Question about JVC KD-AVX2 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

No display on faceplate unless I push on it

I just installed my new avx2 today and after everything was done, the display will not stay powered on (no display and no button control) unless I push on the faceplate a bit.. this is VERY frustrating as I depend on my car stereo for entertainment on long drives I have many times each week. I have pulled the unit out, checked it all over, and put it back in several times and it still does this.. The sound works fine, I just have no display unless I put some pressure on the faceplate. I have tried wedging something under it to hold the pressure there but it turns on and off when I drive. seems like the face mechanism is a bit flimsy.. this is very dissapointing because I had high hopes for this head unit. regardless, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. thanks!

    I might have figured this out.. it not perfect, but I can get the
    screen to stay on now while driving. I tightened all the screws
    on the back of the faceplate and the two around the electrical socket
    on the front of the head unit, and I then clicked the face-plate on
    with a firm push on the side with the release button (the side with
    that couples the face-plate down) and it seems to be working ok.
    *knocking on wood*.. but I need to push on the face plate to get it to
    come on when I start the car.. but so far it's stayed on while driving.
    here's hoping this continues to work.

    PS: I cleaned all the pins with pencil eraser, then with q-tips
    and cpu thermal grease remover (2-part solution). that in an of
    itself may have fixed the problem. thanks for the reply also!

Three possible faults. Irst choice would be connector on radio you see when faceplate is removed may have some oxidation on pins. Sometimes with a small fine point file or dental pick you can try to scrape off any visible oxidation use caution not to bend any pins and be sure radio has no power . 2nd choice could be worn flex cable that connects to main p.c.b. and Third is chassis that keyboard connects to may be slightly bent causing a bad connection. I have a PDF service manual if you need it

Faceplate opens to remove the faceplate but there is no display?

you probably have a bad flexible cable (goes from the face to the main motherboard). unless you are good at desoldering and soldering, you may want to have it done by a professional.

Display is out

is it detachable face?? do you detach it a lot? it could be the connection between the faceplate and the stereo. gently push against the faceplate and see if it flashes back on?? BE GENTLE!!! maybe a slight wiggle while you push. if it flashes on at all you should try to have it serviced or replace it altogether. Good luck.

The Top Right Button (I Think) tilts the faceplate. You have one of three setting for the tilt then it goes back to flat. You need to press the button while the unit is on of course, But, I know it's one of the the Four Corner Buttons.

CD player and everything works fine but there is no display .....

Well, my display went out earlier this week. Took it apart and found out that the LCD on the 501dpx was burnt out. I also found out all we have to do is replace the whole faceplate instead of the system
