Input/cut out Hi i have two questions: 1, I have pluggled my ipod into the cd changer connectors but cannot switch to the input on the head unit-does the unit need a line voltage to tell it the cd changer is there? if so how can I fool it into thinking this? 2. The unit seems to cut out during playback of minidiscs and reads error 11 or error 12. how can I solve this? many thanks. windsor

With the first question, if you are using an ip-bus to RCA adapter to connect your iPod to the CD changer port on the back of the radio, it won't be recognized until you turn on the AUX function on the radio. In the main function menu (usually gotten to when the radio is powered off), there is an option to turn on AUX1 or AUX2. Do this (consult owner's manual) and you should get your audio to play through.
With the 2nd question, the errors may have something to do with the file format on the discs. Not sure though.

Does using an ipod/AUX adapter through the CD changer input stop a real CD from working?


you have to change it from the Aux setting to CD when you want to play cd, some cd players switch to aux. automatically when you plug inthe aux. cable. and may have to be unplugged when playing cd.

How to get an ipod to work on an Alpine tdm-7544?


Alpine has a din to RCA connector for that unit. That is the cd changer input.

Or buy a fm modulator and go thru fm.
Or buy one of those cassette tapes with the headphone wire coming off it and plug it into iPod. Like they use to do with Sony Walkman CD players.

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...


Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

CD changer output not working


There is an obscure setting for 'AUX' on/off that is hard to find unless you know what you're doing or looked in the manual. Typical Pioneer for ya.

JVC Daisy Chain


If your autochanger has an input as well as an output connector it will be possible. The iPod adapter would have to be plugged into the changer's input, and the changer's output cable would run to the KD-G421.

This manual here from JVC shows a diagram on the middle of page 1 where an i-Pod adapter (I'm assuming you have the KS-PD100) is connected daisy-chained with an XM tuner or a DLP unit. Although it doesn't explicitly say that it would work with a CD changer, I don't think it'll be a problem as long as you have an input on the changer.

Cd input?


I'm afraid it would be a complicated task to tap into the line input on the cd changer connector because the line input only becomes active when a changer is connected, so you would have to connect a device that would talk to the head unit to tell it that a changer was there

Hi, Normally, your JVC Car Stereo will not allow direct connection to an Apple iPod. However, there are several aftermarket interface adaptor that will allow you to do so: 1. Connect the iPod to a JVC KS-PD100 which in turn is connected to the CD changer jack of the KD-G720 (rear of the unit). Set the stereo to CD changer external input setting and you're ready to go; 2. Connect the iPod to an FM Transmitter such as the Griffin iTrip (w/ Dock connector) which in turn will broadcast the IPod music as an FM signal. Operating the KD-G720 on FM radio setting will receive the IPod's broadcast music. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.

MD/CD Changer Control Options


press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
