Question about Jensen MP5720 CD Player

1 Answer

Jensen MP5720 radio/faceplate connector is broken or missing spring

There is a plastic component with two tabs/prongs that project through the front of the radio body. The faceplate of my Jensen MP5720 is supposed to snap onto these tabs, but the component has no compression to hold it forward to make contact with the faceplate. It just swings/falls back inside the radio. I think someone forced off the original faceplate and broke something off this plastic component or made a spring come off, or both. I don't know what this thing is called, but I'd like to get a replacement. I've taken the radio out of the dash and taken the sleeve off and the front off the main radio body, so I'll definately be able to swap it out if I can get the replacement part. Got any ideas where I should try to find one? Thanks!

I was always afraid this might happen to me so I never removed the faceplate from the radio. This strategy worked fine for two years until two weeks ago. I didn't lock my car because of the freezing rain and somebody stole my faceplate and remote. Anyway I ordered a replacement radio from Amazon last week so I don't have rewire a new one. The replacement cost me $100. I don't really need the rest of the radio so make an offer, my email is cs1713@sbcglobal.net

HOW DO I FIND REPLACEMENT FACE PLATE & REMOTE FOR JENSON MODEL #DV2007


Hello,
Here is where to get a replacement waterproof remote - http://www.jensenmarinedirect.com/jensen-waterproof-wired-remote-control.html With these marine radios the faceplate is usually the first thing to fail from water damage. Not that your is water damaged but because of this finding a used one is impossible on the net. You will have to contact Jensen for to see if they have the faceplate available separately. http://audiovox.com/jensen/ Good luck.

How to change the faceplate of a samsung s7330


  • Locate the small plastic tab on the top of your Samsung phone, located in the groove between the faceplate the main phone body. This tab is very tiny, only about one-sixteenth of an inch wide.

  • 2

    Press on the plastic tab with your fingernail.

  • 3

    Continue holding down the plastic piece while sliding the faceplate off the top of the phone. The faceplate only slides off from the top, so don't try to force it in a different direction.

  • 4

    Release the plastic tab.

  • 5

    Line up the new faceplate with the top portion of your phone then slide it downward until it latches into place. You'll typically hear a soft click when the faceplate is secure. When properly placed, the new faceplate should not be able to wiggle or slide unless you press down the plastic tab once again

    The face plate does not light up anymore on my Jenson CS2010X so I can't see the stations. How to fix this?


    You might not be able to fix this problem. But first, here is a sugestion you can try. Remove the faceplate and inspect the metal contacts on both the deck and the faceplate. Each contact operates a different function of the radio such as providing power to illuminate the faceplate. Make sure no contacts have been broken, pushed in, or have corrosion. Once they all look good, replace the faceplate and see if it lights up. If not, its an internal problem with the unit and should be professionally repaired or replaced.

    Go to the Jensen Website and call up their technicians they might sell you a radio harness for like $10- $20 Most retailers won sell you a harness for each radio has its own and no extra. Or you can try to find a broken similar Jensen radio and unplug its harness or go to Best Buy roadshop where they install radio's and they may have a spare jensen harness.
