Jbl MR5 vs IPOD

I own a 2005 Chaparral Boat with a factory installed JBL MR-5 Marine radio. Is there an IPOD adapter available for this model radio? If not, how can I upgrade to a radio that is IPOD ready without cutting & splicing wires and loosing the rear swim deck radio control feature.

SOURCE: jbl marine mr-17 all funtions are frozen

Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? The reset button is at the panel at the back of the faceplate, bottom left side. Of course doing so will also erase all presets and user settings & configurations.

Additionally, pls verify that the multiple contacts pins are clean, free of corrosion and makes a positive contact with its mate at the rear of the faceplate. If the unit is used in a salty environment, it may be necessary to manually scrape of whatever blue green build up develops between the connector pins and the plastic insulator. You can try using an old toothbrush and WD40.

Further to check are:
1. the red, yellow and black wire are tightly connected where they are supposed to be connected. If the unit is used onboard, it might be to your advantage to likewise check the grounding system;
2. one of the rear connector is for a remote, pls likewise check that none of the pins are shorting and no presence of any corrosion.

If problem persists, it may be necessary to seek the services of a qualified professional as this involves opening the unit up and tracing the circuitry of the logic/controller circuit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a jbl mr17 radio on boat and have activated Sirius but have no Manuel for radio and can't play Sirius. Help


Hi Marybeth,

According to the manual, "In order to receive Sirius Satellite radio broadcast, you must install JBL SIR 3.0 as well as a satellite antenna (both sold separately)"

I've included a link the manual http://prospecelectronics.com/pub/media/wysiwyg/manuals/MR-17%203.pdf to your radio and to the Sirius Satellite Box referenced above. Also listed on that page is two satellite antenna options.
http://www.boaterbarn.com/jbl_scc1bl_sirius_box_for_8085_prd1.htm
Please note I am not recommending you purchase from that site as I haven't personally ordered anything from them. Amazon may have it listed cheaper.

Good luck with your new radio!

I have a JBL MR 15 does this radio have a place in the back to plug in an ipod adapter. I think it is an Aux input RCA Jack The radio is on my boat and not near for me to look at it.


if it has aux input rca's, then go to an electronics or car audio shop and buy a "stereo rca to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter cable" This will then plug into the headphone jack on the ipod.

I have a jbl mr-145 in a hot tub. It keeps powering on and off???


I have the same model stereo in a brand new hot tub that was having the same issue. To fix it all u need to do is pull the front cover off to access the pump controls and in there you will find a black box where a power cable runs yo the stereo. There are two screws that open a little door in the black box. In there you will need a small flat head screwdriver to move a redswit over to the 110 volts position. Turn the radio on and it should work. That black box just controls the power to the stereo.

JBL MR-4 CD doesn't eject


The unit probably doesn't think there is a CD inside. Possible doing a soft reset will fix this. Do so by powering the unit and putting a ball point or other pointed object into the reset button opening either on the face of the radio or behind the face. A hard reset can be done by disconnecting constant power from the unit for approximately 15 seconds.
If either of these methods fail, then your unit has a bad CD mechanism or more than 1 CD inside the player. In that case, the unit will have to be serviced by an electronics repair or a local stereo shop. This is a Marine radio, and if installed on a boat, this problem is not too uncommon. Moist air can cause damage to the unit as well as the bouncing on the water that boats do.
