I had my stereo installed almost 3 years ago by the Best Buy Stereo installation Techs at the Parkway Plaza, El Cajon, CA location.
For awhile now the stereo acts like its shorting out. If I raise the the volume up loud it blips out on me. I can't set the time or change it.
It also does not like CD'S the stereo/CD acts like it skips.
Also, this is kind weird, but when I turn off my headlights or step on the brake pedal, it causes the stereo to blip out.
Hoang00, to change the time on JVC's i believe you hold down "source" for a while and a menu pops up. SSwaim, sounds like a grounding problem. Check the connections behind the dash, possibly a couple came loose. I would say possibly a bad car battery but the headlights thing points to a grounding issue to me.

I had the same problem with the 2200ub, so I will post the solution for that. Hopefully its the same for you, if not sorry I couldn't help better.
I have a 2002 Suburban and was installing the Pioneer DEH-2200UB.
The suburban had the factory stereo still and has onStar.
So I had everything hooked up, purchased the harness which was perfect except for the blue and white wire on the stereo and a solid blue wire on the factory stereo end. I was confused by there being 2 plugs from the factory stereo and one for the 2200.
I finally went to Best Buy and talked to their tech and he told me that since I have onStar I need to cut the pink wire and wire it to the blue and white wire that goes into the new stereo. These guys were great they didn't hesitate to tell me how to do it and even gave me the extra wire and connectors I would need to do it. Best Buy is expensive but I will keep shopping there just because of their service from these kinds of people.
The pink wire is hooked into the amp which I believe is located under the drivers seat. As soon as I did this everything worked perfectly.
I am not sure if the onStar still works, but I don't plan on using it anyway so if that is important to you, you should probably have a pro do the install. Best Buy will install it for $50 (plus parts) but it could be more for dealing with things like this I really have no idea.
Hope this works for you.
The best way to install a stereo deck is go get yourself a Scoshe wiring harness. This will allow you to wire the harness directly to the stereo, then plug directly in to the OEM wiring clip that is plugged into the factory stereo. It helps if and when you sell the truck and want to put the factory stereo back in. Plus you dont have to hack up wires. Hope it helps. You can get the wiring harness from any car stereo installation or customization shop.
It would be best just to buy a new wire harness for the stereo & the aftermarket harness for the vehicle. If you give me the year, make & model of the vehicle & the model # of the cd player I can get you a price on the two pieces you need.
get wire harness- get indash kit - get antenna adapter(if needed).
then do it yourself. note. that is why installers exist. so that you wont have to be asking all these stupid questions.

Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.
This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
