Question about Clarion CDC1235 CD Changer

Open Question

CDC 1205 compatibility - Connections

Clarions website of past models is skimpy to put it lightly. I recently got a boat with a Clarion CDC1205 12 disc changer and a blank spot where the head unit was. I have figured out that it is C-Bus and have the cable from the changer to where the head unit will go. Can anyone tell me if any other cables need to go to changer (power cable?) and how I can tell if a head unit will control the changer?

Thanks in advance

SOURCE: getting error #9 on clarion

Check the antenna cable or antenna is connected properly to the back of the unit, and check the cable all the way along to the antenna - these are prone to internal corrosion when they get a bit old. Easiest way to check is to get a new antenna and cable (they are cheap) and plug it in directly to the back of the unit.

Check the ground connection of the unit is good - any terminals might need a clean up - disconnect the battery first.

out of focus.
if all of your discs have the same error code 6, it is optical lens problem. have it checked to the nearest service center.

Yes we have a cruiser boat with clarion radio. It will be working then suddenly shut off with the display reading 'ACCS' It almost acts like a loose wire- does it with discs also.


It's a wire fault. Check your connections are secure and are not bouncing as you travel the water. If wiring is OK then the problem could be internally. If that is the case, it is less expensive to replace the radio.

did you go to best buy and ask them if they have the wiring harness to adapt it to a 2000 chevy blazer if not write clarion at clarions website and ask them for the color diagram or you could also call your local car audio installation store and ask them as long as you have the model number and stuff im sure there shouldnt be a problem with that

There are two types.

My screen went dim and only the power button works


Most likely an insufficient ground is the culprit. Clarions are VERY dependent on a good ground. Check your connections - again...redo the ground if there's no change. If that doesn't work, take it to your local car stereo installer and ask them NICELY to diagnose the prob (probably free) if they do it FREE, buy the dude lunch $10
Good Luck

No back light on display


I know that most Clarions have an "illumination" wire usually orange and or orange/white. If the unit only has one, then most likely it is for a "dimmer circuit" and not atraight illumination. Let me know. If by putting power on tat orange wire does not do it, then you have a bad "bulb" in the faceplate.
