    Same thing. The unit (JVC PDR-30) reads "check" but everything is connected properly and had been working fine before. The I-Pod unit works fine when unplugged. Any ideas? Thanks.

    same problem

    I have the ipod touch and when i connect it to the cable, all i get is "check" which keeps flashing. Reading the booklet seems to think that there may be too many playlists, my brother in law has a vw golf and the way he fixed his problem (though not the same head unit ) was to make several playlists and name them A B C and D then his ipod synced ok with his unit. Gonna give this a go tomorrow. If anyone gets the solution to this give me a shout at

    We have the same problem. The 1G nanos work just fine in the unit but the touch does not. It displays a blinking "check" as well. The unit charges but won't play, it just says "accessory attached" on the iPod. I tried using an AUX cable to play music and that won't work at all. Also, I don't have any play lists set up. I looked for a patch online to see if that helps but found nothing. I'd love to get this fixed.

The Touch will not work with the KDPDR30. I spoke with JVC and their models that will operate the Touch are KDPDR40, KDAPD49, KDPDR45, KDPDR41 and KDG47 the last two have a cable required.

I have the same problem. I have a 2nd generation Ipod nano, and it had been worked well for a few months, but no longer works. It keeps showing up the "Ok to disconnect" message, and the JVC device keeps showing up the "check for iPod" message. I wait several minutes, and it don´t work. Is there a fix for this? Thanx.

Jvc kdpdr30..

your 8 gig will work. I am assuming that you are talking about the (charging not supported) message that you get with your ipod. If this is so then you can buy an adaptor that will fix this problem. usually costs around $50

JVC's KD-PDR30 flashes 0:00-A on display

I've just fixed mine. There's a reset "button". Take the face plate off, you'll see a little hole, yes it's a hole. Stick something thin and pointy in it and hold a couple of seconds, I used my earring, a pen tip won't work, I tried. It would reset the whole thing, display should show "1:00". Then you just have to work on your settings, adjust the time, etc. Hope it works for you as it has for me.

Power will not stay on

Sounds like you're not getting voltage on the accessory power lead. This is the red wire at the back of the deck, and it supplies power whenever the key is switched on. It's possible that your vehicle's radio fuse is blown.
