No Sound (just a whisper) from JVC PC55/JW

I love this vintage boombox but it has not been set up for a while andwhen I plug it in the sound is practically inaudible. Speakers arehooked up correctly, can't find anything else on controls that mightaffect the sound.
My son used to move the speakers around to various other systems - would they sound like this if they were blown?
Alsothe light is out in the LED readout window. Any suggestions orinformation on how I can get a repair manual? My husband is prettyhandy and might be able to fix it.
Thanks, Liz Barber

Make sure the PLAYBACK buton is prerssed in on the pre-amp!
I got mine for half price in a pawn shop in 88 because of this!

Try and clean the volume control. Take the amp off the deck, remove the screws retaining the front and the front should easily pull away from the unit. I cleaned mine with electrical contact cleaner and compressed air. Not likely a problem with the speakers. Can't help you with the display, but I did here years ago that the displays were known to fail. Watch for a used one on ebay or contact a JVC repair depot, maybe they have one around.

I have a JVC MX-GT80 there is a problem with it, it turns on just fine but does not give sound, plays cds and everything the only problem is no sound when this happened there was sound then i heard a pop...

It looks like you've either blown the speakers of the amplifier itself. What were you doing when you got the pop and the sound stopped? (Playing CD or from External Source and at what volume level?)

If there is no sound at all from the speakers, not even a crackle or buzz then it's more than likely you've blown the amplifier.

You could narrow the fault by trying these speakers on another unit or another set of speakers on this unit.

If you require further assistance then please ask.

Connect to TV

Check the user manual for the TV to make sure that the TV has the option to allow an external audio system to be connected. If applicable, then check that any necessary mode setting have been done in the TV set to allow an external audio system. Make sure that you are using compatible connectors between the TV and the sound system. Also, the sound system has to be compatible to the TV.

Cassette player will not work

common fault on the JVC tape decks is the belt stretch and then it does a clicking sound its trying to pick up the audio heads. changing the belt is quite hard if you have`nt done it before.
