Re: my jvc rx-6010v is OVERLOADING?

You've overdriven the amp too many times and most likely blew an output amp or two.
It will need service or replacement

Re: my jvc rx-6010v is OVERLOADING?

The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (JVC - and others - say SIX ohms, but 8 is the "standard" you should use.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: The internal overload protection system you mention is designed to help prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized JVC service center must do this. Note, though, that if you have attempted to "cheat" the system several times, damage CAN be done that requires servicing.] But, before you take the unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

I have this JVC RX-6010V Receiver, how can I connect my microphone to the unit?

Get a microphone (with a) preamp and follow ITS instructions. It only accepts RCA Line Level analog signals.

My reciever plays then cuts out

They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?

Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.

Is "overload" being displayed?

“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.

Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.

1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.

Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.

If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.

Can i plug in my i-pod and listen to it?

All you need is either a dock, which will keep the I-Pod powered up, or a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono leads, which will also be needed for the dock, this plugs into your headphone socket of your I-Pod and the two RCA's into an aux socket on the JVC. You can then listen to it in Dolby Pro-Logic. You won't be able to listen in Dolby Digital, unless the I-Pod has Dolby Digital output, which will require a different lead.
Of course the sound source (music) would have to be recorded with Dolby Surround, to get the full benefit, but many are, they just don't say in the imformation given.

My JVC receiver won't play my left front speaker. The right one seems to work fine but when I plug in the left it is virtually silent. i too have had a few "overload" incidents and am running two JBL 8...

swap the wires around to see if the right speaker will give sound on the left channel. If it does, the it's a blown left speaker. If you don't get sound out the right one either, then the left channel ouput has a bad capacitor somewhere in it.

Rx-v563 backround music much louder than people when watching tv

I would check your center speaker wiring and setting. Then switch to a different audio setting (pro logic, theater...)

thats to stop you blowing your speakers. you can make your volume louder via the equaliser/surround settings, but you will still not be aloud past the number 15 without it cutting out.
its an EU setting thats on most mp3 players too, so that people wont listen to music too loud, "nanny state".

hope this helps
