Thumbs down Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

Same thing happens to mine occasionally when I first start it up in the morning. The display is blank and not lit up at the same time that this happens, pressing in the volume knob to turn it off and then back on corrects it. Also after I drive away in the morning with the radio turned off the fjammer display will light up like it it turning on and then go dark again.

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

I had my head unit replaced and that fixed the issue of the volume knob not working. Take it to the dealership and let them know there is a problem, that is your best bet on getting it fixed. I had to go back a few times as it didn't misbehave on cue, but I eventually got a new unit.

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

I get the volume control issue along with the backlight coming on and off. It's happened 4-5 times already. Turning the head unit power on and off works (for the most part) although once I didn't and I had to actually turn the car off and on.
Gonna call the dealer and get the unit swapped out.
I'm sure there will be reacall on them soon.....

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

For the record I entered a post several months ago relative to the lights on the buttons on my radio occassionally flashing on and off. The radio was not even turned on. Wiggling the power knob usually cleared it up. Lately, the problem has gone away. My dealer volunteered to replace the radio next time I was in for service. Their telephone diagnosis was that the problem was internal to the radio and not a loose wire running to the radio. I will post a resolution after I go in for service.

Have you had it where the dc's won't load? My new one is on order but meanwhile I can't listen to CD's. Luckily the nano fits in the center console.

Yes. Any CD track, it just stops and then starts again, sometimes it takes a few seconds sometimes a minute or so... I thought it was a motion sensor tripping when hitting a bump but, it is probably derived from the same problem the volume knob and whatever it controls.... and it is starting to get tiresome.

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

And I thought it was just my radio...........same problem, volume doesn't work,display randomly changes colors, radio turns on / off. I just press in the volume knob (on/off) and all is well. It happens pretty much daily, but not worth the time to take to the dealer for a radio. I'll just wait till it goes completely and go aftermarket. Guess I'll lose the use my steering wheel controls that I never use anyway!

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

My Fjammer is about done again, it now turns
on, well plays music when it is off, with no
lights/screen being on, and also will turn off
while the lights/screen is on... I just need it
to do that whil I am at the dealer now... Then
I will be selling a BRAND new Fjammer, and
upgrading to an aftermarket I guess, it suks,
since I do klie the thing, and would rather
keep it, but with the warrenty winding down,
it would just be a waste if this keeps happening...

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

Unrelated other than I started the initial post. About a year ago my second FJammer ate a CD. It crunched the edge up a bit and wouldn't give me the CD. I eventually got it out and of course the dealership wouldn't do anything without seeing it happen.

I gave up trying to recreate the issue and let the FJammer continue to work, until a few months ago where it wouldn't load CDs. It showed Err 3 I think. They saw that, checked to see if my kids jammed pennies or crayons in it and replaced the FJammer again. I am on my third FJammer and hope this one lasts as my warranty runs out real soon.

Re: FJammer Controls Stop Working

Sell it on Here or Ebay, and get an Aftermarket
one while the NEW one is in NEW condition...
IMO anyway... I luv the Jammer, but when mine
gets changed out the next time, I will be seeking
a new head unit...

LOLOL... As my last post stated... I very set about it I guess... LOL...
