TROUBLESHOOTING

If you suspect something is wrong, immediately switch the power off. Do not use the unit in an abnormal conditions, for example without sound, or with smoke or foul smell, which can cause fire or electric shock. Immediately stop using it and call the store where you purchased it. Never try to repair the unit by yourself because it is dangerous to do so.

General 

  1. The ship’s/Car’s engine switch is not on. – Turn your Ship’s/car’s key to ACC or ON.
  2. The cable is not correctly connected. – Check the connection.
  3. The fuse is burnt. – Replace fuse.
  4. Volume is in mute or minimum. – Check volume or mute on/off, and adjust the volume to a desired level.
  5. Sound skips. – The installation angle is more than 30°. Adjust the installation angle to less than 30°.
  6. The operation keys do not work. – The built-in microcomputer is not operating properly due to noise. Press the RESET button to restore the program to zero.

Radio

  1. Much noise in broadcasts. – Station or signal is too weak. Select other stations of stronger signal level.
  2. The antenna cable is not connected. – Insert the antenna cable firmly into the antenna socket of this receiver.
  3. The preset station is reset. – Battery cable is not correctly connected. Connect the battery cable to the terminal that is always life.

INTERFERENCE

All cables can source and create interference. The power cable and Cinch/RCA audio cable are very prone to interference; the remote cables are less prone. There is often interference caused by the generator (piping), ignition (cracking), or another vehicle/or boat electronic parts. Most of these problems can be eliminated by correct and careful cabling. In doing so, here are the following guidelines:

  • Use only a screened audio cable for the wiring between the “low level in” of the amplifier and the RCA or DIN output of the radio.
  • Lay the signal, speaker, and power cables separately with enough distance from one another and also from each other car cable. If not possible, you can lay the circuit and ground cable together with the serial cables. Audio and speaker cables should be as far away from these as possible. The REM cable to the automatic antenna output of the radio can be laid together with the signal cables.
  • Avoid ground loops by laying the ground wiring of all components to a center point in a star-like way. you can find the best central point in measuring the voltage directly at the battery. Now compare this voltage value with the chosen ground point and the (+) terminal of the amplifier. If the measured voltage is only slightly different, you’ve found the correct central. Otherwise, you have to look for another point. You should measure with the ignition point for the earth being switched on and additionally switched on consumers (rear window heating and light).
