Question about Clarion DXZ655MP CD Player

1 Answer

Clarion DXZ655MP Speakers worked then stopped...

I bought this unit brand new, and it worked for about 30 mins then the speakers wouldn't work anymore... the external amp did, but not the internal amp. I disconnected the external completely thinking this was the cause, it wasn't. So I accepted that it was broken, and sent it back... I received the exchange, stereo worked great for about 2-1/2 weeks, and then same problem again! It was soo weird, after 1-1/2 weeks it started to act like it did when this happened the first time, so i turned the volume down, and it resumed fine, and then 1/2 a week later it happened again, only this time it was permanent! I shut off the car, went on inside, came out the next day started the car, and no sound, no nothing! What was going on? Nothing chaged from the day before, it just stopped working all of a sudden. I am afraid that I won't be able to send the item back again, so I want to figure out how to fix the problem if possible. Book says it is the sound protection circuit, and I should turn the stereo off and back on and it will reset. I did that 100 times! All it does when I turn it back on, the speakers just click, and no sound at all! Book says if problem persists to contact tech team. Anyone have a similar problem? A solution is much begged for! I finally got the stereo I always wanted, and now it doesn't work, and clarions are good stereos so what happened to mine? Thanks!

Sounds like the ohm load of your speakers is incorrect and overloaded the amp,....check all your specs, i.e. max, min ohm load on stereo, and speakers,...this stuff is important and must be within the range allowed or stuff like your experiencing happens,'s happened to me before,.....fried my amp because i had house speakers in my van, was great for about 3 loud days,....good luck, cracklin joe,.......

I've just bought one. Is it normal that the hand wheel is hard to turn. Does not that put stress on its motor?

hi, if you just bought this machine, my suggestion is to take it back & get another one.
the handwheel is not suppose to be hard to turn when it's brand new.. I've been sewing for over 30 years & I wouldn't keep the machine, I'd take it back & get another that works properly.

Hi, just bought a used whirlpool AC 29,000 btu. I was told to use a 220 electrical outlet.. do you know how many amps it should be as well? also, it came with mounting hardware, but I'm not sure if...

You will need to have a 30 amp. circuit for that unit...
You need a 30 amp double pole breaker... at least 10 ga. wire and a 30 amp. 220v can get either an external or an internal outlet... if you can, I would go with internal, because it will not stick out from the wall as far, but whether or not you can do that depends on the wiring and how you need to run that...

I have my amp and and subs hooked up right but i have multiple component wires on the back of my vm 9412. i need to know what to hook my component wires to in the back of my head unit and also need to know...

If you are running your speakers/subs from an external amp, then you wouldn't use any of the wires in the back. Usually you don't have any type of menu to change to make anything work. Some units have the ability to turn the signal off to the amp. What color are the wires in the back that you have remaining?

Brand new used 12 times-would not turn back on pulled cover and internal fuse was blown. shutoff procedure using on/off switch only. accessible from back fuse holder should have been used for cases...

if you're blowing fuses, there is a reason. the most prevalent reason for this is shorted speakers, while the final amp is supposed to be protected by fused speakers, many times they don't work fast enough to protect the amp. If this unit is brand new like you say, put the old fuse (blown one) back in and close the unit up, hopefully you haven't destroyed the tab that shows the case had been opened, this unit should be under warranty, take it back or send it back (with authorization) to where you bought it, don't tell them you opened up the case or you will void warranty. good luck

Hii sir ,,,my problem is intenal audio speakers is not working......bit working for external.......this cause a huge problem to me...........sir show me the solution...............

If your external speakers are working and your internal ones are not then it's either a loose connection with the internal speakers or the speakers themselves are not working anymore.

I would try the following; check for viruses, spyware, and malware. Reboot the system afterwards. Reinstall the sound drivers and make sure the soundcard is enabled. If all this fails then you have three options.

1. Order a set of speakers for your system and install them yourself.

2. Have a tech or pc repair shop replace them for you.

3. Continue to use external speakers.

Good Luck!

Jvc kd-g340 rear speakers not working. I recently bought the car with this unit installed. I noticed that there is a l/r cable, power, ground in the trunk which means there was probably a subwoofer...

check the wires in the back of the stereo if not then make sure the back speakers are not hooked up to a internal amp and if it is make sure that it is not blown

No sound condition on 60" mitsubishi CS 40601 (tube tv)

Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Center channel drops once unit warms up

You don't have an external amlifuer, do you? You could hook the pre-amp out for the center channel to an external amp and connect the speaker to the amp. That way you could determine if it is the center channel output or the internal amp. Either way you probably need to get it serviced.
