So I just bought a used 9887 and it looks nice but I only get sound from tuner. Using external amps. cd timer goes and ipod too, everything displays but no sound. WTF?? I reset the unit by pressing the small pin sized button behind the face and still same.

Thanks in advance.

Check that you are using the blue/white (remote turn-on) wire to trigger the amplifiers to turn on, not the solid blue wire (power antenna) ;).

The solid blue wire only carries +12V when the tuner is selected and will turn your amplifiers off when selecting other sources.

That was it, I never look at which one I use, I guess not all power antenna connections are powered the same way. Thanks.
