Source Keeps Switching To Standbye

When I have my headunit on any source, Sirius, CD, tuner, etc. it will randomly and automatically switch to Standby mode, then it will flip back to the source I was on, and then back to standby. A lot of the times I have to hit the source button to switch it back. I have cleaned all the terminals on my faceplate and the brain itself. Could this be something with the wiring? And if so what would it be? Or does the unit itself need to be sent in to be serviced. Any help would be appreciated Thanks! Albert

There's nothing in the wiring that could cause this problem; sounds like a fault in the faceplate. I would say the unit needs to be serviced.

Alpine 9886 with sirius interface


This problem sounds very sirius. Sorry, couldn't resist, but "siriusly", the song alert feature is supposed to be something you select yourself, so it locates a particular song whenever it is played on the service. Do you recall setting this?

Are you using the Alpine KCA-SC100 tuner or another?

I would try resetting the radio too.

Clarion Marine Problem w Sirius CeNet Unit


When a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver is added to a system, the source unit’s main wiring harness must be disconnected before the changer and/or satellite receiver’s CeNET cable is connected to the source unit. Otherwise, the source unit will not “recognize” that a CD changer or Sirius satellite receiver has been added.

Kenwood Kdc-mp425 will not switch to Aux. Aux cable is connected to the back of the headunit, but no aux option is available on menu for either my ipod touch or my sirius unit. I've accessed the menu from...


Apparently, this auxiliary input only works for a Kenwood CD changer or a sirius radio connection. At least that is my conclusion after finding the same problem. Let me know if you figured anything out on this.

Can't select satellite option when pressing source button.


The Sirius Tuner is separate from the AM/FM/CD, check the plugs between the two. If all is snug, pull the SIRIUS tuner and go to a JVC dealer that would have any deck w/sirius as an option and plug it in. If it sees it, it's more than likely a problem with your deck. My guess is it's a bad SIRIUS tuner. There have been LOTS!!! Good news is there easy to replace if bad, and there cheap! $45.00 from Crutchfield rebuilt.

Aux input. Kenwood ecelon dpx-701


You have to go into the menu and turn it back on. It is in the menu under "built in aux" and just switch it to on.

No Sirius or Sat option when pressing Source button


Once everything is connected including antennae, there must be period of time for the head unit to recognize the SAT tuner (SC-C1 in this case). When I started up the car the next day the head unit automatically tuned itself to the Sirius preview channel.

Mp3 to aux input


Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.

Your going to need to pull off the battery cable for about 2 to 5 minutes and see if this will reset the radio. Good Luck
