Question about JVC KS-FX250 Cassette Player

1 Answer

Tape player keeps switching sides

The tape deck to my head unit keeps switching sides nonstop when u put a tape in. i didnt try to clean it cuz i didnt have the cleaning kit thing and its not hooked up right now. wanted to see what it could be first.

also, the sound only works on one side. is there a fuse i can replace in the head unit or did it just decide to stop working completely. right now it is wired to one side so i have sound on all speakers.

any advice or anything you know would be very helpful with repairs.

Thanks

The adapter is tripping your radio's auto revere. The radio thinks it's at the end of the tape so it switches sides. Tape adapters especially the cheaper ones are made a couple 100,000 at a time an sometimes the machine that makes them is off so it makes bad adapters. If you look at the face of the adapter you will see a silver head in the center just to the left an the right of the center hole you'll see two smaller holes one on each side. look inside these holes an make sure there's nothing in them no padding or plastic tabs. If there is anything in these holes remove it. This is whats tripping the auto reverse .These hole should be about a 1/4" deep . next with a small razor blade shave all four sides about the same as the thickness of the blade this should remove any burrs or misshapen plastic.

I am putting an external amp to run my subs and i need to know where to hook my remote wire to from the back of the deck


Norrmally the head unit/deck has a blue wire for the remote in the Pioneer set. So check this out and use a meter to see for voltage when the head set is switched on. Now you can connecct this as the remote swiching required for your amplifier. hope you look into the back side of the head unit ,in the cluster wire from the connectors. Good day

Car Cassette Adapter keeps flipping from one side to another


This is a faulty firmware problem in the player. It may have a faulty internal capacitor that is screwing up the player. You can use a capacitor tester to find faulty capacitor or replace with a cd player

Jammed cassette tape in car stereo


your cassette seems to be jammed, try removing the player open it which should reveal the trapped cassette then try to carefully remove the tape as it may have got stuck around the capstans(rubber bits) sometimes when tapes haveen't been played for a long time they tend to become loose, try to ensure that the tape is tight by using a pencil inserted into the spool and turn it until the tape tightens please take care not to over tighten. good luk

Pioneer DEH 1700 not working now


I'm guessing that you wired the 2 units together including the speakers? the 2 units may be of different potentials and can't be wired together like that...they would need diodes or a relay to isolate one from another.. first you need to see if you toasted each of these by separating the wiring and trying them separately...just a thought

Flashing PROTECT


This is often caused by a problem with the speakers or speaker wiring. A speaker wire that's pinched behind the head unit will cause this problem if it's shorted to dash metal or the deck chassis. The first thing to do is remove the head unit and inspect all the speaker wiring for bare spots or pinched spots. If everything looks okay, disconnect all four speakers from the deck and switch it on. If it still shows "protect" then you have a defective head unit. If not, then turn it off, re-connect one of the speakers, and turn it on again. Continue until you find the speaker output that puts the deck into protect mode.
