Question about JVC RV-B550 Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

JVC RV-B550 Cassette/CD Boombox Hi there. Please

JVC RV-B550 Cassette/CD Boombox Hi there. Please can anyone tell me how to open this unit? With the two halves slightly apart, I can see that there is at least one ribbon cable under stress (coming from the top cd? board) stopping it coming apart completely. I've found a service manual with schematics and PCBs, but no instructions on correctly opening it up. Thanks in advance for any advice on this. Joe.

SOURCE: jvc rv-b99 cassette door jammed

You need to take the unit apart. If you pull hard to open the door, you`ll break the plastic connector that moves the head up and down.

SOURCE: My JVC rv-dp100 Kaboom boombox always has the radio or static from the radio playing. When I try to use the cd player, I hear both at the same time and cant stop it. Please help!

The fault is with its input selection circuit. Seek tech support. Might be an IC fault.

    The tape motor on my JVC-B550 no longer functions. Is this fixable?

    It is qquite possible to fix this. It may not be the motor either. Without seeing the actual unit, I can not state for sure, but quite often it is the belts that are bad. If it is the motor, look on it for some numbers. I don't think that JVC uses Mabuchi motors, but they may. These are generically available and cheap. Post any numbers that are on the motor and I'll look for a source for you.

    Bulb illuminating lcd display panel failed

    go to an electronics store. You need a 12 volt bulb that solders onto a small removable circuit board located directly behind the display.
