    Service Manuals

    Oziyak,

    www.servicemanuals.net sells a sevice manual for your receiver. Maybe it has something on the J-Link interface as well. Please share anything you find out. I am thinking of getting a JVC, but only if the J-Link protocol can be figured out.

    I'm guessing I'll have to set a pin high on the j-link adapter to trick it into believe it's a cd changer. Does anyone know the pinouts of the j-link adapter?

    thanks

    I have tried switching to the AUX/Line Input instead of 'CD-Changer' by holding the function button in. The only options I have are CLOCK, BEEP and AREA.
    Then I have tried about every other button combination with no luck. I just can not find out how to change this to line in. The radio is a JVC KD-SX830. I have found the service manual but no operation manual yet.
    Can someone please assist this tight wod? I don't wait to buy another radio.........
    I have connected my mp3 player to the input lines 6,7 and 8 as shown below. Now I am thinking that there just might be other connections in the plug that tells the radio that something is connected.?.? like tie pin 1 high?


    most of my information gathered from:
    J-Link pinout
    jvc jlink plug

    Thanx!

    Hold the Select button down to get into setup mode (Like where you set the time). Scroll it to an option called Ext Input. Make that option 'Line Input' instead of 'Changer'

    No, I have not purchased the j-link adapter. I soldered my input connector right to the back of the radio on pins 6,7 and 8.
    Are you saying that I need to have the j-link adapter plugged in before I can get to the cd-changer options menu? Because there is no menu option for the cd-changer input method. My KD-SX830 radio might be too old to have this option. The service manual is copyrighted in 1998.
    I just purchased this adapter from e-bay. I will report back in a week.
    Thank You

    Well, The item arrived today..............and nope, it didn't work. I just guess my JVC radio is too darn old to support ext input. Now I am in the market for another radio.
    Thanks for the replies.

    Just one more idea, what about picking up a used changer, they have to be cheap used, , skipping, etc - no one wants them now with Ipods at such. Maybe there is a board or soemthing that you could extract from it and solder your inputs on to the audio portion of it.

    That was a thought for a while. But then I'd be better off using that money for another radio.

    Just a side note here: this radio is going to be used in a golf cart so I didn't want to stick too much money into something that could get stolen by some dumba$$.
