Question about JVC RX-884V Receiver

2 Answers

Video out problem

Yesterday my daughter bought a new component cabinet. When we wired up the components including the JVC RX884V receiver, she attached the yellow RCA video cable into the red RCA audio jack on the receiver. Now we do not get a picture on the TV when attached through this receiver. I do get a picture when connected directly to the DirectTV box using the coax cable. I have tried the S video cable also, again with no luck. What could have blown in the receiver? Are there any fuses in this receiver that could be checked? What do you suggest I do next? How expensive might it be get the receiver repaired? Thanks, John

John, I have a JVC reciever. The yellow RCA video plug goes in the Yellow video jack on the back of the reciever. The red is for right audio and the white is for left audio. try that.

Hi there might be a protector circuit and then it needs only a reset OR the amplifier and a couple of diodes have been shorted the fix can be very cheap (reset) or very expensive (depends if the amp itself is burned) in any way you got warranty!! (it wont work if you will say that you didnt hook it right....) good luck

My system doesn't work when i'm watching t.v.? It only works while playing dvd's..

"Doesn't work". Do you mean no TV audio at the TV? No TV audio from the receiver? No Video? Both?

MOST IMPORTANT: Is this a new setup or did the problem appear after working for awhile?

I'm going to guess it's a new installation with no audio while watching TV.

Generally, most TV watching originates with a cable box. There will probably be some sort of analog or digital audio output on the cable box. Connect it to the Aux In or Optical Digital In on the receiver as applicable. Select the appropriate input when watching TV.

The video from the cable box will depend on the box, too, but it appears this unit will only accept Composite or S-Video In. If your cable box has a higher quality connection (Component or HDMI), I'd run it directly to the TV for the best video but still use the digital audio feed to the JVC. Let the specialized parts of the chain deal with their specialties - audio or video.

Of course, if your TV has only one HDMI, you will have to choose which source uses it. HDTV would get my vote for it as it needs the best conenction for maximum enjoyment. If the TV has Component (3-wire) Video inputs, I'd use that from the receiver for DVD viewing. I have both myself and see no difference with DVD video between HDMI and component video.

If you lack the manual that speaks to all of this, go to, register and download it for free. It’s a combination JVC TH-C40 C50 and C60 manual.

Component Cable

Component video quality is better then Composite Video (yellow wire)
Of course component cable hook up will improve picture quality.

Cant get the wiring figured out.........

I have a similar set up. For yours, I would run one optical from your Sat box to your 407 and connect the DVD player optical to the Kenwood as well. This will allow you to get whatever your watching, DVD or Satellite to your speakers. For Video, use the component cables to connect DVD player to TV. For the SAT box, coaxial to TV or S video to TV will give you about the same video quality. I hope this helps. A couple of suggestions: Your new screen size will greatly magnify the quality of your video, what looked good on the Sharp may not look good on the Samsung due to the size difference. I REALLY suggest you get a new SAT box with a HDMI connection. Also you can get a blu ray player in the $120 range. The Blu ray will play blu rays and upconvert DVDs to a higher quality picture through its HDMI connection. You will be amazed at the difference HDMI will make on how your TV will look!

Do you have your other components wired to the Onkyo. The monitor output isn't the best way to go. If your TV has component inputs or an HDMI you should run one of those instead, running a composite video cable will only get you analog at best.

If you are content with running analog you may need to go into the menu on your tv and select the type of video input you are using. The same goes for your receiver, switch the output to analog out.

Cannot play VHS

Combo DVD/VCR players don't output the VHS with Component Video. Most of the time, it won't output over the S-Video either. The high end outputs are ONLY for DVD output. You must run a yellow wire, or use coax cable to get the video. Same goes for the optical digital sound out. It's only for DVD use.
