JVC detachable face with auxillary input

System works great except for one thing... the fm radio reception. Some parts of town is barely ok and in others no signal. Installed on a 1998 Honda Accord. All other features work just fine. What's the deal?

How is the reception on AM ?- if the antenna is the problem you won't get any reception on AM !!!! If you can get AM on two or more stations the antenna is not your problem- if you get AM reception and don't get FM the problem is the fm tuner in your Honda radio( usually it would need several solder joints redressed)- we repair these factory radios -Merle840@aol.com.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.


Hello
If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

No AM reception for car radio...do get FM reception.


I was having the same problem with a jvc kd hdr 30. I Installed it myself over a year ago and never wanted to deal with the issue. Finally, I decided to take a look at it today.
On my head unit, all wires were connected except one blue one with a tag that says "do not connect to power, for remote device or power antenna only." This unit is in a '97' MBZ E320 with no visible antenna; I think it is part of the windshield. In any case, between the wiring diagram in the manual and the harness that is part of my car, I was left with 2 blue wires to choose from, one with a white stripe and one with a gray stripe. After testing both for power or ground, I determined neither had power with key on or off. Both had high resistance ground when compared to the chassis ground. In other words, I measured between chassis and these wires. First, I took a wire and connected it to the chassis ground and connected the other end to the blue wire coming from the unit while tuned to a local am station. This simply killed all reception am or fm but did not harm the unit. Next, I connected the blue wire with gray stripe of the car harness to the blue wire of the unit and again this killed all reception. Then I connected the blue wire with white stripe of car harness to the blue wire of unit and presto magic I had great am reception.
I am guessing that this blue wire with white stripe must be part of the antenna itself or perhaps is a connection that increases antenna power. Maybe 'power antenna' on tag refers to an actual powered antenna (like as in amplified?) and not as in an antenna that rises up out of fender, as I believed.
This may not help the first person with the question, but maybe it will help someone out there who searches for these kinds of answers like I do from time to time.

AM radio reception


You are correct William, reception is not what it used to be for many reasons. Some corporate owners and local owners have spent much more maintaining FM facilities, and many have neglected the AM's. A good part of the AM signal is via the ground radials beneath each AM tower. In time these radials deteriorate, and with it the signal. Years ago stations licensed as daytime only shut down at night. Quite a few are now allowed to stay on with greatly reduced power, adding to the noise floor at night. You also have more AM licensees now than in the 60's. Unfortunately many of the really knowledgeable AM RF engineers have retired, or are close to doing so. AM directionals require a very experienced engineer. In addition we have many Part 15 radiators, that are devices that radiate a low level RF signal. Every home is full of them, thus more interference. We have power distribution systems that generate huge amounts of noise across the band too. Then there is the issue of manufacturers who have spent more on the FM receiver side of a radio as more migrated to FM. In the 60's, very few were FM listeners. Gone is sensitivity, selectivity and frequency response in the newer AM radios. There are a few exceptions, the CC Crane, and RCA SuperRadio, both sound good with great performance. By the way, the RCA WAS the GE SuperRadio. I also like to pick up some of the vintage radios on EBay and other sites, plus occasionally at yard sales. Unless you are in the country and don't have a house full of gadgets, DX listening can be difficult, but not impossible. Best of luck, capttomconroy@jetbroadband.com

Black Meatal thing


The thing you are describing is a ferrite rod. It is the aerial that is used for LW and MW reception. The telescopic aerial on top is used for FM.

Providing it is a clean break and you haven't lost any parts of the ferrite rod, just tape it back together. It shouldn't have too great an effect on the reception.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

Better fm reception


Is it just a single wire?

If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.

You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.
