    What model number is this radio, what have you checked so far.

    Can you verify that the red ignition wire has power when the key is on and does the yellow back up wire also have power even with the key off? The black wire must also be grounded very good, double check all of those first. Use a multimeter to check voltages, a test light does not tell you just how much voltage is there, sometimes they light up even if there is not enough power for the radio to work.

    If you plan on working on this, do you have a multimeter and soldering iron and some solder and solder wick to remove solder with?

    Did you just buy this new? or did you get it used? Are you sure it was working before you put it in the car?

    Let me know about these questions and I will give you a few things to look for to determain if it can be fixed very easy or not. I have been repairing car audio systems for nearly 18 years and have seen just about everything in my time.

I am trying to connect my JVC KD-G340 car CD player to a headboard in my bedroom. I am using a radio shack A/C to DC power converter as a power supply. When I connect the Black Wire (instructions say to...


your ac-dc converter is not properly shielded or grounded, you need to replace it with a good one.(or you may wire you cd player chassis to a grounding receptacle, most ac outlets the center plugs are the ground terminals)

some car cd-player has a memory circuit, that will remembers on what state it was before power was remove, like yours it will play again as soon power is applied to it..

Security feature problem on car cd deck


i have never seen a jvc that required a security code. it is possible that you may have a bad power or ground connection if lights are blinking off and on. sometimes when a deck has been sitting for a long time capacitors may dry out.

Have a in dash jvc kd-sx750 cds player that won't power on


if you had the speakers hooked up wrong it would just make a crackling sound when it rubs on a surface. if your vehicle has a factory built in amplifier somewhere you may have to hook up the remote turn on wire to the wiring harness to tell it to turn on.
also make sure your illumination and dimmer wire are hooked up correctly if it doesnt display any images on the screen. and if for some reason you think its shutting off because of crossed wires maybe check the ground the batt and the ignition wire ,or the red black and yellow wires. usually when something major like those three wires get crossed it blows fuses in the car taillamp fuse stereo batt fuse ect. check all those .try resetting the deck of the car battery thats all i can think of now.

Power flashing in and out


Take your ground connection directly to metal, this is to insure you have a good ground. Stereo going in and out could be because of a shorted or miswired speaker. Disconnect all speakers and test the stereo. If the stereo continues to blink, you have a stereo problem.

Cd stero wiring help


Hi,

To my knowledge, the illumination wire need not be connected to the JVC KD-G230. Further, other than the 8 speaker wires, the JVC has only:
  • black - body ground;
  • yellow - always on B+12
  • red - ACC/IGN B+12
  • blue w/ white stripe - external amp trigger and/or power antenna
Perhaps this might be of further help to you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No power


get a test light. check for good power on both the red and yellow wires with the key on. only one wire should have power with the key off... If one power is missing the deck will not work. Also make sure the deck has a good ground connection on the black wire.... if the unit has good power and ground and does not work the unit is probhably junk... i am willing to bet you are probhably missing a power though.

Installing Sony Explod CDX-GT210 CD deck


try connecting the red and yellow together, and to a 12 volt source. that should deffinately get power to the head unit.

check the fuse under the big connector on the back.
