Car audio amp (?) issue

My JBL car stereo head powers on, can change stations and shows that the CD is functioning...but the only sound coming out is a constant beeping from the speakers. There was plenty of warning regarding trouble coming as the sound would go dim, sometimes off and occassionally pop and make other odd noises unexpectedly before this happened. Any clue if this might be the head or the amp? Is there a way to remove the amp and have it tested? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Great to receive a response and then followup so quickly!
    The guidance is appreciated. One small snag...this is a Toyota made model with proprietary harness wiring. No one in town, not three radio shops nor two toyota dealers I visited had the ability to confirm the condition of the amp due to this wiring configuration.
    Now I'll pull the amp out of my OTHER toyota and plug it in to check...wish me luck!

To me, it sounds like your "Output Devices" in the MAIN Amp have gone faulty. BUT check the OUTPUT directly at the Head Unit & then the Amp's terminals to make sure.. if ya dont have any signal comming out of the "Head Unit" than thats ya fault.. however if that has a good signal out,there, then it's gotta be ya Main Amp. Ya can check to se if there is output with a small speaker with wires on it, or my favorite an modified earphone, with the wires ends exposed so ya can "Touch" them to the Output terminals/Plugs etc, of whatever ya wanna test. NB: Only test at a low level output.

Have 2004 Toyota RAV4....installed new double din stereo radio....unit powers on can change stations...indication that sound is coming through the radio but I get no sound


If your RAV4 originally had a JBL radio, the steering wheel has provisions for control of amplifier volume. The JBL also has a MUTE output which may be preventing the amplifier from turning on.

Jbl radio A56840 loses station presets and no volume


Toyota vehicles have a fuse in the kick for the amp and sometimes there is located under the hood ... This is the switch turn on for the amp ... And 1 of the fuses is most likely the memory or constant power. B sure to check all fuses ... I do not have AllData pulled up . If the fuses are all good the amp or radio may be bad ... Or both ... Be sure to check all the fuses ... Many times I get clients that say allthe fuses are good and it is still the first thing I check ..Usually is a fuse ..Good Luck

There is a beeping noise coming from my Blaupunkt Nashville DAB35, how can i stop this?


is the beep sound only happen when you listen to Radio? or other source also have? because beep sound may generate on Radio station if TA is ON for traffic anoucement but that particular station do not have TA info, so Radio may beep during checking. You must go into Tuner menu list to off the function.

How to lock in radio station on kenwood face off cd player


once you have the station you want to listen to on the radio press and hold one of the buttons along the bottom of the stereos face for a few seconds the screen should flash for a second or two or it should beep as well to indicate its saved it.

if when you turn the ignition off and then turn it back on the stereo has forgotten the station you programmed you need to remove the stereo from the car and check the wiring at the back of the unit. most of them have a red and yellow wire that are joined by metal push fit connectors, swap these two over and it will then remember the station for you.

the red wire is the switched power lead from the ignition and the yellow lead is a constant live feed for it to remember your settings, if these are round the wrong way it will keep forgetting radio stations you program until you switch them over.
