checked resistance getting nothing
Nothing = zero or nothing = infinite?
If it is essentially zero, you are probably OK since the DC ohms of nearly any speaker measures very low resistance; they are rated in impedance which is a complex combination of  resistance (R), inductance (L), and a little capacitance (C) and becomes the 'Z' of the rating of (typically) 4-8 ohms.
If it is measuring open (a flashing display on any resistance range of a digital meter), then you probably have a problem.
You can safely take a single flashlight battery (or any 1.5 volt cell) and apply this by tapping across the input of your sub-woofer. If it makes a fairly loud 'click' then the speaker is functional.     If it passes the test, you have connection or output problems from your amplifier.

Sub woofer not turning on


Is it receiving power? If not that is your answer - could be a blown fuse, bad wire, bad connection, etc.

If power is there and it still does not work then the problem coud be with a bad sub woofer on/off switch, internal fuse, or worse, blown amp from over driving.

Sunfire true subwoofer signature one 7.5A internal fuse keeps burning out. what are possible causes and how to repair?


If you have an ohm meter (resistance) test for 7-8 ohms across each set of speaker leads to your sub woofer. Its likely you have blown speaker (load is causing amplifier to draw to much current) or just a bad amplifier in the sub (likely not worth $ repairing vs new). To test the sub woofer speaker itself you may have to take it apart to test its resistance.

YAMAHA AV receiver RX-V861 I have the message 'Vol-fix' appearing on Zone 2 and no sound. This was working fine until then


Setting the RX-V861 remote control to operate Zone 2:
  1. Using a ballpoint pen or similar object and press the [CODE SET] button RX-V861 remote control. The[TRANSMIT INDICATOR]on the remote should flash twice.
  2. Using the [NUMERICAL KEY PAD] on the remote and key in 9992, the [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] should flash.
Assigning the receivers internal amp for Zone 2:
  1. Set the remote control selector to [AMP]. (Located to the right of the volume buttons on the Remote.).
  2. Press the [SET MENU]button on the remote control.
  3. Arrow down to Manual Setup and press the Enter button on the remote control.
  4. Arrow to the [SOUND MENU] option and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  5. Arrow to Speaker Set and press the [ENTER] button on the remote control.
  6. Arrow to the EXTRA SP ASSIGN and select ZONE2
  7. Press the [RETURN] button on the remote control to exit out and return to the Manual Setup.
NOTES: There is an option for setting the Maximum Volume and Initial Volume in the Zone Set menu.
  • Max Volume: This is an optional feature but isrecommended to prevent the accidental change in volume levels thatcould damage the speakers and receiver.
  • Initial Volume: This is also a great feature that would seamlessly start the volume level for the second or third zone at the desired level.
We do not recommend using any Speaker Selector boxes to enable more than the recommended number of speakers per terminal.
Controlling Zone 2 using the RX-V861 remote control:
  1. If the Main Zone on the receiver is on, press the [POWER BUTTON]down and while holding that button down press the [PHONO]/[**] button on the remote. The [TRANSMIT INDICATOR] will light up.
  2. You will not be able to use the following buttons on the remote: (Pressing any other button will cause the remote to exit Zone 2 mode. [POWER], [STANDBY], [VOLUME], [MUTE] and the [INPUT SELECTOR] buttons [DVD], [CD], etc.)

Jvc th-m303 sub woofer not working all other speakers are fine


check your internal wires inside subwoofer.b4 that try to connect to other instrument to make sure it not working.

Either the amp for the sub is bad, or the sub woofer speaker is bad. If you checked the fuses, you must know how to get the amp out of the sub woofer box (screws in the bottom of box and around the metal plate of the box). Take it out again and check the wires that go to the sub woofer. It is the red and white wires if I remember correctly. They come from the box and plug into the amp board with a white plastic connector. Or you can check the wires right at the speaker. The cover for the speaker comes off with about 4 phillips screws and then take the speaker out with the screw driver as well.Use an ohm meter and check the ohms on the speaker at those wires after you dis-connect them from the board. That woofer should measure between 3 and 6 ohms to still be good. If it measures less than 3 ohms or more than 6 ohms, it is probably bad and will need to be replaced.

Here is the JVC part number for that woofer.

CR250006-01

Be prepared, the cost is ridiculous. $110.16 at JVC's service site.

Or you could just find one that fits properly and use it instead. They are not the best woofer around and are very over-priced.

I hope this helps, if so a FixYa! rating would be very much appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for offering free help to people like yourself.

You need to take apart tthe sub woofer and check the connection to bass speaker for continuity. It sounds like an internal broken connection to speaker on sub woofer unit.
