Question about JVC TH-S3 System

16 Answers

Broken part(s) on rear of unit

I have a JVC home theatre surround sound system, model TH-S3. I have broken the thumb tabs for the "center" speaker terminals on the rear of the unit. They are where you plug in the positive (+) and the negative (-) ends of the speaker wire to connect the speaker(s) to the system. These tabs have spring tension, holding the positive and negative ends of the speaker wire against the metal in order to create a connection. With these tabs broken, I have no tension holding the wire ends in place where they should be (for connectivity). I have been using small tooth picks and jamming them in the hole to hold the wire(s) in place but would like to replace the parts in order to fix the issue entirely. However, I can't locate a part # for this piece, nor can I determine if I would be able to replace just the "center" speaker terminals or if I'm looking at needing to replace the whole panel of terminals for all of the speakers. Please help if you can. Any information as far as what part or parts I may need and what their part numbers are would be great. Also, any advice you may have as far as how to replace this part(s) would be great too. Thank you very much!!!

    Please help me with the part number or numbers I may need for replacement(s). I have a place I may be able to get the part(s) needed, but need to know what the part number(s) are. Also, please help with advice on how to actually replace the part(s) on the machine once I get them. Thank you.

With all the suggestions you have marked as not being very useful I would say that since all off this has not helped you that you should take it into a professional and have them order the part and repair the unit.

I usually just solder a wire to it then connect the wire to the wire that i soldered to the connection. Makes it easy and you will have a secure connection. Easy, cheap fix. Not as cheap as those cheap plastic tabs though.
Thanks

Welcome to fixya!

If you go to manualuniverse.com, you can download a service manual for this unit...once you have the service manual, you can find a part number for the speaker terminal block. Then you can go from there and order the part from the manufacturer or you may be able to find a parts house that carries it as well. Just google the part number once you have it, you'll be suprised to see what may pop up!

On the part which is broken there will be a alphabet written on it you have to check out that and refer that to the source which you had stated that can supply you a required part.just check out properly on the broken part a small number or a alphabet written on it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Would the speaker terminal you are referring to look like the image below?
broken part(s) on rear of unit - 08d0ad7.jpg
If yes, readily available from most electronics part stores, even RadioShack.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    It would appear that the center speaker terminal is part of an array of speaker terminals.

    Replacing would be a matter of getting the top cover off, marking where the wires or connectors go to and re-wiring/re-soldering the replacement speaker terminal array.

    JVC proprietary part number plus detailed instructions are available from the service manual.

    Pls confirm with the actual part QNB0189-001.

Problem with surround sound on JVC Th-C5 sound system


Not sure how you're hooked up or what model TV you're using. If you mean the TV sound through RCA cables is the source and you're wondering why it's not surround. Well, it's not multichannel. Please fill in some details.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

Missing center speaker


Yes, you can connect all the other speakers and not have a center speaker. It will not damage the amplifier. But be aware, that many of the surround functions will not sound good without the center speaker. In just about every surround mode the center speaker gets more audio to it than any other speaker. It would sound better if you took one of the rear speakers and used it for a center speaker and have one rear speaker output no connected. The rear speakers get the least amount of sound going to them in all surround modes.

I hope this helps and a Fixya! rating would be appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering people like yourself free help. Most people never even bother to rate our free help here.

Thanks,
