SOURCE: radio works on tech bench, not in the boat

Yes, the yellow wire is the switched hot lead - it is typically connected in one way or another to the ignition switch. There is also a smaller gauge red wire that is connected directly to the battery (through a fuse of course). Both of these wires have to have power for the radio to work. Also the black wire has to be connected to a good ground. If all three of these wires are confirmed to be in good order (power where there should be power, ground where there should be ground and no shorts) the radio should at least power up when they are all hooked up and the ignition is on.

SOURCE: We suddenly have lost sound from our radio. All

possibly the speaker harness in back of the radio came loose, and fell out. remove the radio, and check the wiring harnesses.

Hope this helps

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.

Tip

Adjusting your gain for your amplifier, or amplifiers


I contacted JBL, and Pioneer about the RCA outputs of the DEH-P5800MP. I got a question answered by JBL that you should gain your amplifier, or amplifiers at half of the Head Units volume, in which case the 5800 model has a max volume of 62. I would assume that this goes for any unit since I didn't give JBL the model or brand, which indicates that they are giving a tip on every, or most units unless specified. You can e-mail the manufacture on what unit you have just in case yours is different. I found after a good conversation with the technical support guy at Pioneer that you should turn your volume up to 25-30 (25 for your loudest CD, and gain it from there. I told him that I was an audiophile and he suggested that I could gain it at 45 for my lowest recorded CD. I have been installing and gaining systems at 3/4 volume, or if the max volume was 62 then I would gain my lowest recorded digital CD at that volume. I was amazed that JBL had an answer for probably 90% of the head units, and I have learned something new. I was under the assumption that the higher the volume the more voltage the RCA's put out allowing you to be able to have your amp gain at a lower level. From my experience of 12 years, hearing both companies say roughly the same thing it is apparent that Pioneer units with a 2 volt output should be gained at the 25-30 volume range(probably for your lowest recorded CD. I have CD's that are pure digital and bass CD's and CD's that are recorded louder (like techno music, or alternative music) If you know what you are doing, and can hear distortion, like I can, the tech said that I could gain it at 45 for the lowest recorded CD. This allows your lowest recorded CD to be played at max volume at 30-45, and your loudest CD's would be at peak volume before 30, or 45 if you choose that route. Keep in mind that less power blows speakers before more power does. That is the best advice I can give, and I will adjust my system accordingly to there recommendations. Thank you

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

Have to use rf gain control to control volume. no control or very little with af gain control. ft101ee


RF gain is not used to control volume. It's used to adjust the sensitivity of the radio. If you have a station nearby that's very strong that you wish to listen to, turning down the RF gain will help reduce distortion and/or interference. The control for Volume is "AF Gain" (Audio Frequency Gain). You want to use it to set the volume level.

Radio changes stations by itself and volume goes up and down all by itself. just not working properly. whats going on?


My solution was just to buy a new wired remote on ebay for $50. That way I had the same dimensions for the cutout on my center console. Essentially the remote is a remove and replace item. I bought one in chrome and just traded out my old cover and bezel which was a grey plastic.

My JBL Marine Hot tub Sterio quit working suddenly?


JBL is at best a low quality marine grade brand of stereo. It is now garbage. I have worked on hot tub stereos for many years, PolyPlannar is the only one that is any good. If it was bought 30 days ago, where's your warranty?
