Re: bad line output jacks
I also agree with this answer. It's not hard to resolder the connections.
this is a common problem with output jacks. the solder dries up over time and making it brittle and working its way loose. try resoldering the connections and all should be well.

For connecting these to your amplifier you need 4 Stereo RCA Cable.
1.Connection for cd: 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.
Your TV must have a sound output, preferable an RCA type output jacks, these are connected to aux or line inputs of your audio amplifier, in some TV sets, you must deactivate speakers at menu to have audio at these outputs, please check your TV user guide for more details.
remember those cd kits that came with a tape to insert to the (stero)pioneer fh-p404 and the output jack to the cd player? well instead of plugging into cd player plug it to your ipod....my pioneer fh-p404 has a tape deck and i'm able to hear all of my music without cds or tapes and i found the tape kit without the cd player for 6 bucks at walmart go figure!
take a red and white audio rca cable and cut off one end of the jacks. on the end you cut, solder a headphone output plug on. can also solder on the lines of a pair of headphones (where you've cut off the 1/8 in jack) directly to the rcv jacks.
You will not get 'surround sound' from this set only stereo sound. The Video/Aux jack at the back of the unit is an input terminal. You can connect the audio part of your TV(if it has a Line Out jack), dvd player or video game console to this input to get the sound through the stereo system. Use a male-to-male RCA cable to make the connection, they are color coded (Red and White). Press the "Video/Aux" button to select the input terminal.
make sure none of the speaker+/- wires are contacting each other. if even one of them does, most likely all the sound will cut out to protect the internal amplifier. Other than that, the blue/white remote wire is most likely your problem, if the car has some sort of factory amp thats the wire that tells it to turn on and let sound through. its possible that the outputs of the deck are bad, try checking it with a test speaker or in another car
