Question about JVC RX-517V Receiver

Open Question

Unit not responding.

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

SOURCE: System automatically shuts itself off after a few seconds.

I have no Idea, I have My JVC system sitting in a closet. I got it in 2004, and It was working fine, and all of a sudden it stopped and went into protect mode. I have no idea what to do about it.

But this is what I did.

I unplugged it and I let it sit for 24 hours to see if it would Reset the microprocessor, that did nuttin'. So I took it apart ^_^ That was fun! and I checked all the wires for loose connections, and I made sure te cables were in there tight. My unit is a pretty old though, I have a surround sound system, but usually a good blast of canned air may clean the circuit board and the components.

SOURCE: JVC RX-888V hook up to cable box - no video

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.

Why My TV does not turn on and makes a clicking noise?

Hi .

The second click that you hear is an internal device called protection circuit that is shutting down the TV, and forcing the PSU to +5V low only to keep the TV in standby.
That is called protect mode.

If the TV stays in stand-by, with the LED light on, but does not respond to remote, or to the buttons on the chassis, then that means that the TV has gone in protect (safe) mode because an internal fault had been detected.

In that case the TV is usually faulty.

The fuse on the PSU board is not causing protect mode. When the fuse has blown , then the unit stays completely off.

Common faults on this model are Electrolytic capacitors on PSU board (power board), convergence ICs (convergence board). The parts must be tested before replacement. Less common faults could cause the same problem.

Follow the basic troubleshooting on this article: Why my TV does not start up and remains in...

If that does not work, contact the manufacturer, ringing the support number listed on the owners manual to get the TV repaired by a licensed technician.

Unit turns on for about a few seconds and shuts off. bucket full light stays on. Micro-switch is ok what else could that be

Possibly., the unit turning ON vibrates the bucket in such a way, that it loses contact with the safety switch and the unit shuts OFF. If the dehumidifier is not sitting level, it would cause the bucket to shake more than usual. In addition, if you haven't cleaned the filter recently, I would suggest that you do that. A dirty or clogged filter causes the unit to struggle and if it is to much to handle, it will cause it to shut OFF. Before you attempt remove the filter, turn OFF the Master ON/OFF Switch and Unplug the unit. Be sure you do it in the order I listed.

Hope this helps you further to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Unit only stays on for 4 seconds then turns itself off.

This is a short or unstable ohm load. Remove all speaker wire connections to see if the amp will stay on.
If the problem goes away when disconnecting the speaker wires try this:
1) Check volume level on zone one and zone 2 if connected. If it is too high the amp will go into protect mode and shut off exactly as you described.
2) Make sure no wires are touching any other wire or the metal surface of the amp. This will cause a short and send the amp into protect mode.

Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Amp turns of after 2 seconds of turning on

It is going into protection mode, and shutting itself off. You have a short somewhere. I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for assistance. This is not easy to diagnose, as it could be anything causing the short.

Try disconnecting everything from the unit, including the speakers, and turning on again. This will just confirm that the problem is the amp, and nothing external. Also, try connecting it to a different power supply/socket.

Power will not stay on

With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.

Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.

Lasko 5365 Ceramic Compact Heater Troubleshooting Forum.

Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater. The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating.

The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor.

Good luck!
