If you can replace the speaker wire would be the best way to repair your sound but if you cant replace the whole speaker wire you might have to replace a section or join the wire together using a soldering iron or a crimper joiner peal at least 2-3mm of the plastic covering the speaker wire separate/spread the wires then intertwine them together to solder them together you must flux the wires before soldering if you use the crimper slide the crimper on to the wire before you intertwine them or you might just join them together intertwine them and place some electrical tape around the join
hope this helps

How to change speaker wires?


Depending upon where and how thoroughly the wire was chewed, you may be able to cut out the bad section and splice the remainder.

I NEED TO FINALIZE DISK BUT MY DAUGHTER'S PET RABBIT CHEWED THRU THE POWER CORD, I HAVE 2 FULLY CHARGED BATTERIES FOR THE CAMERA BUT I DON'T THINK I CAN DO IT WITHOUT THE POWER CORD, SOMEONE HELP.


You´re just right: Finallizing is a delicate procedure because you never know exactly how long it takes. If there is any interruption, the whole data is lost forever. That´s why finalizing should always be done with the AC-plug. Get it repaired and put this rabbit to court (smile).
Best wishes

I was whatching my daughters dog while she was away on business at my home. some how some way he managed to chew off the yellow connector plug for the speaker and chewed it up beyound use, as well as chew...


I was able to catch a glimpse of the back of this unit. I cannot tell by the picture but it is either a RJ11 connector or RJ45 Connector. RJ 11 is the connector on your landline phones and RJ45 connectors are used in computer networking applications. If you have either of these cable laying around you can verify which is which, after that if you do not want to buy the crimp tool for these connectors I would suggest sacrifice whichever cable it ends up being (RJ11 or RJ45) and splice your speaker wire to the two active leads, + and -. Good luck!

Speakers suddenly dead?


Investigate the "no green light" condition -- did some animal chew through the power-cord? Did some child pull the power-cord out from the outlet? Did your room-mate go on an "energy-conservation" binge, and turn the speakers off?

Stereo Wiring 1984 VW Rabbit


The red wire is power, brown is ground. There also may be a second power wire (possibly yellow) that is switched though the ignition (test this with a light), if you hook it up that way you won't drain your battery by accidentally leaving the stereo on!! The best way to determine what wires go to what speakers is to take each pair and brush the ends across the ends of a "D" cell battery! the corresponding speaker will produce a bit of static! The wires with the stripes are the negative side of each speaker circuit. Hope this helps...;-)

I have a word titled "PROTECT" on my kdc mp333, how do I get it to function properly again? Pls reply asap.


When the stereo goes into PROTECT mode it is due to a speaker wire having a short circuit or is touching the car chassis somewhere.

Check all speaker wires from the unit to the speakers.

First check that each pair of speaker terminals at the speaker end is not touching. Or, a wire fell of 1 terminal to rest on another.

Best way to check if it's a blown speaker or a wiring short, is to disconnect all speaker connections ( at the speaker end ) making sure the disconnected wires don't touch each other or any metal in the car. press the reset on the unit and power up. If the unit powers up ok, then its a blown speaker.

Otherwise it's a short in the wiring.

If it's a blown speaker, you can connect 1 speaker at a time and the blown 1 will send the unit into protect mode again.

If it's the wiring, disconnect the unit from the wiring and use and ohm meter to check each pair of cables. A reading suggests a short.

If you don't have an ohm meter a battery and bulb will do. This method usually works on a short.

If you have no joy with either method, take each speaker wire in turn and check with a source of earth (anything metal connected directly to the body of the car, cigar lighter main body when pulled slightly out is good)

Protect


Protect mode would indicate that the system is shutting down due to a fault in the output which drives the speakers. You can check the speaker wiring, are there an loose or frayed wires? Any small "whiskers" or wire touching anything? Check the wire all the way to the speaker for damage, some pets love to chew wires! Are you using the original speakers or added extra? The impedance of the speakers must be in the range shown on the back of the unit. Have you perhaps had the volume up very high? This could result in speaker damage that could also cause this error. Try disconnecting the speakers & see if the unit powers up, if it does then put the speakers back one at a time to discover the faulty one. If all this checks out OK then the output stage itself is probably faulty & that's a job for the repair shop. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Power light switches to red.


I suggest rechecking the speaker wiring in case there is a small "whisker" of wire touching either the case or adjacent terminal, also check the speaker end of the wires for same. Do you have a pet? I have seen wires chewed partly through by cats (& rabbits)! See the information from the manual below: http://207.228.230.231/manual/NAD-C370.pdf
