Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done. If you can't get it to work with this process (or whichever process the manufacturer describes in the manual), then that wire may not have been hooked up, or could have been hooked up incorrectly. You'll probably have to remove the head unit to investigate this.

New Alpine radio, went through setup, plays fine on radio/tuner on all four speakers, but ipod (USB port) or internal CD only plays on front speakers.


Just a thought - the usb provides a digital signal which carries information about how the signal is to be processed; mono, stereo, surround sound stereo, etc.
If the mp3 music file was only recorded in 2 speaker stereo perhaps that is how it plays back.

Admittedly the radio signal is stereo and yet it plays on four speakers but unless it is a DAB radio it is analogue and maybe that makes a difference.

Perhaps there is an internal electronic fault with the digital processing part of the unit. I suggest reading the handbook again and then perhaps contacting the seller.

The BUS wires are a serial data link, probably incompatible with other makes of CD player. I'd hesitate to connect it to +12v, this may cause damage. If anything try connecting it to BUS.C through a 1kohm resistor to start with.

Perhaps you need something like this to make it work. http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-alpine-kcm-122b_p-20941.htm

Stereo will not play sound when CD is inserted. tuner works fine and the stereo says the cd is playing but there is no sound... HELP!!!


hello sir hi, If the CD is playing, but is no sound coming out from the player, this may be the likely trouble. sorry there are no quick fix for this.
  • check for selector switch contact, a faulty switch with poor contact does not connect the correct circuit where the signal of the CD should go to be amplified.
  • dirty or loose CD lens contact, a visual circuit inspection is needed here.
  • signal break from the CD lens to the power amplifier is needed to be checked, this requires to be checked by a technician with an oscilloscope to trace where the signal got lost. this is the best way to find the trouble.
  • The spindle is not spinning or spinning fast to properly read the disk. OR
  • Bring it to a Car stereo dealer and ask for service. They have in-house tech guys to analyse the trouble.
If the price of service is higher or very close to a new one, i guess its time to buy one.

My Pioneer car stereo stops all audio signal after a couple of minutes regardless whether i'm playing a CD or the radio, but the stereo stays on. and the CD seconds and minutes still count, do you know why...


Check your connections to your speakers and amp and look for loose wires touching metal. I believe your stereo is fine, this has something to do with your speakers and the speaker wire

JVC car stereo won't play cd


If it does it with any cd and it played before you have to clean the lense or laser. Get a cd player laser cleaner disk or cd. If you still have problems take the radio fuse off in the fuse block to restart it. Remove the fuse wait five minutes then reinstall. Also some times when you burn CDs in the wrong format the cd player will not recognize them.

Cd problems


I took care of this problem by removing my cd player and reinstalling it that is disconnecting all wires and then reinstalling it from scratch. I would also recommend that you should use a cd lens cleaner to prevent dust from covering the lens inside the player. But my problem was largely an installation one.
