#38 of 57 Re: MP3 radio upgrade [pathstar1]
Apr 07, 2007 (4:05 pm)
Still trying to figure that one out, I went to the dealer, and the cd player they show doesnt look anything like what is in there, and doesnt look like it would fit without modifying the dash. I am wondering if the 6 disk MP3 player/radio unit from an 06 will plug right in and work as I found one of those.
#39 of 57 Can't get the mp3 player to work in '07 Prius
May 15, 2007 (7:39 am)
Does anyone know how to work the mp3 player/Aux on the '07 Prius? All files on the player are .wma or .mp3's and when I plug it into the Aux it shows it playing but there is no sound. Dealer told me I needed to increase the volume on the player itself and increase the volume of the car stereo. That didn't work. Any suggestions??

I have found that when I play my Palm (mp3)via the AUX output it only plays on the left side speakers. I am going to try a different connection to see if it will out put on both sides. Also need to make sure your balance is set correctly.

You have to select the aux. jack input on the MFD Audio screen. Once you do that you should get full stereo. If you only get one channel, then you have a connection problem. Check the cable, make sure the jack is correctly wired.

#43 of 57 Toyota Prius Radio Problems
Aug 26, 2007 (2:49 am)
I have a 2004 Toyota Prius with the #9 package including JBL Sound and Navigation. The car has a little over 26K miles and has been relaible, comfortable, and economical so far. I have noticed a problem with fairly severe "bleed through" of electrical static and whine through the audio section when the radio is played in AM mode. Its a function of the throttle position and is definitely related to the hybrid drive power output. The dealer noted that a shield cover had fallen off the dash speaker. After it was replaced I had no static for about three weeks, but its back now with a vengence. I have found reference to the static problem in one other place, and suspect that its a lot more common than that. The problem started soon after the display was replaced. ANyone have a similar experience? If so, was it resolved?
#44 of 57 Toyota Prius 2004 CD player Problem
Aug 27, 2007 (7:40 am)
I have Prius 2004, and my CD is not working. I can't retrieve CDs, Display shows "CD Error" message. Looks like one CD stocks somewhere in the middle of tracks or any other mechanical failure. At DealershipI was told that the whole unit needs to replaced (exchanged) and it would cost $600.
Is anybody have a similar experience, or suggestion on what can be done to reduce the repair cost?

I've got the same problem. This should be covered with the warranty, correct?
#46 of 57 "Pop" heard between songs w/MP3 player
Oct 07, 2007 (11:51 am)
Okay, I've got a 2007 Prius, package 2. When I am using my mp3 player and the AUX connection, I get a "pop" between songs. Other than that, the sound is fine. Anyone have a similar problem? So far, I've tried two lines and heard the pop with both lines. I've got a Sansa mp3 player. When I borrowed an ipod, no pop. So, it seems like the player is the problem. Suggestions?
#47 of 57 Mp3 Aux Jack Causes Mp3 Player to Reset
Oct 20, 2007 (11:01 am)
I have a 2008 Prius with 6 CD mp3 player and an auxiliary jack. When I plug in my mp3 player (Creative 30GB), the player almost immediately resets and rebuilds its hard drive, and it continually does this making the mp3 jack useless, and perhaps endangering my mp3 player. This is unique to the car stereo, as I hook the player up to my home stereo, computer speakers at work, etc., with no problems. I figure the car stereo is sending some electric current into my stereo, rather than passively accepting the audio, but whatever it is I'd like to know if anyone has suggestions?
