I tried to input my iPod through the aux inputs in the back. The receiver will not chance to AUX source. I tap the source button and it cycles, Tuner-CD-Standby, but no AUX. If the iPod is playing I can hear it in the rear speakers when in "Tuner" mode, and still hear the radio in the front and rear speakers at the same time. Really weird. Any help is appreciated.
Try putting the unit in standby via the src button, before then enter the menu and select or switch on aux1...then press menu again to store it...it should then have an aux option via the src button when the unit is next activated.

Re: Can't get into AUX source
Are you sure it is an AUX input?
According to the Manufacturers Specs, the AUX, is an optional accessory.
There is a Pre-Amp connection, which would be an output, hence causing the problem you are having.
Best of Luck.

You can connect it to any one of the input sources on the receiver. It doesn't have to be AUX. For example, you can hook it up to the CD input (#5 below).
The Ipod can be on any input that you have available, just make sure the receiver is set to that input on the front to correspond with whichever one you decide to use. If you have no available inputs to use, go to RadioShack, you will be surprised at the little connectors they have to allow you to split inputs and outputs to use two devices, etc. very inexpensively.
An alternative, disconnect one device to hook up the Ipod to that input when needed.
put on standby mode. then hold in "menu" button.
go through the list by pushing the right hand trigger down. there should be an option aux1. change this to turn on and aux input is on the source option.
If your audio system has aux input then buy a compactible cable to connect your 3.5mm output oprt to the audio systems aux input. then change the audio source is Aux input in your audio system and play the audio using our ipod.
Turn unit off by holding the Source (volume knob) button until power is off.
Now, hold down the Function button (FUNC) until the unit turns on. You will now be in the Initial Settings menu, a special menu. Press the Function button (FUNC) again until you see the word AUX, press up to enable it, then press the Source (volume knob) button until you see AUX. It works now, congratulations.
Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier.
If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
