If you still have this one, I just fixed mine with essentially the same problem by doing a thorough cleaning of the contacts with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. On the stereo side's contacts you'll need to stretch some of the cotton out on the q-tip so it will fit between the plastic ribs.

Re: Lighting problem JVC KD-LH2000
If your unit is a "flip face" design then I would suspect that the flat ribbon cable that goes between the flip face and the main board has lost at least one of the leads and that the cable needs to be replaced. Try Partstore.com for a replacement. Good luck.

Normally, your JVC Car Stereo will not allow direct connection to an Apple iPod.
However, there are several aftermarket interface adaptor that will allow you to do so:
1. Connect the iPod to a JVC KS-PD100 which in turn is connected to the CD changer jack of the KD-G720 (rear of the unit). Set the stereo to CD changer external input setting and you're ready to go;
2. Connect the iPod to an FM Transmitter such as the Griffin iTrip (w/ Dock connector) which in turn will broadcast the IPod music as an FM signal. Operating the KD-G720 on FM radio setting will receive the IPod's broadcast music.
Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
