Hi everyone , picked up an JVC RV-DP-100 Kaboom box on a local classiified site for $10 .. came with remote, strap , pouch for remote and power cord.
Problem : Unit would sit in standby mode, when pressing the power button , it would power on for 3 seconds then shut itself off.
After some research , even tried resoldering circuit board connections , freshening the joints. Didn`t work , same problem.
Removed the top carriage that houses the cd player and 2 other boards , one , the middle one , contained the IC`s ..

Here is where the cables were plugged in , cleaned these as well..
Carefully reassembled the unit , and no power issues at all.
The cd player works, the cassette needed a belt and a slight azimuth adjustment .. The new owner of this $10 Kaboom, is very hap-pay!

Just figured would put it out there in case someone else ran into these types of problems on their kabooms...
Have a great night everyone!
