JVC KD-AVX33 pairing problem

I have a KD-AVX33 which i bought in JAN 08 which I use with my HTC TOUCH. All has been working for a while until last week when I have not been able to synch my phonebook , received calls , sent calls with the KD-AVX33.

So i though I would disconnect and connect my registered bluetooth device (HTC TOUCH) from the KD-AVX33 , whenever i did this the phonebook would be available immediately but then when i switched off the KD-AVX33 unit , phonebook would still not be displayed even though I can make calls etc..

I decided to delete my existing pairing setting for the HTC TOUCH and try to perform a new pairing. Now the problem is that i does find the HTC TOUCH device it does able to connect with message "Connected 6"...(no idea why there is a 6) but the "NEW DEVICE" logon still keeps being displayed on the Bluetooth Phone and Bluetooth Audio sections even after being paired . Also when I go on the bluetooth settings even although having been theoricatically paired am unable to perform Connect / Disconnect as it is not enabled.(greyed)

Then whenever i turn off the KD-AVX33 unit and turn it back on again , it cann't detect my bluetooth enabled HTC TOUCH , i need to reperform the pairing. I tried doing a reset by clicking on the reset button but it didnt help either .

Would any of you have an idea what could be wrong ? And how to reset the KD-AVX33 to factory settings reformatting the unit to new?

    Hi i tried the initialize settings too but that didnt work. I think this is used only to initialize AV menu settings and not re-initialize to factory settings.

    Was wondering if i disconnected the battery from my car for X hours whether the KD-AVX33 unit would lose all stored settings and return back to factory settings.

    Disconnecting the unit from the battery didnt reset any either ...any one has had similar problems ?

    I'm using the JVC KD-AVX11 with KS-BTA200 bluetooth add on. I got the same problem. What stated in the user manual the device can be paired up to 6 device profile. to delete it you have to remove pairing.

    Hello I've got a problem with BTA200+S/e 910i. 5 weeks it works preaty well but on the six it lost all connections and now i could only connect with phone manualy only as a NEW device but can't syncronize (pairing) and ad a phone in a BT menu.

  • threepointtw Jan 13, 2009

    I have the exact same problem.  It appears that after you pair 5 phones, it will never again let you pair another phone nor delete old connections.  Reset does not affect the Bluetooth settings and I cannot find an answer in the manual or on the JVC site.

    In my KD-AVX33 happens exactly the same that javed2 describes, but mine is an HTC Diamond. I've tried to pair several other phones but I get the same result with all of them. If I try to pair using option "open" I get "connected 6" and if using "search" I get "connection error" but in any of them I get the phone properly paired, I always see "new device" on screen and handsfree BT works until the unit is switched off.

    May be, if as someone said, the solution is using another faceplate we could try that if some of us are located in a close location (I'm in Madrid- Spain).

  • Anonymous Feb 13, 2009

    I must say that xda is right, if you open the faceplate there is a parrot ck5050 chip that is responsible for BT communications. Something in it stops working properly and that's the reason for our problems, so probably the best solution is changing the faceplate (or open it and change the chip, it's not very difficult) with another AVX33 user.

    i have ks-bta200 bluetooth would it pair htc diamond touch phone

  • xlr8rfixya Apr 20, 2009

    I have same problem, I have changed phones 3 times recently thinking it was the phones at fault. however after reading these blogs i see i was wrong to do so.

    i have a LG renoir, only way i can get phone to connect is first to go into bluetooth menu on the KD-AVX33 and choose OPEN, set a 4 digit pin, then on the phone do a search, it sees the KD-AVX33 once i key in the pin it connects but only shows as NEW DEVICE on the head unit. only available dialing options on the head unit are TELEPHONE NUMBER, all others are greyed out. All my older phones connected fine until one day this all started. I have never been able to get any phone to bluetooth since this started either, making me believe there is a limit (fault!) that the head unit goes haywire after so many pairings.

    does anyone know if that chip in the face plate can be easily removed and replaced ? or know a source to get one ?

Bluetooth LG to my Kenwood

you need to make sure both the Kenwood and the LG have bluetooth enabled. Then you pair the two using the pairing function in the LG. Hopefully this should enable you to play music from LG on Kenwood and also receive calls. As you have not provided any model numbers it is difficult to say whether the phone and your Kenwood audio systems are compatible.

Best to go to this website and select the correct model numbers and find out which features in your LG phone will work with your kenwood.

Do you have a Bluetooth adapter plugged into the KD-R330?

A compatible Bluetooth adapter (like the KS-BTA100) usually plugs into the rear auxiliary port of the receiver. It then needs to be "paired" with your Bluetooth device, for example, a Bluetooth phone headset.

What you're describing sounds like what can when no Bluetooth device has been "paired" yet.

If you don't HAVE a Bluetooth adapter connected to your it possible you accidentally plugged something into its rear auxiliary jack? Or the front auxiliary? In other words, is it possible your KD-R330 receiver is mistaking some other device for a Bluetooth adapter?

Don't know if that helps at all...if there's no adapter issue, and nothing connected to the AUX jacks, probably your next step should be a call to JVC, or whatever number you were given for tech support.

On the bright side, since the receiver turns on, and responds to some commands, you probably didn't mess up anything major in the wiring. And, there's also the possibility the receiver is defective....certainly if this continues, and JVC can't help you, trying a replacement might be worth a try.

BTW, feel free to post a reply...I'm going to look further to see if there's any other documented issue besides an adapter that might cause the problem you're having.

All you can do is trace the wiring back from the radio to the speakers, there is no quick fix here. To test the speakers touch a battery to the two contacts, the speaker will pop if it is any good.
