Question about JVC RX-517V Receiver
Out of the blue, the unit would not stay turned on. Turning it on in any mode caused it to stay on for a second and then shut down to standby mode. No messages were displayed, just the name of the mode it was in(phono, cd,tv/audio,etc). After trying the power button a few more times, to no avail, the unit stopped responding at all. No buttons will create any response. We finally just unplugged it. Dust could be a factor. I have looked for the jvc rx-517x owner's manual online to no avail. If there is one available, I will happily read it. We inherited the unit. thank you jen
There is some sort of setting you need to change on the JVC receiver. I had this same problem, and I read the manual and it solved it. You need to press and hold down a button to change the mode. Your unit probably says "TV Sound" right now. Once you press this button (not sure what button) like the manual says, the display should change to "DBS" and then it should work just fne.

I replaced R916 with a 10 ohm wire wound resister and that fixed the problem on the unit I have. That resister is in serise with R 915 so they should be close in value. Both were marked 8 ohms but tested about 11 ohms on R915 and the bad one tested very high (over 1 meg) so I replaced it. When I first put it back together it didn't work but I noticed that the ground screw at EP901 was not retighted so be sure that all ground screws are tight and all conections are redone before testing with the power cord.

The above describes my same issue w/ my JVC RX-9010 receiver.
How do you determine if a transistor is bad? What equipment besides an analog multimeter would I need? I am out of work so replacing this is not an option. I can solder as well so if I can ID the transistor I gather I can repair this cheaply? Many Thanks!
