Question about JVC KT-SR2000 SIRIUS Radio Receiver with Car Kit

3 Answers

Antenna not detected / Searching for signal

I currently flop my JVC KT-SR2000 between two vehicles. I recently began seeing this on the display when i run it in only one of the two vehicklies. I am thinking that it is the mount or adapter. I have a relatively new antenna and the unit is getting power and overriding the set FM station. I am kind of in a bind, sirius does not offer this unit any longer, and I have been unable to find replacement parts for the car kit. Aside from antenna that is, but its universal.

    I have same problem, problem has gotten worse over time. I switch radio multiple times per day from boom box to car cradle to home cradle. Problem is the worst in the boom box. I believe problem is poor connection on the round antenna connector, it's as if one of the parts is not quite long enough. I've tried opening the radio to see if the plate with the contacts could be adjusted, but I couldn't even get the radio open, and I was afraid of breaking it.

    I have the same problem. I found out it is the connection to the antenna that needs to be repaired and it looks like it can't be fixed.

    Even though I am using a Stiletto 100, I have the same problem, but only on the home base, not in the car. I replaced the home base, and it worked for a while, but now here it is again! I am convinced that it's a weak connection in the multi-connector on the home base. I'm going to try spraying it with an electronic cleaning spray.

    my sr 2000 started displaying the "acquiring signal" message about a week ago. At first it just happened upon turning on the unit, and would go away within minutes, Eventually this time got longer & longer, and finally the display just stayed on - radio signal was never, and still is not acquired.

    I am on my FOURTH radio receiver in the past five years...and this one is also becoming useless as it is frequently displaying "Antenna Not Detected". Once this one goes (should be soon), I will be canceling my subscription (although I really love it).

I just had the same thing happen the radio is 4 yrs old and has never been removed from the car. I called sirus and they sent me a test signal that seemed to work on and off for a few days. I finally when to crappy tire and got a new one. Considering the programming is 200 dollars the 39.99 antenna was worth it

I had the same problem with antennas lasting only about a year mounted on the roof. You can get a better price on e-bay but won't solve the problem. I ended up using my boom box antenna on the dash. It works quite well but signal is intermittent on tree covered roadways. Other than that, it works great.

I have the same problem. It's happened twice now. Each antenna has lasted about 1 year. The connection is good, the antennas just stop working. It's almost like there's some built in life span. Who knows. It's ridiculous either way.

Antenna Not Detected. Now I have to buy a new one AGAIN $39.00 and re-wire thole whole thing in my car. PITA

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.

Aquiring Signal displays for 5-10 minutes before hearing audio

It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

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.

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.

Denon AVR-X2400H Intermittent Protection Mode on startup Apologies for the incoming wall of text. Whenever my Denon AVR-X2400H receiver has been off for several hours most regularly in the morning, it will often go into protection mode on start. This has been happening for months. After anywhere from a minute to 20 minutes, after many restarts/moving the unit around/swearing, it will start normally and function without issue for hours until the next long period of being off. It is the dreaded PRT: DC. During this period of protection mode, it will fail to start even if I disconnect everything but power. I have swapped the power cables, tried different outlets, and let it get plenty of airflow though if it were temp related it would be a different code / not happen on first startup. I even opened up the unit, disassembled it and looked for moisture/scorch marks/loose cables before re-assembling. I have performed a couple factory resets over the last couple months. I assume the intermittent startup nature hints at a failing but not failed part, but am not sure what to replace. I have access to an engineer friend / multimeter if helpful. It is well out of warranty, but there's a part of me that wants to believe it can be salvaged, especially given current AVR prices. Other things I have tried include leaving it in ECO/network standby. There was a period where spinning the source wheel on startup would cause the AVR to lock up but not trigger protection, after which unplugging/replugging would allow it to start normally. Not exactly scientific.
