    if u dont receive a particular station then it must be the fault with either some particular capacitors.

    else your variable capacitor which decides the ranges must have gone faulty.

    you can check inside

    it wont take much cost sir/madam.

    just a small component.

    if ur unit is more than 20years old u can leave it without fixing and go for a new.

    if this is less then 3 or 4 years ur best option is to fix it and get back on track.

    if between 10 and 20 u need to decide what to do.

    but what i say is
    the cost of repair is less. so its easy to fix.

    but my personal advice is

    thank you

The backlight has gone bad. I have seen this exact problem in SEVERAL other Jensen units.. The backlight might last 5 years, or in extreme cases, maybe 15 minutes.. I have also seen them bad out of the box.

Jensen CD3010X Radio Problems

This happened to me too--with the same unit. I finally took it apart and found that the volume up button was shot. The tiny piece of metal that makes electronic contact had actually snapped in the middle causing contact to be made at random by bumps rattles or just about anything. Since the unit automatically comes on when the volume button is pressed, even turning it off was ineffective. So...I unsoldered one of the buttons that I never used much and soldered it where the broken volume button had been. I'm no expert, so I was rather surprised when the unit worked after i reattached it in my dash. Anyways, it was a cheap fix for a cheap--and poorly made deck. good luck
