SOURCE: Clarion PF2851B-A car radio will

Is this a stock OEM radio (came with the car when it was new)? I don't recognize the model number and that may be why. I work at an authorized Clarion service center and have never seen that model number.

If your radio has a reset button you can try that. The reset button is usually a very small (about 1/8 inch across) circular button that is not labed and can only be pressed with the tip of an ink pen or something similar.

It is not likely that this will help, but it is worth trying.

You may also need to enter the security code it has one, sometimes resetting a radio will cause this to happen. If you do reset the radio, you will need to re-enter all your preset stations and adjust the clock again because it sets everything back to factory defaults.

If this does not help, you will need to take it in to a service center to get it repaired. I have been repairing car audio systems for nearly 18 years and can tell you with certainty that there is no easy fix for these type of problems except a reset which rarely works.

It could have a bad voltage regulator, a bad motor in the mech, a bad sensor, or any number of other things that can cause your current problem.

If this is a OEM factory radio, you would save money by just buying a new aftermarket radio that will have more bells and whistles than the factory radio normally has, and a decent radio would only cost about $100 to $175. A repair of a factory radio usually costs more than that.

If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer them for you, just respond with another post to this thread.

If you have found this free information helps and gives you the information you need to make an informed decision, a rating of "FixYa!" would be the proper rating since there is no easy fix for this problem.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Dave

I have a cd stuck in my factory cd player, i have an 05 dodge ram 1500, the cd will play but wen i push the eject button the cd switches to the radio and does not eject out


the cd mechanism is probably bad. the only way to repair it is to replace the cd mechanism. it probably has a clarion cd mechanism.

My car stereo not rejecting cds.


is the deck even trying to eject cds? if it is, you may have a dirty pinch roller. if it isn't, try either pressing the reset switch or disconnect power to the radio for a few minutes.

Cd would not eject now wont play or eject or anything.


Start by checking all of the fuses in your car if the radio is not even powering on. If this does not work your next step is to have the unit repaired or replaced at which point the cds can by removed by taking the unit apart. You can do this yourself or take it to a best buy and have it replace with an aftermarket unit which will be much better and a lot cheaper than going back to the dealer

Radio not playing


it sounds like you didn't hook up both your power wires on your cd player. there is a red and yellow power wire. one is constant power to keep memory and the other turns on the radio when the key is turned. check to see if both are hooked up
