Question about JVC RX-318 Receiver

2 Answers

Blown something? No amplification?

My receiver still turns on and I can here a faint sound if I turn the volume way up. It was working fine until a day when there was some very brief power dips due to whether or folks working on the lines. Is it a blown fuse and where? Or something to do with the amplification? Is it worth taking to be serviced or cheaper to get something new? (At over 5 years old it's well past any warranty.) Or could I learn to find and fix the blown part with pluck and skill? Thanks for any advice.

If you hear a faint sound I doubt if a fuse is blown?? never Know though. You have to have and know how to use a DVM or muti-meter to trouble shoot solid state electronics, as well as know how to solder and check transistors and other electronic parts. There wouldnt be one particular thing that could cause your problem. There could be a several things wrong as transistors and ICs tend to snowball and short out or open up with power surges. If you want , first get a schematic, but if you dont know how to read one stop right here and save your money and upgrade to a shiney new stereo system.. Good Luck

Clearly, it thinks you're overdriving it.

Blinking Power Indicator every 2 seconds means the internal temperature is high. (Page 76 of the manual)

Every half-second - speaker impedance too low.

Consider the load presented by the speakers and what their minimum impedance might be.

Check for loose speaker wires.

Probably the radio have a cold wireing somwhere betwen audio IC and output conector on the PCB. you should made a visual inspection and resolder the bad conections between PCB and electronic components.

I would try and clean your switches and controls before giving up on the receiver. use de-ox-id contact cleaner on the volume control and switches. Larry's Electronics

Suddenly, I can only hear the sound faintly, even though it's turned up full volume on my Yamaha HTR 5560. What happened? I've played around everywhere with the converter now. Restore defaults anywhere?...


Have you checked the MUTE function?

NEVER turn the volume up more than half-way for any sound problem. Otherwise, if you suddenly find the switch that's out of position you could blow your speakers.

What converter?

What channels, what source(s)?

The left side sound is intermittent


Sounds like dirt in the volume control or a high resistance speaker wire.
Try switching the right and left speaker wires and see if the problem changes.
