Question about JVC 500W 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Receiver

1 Answer

No power I powered up the receiver when it was erroneously connected to an ac outlet which was on a dimmer ( don't ask me what **** installed that). I got the red standby light but when I tried to go full power - there was a buzz. I hit the power off swithc but now, despite being connected to a good ac outlet, I get no power at all. Have I fried my receiver? Warranty is 2 months expired. Cathie

Cathie, What **** installed the dimmer? Sorry you said not to ask. No power and no stand-by light, it may need a stand-by power transformer or the main micro. If the stand-by light is on and the receiver clicks when you push the power button it may only need a fuse. Make sure you replace with a fast acting fuse of the same rating for current (amps). NOT WITH A SLOW BLOW FUSE!!! If it blows again there is somthing shorted and it needs service.

Can I run 110 /14 2 from a light switch down to power a 110 plug receptacle

Hi Don,

Shut the power off.

Inspect the switch.

If the switch has two cables (2 black & 2 white wires) which would indicate that power enters the switch on one cable and supplies the light through the switch on the other cable, you can supply a new outlet so that it can be on all the time or controlled by the switch. Either way, you'll need to run a 14/2 cable from the new outlet to the existing switch box. Connect the bare ground wire to all the other bare ground wires by adding it to the bundle in a wirenut; and connect the white wire (neutral) to the other two whites under a wirenut.

Power back on.

Using a meter or tester; carefully determine which of the black wires on the switch is "on" all time and which is turned "on and off" by the switch. Indicate which is which on the wire with tape, or other marker.

Power off.

Remove the wire you want to supply the outlet.

Cut a short (8" or so) length of insulated (black, red or blue in color) #14 copper wire & strip 3/4" off each end. Combine one end of this short wire, the original switch wire, and the black from new 14/2 cable together under a wirenut..

Connect the other end of the short black wire to the switch and put everything back together again.

Power back on.

The outlet will either be on all the time - or turn on and off by the position of the switch. You're done!

I hope this helps - if it was not the answer you were expecting, please describe how you want the switch, light & new outlet to work in greater detail.

I hooked up a 20amp circuit breaker to a 15amp recp. then to a 20amp gfci but my outlet tester reads open nutral. what's wrong?

You've lost a neutral connection at: one of the terminals somewhere; inside the outlet; broken strap between the neutral pads on the standard outlet; or the tester is providing an erroneous indication.

Does it read OK on the BOTH receptacles of the first outlet? Check the terminals that provide output on the first outlet and the LINE terminals of the GFCI . Bad at the first outlet? Check the input on the first outlet. Bad? Check splices between outlet and service panel and neutral connection at neutral bus bar inside panel. OK? Check the input to the GFCI - make sure on LINE terminals and proper polarity is observed.

Double check the line and load terminal screws of the GFCI outlet. Make sure that the power coming into the GFCI is connected to the LINE terminals. Be sure to connect the HOT and NEUTRAL wires to the proper LINE terminals. Neutral conductor (white) connects to the silver colored screws and hot (black or red) connects to the gold colored LINE screws. If you are sending power out to supply additional loads that are to be GFCI protected, the rules above apply - but connect to the LOAD screws.

When a question is presented to any forum, model number(s) are essential. Please provide any that you have and if you would. Just to make sure I'm fully understanding what you're asking, would you please rephrase your question?

A lot of models don't come with an AC/DC wall charger and it must be purchased separately but I'm fairly certain there is an alternate method to charge your unit. I'll be able to specifically determine how, once I have the model number.

FYI: The VEC070 1.5 Amp Automatic Charger is a commonly used charger for this type of jump-start system. Don't buy anything until we're certain.

I have a caver preamp high fidelity control console model c- 4000 and I have a power amp.I don't know how to set it up to work thank you.

Can't find the manual.

Outs to Ins. Only connect a turntable to a PHONO connnector.

MAIN OUT to the unidentified amp's IN.

Don't slave too much power-hungry gear off the convenience outlets of the preamp.

Aloha, bro.

Hey, your problem to solve this issue, is real easy. Don,t even touch the air conditioner, as you don,t want to risk and mistakes or damage.

Here is what you do, make sure power is off to the outlet. Best way is go to breaker panel and turn off all power, to test to make sure outlet is dead with plugging in something you know that works, radio, or lamp or screw gun, you know.

Then take off plate of out let, properly is a standard screw driver or Phillips. The outlet it self normally will have two screw , one top and one bottom. Undo those, pull out out let, then most outlets will have set screw to hold in wire or a push in type with a little like tap. You will see when you open it, but pretty easy to figure out as its simple. take pull out the wires from the out let. Normally will be a black and white( if you have two outlets, will be green wire normally for ground, But should have two white wire and two black wire. Get yourself two **** connectors. Take the two white wires , put together (twist) so you can **** connector on it. So same with both black wires. Put everything back( make sure **** connectors are good and tight, and no exposed wires outside of **** connectors. Put plate back on. Now what this does, is only makes that outlet dead, but allows power to continue on same circuit that other outlets might be sharing. More than likely they wont get inventive and run a extension cord to it from another outlet, especially if you tell them out let is burnt out from air conditioning problem, and don't want fire to happen. Oh, when your all done with outlet, make sure you turn main power on. I hope this helps you, Mahalo bro. Mike

If you plug it into the original outlet under the sink and flip the switch, nothing happens? No motor sound? And when you plug it into a different outlet, you can hear the motor, but the blades don't turn?
If this is the situation, I would guess that there's a problem with the insinkerator. Something stuck in it, or it's otherwise jammed. This could have tripped a breaker.
If the breaker failed or the circuit wasn't wired properly, this jammed condition could also have resulted in the wire at the switch or under-sink receptacle burning off of the terminals.
Turn off the circuit at the panel, double check that it's off, and remove the switch and the receptacle to see if the wires are still connected. If they've burned off, do not re-connect them. You should consult a licensed electrician to correct a hazardous situation.

There is a significant high pitch running through my speakers. I checked speaker wires, & plugged in power cord into a different outlet. Still no luck. Any suggestions?

Disconnect the input(s) and see if it hums in the absence of an audio source. A bad audio cable shield or unwisely-routed audio cables will allow entrance of unwanted signals from external power sources, magnetic fields, even dimmer-controlled track lights. Sometimes, simply reversing the orientation of the ac power plug can eliminate humming.

As far as I know no one makes an AC outlet power dimmer because it is unsafe and you do not know what someone may plug into that thing if it were available, which could be a fire hazard and the reason it is not made in the first place.

But to answer your question, yes it is possible to use a dimmer on halogen lamps, and in fact they last longer when dimmed slightly.
