Question about JVC Arsenal KD-AR3000 CD Player

1 Answer

Won't turn on

I had this cd player in my car and after awhile I kept getting a faceplate error, all that I would have to do to fix that would be wiggle the faceplate or take it off and put it back on. Eventually the problem occurred more often so I decided I would take it out and clean it make sure everything was good. After taking it out and putting it back in it wouldn't seem to power up. So I took it back out and hooked it up in my house using a couple speakers and a battery charger to give it power. The big problem is I know it is getting power because it responds to the display button, it lights up, shows the time and all that good stuff. Also, the eject button seems to be functioning properly. I looked at a similar post and the solution was to check the fuses, and I did that all the fuses are good so I was curious if there could be another problem.

My only other hypothesis is that, similar to my wife's Kenwood deck that has the MASK motorized faceplate, the flex cable that connects the moving faceplate portion to the main unit has started to crack and lose connection. After a few years of moving back and forth, folding and unfolding, this seems to be a pretty common thing. I was able to replace the flex cable on my wife's deck, but only because I stumbled across detailed instructions (with pictures!) and I got lucky with the replacement cable being in stock at a local repair shop. Your mileage may vary :)

Faceplate won't open all the way

Sometimes the mechanism is misplaced, just disassemble that mechanism and turn on radio without the secondary plate and wait until the motor to get to the final position when it turns off again, reassemble.

It sounds to me like you may have a bad volume control switch. Unless you are good at unsoldering and soldering, I would suggest you have it repaired by a professional. Either that or see if you can find a replacement face at a pawnshop or something like that.

Unable to remove faceplate or eject cd on kenwood

remove the to of the unit, then the two in the actual cd player, pull out cd player, there will be two more screws,these hold the faceplate assembly in place, remove them. This will allow you to pull a small plastic hook down to let the face plate slide out. then remove the face plate from it's holder, slide it out. Remove the four screws on the back of the faceplate inside the there is a very small piece of plastic that has a hole at one end and squared at the other. This is the problem causing piece. I suggest super gluing this piece where it attaches to the inside of the faceplate. This should fix the problem.

there is a ribbon wire that connects the faceplate contacts behind the faceplate that always go bad on all radios with rotating faceplates. you can probably find this part on ebay or on or by jvc.

The player will not eject the cd but it will not play it either.

I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.

Head Unit going goofy

If the unit has a removable face take a pencil eraser and try shining up the little contacts on the back of the face and the radio. See if that cleaning helps.
