Question about Jensen CD400M CD Player

1 Answer

I think it got wet

Put the stereo in a dash on a boat, tested it out and worked fine. Was fine for a few days then it rained, i guess it isn't a waterproof area that i put the stereo in. I went to try it out today and the numbers on the screen were all screwy looking, couldn't actually read anything on the screen. tried to put in a cd but it wouldn't take it, and it just seemed to be doing random things like trying to eject out of nowhere. When i put the cd in and it came back out (only went in about half way) it came back out with water spots on it. after that i realized it must have gotten wet in there. Is this unit fixable or do i have to get another?

    thanks, i was afraid of that but i might as well give it a shot.

    i can't seem to find this unit anywhere at all, is there another jensen one i can get that i could just slip the unit out and slip this one in without changing the wires or the housing?

Yike! As with most electronics, they are necessarily dead when they get wet, but you do have to be very careful with them until they're dry. Here's the best you can do:

  1. Remove the stereo from the boat completely.
  2. Remove the cover(s) from the stereo to expose as much of the inside to air as possible.
  3. Let it sit for a few days inside to dry.
  4. Reassembly it and install it back in the boat.
If you're lucky, the unit will return to normal operation. Unfortunately, my guess is, since you powered the unit up when it was wet, damage may have already been done.

    You're right, the CD400M looks to be well discontinued. I can't even find an owner's manual online, so your best bet is to compare your owner's manual (you still have it, right?) to this one for the Jensen MSR3007 and see if the wiring and connector seem to match up. Either that, or contact Jensen directly.

i would think it may be a distributor cap or wires as they are the only things that when wet are a problem like you mention or the coil may have carbon tracking try looking at coil and cap at night when dark and see if you see any arcing if you do there is your problem

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

Phone got wet & works fine but says network error


Cell phones do not recover gracefully from getting wet internally. The electronics were not made to get wet.
You would be better served to get a new phone. Getting a cell phone wet is almost alway death to the electronics, even if the phone is dried out completely, The problems caused by the damp electronics will cause strange and intermittent problems.

Mine got wet about a week ago - see my original response.. The screen was just flickering and I could see condensation on the screen. I kept hoping it would dry out, but days went by with no change. Yesterday I finally put it on the dash of my car and let it sit in the sun all day. When I came out of work that evening, the Zen seemed completely dead - and HOT! I let it cool down and plugged it into the charger - still nothing. But this morning -YAY! It is completely functional again!

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.


The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.

Bottom line is that boats are a hrsh environment for electronics. Moisture, salt, and vibration all conspire to undo solder joints and electrical connections. 4 years is a pretty good life span on a boat. A solder connection within the unit could have let go. A good repair shop could probably fis the bad connection but you can probably replace the unit for less.
