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 to set up the clock at JVC KD-G396


Hello there,
Here's a link to the user manual for your KD-G396

http://factron.co.za/docs/400/KD-G245-396%20Installation%20Manual.pdf

The section on setting up the clock is surprisingly short... it's found on Page 6 -
------------------------------------
Basic settings
• See also “General settings — PSM” on pages 11 and
12.
1 Hold on the SEL button
2 These options are changed using a combination of the UP, DOWN, PREVIOUS & NEXT buttons along with the Volume Knob. (This is shown with a picture, I'm just trying to translate and interpret what I think they're trying to communicate)
1 Canceling the display demonstrations
Select “DEMO,” then “DEMO OFF.”
2 Setting the clock
Select “CLOCK H” (hour), then adjust the hour.
Select “CLOCK M” (minute), then adjust the
minute.
3 Finish the procedure - by pressing the SEL button.

Set clock on radio


Hello atesha23,

Below is the step-by-step procedure for setting the JVC clock. Please note that after you have entered the PSM mode, if you have not pressed a button for about 2 seconds, the radio will automatically exit the mode and return to normal operating mode. In that case, you must restart PSM by holding the "SEL" button until the display changes.

(1). Enter the PSM mode by pressing and holding the
SEL button until the display changes.
(2). Use the rocker switch left/right until "CLOCK
H" is displayed.
(3) Set the clock hours by turning the volume
control up/down.
(4) Press the rocker switch again until "CLOCK M"
is displayed.
(5) Set the clock minutes by turning the volume
control up/down.
(6) Press the SEL button to finish and EXIT.

Hope this helps.

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
