    Exclamation AUX CONNECTION with bad sound

    Hallo everybody,

    I'm an owner of the KDC-PSW9524 and I made also my CA-C1AX by myself,costs only 1x 10K resistor 5 cent instead of 20 euro for a stupid cabel , and I get the AUX in my LCD with sound (very great )
    BUT :-( one problem, the sound itself, No noise but it sounds like an 8bitrate sound , really strange, the CD and Tuner of the HU gives excelent sound, and my Ipod itself gives excelent sound with a headphone connection! so it's not the Ipod. the problem has to do with aux connetion I made.

    -I can't figure out, why the HU gives this bad sound quality through the AUX
    -Could this be a short in the circuit I made between the Audioground(-) and
    Audio L(+) or Audio R(+) ??? or is it an internal failure in the HU itself????

    Can anybody tell me what I did wrong?????

    Thanks for reading my reply [/QUOTE]

    I think that it could be a short circuit. Check the connections in the aux plug and in the 3.5" jack.

    Fake Changer

    I tried all those resistor links but got as far as NO CHANGER , so I got a bit frustrated and gave up until I purchased faulty second hand CD-changer with 13-pin cable. I tried to repair the unit but it looked like it needs some parts and it may be expensive to repair even I do the job myself. I used to repair consumer electronics. Then I came up with same idea as fastedie. I just removed the main circuit board and connected that to the headunit. Yes, it said E99 error message meaning something is wrong with the changer.
    I just tapped the pins with wet finger and could hear noise from the speakers, good.
    Then I connected a 3.5mm jack into the points and had to replace 2 electrolytic caps so I could fit the jack directly into the metal frame where bigger transistors are connected to, More testing using my HP Ipaq 2210 as MP3 player. Good sounds. Then I went for a longer drive and had to plug in car charger for the Ipaq. This caused noise, bugger. I added 10uF elcaps in series with the input and this helped quite bit. Maybe shorter cable would be the answer or improving the filtering on the charger?
