Question about Clarion M235-RET CD Player

1 Answer

I have a Marine Model M235 and need the wiring instructions. I removed a old cassette and hooking up the Clarion CD/Radio. It is getting power but no sound from speakers. This unit has more wires than the old. I have only two speakers. Can you give me the color code for the wiring ?

Common wiring for 2 speakers should be.

gray is Rt. +
gray with black stripe is Rt. -
white is left +
white with black stripe is left -
Black wire with crimped connector end is ground for deck. (battery -)
Red wire goes to 12 volt + source (fused) usually connected to ignition/accessories.
yellow goes to constant 12 v + for radio memory.
orange with white stripe, is for illumination. (connect to light switch)
blue is for power antennae if you have one.

you have to open the unit cover to remove the CD, its probably tried to eject it and its past the point that shows one in the slot which is causing the player to say NO CD , once opened, use great care in moving anything, and keep track of where everything goes,

Disconnect all the speaker leads and then hook one speaker (a new, known to work speaker) up directly to the radio using a short (6"-12") piece of speaker wire. Does that speaker work then?

CD PLAYER IN boat says ACCS and does not work, i have power and i checked the fuse's all working but the screen reads ACCS and i cannot remember how i fixed it the first time this went wrong,


OK, so I spoke with a Claion reseller and they were very nice and helpful. ACCS mode is accesory mode. This can happen if the brown wire in the back touches ground or the case on the radio. If it is not, tap the brown wire on the yellow(hot) wire and that takes it out of that mode. I tried it and it worked. Good luck! And thanks Clarion for your support on my 3 year old radio!

When volume is turned up the radio shuts off


Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.

It needs a new CD mech. Hopefully you can exchange it from the shop you got it from.
