Re: 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.

JVC RV-DP100BK orange backlit illuminate LCD display stop working?

You need a new bulb installed - difficulty is semi hard , in that you must take apart the boombox , remove the shroud around the bulb , unsolder , resolder new one ..take the old one to an electronics shop to match.

    I get very loud feed back when i put my jvc rv-b55 on. The speakers move violently backwards and forwards. Fault appeared out of nowhere. any ideas anyone many thanks

    Could be down to some faulty capacitors on the Output or Input side, these can sometimes go open and cause voltage spikes which would explain why the speakers are moving strongly in and out. Id see about getting the capacitors changed on the audio board, or see if any of them are buldged. The capacitors look like small cans and can be either blue or orange with a black stripe down one side.

    Ac/dc plug doesnt energize boombox. What should I

    several days ago I get my blaster from ebay (don't like that new version in girlie size, is there a pink hello-kitty version out now?).
    The first thing on my macho man machine I repaired was the bulb for the display. Also I modified some internal wiring as of the weak 12V DC connector. Inside there are two fuses, one 8AT for the transformer and one 6.3AT for 12/15 VDC. Probably on your machine this fuse is imply blown off. To unmount the front and rear part of the assembly you need a pretty long slim screwdriver for two deep buried screws. I made it by my own (**** blade, works well for that slow-torque screws) of a slim rod. Also remove the bass speaker covers with Allen key nr 4. Two of the screws on each side are dummy screws. Also remove two of four screws of each bass speaker and loose the others.

    Display light off

    Yes it can, you`ll need a soldering iron, solder and a small 12 volt bulb , it is directly behind the display on a removable circuit board. You`ll need to bend the tabs straight and wiggle it off.
