Question about JVC TH-M505 System

JVC subwoofer blown..........

I just found out my subwoofer is not working, BUT my DVD changer and speakers are all working. I found a JVC subwoofer that works, can I use that one instead of trying to find the EXACT subwoofer for my actual system? Does it matter what subwoofer that you use? Thanks.

What system are you using it with, how do you have it connected, when you say the system does not work as a result, does it mean that the system does not power up, or no sound?

SOURCE: Setting Up Surround Sound with satellite tv digital tuner

What model do you have?

You should be able to plug the audio/video output from the satellite TV system into the audio/video input on the JVC system. Then set the JVC system to the appropriate input.

I need to know the exact model to know how or if this is even possible. Some JVC models don't let you input any additional devices. Others might not have the inputs that are necessary for surround.

It is possible that a fuse has blown in the sub-woofer box. This unit has the entire amplifier built right into the sub-woofer. It also has a number of fuses in it. I have found that over the years fixing these units that if a fuse is blown you will also have more serious problems in the amp circuit. That is usually why the fuse will blow. They sometimes even have a problem in the main head unit with a digital transistor that is a surface mounted transistor that will cause this problem also. This transistor is part of the turn on circuit that signals the sub-woofer to turn on when the head unit is turned on. None of these problems are an easy fix I am sorry to say.

If you have at least a little experience with electronics and the right tools, like a multimeter and soldering equipment, I may be able to help you figure out the problem. But be aware that these are not easy to fix, and you may spend lots of time trying to figure it out just to find out that you will still need to take it in to a service center and in many cases when somebody tries to fix these type of units and have no experience with them they often cause more problems than they have started with.

For starters you can at least check the fuses, but please be sure to unplug the entire unit from the wall outlet before doing anything, there is a big risk of electrical shock.

The bottom of the sub-woofer has 6 screws in it (If I remember right) and those 6 screws must come out, they are rather big and you must use a number 2 phillips head screwdriver. Then after that you must take out all the screws from around the edges of the black metal panel where the speakers plug in to. When those are all out you can pull the amplifier unit right out of the sub-woofer box. Be careful when you pull it out, you will need to unplug a set of wires to get it all the way out, maybe two sets of wires, I am going off of just my memory right now, but if you need more help I will look up the service manual to help you more.

You will find at least one fuse right near the board where the A/C plug goes to and then you will find a few more fuses on the board that is on the right side while looking at the amp block from the same position you pull it out from and this board is plugged into the bottom board and is vertical but the short side is up and down, the long side is going towards the back of the amp and it is running along the metal chassis on that right side.

I hope this helps you, if you need more help just post your questions here.

I have the sub woofer and two sp-thc5f front speakers. Can I hook this subwoofer directly to my JVC 56 high def big screen or do I need a dedicated amplifier that works this sub wooofer?


No, the powered subwoofer gets its signal AND power through the DIN connector so you'd have to second guess JVC engineers on which pins are power or signal; and what voltage level it supplies and then you'd have to come up with a source for the power. Managing the volume and relative levels would be a trick, too. Devastation lies down that path.

Get the prescribed JVC electronics or go with a whole new sound solution.

Do you think the powered subwoofer itself might have a power problem? Check its cord.

Hello
this could be a power fault, but first check the power plug if it is in contact with the power socket and if it is then you have to open the back cover of the system to check the fuses if blown resistor,capacitor and transistor with the use of a multimeter to check for back component and if bad replace faulty ones.
Then power on to confirm, if not on then take it to the manufacturer or a skilled personnel to handle it

My jvc hx-d7 radio is turned on in 2 seconds it shuts down to protect mode how do i take protect off ?


You can't. The main amplifier module will probably have a channel blown. The unit is detecting this and tripping into protect mode to stop further damage occurring. Needs to go to a repair place. sorry. ps If you get sound briefly before it trips off then it may just be a speaker wire shorting out! worth checking

Speaker wire for subwoofer


Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.

Cant get jvc car stereo to work a sony cd changer


Does your sony cd changer have a separate controller and rf modulator interface? It's a wire from the cd changer with a little box close to the end and an antenna plug at the tip? If you do just plug it into the back of your radio where the antenna goes in, then plug the car antenna jack into the other side of the little box and turn your radio to the marked setting on the box. IF NOT , you can not interface the din plug from a sony into a jvc radio because the sony radio that has a md controller built in will control all of the functions of the matching cd change.
I hope this helps...
