Question about Car Audio & Video

I have a Wharfedale WH170 car stereo. I have programmed the radio channels, but whenever I turn off the ignition, the programmes are lost and I have to retune and store the channels again. Is there anything I can do to store the channels? Cheers

This is usually caused by having the memory and power connections swapped (one stays on all the time, to store stations etc, and the other turns on with the ignition to provide the main power)

Try swapping the two power wires over - they're usally thick yellow and red wires IIRC, and almost all modern stereos have in-line 'bullet' connectors to let you swap them over easily (because not all car manufacturers have them the same way around!).

It became only while the car was idling, now it's anytime, anywhere, and never on a consistent basis. The engine simply dies, turns itself off. When it happens, the check gauges light comes on. Nothing...


is your stereo the OEM (factory original) model? Does the car have a factory-installed anti-theft system? If the answer to both is Yes, you may have a logic conflict since many anti-theft systems go to and through the car's stereo. If you still have the original owner's manual, check the section on anti-theft or security systems. It may list a reset procedure that returns the system to factory defaults. If you have an aftermarket anti-theft system, you may have to disable it until troubleshooting and repair processes have been accomplished. Incidentally, by the car sitting without a battery for five years, all E-prom programming may have been degraded or lost. As for the volume increasing, some GM/Delco radios have a volume compensation feature that increases volume levels as speed increases.

It's broken. I have a couple on my bench with this fault and they're not worth fixing when you can pick up replacements on Ebay for 30 quid.

NOTE: This is a really common failure mode. You're just unlucky it happened outside the warranty.

How do I get my rca truflat tv to get out of mono?


Hello
Press the MTS on the remote control handset to select STEREO, MONO or SAP. All the options will be available only when the current TV channel is broadcasting that option. Channels will not always carry programes, that have all MTS options. If "STEREO" appears on the screen when you select a channel means stereo sound is available with current programme. You can hear sound from both speakers. If broadcast is not strong and clear, stereo sound will not be available. Press "MTS" button to change it to "Mono". This will eliminate the noise. If "MONO" appears on the screen when you select a channel, stereo effect will not be availabe, even though you have set it to stereo. If "SAP" appears when you select a channel 'Second Audio Programe' [SAP] broadcasting is available for that programme. Press the "MTS" button to 'SAP' and you can hear that programe in different language or some other kind of audio.

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

When i turn on my car (vauhxall corsa) i am able to programme radio channels to the buttons, however when i remove the keys from the car i loose all power to the radio and also when turn back on i loose...


There's a wire on the radio that connects to a constantly LIVE 12V circuit. This wire usually has an inline fuse. If this wire has become disconnected, or if the fuse blew, or if the fuse supplying the area that this wire is connected to has blown, you'll lose all memory capability on the radio.

Check the fuses in your car's fuseblock for a blown fuse. If you can't find anything blown, check the inline fuse described earlier. My guess is that you'll find one of these is causing the problem.

Let me know what happens. Please rate accordingly.
