Question about JVC KD-S570 CD Player
I have the KD-S570 in my boat. The radio only works sporadically, unless I press on the faceplate. It appears to be firmly locked in place, but apparently the connectors are not making contact. Assuming I have properly connected the faceplate (is there a trick to it?) I would appreciate any suggestions. As it stands the radio is unusable. Thanks. Bob
There are possibly three (3) ways of making sure that there is contact between the faceplate and the unit's frontend:
1. normally, what it would take would be cleaning thoroughly and a light application of WD40 to the mating contacts;
2. slightly bend out the elbow type pins. This should be done carefully so as not to overdo and bend it out of place; or
3. solder a thin layer of soldering lead on top of the flat contact points to increase the contact height. Light/Low heat soldering iron must be use to prevent burning the plastic surroundings.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FIXYA.
