Question about Clarion XMD3
PURCHASED BOAT WITH CALRION XMD3 RADIO. WHEN UNIT IS TURNED ON DISPLAY WORKS FINE HOWEVER THERE IS NO SOUND, NOT EVEN STATIC. I HAVE READ THE OWNERS MANUAL AND CHANGED BOTH OF THE FUSES. ALSO CHECKED ALL CONNECTIONS- EVERYTHING SEEMS OK. THE UNIT IS SIRUS READY, PERHAPS THAT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. ALSO HAS A "SECONDARY" PANEL TO CONTROL UNIT.
I have a XMD3 with Sirius on a Larson boat. Had same problem - everything seemed to be fine on unit (everything lit up and CD showed different tracks and time changing), but no sound. I suspected a ground problem and checked wires I could see. Found one speaker wire that had been frayed due to faulty installation. As soon as I wiggled that wire I got sound on all speakers. Not sure why one faulty speaker would kill all sound, but it did for me.

Found the issue with my XMD3, mine was on a BBQ island that we bought. the radio was near a braided water line for the sink.The line was leaking around the ball joint, very small leak. Even with a rubber cover over the top water still show how got inside. I pulled the unit out of the island and there was alot of water that came out once the unit was at a angle. Not sure why it would still display, you think it would just die. Both fuse were still good. The back of the unit has vents. I will look for a new unit that has better protection in the back this time.
