2000 camry electrical short?

Michelle, I would recommend taking your vehicle to a local Car Stereo Shop or the dealer. It sounds like your son may have tapped into the incorrect wire in the harness when putting in the new stereo. It sounds like a problem of ignition wire is going to ground. Or the constant power wire is going to ground. Either of these issues would cause this problem.

When the vehicle is off and stereo is off the speakers are making loud popping and banging noises all the time over the last week? when the vehicle is running and stereo on no popping noises

This can be tricky; there are several things that might cause this 'phantom' problem. You did not state if you have an alarm system. The alarm may be tied into your speakers and/or linked to the stereo itself. I would not initially suspect a ground issue since the stereo works well while powered. I would suspect a power feed issue. This can be tested by removing the fuse for the stereo and seeing if the issue continues.If the problem stops, the source may be internal to the stereo and you may need to get an aftermarket stereo - or pull the fuse every time you stop ( sucky solution, I know!) . I think this may be an issue resolved by a reputable stereo shop. Possibly a strategically placed Diode may solve the problem - a hands on diagnostic is certainly called for. You did not mention if the problem decreases or stops overnight. I would think this can cause your battery to drain over an extended period of time - and ruin the speakers too, if they're not affected already. I would try contacting the Dealer first and, as this problem has gone unresolved for so long, see if you can get them to replace the stereo or at the least pay the stereo shop to fix it.
best of luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Stereo fuse keeps blowing

Check wiring for any shorts. If none found remove radio and harness and test on a seperate battery or power supply. If still blowing there is a problem with the stereo.

A good local car audio shop can help you out if you need.

My son has had a similar problem. You can take the car to a stereo shop and they can reset it or you may have to take it to the dealer. The guys at the local stereo shop reset my son's for free.

I have the DEH-1200MP model super tuner 3 and it would not power up after battery died and was jumped. There is a fuse at the back of the stereo that I unplugged and plugged back in and then the stereo powered up. I had already checked all of the other fuses. Took me a while to figure this out.

Amp not getting power

check the fusebox and see if the fuse running for your audio is not yet busted. If it is then replace it, if not, then the headunit (stereo) has a fault inside and needs to be repaired by a qualified service personnel.

I had a similar problem, and took it to an authorized repair shop(under warranty), the kept it six months, and JVC finally admitted there are solder connections with that model, and six months later, we got a new unit. I will buy Sony next time

CDE-9845 is not turning on or doing anything.

The only way to know for sure is to see if it has voltage getting to it. You need a Voltage tester (DMM, testlight, etc...). There should be 12 volts on the yellow always and on the red wire when the Ignition/Accessory is on. If both are present then the radio probably got surged and will have to be replaced/repaired.
