SOURCE: every disc in tray ends with noise after a minute

Try a cd cleaning disc, the ones you can buy with the small cleaning brushes on them! It sounds like the laser is dirty.

SOURCE: RCA audio system,and three disc.

I always encountered that kind of problem,the audio works but discs player not working.This kind of a problem of a disc player had three causes,first the lense is busted already secondly the MPEG MEMORY IC is busted,thirdly the roller that's moving back and port bringing the lense set stock up full of dirt this is most common problem.That why whateveryou did is not functioning.If you know how to open your unit it's better. First you do is to clean the roller with the use of a lighter fluid to take the old greases that already harden with dirt. After that all is clean put a first class greases type-A only little to the roller and wipe the lense with a cotton buds. If all this procedure nothings happens,you better change the lense with desame code number, to avoid conflict.If the lense is change still not functioning that's the time you change the MPEG memory IC.I assure it to you it's works 100%.

SOURCE: cd's skip

all the rca's have been released without quality control... you will have to open and adjust the potentiometers (the adjustible resistors on the main board) to re-calibrate the laser timings. However the way that the boards are mounted inside the boombox's chassis you will need to take apart everything to be able to reach the main board (inside vertical right side board with large heatsink and fan) without causing a short (as to be able to properly adjust these you need to have a cd playing and the whole thing needs to be upright.
I would recommend throwing it all way, not worth the time if you don't have the patience.

SOURCE: How to get in to clean the lens for RP-9316 Boombox

I had the same issue. Over time, the cd player quit palying at all. The unit would try to read the cd but couldn't and then skip to the next cd.
- I took fairlane's advice and put a cd in and listened for the ticking sound to indicate that the laser was trying to read the cd. I also looked inside through the top "vent" area to be sure the cd was actually spinning. It was spinning and I heard what I thought I was "ticking" sound so I guessed that the laser needed to be cleaned.
- I took off the 6 side panel screws on the right side of the entire unit and loosened the screw on the backside off the unit about halfway down from the top that also held the side panel on.
- I then removed the side panel.
- I then removed the 2 screws on the top side of the other side panel and the screw in the top center back of the top panel and was able to remove the top cover that is over the unit. The top cover is "pressure fitted" in so be careful as you try to remove it, using a little wiggle at a time, but it does comes off.
- Once you have the top off, there is a screw in the center of the plate that holds the tray for the cd's. Remove the screw and you will able to lift and spin the tray to have clear access to the laser
that needs to be cleaned. (Note the position of the numbers on the tray so you put it back the right way.)
- The laser is a little "glassy" looking thing about the size of the head of the q-tip.
- I used the q-tip with 70% isopropol alcohol and rubbed it over and around the laser as best I could. I repeated the procedure 2-3 times and the used compressed air to dry it off.
- I put everything back in place in the reverse order I took it off, based on what's in the above steps.
- Remember, the top will fit in with pressure so don't get anxious as you try to get it in the right position.
The cd's actually play again.
I hope this will help someone.

RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

Lost my instructions to operate the remote control. I have the code list, but i don't know how to imput the right code on the remote. My model is JER321


Hi,

Configuring codes:
Turn on the component that you want to set up.
1.Hold the component key down until the green indicator light comes on. The green light should come on after approximately 3 seconds.
2.Release the component key.
3.If you are programming the DVD or CD device press the "action" key. The red indicator light will come on.
4.Within thirty seconds, enter in a 4-digit code number. The component key lights will blink with an upward motion when a code has been successfully entered. In this case proceed to step #5. If the code has not been successfully entered, the componment lights will not blink. In this case return to strep #1 and start over.
5.Test code by pressing "Power" key. If the component turns off, you've got the right code. Follow the same instructions to set up your other components. If the component doesn't turn off, return to step 2 and use the next 4-digit code listed.
Note: If none of the codes turn your component off, try the Auto Code Scan function.

Auto Code Scan:

The Auto Code Scan feature allows you to set up your components without having to enter in code numbers. The Jensen will do the work for you! (It may take a few minutes to find your code using this method.)
1.Turn on the component that you want to set up.
2.Hold the component key down until the light comes on. The green light should come on after approximately 3 seconds.
3.Release the component key.
4.If you are programming the DVD or CD device press the "action" key. The red indicator light will come on.
5.Press "0" - "9" The green light will blink as codes are sent.
6.As soon as the remote turns your component off, press the "action" key. The component key lights will blink with an upward motion when a code has been successfully entered. The component is now programmed. To find that code, proceed to Code Readback.
If none of the codes turn your component off, return to step 2 and start over.

Thanx

How can i test my rca output jacks with a test light? pioneer deh p3100ub. hooked up spkr, nothing. tried one rca plug to white(lt) and then red(rt). Unit has 4 rca jacks, 2 for subwfr and 2 for front...


:) the rca jacks have to be connected to an amplifier,, their signal is too lay to even light a bulb.. you have to connect it to a car amplifier and then from the amplifier to the speakers..

Just so you'd know,, once your deck plays and you hear music on your speakers through your normal speaker wires,, RCA jacks work..

Ok you have 4 jacks,, 2 subs and 2 front.. These should connect to a preamp,, which takes 4 inputs and allows you to equalize or adjust how the music should sound,, now from the pre-amp,, it runs to an amplifier,, thats powers the subs and another that powers the speakers.. Some amps have 4 inputs so you can use one amp for your subs mids and heights..

for example a basic music system is

1 cd player
1 pre amp
1 amplifier (4 inputs, 4 channel out)

you bridge 1+2 and connect this to 1 12" double coil sub woofer

the next 2 connect to 2 mid speakers example "rockford or ev 5 / 8 " and 2 tweeters for heights..

Thats a kicking tricked out basic car audio system,,,

Hope that helps you understand how it works..

No Sound - boat stereo


Assuming that the four speakers are connected to the amplifier, then the amp is the most likely problem component. Does the amplifier show a power light when the system is turned on? Note that there is probably another fuse in the amplifier power wire, near the battery.
