Question about JVC RV-DP100 Cassette/CD Boombox

Aux In Troubleshooting

I just bought a 3.5mm male-to-male audio cable to hook up my iPod to my JVC RV-DP100 boombox. Once I plugged it in, there was no sound whatsoever. Then, I tried turning up the volume to max on both the boombox and my ipod and I heard the faintest static and music being played. I was very frustrated when I found this out because I have been wanting to play good tunes from my iPod on my boombox for very long. So if anyone has any suggestions about the 'aux in' port-- please don't hesitate to help. Thanks.

Re: Aux In Troubleshooting

Make absolutely sure you have AUX selected for the sound source & the cable is plugged properly into the aux in 3.5mmm socket & not the headphone socket, as they look the same on the back of this boombox. The volume on the iPod will need to be set quite high (around 75%), but switch the iPod's EQ off to keep the sound clean.

Faulty 3.5mm male to male cable maybe? I had the same problem with a cable I made myself, the wire was too thin and was just twisted together. I made it from 2 extension jacks I bought from a dollar store. I re-made it properly with 3.5mm jacks bought from an electronics store with thicker wires that I soldered on. It worked fine after that.
