Question about JVC Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a JVC El Kameleon cd player/radio combo in my car. I know nothing about this as the previous owner (who I cannot contact) is the one who installed it. My main problem is that I cannot access the "tune" function. I can't even find the tune function, and it always ends up seeking for about 5 minutes before it finds a local station which I hate. I do not know of the specs or model number as I have no visible reading of that on the device whatsoever. Any assistance that can at all be given would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you for the support, yes it is missing an antenna, the previous owner had an *episode* when he lost the car and smashed the windshield, stole the antenna, and broke off pieces off the door. Right now it has a makeshift metal wire antenna which I imagine is part of the problem source. However I am looking most into the fact that I cannot find the tune option (i.e. changing the station by .2 mHZ up or down). This should be available regardless of how the antenna is set up. I'll get it eventually, and thank you so much for the help you have offered. It was quite fast support; and I will be sure to come here again if I have another unsolvable problem.

    (As a side note, I am aware of people that say "Ever heard of [search engine]? Rest assured I did search for over 5 hours before coming across fixya, I imagine I can find this particular El Kameleon/JVC's manual online somewhere.)

The only thing i can suggest is to go to your audio shop and ask the same question to them, as they normally carry many different styles of leads and may have one there that will help you to connect your cd player, Is there a din output on the back of this unit? if so they should be able to help.

Jvc kd lx111 deck wont eject cd

I just had this problem today and when I attempted to eject the CD it would give me an error message that stated (ERR 32). Apparently this means that there is something blocking the movement of the screen, a little manipulation should help the issue. Another variable could be the Eject lock feature, essentially a "child lock" for your disc. When this lock is activated it prevents the CD in the deck to be ejected. You can change this by holding down the blue source button and the eject button simultaneously for about 2 or 3 seconds. A message should appear saying "No Eject" and one that repeatedly flashes "Eject on" These two things seemed to help me alot when I had this issue. If those things don't work I would recommend calling JVC, much to my suprise they were actually really helpful. Their number is 1-800-252-5722.

Car radio Code

the code for this radio was not set by the factory, but by the original owner and the code could be anything-unfortunately unless you contact the original owner and they know the code you are out of luck

JVC car radio/cd player wont switch on

As a sanity check run a temporary wire directly from the battery positive to the radio. Twist the red and yellow wires together and connect it to the wire from the battery. If this works either your red or yellow wire connection under the dash or to the harness is not hot like you think. Yellow usually goes to a constant 12 volt source (to keep radio memory) and the red wire to 12volts when the ignition is on. In some radios this is reversed. The test I mentioned will determin if the problem is in the wiring or the radio.
