I got this thing a couple of days ago to replace an older model with pretty much the same features auto set, dual alarms, that had started to randomly reset the time zones - not good for making it to work... I noticed that it had been updated and the control redesigned, so there were some more bells and whistles. Big mistake - HUGE! The instructions were too small to read, so found the manual on-line, enlarged it to 200%, which I could then see, but it wasn't written in any kind of logical order. Altogether completely and unnecessarily counter-intuitive and complicated. Took me HOURS to set up, and I'm no dummy. I have to go back to the instructions just to change the alarm or even change a radio station. Back it goes. So now I'm trying to find a suitable replacement - auto set and dual alarms are required, and it would be nice to have digital tuning instead of a dial. Don't want or need projection, a weather report, presets, a usb port, or an iPod charging station. There are some units out there that seemed ok, and were well-reviewed, but all the negative comments were about the directions, difficulty of set-up, multiple-function, unmarked buttons that needed to be pushed in particular combinations to get anything to work, and the complexity of changing settings.
Sorry for the long rant, but I've been searching all day, and the 5 - 10 top-rated models all have this same issue! Any suggestions or solutions out there that don't cost $300+, or are only to be found used on ebay? Many thanks for your help!
First, make sure the time is set correctly – Eastern Standard Time (EST) is the default
Press the Alarm Mode button – it has options for Weekend, meaning Sat and Sun only; Weekdays (Mon-Fri), and Everyday
While holding either the ALM 1 or ALM 2 button, press up or down to set the correct wake-up time
Release ALM 1 (or 2) when you are finished

This Clock/Radio/CD player has had component failure problems. The unit is probably not worth repairing. The reason is the parts and repair information is probably very limited. The cost of the repair with parts and labor will be expensive. This repair would probably cost you more than just buying a new Clock/Radio/CD player. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

If you say what radio it is we might help? There is usually a lead from the radio on the old setups that powers the auto aerial. I say the old setups because its all multipin sockets now with jumper leads that allow connection to various makes and models. In the good old days you had a fused input, usually red, a couple of speaker wires a black for ground and a trailing lead with a female connector that didn't seem to do anything. That was normally the powered aerial supply lead.
That engine would require a complete teardown and rebuild. Pretty expensive when you consider all the new parts required, like for one, possibly a new crankshaft.. After removal, a rebuilder could tell if a new one is required. Yes, pretty expensive...do you want to spend that much on a '91 model car?
If it were me, a replacement would be a better option. Good luck.
it sounds like a bad earth conection, check the battery leads and ensure the black earth wire has a good tight conatct to the battery and also a good tight connection to the car body, if the wire is loose then when driving will touch on and off hence the fault.
The earth lead also go's to your starter motor and another to the cars gearbox ensure all have a good metal conatct and are tight, not rusty etc also this can be a difficult fault to find at times the wires can corode where you cant see so be thorough when checking the wires.
Hope this helps, its the most common thing on fords bad earth connections. may take you some time to locate but im pretty sure thats the cause.
If you need any more help please email me and I will get back to you.
I don't know this model in particular but JVC is supposed to be a good name.
As for being a cassette player, I hope you either have a bunch of cassettes stored away somewhere or at least another cassette deck to record your favorite music onto blank tapes because cassettes are pretty much obsolete so you pretty much can expect nothing new to be released on them and only find them in pawn shops, flea markets or garage sales, etc...
Some features I would look for in a cassette deck are things like Automatic Music Search, Music Scan (uses AMS and plays a couple seconds of each track), Dolby NR, Dolby B and Dolby C, Auto Reverse with Ferret Head(head actually flips over instead of a 4 channel head).
Emissionwiz is correct, but, his information is for older Model Camrys.
The 2003 "factory-installed" radios in the Camry product line does not have an anti-theft feature, and, because of having no anti-theft feature, there is no reactivation code. If you have a dead battery, the only thing you will lose regarding the radio functions would be the radio stations that you programmed into the memory. The radio will function properly after a dead battery is replaced with no issues.
Hi there. I have the same unit. A darn nice piece of hardware. A couple of months back I noticed my cooling fan making noise. A few days ago I got the "PROTECT" message and the unit wouldn't power up. I turned it off for three days and it started playing again. Now I'm pretty sure it went into protect mode because it overheated. I just tried finding a Teac replacement fan and didn't see one on the web. My solution will be to adapt a small computer-type fan onto it to keep things cool. It works too well to let it die! Good Luck, Gborchers. GROGSTER
