If you even think something might be wired wrong I would require it not only is it a fire hazard but you can fry the mobo with to much current.

More than likely something is overloading the unit and is causing the heat issue the area that is hot is where a heat sink sits on the main board so it will get warm with normal use.

Power cord overheating at outlet - melted cord a bit - very scary will not use anymore - my outlet looks a little brown now - Delonghi 9707 electric heater

Hi, what causes this could be a couple of different things. Yes, do not use this outlet until the problem is solved. Normally this is caused by your heater drawing more amperage then it was intended to do, due to a problem in the heater . Not knowing the age of your home, the electrical wiring through out may be the old aluminum wiring that has stopped being used due to the problem of this type of wiring heating up at outlets causing them to burn the insulation off of the wiring, burning out the receptacles, and in many cases in the past, burning down the home, not to to scare you. I will offer you some solutions to find out if your home is wired with aluminum wiring. Don't be afraid to do this for me. You need to find the breaker that shuts the power down to that outlet and area of the house. If you are not afraid to plug something into it for a few minutes and have a helper turn off breakers until you know it is dead. Once you have done this, take a regular or phillips driver and remove the 1 screw to take off the plate cover. Now, remove the 2 screws at the top and bottom of the outlet. This will take it loose from the electrical juntion box, so you can get a look at the wiring and damage to this. Normally, you will see any where from 3 up to six wires depending on if its what we call the start of the run, middle of the run, and so on. Wire colors will be black for hot and white for neutral. You will know if the wiring is copper or aluminum. If you think you are up for this, you can change this yourself. A new outlet is about $1.19. 1st, buy a couple so you will have a spare. The newer ones have screws on the side, and on the back have quick connects to strip the insulation back and just plug and push into a small hole that locks the wires. Facing the plug, black should be on the left side and white on the right. Another way to tell on the new plug is the color of the screws that hold the wires in place. Look at it and on one side the screws will be brass in color which is for the hot black wires. The other will be silver in color for neutral. If you find that the wiring is aluminum, there is nothing you can do but make sure all wiring connections are always tight! If you have to go through the complete home a little at a time to check all outlets only if they are aluminum, its worth the time! Do this once every couple of years or so and check and tighten, not so with copper wire. If copper, just check the one outlet. You can pick up a inexpensive pair of wire strippers and if the wire is aluminum, buy a small tube of nolox which is a gray paste they use on aluminum wiring to help keep it from oxidizing. Has different names, but you will find what you need in the same isle at home depot to do the job. Just cut off any brittle or hard wire and strip a 1/4 inch off the ends, either wrap around the screws on the side cw, not ccw, or use the quick connects in the back. When you are getting these items, pick up a new cord for your heater. Very easy to replace. Just follow where the cord goes into the heater until you find where the ends terminate and remove the old and install the new. You will have to have a few connectors and remove a cover on the heater, but really it is very simple. Just remember this, if the wiring is copper just get a new outlet and replace that and the cord. I believe this all started with that one outlet having loose wiring. If you don't feel like you can handle this, you still need to find out what kind of wiring you have so you are up on the dangers and consult a electric repairmen. I sincerely hope I have given you some direction to follow on this, and hope you will take on these minor repairs. Please be kind as I know you will, when rating this thread.

PS, just to say there will be a ground wire normally bare that will connect to a screw on the corner of the new plug, depending on the age of your home also. If no ground wire, leave it blank :))

Brazing aluminum pipe for automotive ac.

This tip can save you a whole bunch if you ever had a busted aluminum pipe on your AC line. A typical ac line is not only expensive but most of the the time auto parts would have to order them.
First you will need a propane brazing torch, brazing rods, and a clean wire brush.
Procedure; Fisrt clean the surface really good with the wire brush. The key to a working with aluminum is a very clean surface. Even if it looks clean the oxidation is not noticable. Set it all up so that you are comfortable while you are doing the brazing. Next, fire up the brazing torch. ( Do not use oxygen just plain propane torch will do the job much better.) Heat up the surface that need to be repaired. Now be patient and let the working surface get hot enough. You will know if it is hot enough because if you rub the aluminum brazing rod to the surface, it will smear and turn liquid and cling well to the aluminum pipe that you are working on. You have to rub the aluminum rod untill it builds up taking the flame away momentarily then putting it back on if it gets too hot. If you never done this before, practice on a piece of thin piece of aluminum first. With a little practice, you can repair many aluminum things in the house too. Even an aluminum radiator or the condenser or the evaporator in your cars a/c. Those aluminum brazing rods are actually harder than aluminum so the repair is permanent if done right, but they melt at lower temperature than aluminum. All these item can be bought at ace hardware. Home depot and lowes stopped carrying them in my area. So good luck and have fun on your new found money saving skill. Remember "clean surface" and get it hot enough first" Note* If the hole is too close to the rubber hose, wrap some wet rag to the pipe close to the rubber so that heat will not damage the hose.

Opening the CD player on a JVC UX-RC7 micro component system

Hello i had the same problem..maybe you have already fixed this but on the back you have the speakers and a pair of red and black switches, you have to put the wires into the holes on the TOP (not the sides) of the little box on the back...then once you have put the wires in flick the flaps UP :)

Sorry if you have already solved this problem but I hope it will come in use for someone.

JVC KD-AVX33 stopped transmintting sound to speakers.....

I am experiencing battery drain from this unit. It gets blazing hot while not in use! I'm thinking the only option I have left is to install a switch on the 12v constant power wire, but then I'd have to set it up all over again each time I get in my car. I don't know what else to do. Stupid JVC with their stupid customer service reps. There will be no JVC products in my future.

CD player heats up

The reason the CD it is gettng hot is because of the amplifier IC in the radio. The CD player is right in front of the amp IC and it is all in an enclosed area with little ventilation. They do get hot after a while.

It is not unusual for a CD to get hot after playing for a while.

The JVC stereos are known for having a bad spindle motor. That can cause the problem you are describing. A bad laser pick up can also cause the same thing.

There is no way of knowing just what the cause of your problem is without having it tested by a technician.

The laser pick up is more prone to failure from heat if it is getting weak.

The spindle motor is a little more common problem with the JVC car CD players.

But I have repaired both of those problems in JVC CD players many times.

I work at a JVC authorized service center, Most of the JVC CD players use the exact same CD mech, whether it is a cheap unit or a more exspensive one.

The only user action that you can do is to run a cleaning disc thru it for about 20 to 30 seconds. But that is not going to change your problem, you need to have it checked out at a service center, but if it is not under warranty it may not be worth getting fixed. The repair can run from $70 to $125 depending on the rates of the service center.

If you need any more help or questions answered, feel free to ask. And if this was helpful to you a good rating would really be appreciated.
