Fm Radio signal?

Hello, I have a JVC Ultra Componet compnet system FS-500 for 10 or 11 years, I never put the radio antenna that come with it, I only used the CD, but Today I try to put the antenna, but I don't get any signal, my question is I saw something in the back that say Antenna FM coaxaial 75Q, what is that?...Do I have to have another cord with it? I only that the antenna?.
Do you have any picture that I can see to install the antenna in FM, I only hear AM but no FM.
Thank you for your help.

There was a black wire included (with a metal "cap" to insert in the FM center connector) that served as the FM antenna, but in a pinch any wire can do, preferably about 33" long and with the insulation stripped from the last inch or so (or get creative and sand the last inch of varnish off a properly sized untwisted clothes hanger and gently bend to suit). Bare stranded wire should be twisted or folded until it's thick enough to firmly fit the middle "hole" of the FM antenna connector. Be careful that no strands of wire short to the metal ground "ring" surrounding the hole or the antenna won't work (although it won't burn out your amp like shorting the speaker wires would, it just won't work). Orient the wire horizontally or vertically for best reception. This unit also doesn't pick up FM very well if you're in a steel-framed building or away from windows in the general direction of the local transmitters, so moving the unit closer to a window may help dramatically. In bad reception areas you can get an external FM "rabbit ears" type antenna but you'll need the "European" style of 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer to plug it into the unit's FM connector (one that has a bigger central connector "plug" than the usual US units). Some cable systems also still support FM, if yours does, a VHF/UHF/FM signal splitter and either the above mentioned transformer attached to flat 300 ohm cable or a plain  "European" style connector attached to the end of the 75 ohm round black cable will do the trick. Some Radio Shacks have them. Good luck!

Radio can only lock on one station


There are no known issues with the antenna connectors or cable.
Visually inspect the cable and ends to be sure nothing came loose.

Has there been anything added to the electronic system...i.e. HID headlights, amps, ect.

When i put the fm radio it display auto muting and doesnt have sound, this only happens with the radio because the dvd sounds ok


"Auto Muting" in the context of FM means the output will be muted if the signal is so weak it would result in mostly noise anyway. Interstation radio noise can be annoying and dangerous at high volumes.

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    How do I preset individual radio station frequencies?


    To set individual presets: 1. tune to the station you want as a preset 2. hold down the number (ie "1") on the remote until the number blinks on the system 3. repeat for all other stations
    press the number on the remote to tune to your preset
    this is very similar to setting the presets on my car radio

    Can't Get A Radio Signal When I Connect A Cox Cable


    Hi...
    Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
    One of those is your problem.
    You'll need to buy a FM antenna

    You may have Power antenna and amp remote turn on wires switched. Your system may be looking for turn on signal from radio and only gets it when am or fm is on because power antenna wire is hooked up instead of amp turn on signal.
