I just installed a jvc kd g825 and i have a iphone 4 when i plug it in it says reading file and starts charging my iphone but wont play any thing any solutions?

I had a similar problem after I updated my iPhone 3g's software to 4.0.1. I read that if you turn off your iPhone, then with your car/stereo turned off, plug in your iPhone. Now turn on the car/stereo which will turn on your iPhone automatically and "re-initialize" the relationship with the iPhone. This worked for me. Hope this helps. If not, check the Apple forums.

My jvc kd-g820 will not produce any sound and not accept cd

try to find the reset a little indent on the face or hole when you remove the face and push in for 2 to 3 secs with a pen or paper clip. Then try your cd again. Still dont work check to see if you have another cd jammed inside and your trying to put two cds at once.

Ok for your no sound problem. a bad speaker, short speaker (one 1 speaker shorts out all will not work cause the radio is in a protective mode), factory amp needs to be turned on, bose system or amplified system in car needs to be rewired to bypass factory amp), buy special car harness to make factory amp compatible with aftermarket radio, late ford models the back speakers are crisscrossed.

Next time please give car info and type of system you got in it so I could narrow down the possible problems a little bit easier.

The USB function on my JVC KD-AR880 won't engage. It "File Search" forever. I'm using an 8gig USB Flash Drive (Corsair), and it has approx. 2.3gigs of music on it. All file types are suported...

How long have you left it in the head unit while it says "File Check"? With 2.3GB, it may take a while to finish it's check.

Have you tried doing a disc scan of the flash drive with your computer? If there are file system issues on the drive, that could make the head unit unhappy.

According to the manual, file names can have up to 25 characters, but ID tags can be up to 128. It doesn't say what happens if you go beyond those limits. Check your folder/file name lengths.

If you're using a USB extension cord, try it without.

HDD with videofiles not working

I had the same problem on memory stick. If I have pictures only on memory stick it is working (pictures played in a slide show). After that I've try with a mixed CD (MP3 + pictures) and was the same problem - only MP3 played. I think KD AVX33 doesn't know to read both type of files at the same time.

Cant connect ipod

its probly your ipod. the new classics arent compatible with alot of dock connector related acesories. before you get to angry about your ipod try it with some of your friends crappy old ones to see if they work still. if they dont work then take your deck back but if they do work then you might want to take the deck back and try to find a newer model. good luck ; )

Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I bought this model also. It depends how much power the external drive uses. The models with 2 usb cables usually don't work because they require more power.

The hdd cannot be bigger than around 20GB, not more then 12 folders and no more then 2500 files. I saw at some forums.

If you have a pen drive at 8 to 12 GB i don't think you have problems with these. anything bigger and you have to be lucky.

Maybe at my company i can try some drives as we have them to test/use.
