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

Radio will not power up when I pust power button.


Make sure you have power going to both the red and yellow wires. If power is going only to the yellow wire, it will eject cds, however both the red and yellow wires need to have voltage going to them in order for the radio to work.

Clarion 3475 speakers wired, player wont turn on


The RED from the clarion wire must be hooked up to a switched power source ... that was wired to your old radio, then press the reset switch, and it should then turn on.

CDs not playing


Clean the lens. Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully. If that seems intact, (and you feel comfortable doing it) check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work. Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.
If that doesn't work then have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.
