Question about JVC RX-8010V Receiver

Open Question

Switches Source input on its own

I have a JVC RX801v amplifier. The problem is that it changes input sources on it's own. Sometimes it is a constant annoyance, other times it will go for hours and be OK. Usually I am using it in the TV/DBS mode and it will most frequently switch to DVD and sometimes VCR mode....without any input. I even tried putting black tape over the infrared receiver on the amp to insure it wasn't getting any spurious remote commands, but it would switch anyway. Thanks!

SOURCE: sound cut-out

Most likely this unit goes into protect mode due to heat detection. Try to see if there is a pattern to when this behavior starts. Does a lower volume level allow the unit to run longer? Perhaps there is a problem internally that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output stage. This will cause excessive heat which can then cause the protection circuit to kick in. This unit may need to see a bench with some test gear to locate the exact problem. If you can, look for any pattern and update this.

SOURCE: JVC RX558 VBK, Crackling noise from speakers

A quick quess of mine is the following:

The OVERLOAD indicator lights up when the receiver is maxing out on the current it is sending to the speakers. My guess is there is possibly something wrong with the receiver itself, especially since the B speakers won't play. Either that, or something is broken in your speakers or you are using a set of speakers that have too low an impedance rating for your receiver.

SOURCE: JVC RX-9010V - Setting up Digital Inputs

Just to the left of the volume is a "settings" button. Press it and cycle through the options until you reach "Digital Coax," then use the "Control" up and down buttons to change the assigned source.

SOURCE: JVC RX-9010VBK receiver - premap section won't turn on normally

It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

Russound CA6.4 amp / controller - 3 of the 6 zones can't switch source inputs.

I suspect the inputs will all go into an IC. You just need to trace one of them back till you come across it. Either the circuit around it will be the problem, or more likely the IC itself.

Make sure the yellow wire is going to a source that has 12v going to it when the key is turned off. The yellow wire controls the memory and needs a constant voltage source.

It says "Source Direct" and

I think that your receiver might be set to the wrong input. Try to change the input to "tuner" and you should be able to hear the FM radio. To change the input, all you need to do is press the button labled either source or input

DVD player re-sets with ignition

either bad ground at headunit or you don't have tha yellow 12+ constant wire on the jvc hooked to an actual 12+ source maybe it is not a source that is capable of the amount of current that jvc needs

Sound output problems

Are you saying a stereo source sometime switches to multichannel? In my experience, that's the opposite of what I think could be happening.

Many AVR's have automation that can be set to select the better of the two audio paths from a source if you have analog and digital assigned to the same input. If digital is present, it prefers it. If the signal degrades or goes away, it switches to analog. I think it's trying to tell you the hdmi cable connection or the source is flaky.

Perhaps you could flesh out the details of what input is being used and also look at the source device. Isolate the cause by swapping it to another compatible input and/or trying another cable.

TV does not turn on, it only makes a ticking noise.

Sometimes the input, or source has been changed without your knowledge. Try to change the input button either through the remote, or directly on the monitor. This should rotate you between the snow screen, cable and another input screen. One of them should be moer than just the black screen you see.
