Question about Clarion XMD3
I have an XMD3, and am attaching an IPOD via the aux in cables. Works fine, except I'm only getting sound out of the right channel front and rear.
Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.

Yes i had a very similar problem.
I have the MP-235. I could not edit my clock, my subwoofer settings werent active, and I could not switch to AUX.
If you have these problems, you have to hold down the menu button (bass boost) to enter the menu. then scroll around, turn AUX on, change the clock, etc etc.
You turn demo mode off the same way. Kinda silly how they have it all set up.
Hope that helps anyone in the future. i just wasted 3 hrs with this crap!

SOURCE: NO SOUND FROM CLARION XMD3
I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.
