      Replacement of JVC KD-R626 HU

      I never thought that i would post a query in ICE section. I am not an audiophile, but need some basic music in my car(s).

      I had JVC KD-R626 installed in my (wife's) Vista since April 2011. I think it had costed me some 8k back then. Since January 2018, the HU stopped working. There is no display and no sound. And if i press CD eject button, i can hear the mechanicals of CD eject working, which means that there is no power issue. I tried resetting the HU, and on pressing reset button i could hear only the CD (eject) mechanicals working. No display or sound from the HU. What are my options? What should i do?

      1. Can there be some small issue and the HU can be repaired? Or is there any power issue? Or should i just dump the HU and buy a new one?

      2. If i have to buy a new one, i would like to remove the old one and install new one by myself. So a JVC HU would be preferred as any connectors/cables, if custom, could be reused. Is it correct line of thought? I am not so good at DIY.

      3. If new HU is needed, if it is JVC then any model recommendation? If any other brand, then any recommendation? The current setup is JBL components for front and JBL coaxials for rear, both 5 or 5.5 inches.

      I do not need CD function, that is the least used source. Neither do i connect my Android phone or iphone/iPod (i do not own one). The HU needs to support only USB (solely MP3) and FM. 1-Din, non-touch. Not too expensive, but need good sound quality. If HU supports Bluetooth pairing of phone for call making/receiving, that would be a plus.

      Budget: May be about 5k.

      Any suggestions?

      If the HU has a detachable faceplate, try using some kind of electrical contact cleaner.

      I had tried cleaning using dry cloth earlier, it did not help. I have wd40, will that work for cleaning? Or any other stuff?

      I don't think with that budget you will find something nice with Bluetooth capability and 3 pre outs which I believe are essentials for a good HU.

      However I bumped into some from Pioneer recently, you can check them out.

      Pioneer SPH-C19BT - 7K may come out lesser at store
      Pioneer DEH-S3190BT - new addition

      Do i need 3 pre-outs? My cuurent speaker setup is: 2 component+twitters with some cross-over (i think JBL GTO 500 for front door) & 2 coaxials (some JBL speakers for rear doors) . There is no amplifier. Just speakers, and i am not going to do any changes in this setup.

      I think the same unit with JVC branding and is cheaper than kenwood.

      Not WD40. Don't know the brand. But, ask for "contact cleaner". That's what the Alpine service center guy told me once.

      Thanks for tag speed79, but I am such a wrong person to be advising about ICE.

      The JVC KD-X351BTMN looks good enough. I personally prefer Pioneer better though : Pioneer MVH-289BT
