Hi,
sounds like the unit is going into 'protect' mode. It does this normally if there is a fault in the speaker connections.

you have to check all the speaker wires to make sure they are connected without touching each other and that the wires are not shorting out to the car bodywork, or any other metal surface.

If everything looks ok. you'll have to check that 1 of your speakers isn't blown.

Regards

Philip

How so I set the clock on a Jvc kd-s15 cd player


Hello... sorry to hear you are having problems. What you will need to do is to power the radio up and press the "sel" button and hold it. It will take you to the main menu where you will then use the left and right button (the one that changes the radio stations) until it tells you "clock h" then turn the volume knob to set the hour, then press the right arrow again and it should say "clock m" then turn the volume knob to set the minutes. After that, press the "sel" button again and it will take you out of the menu. Hope this helped!

I'm unable to turn off the "demo" mode on a jvc KD-R210 car stereo. When I follow the directions on the instruction sheet "demo off" does not come up as an option. Any ideas?


hold your sel button until it takes you into your menu and use your track skip buttons till you get to DEMO and turn your volume knob to the left until it says off and then press select again to get out of your menu. :)

How do i set the time and remove the demo setting


Hello again johnworley6,

To set the time and/or cancel the demo mode, you need to enter "PSM" mode. Do this by pressing and holding the "sel" button for 4 seconds. Use the left/right rocker switch to select the item. Turn the "volume" knob up/down to change the item. Press "sel" again the exit PSM mode.

So to turn demo mode off: 1) Press and hold "sel". 2) Press right until "demo" is displayed. 3) Turn volume knob until "demo off" is displayed. 4) press "sel" again to exit PSM.

To set the time: 1) Press and hold "sel". 2) Press right until "CLOCK H" is displayed. 3) Turn volume knob until correct hour is set. 4) Press right until "CLOCK M" is displayed. 5) Turn volume knob until correct minutes are set. 6) Press "sel" to exit PSM.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

Radio not playing


it sounds like you didn't hook up both your power wires on your cd player. there is a red and yellow power wire. one is constant power to keep memory and the other turns on the radio when the key is turned. check to see if both are hooked up

My JVC KD-S25 will only turn on when I press the eject button, and then it shuts off in 5 seconds.


I just bought this stereo and installed it the other day. I had the same issue. Hook the Yellow power wire and the red accessory power wire to the same power source. That solved my problem.

Stero stuck on demo mode, cant remember how to turn it off. it is a jvc kd-g240


You will find the demo mode in the settings menu. It's options will be on and off and are reset to default each time power is disconnected from the unit.

1st, hold the "SEL" button
2nd, use the left/right arrows to select option "Demo"
3rd, turn the volume knob until "OFF" is displayed
Then, lastly, press the "SEL" key once more.

Here is a link to the pdf document for the instruction manual off the JVC website: http://books.jvcservice.com/Download/717497409/GET0485-001A.pdf
