I have an old (but still excellent) JVC CA-TD5 compact

Customer Question
I have an old...

I have an old (but still excellent) JVC CA-TD5 compact component Tuner/CD system. There is a wide flat connecting cable linking the 2 parts of the system. Is there an extension available for this, as I need to separate the two modules slightly more than the current cable length allows.

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your JVC is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 15-20 years CA-TD5 The 2 components are RX-TD5 and XT-TD5.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I am placing them in a new shelf. Until now the short cable length has not been a problem, but in the new shelf I need just a few cms more. One end clips in and out of the module but the other end is hard wired into the unit, so I cant just buy a longer cable, I need an extension for the current one.

There isn't an off-the-shelf extension available, however a local electronics shop could custom-make one for you quite easily.
