I just bought a 3.5mm male-to-male audio cable to hook up my iPod to my JVC RV-DP100 boombox. Once I plugged it in, there was no sound whatsoever. Then, I tried turning up the volume to max on both the boombox and my ipod and I heard the faintest static and music being played. I was very frustrated when I found this out because I have been wanting to play good tunes from my iPod on my boombox for very long. So if anyone has any suggestions about the 'aux in' port-- please don't hesitate to help.
Make absolutely sure you have AUX selected for the sound source & the cable is plugged properly into the aux in 3.5mmm socket & not the headphone socket, as they look the same on the back of this boombox. The volume on the iPod will need to be set quite high (around 75%), but switch the iPod's EQ off to keep the sound clean.
Faulty 3.5mm male to male cable maybe? I had the same problem with a cable I made myself, the wire was too thin and was just twisted together. I made it from 2 extension jacks I bought from a dollar store. I re-made it properly with 3.5mm jacks bought from an electronics store with thicker wires that I soldered on. It worked fine after that.

You need a new bulb installed - difficulty is semi hard , in that you must take apart the boombox , remove the shroud around the bulb , unsolder , resolder new one ..take the old one to an electronics shop to match.
There are six common cords that fit most devices, Radio Shack, Electronic Service Shops, Electronic Specialty Stores, and second hand shops are more likely have what you need, as a last resort go online to JVC and link to customer support.
It is not much difficult.Look for AC supply cord. Test it on Ohm meter and then look for AC voltage.Look for continuty of mains transformer,look for DC voltage, 12 volts and 5 volts if both the voltages are present then set should work.
tune into the station you want as normal. Then on the remote, press & hold the number key for the preset number you want. This will flash in the display to show you it's set. You can preset 30 FM & 15 AM stations.
