Question about JVC TH-C60 System

1 Answer

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.

I just bought this system today and hooked it up. Everything appears to be fine by first glance but as soon as the volume reaches a certain level (which is only moderately loud) it shuts off. Any suggestions?

Re: Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.

Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.

Front bose speakers and bass module stopped puttimg put sound

If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

A loud buzz sound when the surround sound unit is powered on.

There is most likely a voltage regulation fault, or some filter capacitors that are going defective. It would be best to have this serviced before the parts fail completely and cause some damage.
