I've had my JVC KT-SR2000 for a little over a year and the red backlight for the LCD screen just stopped illuminating. The LCD still works but you can't see it unless you are an inch away from the screen. I have both the car kit as well as the home dock so I really don't want to change units. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Re: LCD screen back light doesn't work
Sirius Radios got VERY HOT and it would destroy the LED lighting in the units. XM seemed to get it under control by using a 5volt or 6volt power supply, but the 12 volt Sirius radios were almost fire hazards to the point that I had to run a small computer fan on mine to keep the display working; until I junked the radio.
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 Sadly JVC no longer represents quality.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.

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.
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
