    The light on the face of my KTSR-3000 SIRIUS Radio that displays the station does not work. It worked up untill around 1-1/2 years. I hope there is a quick and cheap tip to repair this problem.

    screen went out a few months ago. has been intermittant since then. mostly off, but sometimes it comes on. unit works great otherwise. dont want to get rid of it. anyone know how many volts are supposed to be at the backlight terminals shown in electron's picture? Where can we get a new screen/backlight?

    Im thinking about rigging up some LEDS to replace the backlight.

Had this problem with mine. turned out to be bad solder joints. Take the unit apart and solder these joints and it should fix the display problem.KT-SR3000 - e0ae4d7.jpg

I solved the problem by buying another unit off craigslist and swapping the lcd displays. took ten minutes.

the sr2000 and sr3000 use the same lcd display. buy either one. desolder the two leads for the backlight and gently pop off the ribbon connector behind the lcd. reverse to reinstall the lcd display

I have an sr3000. i bought a used sr2000. actually, i got the boombox and a sr2000 for $50. i was willing to pay jvc $20-$30 for a new lcd so it seemed like a decent deal. $20 for a donor sr2000 and $30 for the boombox?

when i took apart the original broken lcd, i was unable to get the led backlight to work correctly. when applying voltage (from 3 to 5 volts) the leds would be very inconsistent. 1 on, 3 on, full brightness, minimal brightness. I wanted to make up a new backlight myself but couldnt figure out if there was some secret circuitry in each led. there are 10 leds on a thin strip of circuit board, each embedded in epoxy. it looks like the leds are all wired in parallel.

also, note that theres this large silver part in the sr2000 and sr3000. it is the serialized part. so if you just want another receiver and dont want to officially activate, you can swap this part into your new sr2000 or sr3000. when i first bought the donor sr2000, i popped in the silver part to see what would happen. what happened was that i had a fully working sr2000. But... i wanted my sr3000.

My sirius kt-sr3000 also works fine in car dock, but when inserted into it's plug+play boom box,boom it displays "antenna not detected"

Try swapping the boombox antenna with the car dock to see if you get the same problem. If yo do, you know the boombox is bad. Otherwise, its the antenna and you just need to get a replacement.

Disassembly of JVC KT-SR3000

Did you get it open? remove the two screws. Those are all the screws on the outside. Gently pry the halves apart at the bottom of the unit. Gently try a flat screwdriver. GENTLY! Theres some tabs that hold the rest together. You may break one or two but will be ok in the end. Do the prying at the bottom so you dont break the tabs at the top.

JVC KD-G200 cd player

I would suggest checking the accessory (red wire), the yellow is a constant feed from the battery, which will allow the clock to be displayed no matter what. The accessory wire is what is used to turn on the cd player. You may need to restrip the red wire and check the lead going to the red wire with a test light to make sure it is getting a voltage light.

LCD screen back light doesn't work

Ditto - JVC KT-SR2000 backlight doesn't work (watched die yesterday), after 2 years, 10 months. Sadly JVC no longer represents quality.  
Note: Original JVC KT-SR2000 was a fire hazard - defective from start - overheated hardly describes it. BestBuy replaced first month.
