Re: remote wire

The one with the rem tag at the back should possibly be it. Although I still advise you to consult the box or manufacturers wiring guide.

I won't recommend attaching it to the live side of a cigarette lighter because some products might get burned doing so, but some do work with this method...

I have been given an old JVC stereo for my son - its all separates though we wont be using the tape deck - anyway I just dont have a clue about what wire goes where and its driving me nuts!!!!!!! Is there...

You don't mention the model number, so this info is generic:
Think of it like water flowing, in one end and out the other. Each patch cord will run from the input to an output. The receiver or amplifier has inputs for the tuner, tape deck(s), turntable (sometimes high & low) and auxiliary, which could be TV or whatever other sound source you have, a cd player, e.g.
The outputs from the various sound players will go to the inputs on the receiver. The tape deck will also have an input - that's for the tape out from the receiver, which sends a signal of other sources to the tape for recording.
If there's a separate amp and preamp, the preamp output will be the amp input.
Use red on right, white on left, and be consistent.
Speaker wires should be connected in phase, i.e. make sure the striped side of the wire is always either plus or minus, but be consistent from speaker to speaker, and do the same on both ends of the connection, from amp(receiver) to speaker.
Here and here are a couple of links to helpful articles for more information.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Sony CDX-M850MP Remote wont work when front panel closed.

The problem is the flexible wire strip that cracked. I just had the same problem. A guy has them on auction on e bay. Type in model number and flexible replacment for search.

Fix by.
1. Unscrewing 2 the two screws that connect faceplate to motorized flip bracked. One on each side.
2. Unscrew the screws that are connected to the back plate. Plate directly behind faceplate with Blue LED.
3.Unclip backplate by sliding Deck out 1 inch. Two clips on each side.
4.Unclip the waferboard/circuit board from the back plate.
5.Remove Flexible wire band that connects the faceplate to backplate.
6.Attach new flexible wire band to deck then to face.
7. Reclip everything, Rescrew everything.

Whalah it is fixed.

Bose wave radio/cd often cd spins but does not play, sometines will correct if I turn unit off and on. HELP tHANKS

I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell
