My Mp3 Is Not Working

Recommended Posts

I have a sony walkman Mp3 player and have purchased an auxiliary audio cable to plug into my 2010 yaris, however there is no sound. I have checked the cable on my PC and the Mp3 is running ok. Please can anyone help, as I am sick of messing around changing cd'setc

Cheers

If I understand right, you have a 2010 Yaris with a standard AUX port and it doesn't make any sound when you plug the MP3 player into it, but the MP3 player and cable has been tested on a PC and the MP3 player is definately sending sound out of the cable.

My first question may sound daft, but have you definately read the car manual and changed the car radio "Source" to select "Aux" as the input to use? Just checking... The port won't work automatically, you'll have to tell the radio to use it as the sound source.....

My next check would be to try a different device just in case. If you take a portable radio or a laptop or any other device with a "headphone socket" and use a 3.5mm plug to 3.5mm plug cable to connect that to the aux port.

(These cables often come with PCs or monitors or TVs and are typically used to connect PCs to PC Speakers - I've gathered a few lying aroung the house in drawers so I suspect most people will have one somewhere...)

If it still doesn't work, then take it into your dealer for them to check out under warranty.....
