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.

    Sorry Guest, Factory settings inizialize all ... except BT settings. It is not valid.

    I tried to swap the display unit with anotre and the problem is solver. Here resides the "intelligence" of BT, including phone settings...

    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 ?

Do you know anything

In the JVC KD-AVX33 manual, page 31 they wrote: "You cannot connect a computer to the USB terminal of the unit." So, how you would connect the computer to the unit ?!?

No sound when making a phone call

Try to delete paired phone and to make the connection again.
Once my phone was connected (showed on the screen), but no sound !?! :( and I couldn't access the phone (address book, call list...)
I deleted it from the unit ("SRC">"Bluetooth Phone">"AV Menu">"ENT">"Delete Pair">"Yes") and make the connection again and everything was OK.

HDD with videofiles not working

I had the same problem on memory stick. If I have pictures only on memory stick it is working (pictures played in a slide show). After that I've try with a mixed CD (MP3 + pictures) and was the same problem - only MP3 played. I think KD AVX33 doesn't know to read both type of files at the same time.

JVC KD-AVX33 stopped transmintting sound to speakers.....

I am experiencing battery drain from this unit. It gets blazing hot while not in use! I'm thinking the only option I have left is to install a switch on the 12v constant power wire, but then I'd have to set it up all over again each time I get in my car. I don't know what else to do. Stupid JVC with their stupid customer service reps. There will be no JVC products in my future.

Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I bought this model also. It depends how much power the external drive uses. The models with 2 usb cables usually don't work because they require more power.

The hdd cannot be bigger than around 20GB, not more then 12 folders and no more then 2500 files. I saw at some forums.

If you have a pen drive at 8 to 12 GB i don't think you have problems with these. anything bigger and you have to be lucky.

Maybe at my company i can try some drives as we have them to test/use.
