Question about Car Audio & Video

The USB function on my JVC KD-AR880 won't engage. It "File Search" forever. I'm using an 8gig USB Flash Drive (Corsair), and it has approx. 2.3gigs of music on it. All file types are suported (MP3,WMA) and Folders are no more than one deep from root. Any ideas?

How long have you left it in the head unit while it says "File Check"? With 2.3GB, it may take a while to finish it's check.

Have you tried doing a disc scan of the flash drive with your computer? If there are file system issues on the drive, that could make the head unit unhappy.

According to the manual, file names can have up to 25 characters, but ID tags can be up to 128. It doesn't say what happens if you go beyond those limits. Check your folder/file name lengths.

If you're using a USB extension cord, try it without.

Hi, My car audio JVC KD-R416 diplays "Protected" and no function is working how to bring it to normal. Regards, Ajitabh Biswas


There may be a short somewhere in the wireing in which will cause that to happen. Try removing the radio itsself and unplug all the wires then let it sit for a minute to reset then plug it back in then try again.

How do I remove my JVC KD-AR880?


if you still have all the hardware that came with it your should have 2 L shapped peices of metal, all you have to do is pop off the plastic ring around the deck and you should be able to see slots on either side of the deck, all you have to do is slide the metal dealys in the slots and then you should be able to slide the deck right out.

Manual for jvc kd-lh811 car stereo


You can check here for all of JVC owners and installation manuals, but your model number did not come up when I did the search for it. You may want to try using the KD-LH810 manuals, it may be the same as yours.

Have just installed (per instructions) a jvc car cd KD-G386/KD-G385 receiver in my caravan, nothing seems to operate, have reset it. and press "display"button-clock comes on for couple of seconds...


Hi colinelva.
I can probably help you but I need more info.
Lets start with the vehicle, What year ,? What specific model?, What type of head unit came out? Was it factory?
Did you use a wiring adapter, or just cut the plug off and hardwire it?. If so give me the color code of all the wires that you used in the dash. are their any left over but not hooked up? How many speakers? All Factory?

I don't need any info about the JVC Head unit.
Lets start with that, and we will take it from there.
Regards, Paul
