Hello... I am sorry you are having a problem. It depends on the type of stereo that you are refering to. If it is an aftermarket radio and will accept an external mp3 player, then you will see a small 1/8" input port on the front of the unit. I have seen a few with them on the rear, but it is usually a secondary port. If it does not have the port input, and it is an aftermarket radio, then what it is refering to is that you can play a mp3 format disc in the cd player. It does not mean it has the port. If you are refering to a factory radio, then some of them are located in the center console compartments, lower dash compartments or directly on the front of the player. Again, be sure you are refering to an external mp3 player and not mistaking it for a unit that will play a mp3 formatted cd. Hope this helps! Good luck on your venture!!

What make and model stereo is it? most radios that say they are mp3 compatible refer to their ability to play cds burned in mp3 format.

How do I use my mp3 player with my stereo player? I plugged the adapter cord into the earphone hole,no sound came out of the player


Hello

When you plug the adapter cord into your earphone hole make sure that your stereo player is set to auxiliary mode( AUX mode).If you do not set it to auxiliary mode you will not hear any sound,also make sure that the other end of the adapter cord is plugged in properly to the AV input (not output of the stereo player).

I am attempting to reconnect my home stereo but do not see a cord or wire to connect the bass to the system. is there supposed to be a connective cord for the bass speaker? it is a 530 watt MHCGX99 model...


Hi from one Lakers fan to another 8^) - Yes you do. You need a cable to plug into the
sub-woofer out port on the receiver to the connection on your sub-woofer.


If you can't find the original cable, get a short (three ft.) standard stereo cable (one that has two cables, a white and red). Just plug one of the cables (the red or the white but it has to be the same color on both connections) into the receiver and the sub-woofer.


You'll be ready to pump up the bass.


Enjoy and thank you for using Fix Ya

We want to know can we put an mp3 player or the like through the original audio gear . if not can you advise us on what we can do . we have the tape deck which is not good now thanks


Hi,

Does you sound system have an input plug (RCA) of audio?

If does you could buy a cable adaptor that have an output of stereo rca. Plug the stereo jack on your mp3 earphone socket and your ready to play!

If your sound system have no audio input. You should buy a 12 volt amplifier, with an out put of 50 watts( Depends upon your clarity and bass boost) or higher! Use your existing speakers and make sure you buy that audio adaptor cable for your mp3 to connect to your brand new amplifier.

Thanks for using Fixya as a problem solver!

I have an old SHARP HK-9000 Multi-purpose Music syatem...we cant find speaker connectors on the rear. The speakers are detachable and dont have input jacks, just bare wires. Where do they connect??


The speaker wire is supposed to be connected to a mono right angle 1/8" male plug. It resembles the same plugs at the end of headphones used for all sorts of walkmans, cd players, mp3 players... But the plug on your speakers is mono so instead of there being two bands on the plug for stereo, you need the mono variety, the one with one band. They plug into two small female holes located on the bottom rear of the boombox. You might see some small black plastic clips along the bottom of the boombox held in place by one screw. These things are meant to keep the speaker wire from hanging out from the bottom of the boombox.

ILO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo wiring


they all use the same colors. Every CD/DVD player manufacturer uses the same color scheme on all the same wires.

If you're asking what the right wires are in your car i'd get a wiring harness and just match up the wires and plug it in.

However if you're just going to cut off the car wiring harness and splice everything in go to www.installdr.com and use the guides they have.

Plug the cord into the headphones/mp3 port on the front and press function until the MD option pops up. It should work then.
