Question about JVC KD-S550 CD Player
It started when I left my lights on and my battery died, I jumped my car and everything is fine except my stereo won't turn on. The fuse in the car is fine, the stereo's power button still lights up but nothing happens when I push it! What could be the problem? Help me please!
At most that I can share with you are generic.
If this is a fairly new car/radio model - When your battery died, the radio assumed that it was forcibly removed from the original vehicle it was installed to. For security purposes, the radio will not be usable by anybody not unless re-initialized (security unlock) by the original dealer of the car. You need to bring documents as proof of ownership, VIN information, and all others as may be required to your car dealer who would then submit them to an online support that would verify authenticity of claim and if the "numbers" match. Thereafter, a series of codes and procedures would be given to your dealer who in turn would use them to restore the JVC to operational status. There is nothing wrong with the JVC other than it will not let the user use it.
There is no known bypass to this. There is however a modification that could be done to prevent from happening again.
If the car/JVC does not employ the above described security feature, then chances are that internally, the JVC has developed a fault. Since this would require opening the unit, electronic circuitry diagnosis and possible component replacement, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified auto audio technician.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
