Question about JVC RX-1028V Receiver

Turns on by itself

My JVC has recently been turning on by itself. We never had this problem before, but recently moved and when I hooked it up (there were some new connections, as we had not used with the television before) it started turning on by itself. I am afraid it will overheat if it is constantly on, beside the fact I don't want sound on all of the time. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: turns on by itself

If the tv turns on only since you plugged in the TV, it is made to detect the sound from the tv and turn on. Unplug the tv wires from the receiver and see if that works.

Re: turns on by itself

First thing to do is to take out the batteries out of the remote and see if it still turns on by itself. If it doesnt, go to and get a new one. If it does still have a problem, Its most likly in the remote IR sensor or the microprocessor and this has or should be diagnoised by a trained tech as its all solid state and the way to do this would be to look at the waveforms in the remote,microprocessor,and power supply circuit. Good Luck

I have a JVC RX-7010V AUDIO/VIDEO CONTROL RECEIVER. And I can not get it to hook up to my TV for surround sound I have to hook it up through my headphone jack on my TV.

On the back of the JVC receiver, there should be a TV input, Coax IN and OUT or AUX input (I don't remember if this model had HDMI). On the back of your TV, there should be an AUDIO OUT, connect this to either the TV or AUX inputs and make sure on your TV, to set the Audio Out is On in the TV menu. Turn on JVC and set input to TV and adjust volume. Another way is using the COAX input and outputs. Connect Output of cable box to Input of JVC, then connect Output of TV to Input on TV.

Why would JVC 8010 optic digital randomly malfunction?

I don't know if this helps but, if you have your bluray hooked directly to your tv some times TVs can have issues sending the proper channel to audio out to the receiver. You should always connect your bluray and other devices directly to your receiver.

if that's not the case,
Try turning the tv speakers back on, test the bluray hooked directly to the tv and see if things work flawlessly just with the tv and bluray.

If they don't there may be something just wrong with the cables.

If they do work flawlessly then there may be something wrong with the receiver.

If you already had your bluray connected to the receiver, I would still try direct to tv test and swapping cables.

The randomness leads me to think cables. But you can rule them out by testing directly to TV.

I hope that helps

E1@cox.neti have a jvc rx-809v and I was wondering if it was posibbie to hook up an a sansui amp to compinsate for the lack of base

You mean 'bass'.

Amplifiers only amplify what is already there in the signal. By design, with all controls set to neutral or flat, they don't create or loose anything.

Speakers, on the other hand, are responsible for turning the electrical input into moving air. Good bass usually requires moving a lot of air.

Poor speaker placement or speakers wired out of phase with each other can **** the bass out of a room.

Web search for articles on bass response and speaker placement.

This receiver has a built-in Equalizer. Perhaps you could use IT to compensate for the tonal shortcomings of the speakers and environment.

I have a fisher ca-9335 integrated stereo amplifier thats hooked up to sanyo tp 1010 turn table and plays out of yamaha ns-70t speakers. a simple jvc cd player is also hooked up to the speakers but not to...

Something doesn't add up. You mention two connections to the speakers - CA-9335 and a "simple jvc cd player". Is that true? If so, you might want to UNconnect the CD from the speakers and run it into the receiver where it belongs. An amp isn't designed to share the load with another live device; or even have electrical contact with anything BUT speakers.

Did you actually find documentation that supports this hook-up? Or just winging it?

My JVC RX6000VBK does not get the signal from or to my subwoofer.

i had the same problem a few times, they are pretty picky receivers.
first take a look in your settings and make sure none of your speakers are set on large, if they are they automatically shut off the woofer,
2, try the adjust option and crank the bass and throw on the bass boost
3. manually turn the woofer on through the receiver itself
4. try and turn up the woofer itself if is powered
5. try hooking the woofer up to the secondary speaker jacks by bridging it, (positive on left and negative on right for even power)

if none of these options work then the woofer itself may be defective even though it lights up

Unable to hook the receiver up to the television

Mine used to work but I recently moved and think I connected everything the same way, but I'm having the same problem you are now and I'm just curious if you ever solved the issue? For whatever reason, I'm simply not seeing the Dolby Pro Logic, PL Movie, etc. modes. Just the standard Stereo, Arena, Theater, etc. modes. I'm connected to the receiver's optical audio inputs both directly from my cable box and from the TV itself, so I feel like I must just be overlooking something simple.
