The faceplate is missing, and I don't remember which unit I have. According to the installation docs that I still have, it's a KD-S7250/KD-S700/KD-S680. Is there a way I can identify the unit without removing it completely from my jeep?
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.

First thing is to make sure the cause. Do you have clock or any display? Is it a new installation? If so, check wiring. If failed, then the face plate itself could be bad. Call customer relations. the phone number is in the user manual.
Try disconnecting your battery, reconnecting it, and resetting your stereo. If that doesn't work, the constant power (yellow wire) or ignition wire (red wire) may have come in contact with ground or isn't properly connected. Make sure everything is connected properly and try resetting your stereo. If it is still flashing "protect", the unit needs servicing Contact JVC Customer Care Center at: 800-252-5722.
there is a ribbon wire that connects the faceplate contacts behind the faceplate that always go bad on all radios with rotating faceplates. you can probably find this part on ebay or on parts.com or by jvc.
Hit the DISP Button so it is in time mode While holding the disp button press the arrow buttons which are located on the far right of the faceplate hours is the bottom one minutes is the top. I have the owners manual is how I know this.
This head unit comes with a security screw that can be installed to secure the faceplate for retail display. If it was purchased as a demo model, the screw may be in place. To check, the deck has to be dismounted from the vehicle. The screw location will be in the side of the chassis, near the faceplate on the same side as the release button. Removing the screw will allow the faceplate to come off.
