Open Question

JVC THC30 no subwoofer power = no sound

I have had this system for some time now. The subwoofer just refused to power up at all one day! Everything else seems to be working correctly, including the dvd player! But all the speakers plug into the subwoofer. The subwoofer just doesnt power up! Yes i have power to the outlet! Does anyone know what the problem could be?

SOURCE: My JVC THC30 subwoofer won't

If you're saying you have a defective subwoofer that keeps the system from coming up you might find one on eBay. many owners of HTIB's sell off the remaining bits as parts die off.

Or maybe your subwoofer comment is not related to your power problem.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

You must have an external cable connection from the DVD audio output to the surround DVD input. As well there should be an output from the surround marked subwoofer. Connect them with the proper cable

My JVC THC30 subwoofer won't power on therefore no sound since all the speakers run through it. How can I fix this or is there a way to replace just the subwoofer?

I have the sub woofer and two sp-thc5f front speakers. Can I hook this subwoofer directly to my JVC 56 high def big screen or do I need a dedicated amplifier that works this sub wooofer?


No, the powered subwoofer gets its signal AND power through the DIN connector so you'd have to second guess JVC engineers on which pins are power or signal; and what voltage level it supplies and then you'd have to come up with a source for the power. Managing the volume and relative levels would be a trick, too. Devastation lies down that path.

Get the prescribed JVC electronics or go with a whole new sound solution.

My JVC TH-C5 System subwoofer has power problem. when i plug it, the power light is not showing. electrician checked the power panel but can't find a solution. please if u can help, reply! thanks. waiting...


Did ur techman checked the fuse?
Normally, that is the one first to be BUSTED before everything else?
If there are no POWER at all the POWER IC is the culprit, and check the DiODES!
Tell me more!

Subwoofer powers on for about 4 seconds and then shutsdown


I don't know if you were able to get the problem fixed, but I had the same sort of problem where it worked and then all of a sudden it stopped working right in the middle of a movie.
I took it to a repair shop and he found that it was the power supply... a $4.00 part.

JVC TH-A10 Won't TUrn on...


Unplug the JVC and the subwoofer from that outlet. Then, plug them back to a different outlet (where power is constant and not interupted by any switch.) Hope this helps

Subwoofer not powering up


I could either be the sub or the main unit. The main unit actually sends a signal to the sub to turn it on so if that circuit is bad in the main unit the sub is never going to come on. I've also seen bad cables (You'd be amazed at how stubborn people can be when din connectors don't cooperate).

What system are you using it with, how do you have it connected, when you say the system does not work as a result, does it mean that the system does not power up, or no sound?
