Question about JVC KD-G420 CD Player
About a month ago this started-when I adjust the volume, the ATT (mute) kicks in. I just thought I was accidentally pressing the button as I was turning it, but the problem has increased. Now I am unable to touch the volume knob without activating the ATT or having the unit turn off. It also happens without me touching the unit at all. I have only had it for about a year, but I have no warranty and was told by Best Buy that I would need to get a whole new stereo. I took it apart and cleaned the circuits with alcohol and attempted boosting up the connect points so they would have greater contact. Any other suggestions would be helpful. I have no stereo experience but feel confident tinkering.

Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.
Tell me what you think, tooldoc

You need to have the yellow wire from the stereo connected to constant battery/12 volts. That wire supplies power for the memory, if it is connected to ignition power, when you turn off the car, the power for the memory is off also.
