Re: JVC head unit problem
Do you have a "RESET" button on your stereo? Check your owner's manual to find it. I have a JVC unit in my car and the reset button is a small hole behind the detachable face. Take the end of a pencil or a pen and insert it in the tiny hole and hold for a few seconds. This should reset the stereo so you can get the CD out. Hope this helps...

The only thing i can suggest is to go to your audio shop and ask the same question to them, as they normally carry many different styles of leads and may have one there that will help you to connect your cd player, Is there a din output on the back of this unit? if so they should be able to help.
Have you tried pressing the "RESET" button on the stereo? I have a JVC unit in my car and the reset button is a tiny hole behind the detachable face. Take a pencil or a pen and insert the end into the tiny hole an hold for a few seconds. This will reset the stereo and you should be able to eject the CD as you normally would. If it's a mini-disc (8mm) you probably would have to take the unit apart and manually retrieve it - big hassle. Check the owner's manual to find out where the "RESET" button is if it is not behind the face. If you don't have the owner's manual, you can download one from jvc.com.. Hope this helps.
The head unit should have two separate +12V connections: One that goes to a switched 12V power that is switched on/off via the ignition and one that is always energized at +12V. If the head unit's switched +12V lead is not connected, the unit will not turn on (except for when +12V is first applied to the "always on" lead, in which case it will immediately eject the CD). Please respond if this is not the issue. Hope this helps!
i have the same problem in a 2001 mercury cougar. i got power all the way to the back of the radio from the ignition (red) and constant (yellow) wires and the ground wire is good. Think the head unit might be screwed the fuses are all fine. not sure though
