A-It's hooked up wrong.
B-It's worn out
C-It's time to enter into 21rst century technology.
D-Gimmie 5 bucks.
E-Look at a new
Clarion
Kenwood
Pioneer
Panasonic
Eclipse
These are all good reliable performers that can be found for excellent prices.
(Alpine and JVC got booted off the list this year cause they pissed me off)

give it a shot. just because it's not well known doesn't mean it won't suit you well.

Take your HU and throw it at somebody you dislike then install a new one!

The reason it wont hold its memory is that it isnt hooked up correct. The yellow wire is the power and the red is the battery/ memory. You have to have each connected to its corresponding wire to get the memory to work.

As far as it not playing CDs, I honestly have no clue. I have owned 2 of those JVCs. Send it in for repairs or take it to CC or BB and get them to look at it. I would advise you to get a new HU. The motors on those have problems.
My first one quit working and the secone one the display part of the face quit working and eventually fell off.

You have that backwards, yellow is CONSTANT power for memory and red is SWITCHED power.

in other words run a wire from the yellow to another constant source, you may have to go to the fuse box, wherever you get power make sure there is a fuse on it somewhere close to the power source.

its not worth repairing the cd problem.
