JVC CD player won't turn on, but will eject CD and display time.

My JVC car CD player won't turn on. it will accept CD's and eject them and will display the time when the display button is pressed. but it won't turn on or do any other function. it used to work just fine but suddenly stopped. i know it's not in the CD player itself b/c i bought a new one and it does the same thing when plugged in. could it be in a wire? is there a way to fix it?

    Same problem. Mine happened yesterday. Exact same issues as read here. I will check the fuses... I guess I just assumed it WASN'T the fuse since it was able to display the time, etc.

Make sure the red wire is still connected or make sure the red wire hasn't been severed. Also, check the fuses located in the engine compartment. The red wire connects accessory terminal in the fuse block. Also check the fuses in the cabin. This fuse box is typically located on the driver's side, at knee level, next to the door panel, and underneath the dashboard. As a last resort, the unit can be taken to an authorized or factory service center.

I just had the same problem when fitting my JVC car CD player to an Astra but then I checked the relevant fuses in the car (it will say in your manual which one(s) are for the radio) and lo and behold the radio one had blown.  I replaced it & now radio/cd player works fine.

I have just overcome a similar issue with my JVC car radio head unit, it is receiving power in so much as it lights up when you push the eject or display button but wont do anything else, the wiring into the block was done according to the colour reference on the sticker on the head unit itself, I tested all the wires coming from the vehicle side and checked all the fuses I also checked the fuse on the radio all was in order and then I removed the unit and connected it directly to a 12V battery to see what the issue was and had the same result ruling out any issues on the car side, But then realized the issue was that the sticker on the unit indicating the function of each wire was wrong, on my unit it read as follows, Red - remoteBlack - earthYellow - 12V primaryOrange & White - 12V Dash/Ignition
Blue - accessory(i think?)
there was another colour brown I think but it had no function relevant to my setup, I am not discussing the speakers here so those colours are not mentioned. I then connected direct power feed from the battery to the Yellow and RED and hey presto the radio was fully functional, If I followed the wiring diagram strictly then there would be no requirement to connect power to the RED wire as this is supposedly for the "remote" feed but it appears that this is where the issue is.
I then put it back in the car and tried to connect the ignition feed to the RED and the primary to the YELLOW in the vehicle and this worked but only when I switched the ignition on, I was hoping this setup would provide power when in the off position but it appears not to have done so, I have not done any further tinkering as I was fed up at this stage and only too happy to have gotten it to work, I assume that you can get the radio to switch on when the car is off by linking both the yellow and red to the main 12V feed but I have not tried it yet.

Your CD may not be music CD. Some car radio doesn't accept MP3 or WMV files. Change it to a good radio such as JVC car radio.

I have a jvc am/fm cd player kds-30 it has no eject button anywhere and i can not figure out how to eject the cd


The eject button is just above the JVC logo on the display panel.
When you press eject and if it displays "NO EJECT", then it is locked. Press and hold CD and Power (ATT) for more than two seconds.

Jvc kd lx111 deck wont eject cd


I just had this problem today and when I attempted to eject the CD it would give me an error message that stated (ERR 32). Apparently this means that there is something blocking the movement of the screen, a little manipulation should help the issue. Another variable could be the Eject lock feature, essentially a "child lock" for your disc. When this lock is activated it prevents the CD in the deck to be ejected. You can change this by holding down the blue source button and the eject button simultaneously for about 2 or 3 seconds. A message should appear saying "No Eject" and one that repeatedly flashes "Eject on" These two things seemed to help me alot when I had this issue. If those things don't work I would recommend calling JVC, much to my suprise they were actually really helpful. Their number is 1-800-252-5722.

The eject button is the load button on our 2005, maybe the same for you. Just hold it in for a few seconds and it should spit out your cd. You should be able to lightly put the cd up to the insert space and it should take your cd. If your cd player holds multiple cds then perhaps there are some in there that have not been ejected. Hope this works for you.

I would suggest checking the accessory (red wire), the yellow is a constant feed from the battery, which will allow the clock to be displayed no matter what. The accessory wire is what is used to turn on the cd player. You may need to restrip the red wire and check the lead going to the red wire with a test light to make sure it is getting a voltage light.
