Strange intermittent beep

Post by wyzard » Thu Jul 12, 2018 1:11 pm

Every so often my radio will beep as if it's waiting for me to talk. Doesn't go to any other screens just beeps, the volume lowers.

I have the Excelon DNX694S, Maestro RR and MUS-1 Kit. Everything's working and i don't have Sync setup for my vehicle on the new install.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

does the radios screen show anything like an exclamation point or anything like that, or it just lowers the volume?

I'll double check but I don't recall seeing an exclamation point. The volume just lowers.

I verified that there is no exclamation point. The volume just lowers.

Check the firmware version number for the radio, there may be an update for it. I attached the instructions for that radio so you know what firmware needs to be updated and what to do.

also, have you noticed the beep happening when you are doing something or just when nothing is happening?

I have the most recent version of the firmware installed. (did that as i thought it might be the issue). There is no rhyme or reason to when it happens. It's extremely random.

when the volume lowers, how long is it lowered for? if you press volume up when the volume is lowered does it make the volume come back to normal?

The volume lowers as if it is waiting for me to give a voice command. The volume goes back up after about 5 seconds once it doesn't hear a command.

I'll see if pressing the volume up restores the volume.

Wyzard,

Curious if you figured out the cause. I have the same set up and it just started doing the chime. I've only had it installed a week and it didn't do this the first couple of days. I thought it may be an alarm based on a gauge but couldn't find anything yet. It's not speed dependent either.
