
To answer your question of what you need to download and make the songs play:

This player is meant to play mp3 and Windows Media files
To do so, you need the use of a Windows computer with USB port , connection cable (included) and a music management software (MusicMatch Jukebox." Go to the following webpage and download a user manual for your player...it will give you all the information you need.
Note: the 1022 is the same as the RD1076

Take one of the RCA cable connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line out of your cd and connect the other end (red/white) to the CD input of Your amplifier.
2. Connecting the tunner:
Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jack to the line output of you Tuner and connect the other end (red/white) to the TUNER input of your amplifier.
3. Connectiong the tape deck:
Now you have two RCA cable. Take one of the RCA cable and connect the one end (red/white) jacks to the PLAY out of the Tape deck and connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 play input of your amplifier.
Now connect the last RCA cable. Connect the one end (red/white) jack to the record input of the TAPE deck And connect the other end (red/white) to the TAPE 1 Record input of your amplifier.(this connection will help you to record to tape from cd or tuner. if you are not interested in recording then you can avoid this connection.)

Now you can select these three items from the frond plannel control switch of the amplifier.

Just connected my 4 yr old Jwin DVD player to a new Samsung HDTV. I am using "red, white yellow" connecting cables for the "audio; video in/out" as my connection. S-Video and Coaxial...


Those RCA jacks you are using might be the problem. Lowest Quality only means your TV is ment to handle 720 to 1080 lines- the RCA cables you are using can only handle up to 500 lines. The likely culprit is the RCA cables are low quality or bent or worn. Get new RCA cables and try again. Just be sure the plugs go all the way into the connectors and the wires are not crushed or chewed on by a pet.

I am trying to connect and play my pc on my lcd tv


It depends on what sort of television you have and the connections that it has available.

1. The easiest way is to get a VGA cable like the one in the image below if your TV has a VGA input connection.
img src="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_13.jpg" alt="VGA"/>
Notice this is for video, you will need a double audio jack cable to connect sound, if your TV has this sort of input, otherwise you are better of with option two.
img src="http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/mariolands_12.jpg" alt="VGA"/>

2. If your TV doesn't have a VGA connection, you need to get a VGA to RCA adapter like in the image below. Majority of the TVs have a RCA input connection, so if your has one you need to get this adapter and an RCA cable.

I have a jl 500.1 and a 8w7. The sub is playing but not really it will play sometimes but most of the time i am getting almost nothing. Am i using the wrong settings or a bad connection or blown sub?


Sounds like a bad rca connection. You need both rca jacks to be plugged in from your head unit, both left and right or you will not have full power you'll have half power to your sub/subs. Check your sub with a volt meter and see what it reads. Make sure if your head unit has a sub volume make sure it's turned up. Alot of people don't realize they have a seperate subwoofer volume on there deck and it's set to low, so check that. You could have bad rca cables. If all that is ruled out(best way by trying a different amp) the amp itself might be having problems. Don't think it would be in protect mode either.
Let me know if you have'nt allready.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?


This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Problem with SD card recognition


Try updating the firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/).
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off, remove the battery and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.
