Question about JVC KD-SX780 CD Player

1 Answer

Compatible changer My son's KD-SX780 was stolen from his car. He can't find another one to buy to replace it as it's been discontinued. I am trying to find something comparable that would work with the changer he currently has in the car. (Do I need to know the model # of the changer to ask this question, I wonder??). Assuming the changer he has in the car was working with his KD-SX780, can you recommend another CD player that he could buy to replace the stolen one, or a particular model series that are all compatible with his old one? Thank you. (I am trying to surprise him so haven't done too much digging about the changer model).

Re: compatible changer

Vicki As far as I know almost any high end JVC will match a compadable changer from another JVC product I say on MOST they will but to be sure IF I was you I would go into a automotive audio store like ABC warehouse or any good electronics store. NOT the super stores like wally world!! there salesman will be able to tell you if its compadible but your gonna need the model of the changer or borrow your sons car and they will look at it as a matter of fact some stores will even install the dash radio for free if its a simple install after you buy the radio. Hope this helps as I know what its like to get radios and equipment stolen from your car as I used to live in NY and in a period of 5 years I got 4 cars stolen and 12 audio systems stolen.!!!! GOOD LUCK and lets know how this turns out??

JVC KD-SX780 All of the sudden--just stopped working.. If you touch the "display" button--the display does come on briefly--otherwise nothing.. Any ideas??

There is a grounding tab on the back of the unit just above the antenna connection. This must be solidly connected to a GOOD ground. Found out the hard way myself. Once ground was established, I never had that problem again.

Strange noises when changing songs

I have had two of this exact radio and wish that the first one had not been stolen.Just a quick question, do you have any subwoofers or a disk changer installed in the vehicle? With my replacement radio (it is very picky about operating temperature), I have noticed that cheap audio cables tend to produce feedback that is mostly heard between songs and a bad j-bus cable will cause feedback from the disk changer.

Yep May sound silly but do you have a dedicated line for youe B+ going to your amp section or Main B+ Line??? you as well should not I found from expereance use the factory B+ line to run an extras power type radio as its not really built or made for that. also Make sure you double and tripe check the grounds going to the radio as well and do not also use the factory grounds as they should as well be dedicated and that means right from the battery for the grounds.. Now a simple but very good way of getting a dedicated B+ line thats a switched type (only one when the keys on) Is to use a 12 volt 25 to 30 contact rating relay and use the cars original power wire for the 12+ for the relay coil and the ground from the original radio. Now one side of the relay can go directly to the battery and the on side when active can go to the radio.. simple but very efective.
