Question about JVC RV-B99GY Cassette Boombox

Display light out

I've had my boom-box for quite a few years and never had an issue. But suddenly a year or so ago the light in the display went out. At first I thought maybe the cords weren't in all the way or it was the batteries. I checked everything and still nothing. Since I wasn't sure what the problem was I tried not to worry about it and deal because everything else worked great. Lately my eyes have started to go bad and I have trouble reading things far from me, which the boom-box is. Now I really wish the light would work so I could see what was going on without having to be almost on top of it to read it. Anyone with ideas of what the issue could be? Should I continue to just "suck it up" since everything else works? Or should I throw in the towel and grab me a new one? Thanks in advance for any help I receive.

I have 2 boom boxes where cd's spin but no sound.

Its probably a lens failure, its quite common, try cleaning the lens,

if all else fails, try turning the unit upside down and load the disc, sometime this for some reason - resets the lens if slighty out but its not fact, just something i heard

Same error on 3 boom boxes caused by one audiobook

Well if they were cheap then they were made in china, they fail prematurly due to cheap parts and poor build quality. CD's dont make Cd players break down unless they are caked in dust or are damaged.

My Sony CFD SO1 keeps skipping/display light keeps flashing

That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.

Jvc rv-dp100 boom box

tune into the station you want as normal. Then on the remote, press & hold the number key for the preset number you want. This will flash in the display to show you it's set. You can preset 30 FM & 15 AM stations.

Cd player on boom box

Hi I don't have a boom box, but i do know a little bit about CD players, and i think first the CD you are putting into the player as to be a proper bought CD, you know official CD, if you have done that, and still have the same problem, then its because the laser light is faulty, which basically means the CD player needs replacing.
