JVC Car stereo with cd shuts off when volume is turned up
Just wondering if you have any thoughts on this problem. The stereo is wired properly, it just shuts off when the volume is turned up, sometimes as early as 17, then it comes back on, and if you turn it down it plays, if you don't it shuts back off.
My son thinks it's the speakers, what do you think? Will new speakers help? It's installed in a 1994 Nissan Altima.
Thanks for your help
Re: JVC Car stereo with cd shuts off when volume is...
Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.

well it sound like your ground wire is not connected the properly way this wire is black make sure
the other 3 are connect right are Yellow is constant power ,Red is acc.ingnition,Blue is the remote.
that would complite your conection done.
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.
Have you checked all of the connections on the speakers, stereo, etc. Being a marine CD player, the wires and connectors are exposed to more elements than a car CD unit. Check for corrosion and make sure that all the speakers are hooked up to the correct "+" and "-" terminals. Not sure if this will help, but thought I'd try. It does sound like a speaker connection problem.
ok , ive found the problem with mine. I checked the voltage between the earth wire on the head unit and the battery in the car. I found that when i turned the headunit up to around 17-20 there was up to 3volts differance, which is when it would cut out. So ive run a new earth wire and she's all sweet . Even the cd player works now.

Press and hold the SEL button to bring up the settings menu. Press and release the tuning (>>>) buttons until you see CLOCK H. Turn the volume knob to select the hour. If necessary, press (>>>) for CLOCK M; adjust the minutes setting with the volume knob. Press SEL when you're finished.
