Nop, you have to check the correct air flow from down to top with nothing interfering the top at least 4 inch between amp and next thing up the amp, take away of near heat sources in every possible way, hope this helps, also check the speaker impedance to match with amplifier...this last part is a great source of heat, believe me...speakers should be 8Ohm, and anything less will put the amp under stressful situation generating lots of heat...

I have a JVC ax 220 amplifier and there is no sound coming out at all.


Is the receiver even turning on? If it is, listening carefully to the top cover, with the room quiet. Do you hear 1 click, or two?

If you're interested in having your JVC repaired, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

GE dryer very hot on top--hasn't been used


Often times the element has broken (burned out) and is now touching the element housing causing it to heat up and stay on even though the dryer is not even running.

Why does my jvc house amp gets so hot ,I can't even touch the top ,it actualy burns me, is this normal?


Yugen,
All amps get hot. It is their nature. However, IF you have clearance around it of at least two inches so it can dissipate its own heat it should be very touchable. Otherwise its running hot and though it may be working now, your prone to premature failure. Got to a electronics store and get a small cooling fan for it!

When my car is not on the three blue lights on top of the amp are still on, but the power light on the side of the amp is not. Is it normal for the three lights on top to stay on all the time?


No it is not normal.. Normaly when lights stay on the problem is a constantly hot remote wire, but in your case you say the main power light is off.. Soo one can only assume the the problem is in the LED board it's self. This can happen when an amplifier is over heated, or has a poor soldering job. Now if you can hear white noise comming from your speakers with those lights on, then you have a simialr, but more serious issue. If it is just the lights, and not a powered up amplifier I would just let it go.. LED's draw very little power, and can't hurt anything. If the AMP is actualy staying on, I would get it repaired..

Running Hot


Running the amplifier at a low level shouldn't cause it to get hot quickly.

Disconnect all speakers and signal cables from the amp and power it up. Do this when the heatsink (black part at the back of the amp) is cool. Power it up and monitor the temperature of the sink. If it gets hot in one relatively small area, that will tell you that there is likely a problem with one channel. If it never gets hot, the problem may be with the input signal or the speaker wiring.

Let me know what you find.

Amp is getting hot


amp naturally get hot but not hot enough to burn your finger.if all the speakers working,no distorted sound(sound clear),the problem might be the ventilation(free air flow) of amp.check the blower fan if working or check the exhaust holes maybe it is blocked. here are the other reasons; 1.)speaker wires touched the chassis ground. 2.)mismatched speaker to amp impedance. 3)overdrive input or u tap low input(from amp) to high output(of stereo) 4.)ur amp is out of bias. u need an audio technician for this... hope this help u...
