Question about JBL MR-17 Sirius-Ready AM/FM/CD Receiver Controller

1 Answer

JBL MR-17.2 not recognizing Sirius satellite receiver.

Just got my JBL MR-17 replaced re:warranty with a MR-17.2. The old one would skip into CD mode on its own and would not eject a CD. Now the new one doesnt recognize the Sirius receiver. After pressing the mode button, the sreen says "SIRIUS1" for about 2 seconds then displays "AUX". Dealer told me the Sirius receiver is not working now. It was working fine before I got the radio replaced. What can I do to check or fix the satellite receiver issue?

I have the exact same issue. I have swapped with two identical MR17.2 radios and swapped out the sirius receiver. No change. I even bought a remote thinking I had to have a remote installed to get it to work...still no diff. Have you ever found a solution?

I have a jbl mr17 radio and i want the clock to stay on


Clocks are usually wired into same circuit as your dome/interior lights, so they have constant power, regardless whether key is on or off.Should be able to find a wire to splice into around your fuse box.

I have a JBL MR-17.2 Sirius Ready stereo


To get your Sirius ID number from you MR-17 JBL stereo, select the Mode button until it displays "Sirius". Then push and hold the Mode button for a couple seconds and it will chirp and display 3 blank spaces. Enter three zeros, "000" in these 3 spaces. The Zero is the loud button labeled "LD". When you do that, it will display your Sirius ID number. :)

JBL MR-4 CD doesn't eject


The unit probably doesn't think there is a CD inside. Possible doing a soft reset will fix this. Do so by powering the unit and putting a ball point or other pointed object into the reset button opening either on the face of the radio or behind the face. A hard reset can be done by disconnecting constant power from the unit for approximately 15 seconds.
If either of these methods fail, then your unit has a bad CD mechanism or more than 1 CD inside the player. In that case, the unit will have to be serviced by an electronics repair or a local stereo shop. This is a Marine radio, and if installed on a boat, this problem is not too uncommon. Moist air can cause damage to the unit as well as the bouncing on the water that boats do.

CD changer problem


had to replace player twice, luckily it was under warranty. FACTORY PLAYER JAMS EASILY !!! What I have learned is to put cd player in radio mode before ejecting instead skipping form disc to disc.

Jbl marine mr-17 all funtions are frozen


Hi,

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? The reset button is at the panel at the back of the faceplate, bottom left side. Of course doing so will also erase all presets and user settings & configurations.

Additionally, pls verify that the multiple contacts pins are clean, free of corrosion and makes a positive contact with its mate at the rear of the faceplate. If the unit is used in a salty environment, it may be necessary to manually scrape of whatever blue green build up develops between the connector pins and the plastic insulator. You can try using an old toothbrush and WD40.

Further to check are:
1. the red, yellow and black wire are tightly connected where they are supposed to be connected. If the unit is used onboard, it might be to your advantage to likewise check the grounding system;
2. one of the rear connector is for a remote, pls likewise check that none of the pins are shorting and no presence of any corrosion.

If problem persists, it may be necessary to seek the services of a qualified professional as this involves opening the unit up and tracing the circuitry of the logic/controller circuit.

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.
