    Big Country - Jensen stereo removal

    Has anyone removed the Jensen receiver in their 3450 BC. I want to get to the back of the receiver to verify audio input connections so that I can connect the TV to it. What is the secret to removing the Jensen Receiver. Please feel free to respond if you know the answer.

    I have an 09 with the Jenson CD/DVD and have removed many times.
    Just remove the 4 screw that are holding the unit in and pull it out slowly.
    On Model 970 you need to remove the trim ring before the screws can be accessed

    Yes - you can remove the Jensen to get to the back of the unit. There is a face plate around the border that just snaps off/on. After removing the face plate, you will find 4 screws that hold the unit in place. We have had the unit in/out several times trying to figure out how to run the blue ray thru the surround sound which so far doesn't look like it can be done. Good luck.

    Our 3450TS came wired to the Jensen system. If you haven't done so already, be sure to try all the audio options on the TV menu. Maybe it is a simple thing!

    A thin bladed flat screwdriver or knife can be used to carefully pry off the trim piece to access the screws. There are several pigtails that were well marked on mine so it is easy to make your connections. The had the audio in connections hooked to the audio in connections on the TV so I had to swap them for the right setup.

    Sounds like I need to do something similar in my BH. Sound out of the Sharp TV is not good. DH complains when he can't hear. I'll check it out next week when we pull it out and I can get to it. Love the info I get from this forum.

    Re: ATF: Big Country - Jensen stereo removal

    Congratulations!!! Question-do you have the Sharp or Toshiba TV??? We just fixed someone else Big Horn to use all speakers with the Jensen unit by using the earphone jacks on the back of the Sharp to the aux. plug on the back of the Jensen. Our BC came with a Toshita TV and there is no earphone jacks on it. Has any else fix this problem with a Toshiba TV?

    I had to connect the aux wire so that when you want to use the surround with the TV it will work.  The Jensen isn`t a bad receiver but the speakers suck, I want to replace them with 100 watt or more speakers.  Does anyone know the watts on the receiver itself?? Or were to get higher watt Jensens that match the ones we have.

    Re: ATF: Big Country - Jensen stereo removal

    Ok Can someone help me with the electronics? I pulled the Jenson unit out, it is the 970 and I pulled out the unit. Can't get it to work with my Toshiba TV. Even the Menu on the remote for the Jenson will not open up the menu. Do not understand it? Any help on what I can do to make the surround sound work for the TV sure would be helpful..
