Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Radio Display shows an error code E DC. When looking at manuel, it indicates that something would be inside CD compartment. Radio/CD was and has been working fine. It was working perfect 30 minutes prior to getting out of car and then trying to restart disc when re-entering car; I received that error code. The orginial CD that I was listening to was still in the compartment. I hadn't even changed the CD. What are your thoughts on the problem? Is this a dealer situation or just maybe a fuse?

    i have the same problem, but ive had my radio replaced once, and the issue is still occuring, im thinking there may be a short in the wiring or something? i dont know anything about this but the stupid dealership didnt seem to know much either and they said they dont fix radios...they just replace them which is what they did the first time. if its an electrical problem, they cant tell me how long its going to be for them to fix. i hear a pop pop in the back speakers and then see E-DC but it happens intermittently, if its going to work it works, and if it breaks, it will either work or not when i restart the car. if it decides to work it will be fine, if not no amount of times of restarting the car seems to make it work again until it decides it will start working again the next day. i dont know what to do...im a single mother and i cant be without a car. ive only got 25k on this stupid thing. FRUSTRATING!!!

It is not a fuse, if it were a fuse, the radio would most likely not turn on at all.

This problem you are having is something that would require a professional to repair.

Many times when any type of electonics have a failure, they are working fine just prior to the failure. A component could be on the brink of failure and when the unit gets turned on, that initial charge when powering up can trigger a failure.

If money is an issue, you may want to find a service center that repairs this type of radio instead of taking it to a dealer, unless it is under the warranty.
If it is not under warranty, a dealer may charge you more to fix it than it would cost to purchase a new aftermarket stereo. They are very expensive.

Let me know if I can be any more help to you.

CD player TEAC DC-D350 When inserting CD >>message 'disc' shows up. Suspect Laser diode faulty. Should the Laser be on only with CD inserted ? or anytime when player is 'ON'...?


It must probably be a laser faulty, however it could also be derived from something that you can solve by cleaning.. The laser should be on only with cd inserted.

I have a simple stereo speaker from Radio Shack. Small metal case with two wire input latches. Each box has two speakers in side. Both speakers boxes went out at the same time. I wasn't there when this...


You need to measure across the speakers themselves n ot the crossover (cap). If these are 8 ohm speakers, an ohm meter will read about 6 or so. That is because both impedence and resistance use the same measurement. With an ohm meter you are measuring resistance. The speakers are rated using impedence.

If both speakers are open (measure infinity), I would suspect a problem with the stereo that caused them to go open. With the stereo on and playing something (radio,cd , or whatever) use a DC voltmeter to measure between the speaker terminals (Red/Black). You should read essentially 0 no matter what the volume. If you read any DC more than 3/4 V, the problem is with the amp section of the stereo.

How can I reprogram Nissan pulsar car radio a battery change which has deleted memory? panel shows error message only ERR.


You will need to turn the ignition on (do not start the car) turn on the radio and leave it on for anywhere between 1 - 3hrs untill it prompts you for a code.

There is a internal timer which adds time depending on how many times the code is entered wrongly.

Do not start the car, or turn off the ignition or radio during the 1 - 3 hr period.

Hope this helps.

Thank you

1995 V.W PASSAT


Hi,

If I understand your post right, you have the code but need the procedure on how to input/enter it into the radio. To my understanding, a 1995 Volkswagen Passat would have a non-BOSE unit with or without CD changer controls. It was a premium sound system with anti-theft coding.

Pls try:
1. Power the radio ON till "SAFE" is displayed;
2. Press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons simultaneously till display shows "1000". (In some versions, it is the seek and the two scan buttons);
3. Release the AM/FM and SCAN buttons;
4. Enter your security code using the first four station buttons on the radio;
5. The first button changes the first number of the four digit code;
6. The second button changes the second number and so on and so forth;
7. Once the proper code has been entered press the AM/FM and SCAN buttons at the same time and hold until the radio accepts the code;
8. You have two tries before the system will lock you out for an hour;
9. Should you happen to have a three digit code, pls make the first digit a zero;
10. The first digit can only be 1 or 0 (the 0 will not show up so for a zero, push the button until the 1 disappears).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hey there denisr, please take look at the display screen on the unit. If you see MONITOR, indicated in the display, then this is your problem . Simply deactivate via the button on the front of your machine. Hope it helps. Good Luck!
