Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Does Audiovox still service the AV-120. It's no longer listed on the website. Maybe pushing 20 years old. Some buttons don't work, Can't reset clock, dial light is flashing bright and dim, very distracting at night. Can it be fixed?

I doubt that Audiovox would service it, since parts will no longer be available (only some). The buttons might be oxidized or dirty or cracked and slightly broken, it's hard to say. Most of the time the buttons are oxidized and need to be cleaned that set the clock, and the dial light socket might need to be cleaned. You can try to spray the switches and sockets with electrical contact cleaner, but sometimes they are too oxidized and require some fine grit emory cloth. Capacitors in the power supply (the electrolytic ones) can dry out and have to be replaced, but it's amazing how they can rejuvenate a unit.
See what you can do, you might fix it. Otherwise, a TV repair shop might be able to help you.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Tone button no longer works.


How old is the receiver?
Does it crackle only when pushing the button or afterward in either position?
If it's getting old (10+ years) I'd suspect dirty contacts in the switch. If it's not completely sealed you can spray some contact cleaner in it and operated it repeatedly till it stops crackling. I found that what works best on switches and potentiometers is "Lube-A-Trol" heavy duty lubricant from Tech Spray. Even if the contacts aren't the problem that stuff will keep them that way longer. If the switch is completely sealed and there are no bad solder joints (sometimes the only way to be sure is to resolder them even if they look good), then I'd replace the switch.

My Grasslin Digi 20E-120 timer will not set time or timer. The 1-7 numbers blink. What does this mean?


Digi 20E-120 is 16Amp 120Volt flush mount digital timer with 20 or 140 programs per week.
Grasslin Digi (digi tal/ digital) can be reset using reset button.
Reset might restore functionality, but will delete all programming.

Check that circuit is delivering 120Volt and that circuit is clean without interference.

Also check electrical terminals fit tight on the timer.
Use needle nose pliers and pull terminals off and then push back.
The digi series has 5-day program back-up capacitor so programs should remain, but capacitors go bad.
Power surge can blow out timers. Use surge protection on all circuits.

There are a many Digi timers from years of manufacture by GE and now Intermatic, since Intermatic bought Grasslin from GE.
The digi can be replaced with simple-to--program FM1D digital timer.

Replacement crossover is FM1D20E-120
Open following link for FM1D manual and Digi manual

What is the all codes


Depends on the model of Jensen Remote.

Jensen was a division of Recoton, and Audiovox bough them out some years ago. The current Audiovox website does not keep infornation on older remote models.

http://replay.web.archive.org/20010401224505/http://jensenremotes.com/ is a snapshot of the website from 2001. Is your model listed there? You can access some of the old codes there, or leave a comment with your exact model number.

Some more modern TVs will use codes that older remotes cannot produce.

Extremely long warm up time 25 minutes. ok once it comes on.


Just a shot in the dark- I think your main projection lamp is going bad- If the set is more than a year or 2 old it can happen. Unfortunately they are a little expensive.
How is the brightness level after it warms up??

Center, surround speakers not working. "Can't Use" message for DSP.


Sounds like the old stuck button thing after a move??? What i mean it go over all the push buttons and maybe you will find one that is not pushing in and returning??? If alls ok then you should check the obvious like bent shafts or balance controls ect. ay have jogged something inside and you will need to see a pro to assit you unless you know how to trouble shoot solid state electronics?? These units have no real serviceable parts inside. Check with your owners manual for the sevicer nearest you. If they are not listed call the service # or try 1-800-289-AIWA . good luck
