headphones

Post by loopy »



Help please.
I plug my 5 pin headphone jack into either the front or the rear jack but no sound through headphones. Radio working fine on external speakers.
Is there something I am not activating to make them operate.

It should be just that easy, but have you looked to see that the 5 pin Din cables are connected under the tupperware?

If it doesn't work in front or back I would think it is the headset. Do you have access to another bike you can try the headset on? Or another headset you can try on your bike? i don't remember but do you have to set the volume on each setting, outside speakers and headset ?

Let me ask a couple questions first. Has it worked before and just stopped working? Your picture shows the automatic volume control is on, have you tried turning that off? As someone else said, you may have to verify your headset is working on another bike or a different headset on your bike. What headset are you using? Beyond that, you may have to pull the seat and the top off the shelter to see if the cables are properly connected to the stereo. Good luck

I just saw your other thread. I'm going to bet it's a connectivity problem with your headset wiring. You're almost better off to install an actual bike headset and either remove the mic or just don't use the intercom.

Are you pushing the audio button to switch the sound from speaker to headset?
