Sorry to say but to fix it you would have to find someone who knows a lot about these units. I doubt you would even be able to find such a person, but looking wouldn't hurt. If you want to keep the stock HU, your going to have to replace it. My recommendation is to go aftermarket, the stock HU has a built in EQ that deteriorates the sound quality. A new HU will give you better sound with new speakers, and a lot more features. If you really want to replace it with an OEM unit, I actually have mine that I'm selling. It's a lot newer and in bettter conditon than anything you will find on ebay. Let me know if yur interested.

Hey, take the unit out and have it tested at your local Stereo Shop..

That usually works for most people...

It is possible it's not the headunit. But I would say it's safe to say there's 95% chance it's the HU. The amplifier is built into the unit, everything is built into it ever the cd changer. Unless you find a shop or someone privately that repairs them, you going to have to replace the whole unit.

EDIT: Has the harness been hacked up at all? Does it still have tape wrapped around it right up to the harness? Other than the HU, the only other problem could be wiring. Is there anything plugged into the AUX port on the bottom, like XM? Try unplugging it and see if that fixes your problem. You could even unplug the harness from the radio, get a pin out diagram of the plug and with a multimeter check the resistance of each speaker (should be 4 or 8ohms, 0.00 ohms means you have a short), than check for continuity to ground. Maybe a short int he speaker wiring is causing this. Other than that I don't know what to tell you, sorry.

Dude please hear what I'm saying. The amplifier circuit is built into the the HU. There is no way to just replace the amp. That is prolly not for a 7th gen, and if it is its not just the amp but the whole radio unit without the face plate and HVAC controls. I would do some research before buying that if that's what it is. These radio's are locked, and you may not be bale to just just swap parts out like that.

Are you sure that's from a 7th gen? Are you in America? The EUDM or JDM accord may have an amp in the back, but the USDM 7th gen accord does not. I own one...
