JVC KD -S680 needs help

Ok I have a big system in my car.. everything has been working fine.. until Sunday... I went and turned on the car and the stereo receiver face plate was warm but everything else in the car was cold... *weird right* well i tried to turn on the radio, nothing, so i took off the face plate and checked it, nothing wrong with it.. put it back on, the face plate *the buttons not the display* all light up.. but you still cant rurn on the power, eject the cd or anything.. Took off the face plate again, cleanred the lil connectors and put it back on, once again, the face plate lights up, but nothing happens, no power no nothing... so i turned on the car the lil button you push to turn on the power automatically lights up, but still no power, no nothing.. .... Do you know what would cause the radio to all of a sudden just die out of no where... Is it time for the white flag for this radio and just time to get another or can it be fixed?

All radios like your has two power inlets one is battery and the other is Acc or Ing. The battery line keeps power in the radio after you turn off your car both lines must work for the radio to turn on it sounds like a resister burn out thats why your face plate was warm.

maybe short circuit or similiar problem inside since its geting hot, probably not a problem with the faceplate I would remove the cd player from your car and take it to a professional for a diagnosis / repair estimate. Can't solve this one with text only.

My jvc kd-g820 will not produce any sound and not accept cd

try to find the reset a little indent on the face or hole when you remove the face and push in for 2 to 3 secs with a pen or paper clip. Then try your cd again. Still dont work check to see if you have another cd jammed inside and your trying to put two cds at once.

Ok for your no sound problem. a bad speaker, short speaker (one 1 speaker shorts out all will not work cause the radio is in a protective mode), factory amp needs to be turned on, bose system or amplified system in car needs to be rewired to bypass factory amp), buy special car harness to make factory amp compatible with aftermarket radio, late ford models the back speakers are crisscrossed.

Next time please give car info and type of system you got in it so I could narrow down the possible problems a little bit easier.

I don't know which JVC unit I have.

no i dont think so. but it is fairly easy to remove if u visit your nearest store that sell car stereos ask them for the removal too for a jvc radio. they should give u to flat L shaped pieces of metal all u have to do is remove the thin plastic trim piece around the radio then on both sides of the radio between the radio and the metal cage that holds the radio they will slide in u may have to play around with them a little till they unlock the radio but when they do all u have to do is just slide the radio to u enough to read a white label on the top of the radio that will give u the model number. should take no longer than 15 min. after that pull the tools out then just slide it back in till u here or feel it lock and your done oh dont forget to put the radio trim back on.

Sound not good

could have blown the speakers or if there sub woofers ran off an amp that might be your problem as far as the cause it could be something as simple as a loose ground or some wire that is getting power grounding out on a piece of metal somewhere i would double check all of your connections
