Most wiring now is standard colors....red=ignition(goes to a switched power source...Yellow=battery...goes to a hot all the time(even with key off)...black=ground...white=left front speaker positive...white w/blk stripe=left front speaker negative...gray=right front spkr +...gray/ blk=right front spkr - ...green=rear left +....green/blk rear left - ...violet=right rear +...violet/blk= right rear - ...light blue or blue with a stripe is the remote turn on lead either for an amplifier or power antenna...some radios have an orange/ with white stripe that connects to your parking light dimmer circuit to dim the radio light with the dash lights....and then you should have the antenna plug and possibly rca outputs that go to an external amp
This radio can not use a common ground. If your speakers are all grounded together you will blow up the amp IC in the radio. The negative speaker wires run at about 6 or 7 volts and so do the positive speaker wires.
Trust me, run new speaker wires, do not common ground any of these speakers
If this was helpful a good rating would be appreciated.
The reason the CD it is gettng hot is because of the amplifier IC in the radio. The CD player is right in front of the amp IC and it is all in an enclosed area with little ventilation. They do get hot after a while.
It is not unusual for a CD to get hot after playing for a while.
The JVC stereos are known for having a bad spindle motor. That can cause the problem you are describing. A bad laser pick up can also cause the same thing.
There is no way of knowing just what the cause of your problem is without having it tested by a technician.
The laser pick up is more prone to failure from heat if it is getting weak.
The spindle motor is a little more common problem with the JVC car CD players.
But I have repaired both of those problems in JVC CD players many times.
I work at a JVC authorized service center, Most of the JVC CD players use the exact same CD mech, whether it is a cheap unit or a more exspensive one.
The only user action that you can do is to run a cleaning disc thru it for about 20 to 30 seconds. But that is not going to change your problem, you need to have it checked out at a service center, but if it is not under warranty it may not be worth getting fixed. The repair can run from $70 to $125 depending on the rates of the service center.
