Re: cannot get any input or out put from the receiver.

Sounds like the radio cable ain't full connected or maybe just not connected to right place. sometimes one wire gone wrong messes up everything. did you get a install kit for your cd player might be a good idea

JVC RX 515 receiver

The fault is on the tuner section of the receiver. FM radio signals are processed by one IC in the tuner section. Since you can hear the station, it won't be that one. The only other is the Stereo Decoder. The radio signals are passed to this and that splits the signal into the left and right channels. If you can't here one of the channels then the Decoder IC will have failed. If you are lucky the board will label the IC, otherwise find the tuner section (look for coils). Then read the numbers of the IC's. If there are several enter each number into Google and find what it does. If you find one that says "decoder" or "FM multiplex" that is the one you need to replace.

It says "Source Direct" and

I think that your receiver might be set to the wrong input. Try to change the input to "tuner" and you should be able to hear the FM radio. To change the input, all you need to do is press the button labled either source or input

Can not get certain radio stations, when you turn yes

Hello, your solution is to simply upgrade the antenna. this is especially true if you are using the wire loop antenna that came with your unit.

Do a search for "Terk FM antenna" on ebay or amazon. They range anywhere from $20 to $100 depending on how strong you need it to be.

You can also check out radio shack or see what your local wal-ly world (walmart) has just remember you want an AMPLIFIED antenna

Hope that helps

Radio tuner quit

There are many reasons for this to occur dependent upon the model of the unit. Repairs can cost anywhere from $10-$50 for parts. Can you update this with the model number so we can provide potential repair options?

My Sony XMGTR2022 goes into protect mode at

I discovered that there is a compatiblilty problem between the Bose receiver and the Sony amplifier. If I disconnect the receiver from the amp then the amp starts up normally. Apparently the receiver sends out a dc offset or a "thump" that the amplifier doesn't like and goes into protection mode. I solved the problem by putting a 1 second delay circuit between the receiver startup and the amplifier startup. A simple RC delay on the remote input to the amplifier solved the problem.

I have a 6 CD Changer but dont know how to use it?

This is an older way that makers of CD changers used to get CDs into cars that didn't have them.  This is what they tried to get people to by them.  I was never a fan of this system as the sound quality was never better than listening to FM radio.  There is a unit in the car, usually under the dash behind the glove box, that the CD changer is plugged into.  This unit has the FM antenna from the car plugged into it, and then a cable that is the same as that coming from the antenna going from the unit under the dash plugged into the FM antenna jack of the radio in the dash.  All this unit does is take the digital, high quality sound from the CDs, transmit it on an FM frequency (usually low on the FM band 80s, 90s or low 100s) and then you tune the radio into that FM frequency to get the sound form the CDs.  Problem is, the sound quality was only as good as FM radio.  A pretty poor way of getting CDs into cars.  But they sold millions of these things.  If it isn't working, the wiring may have come loose, the fuse to the unit under the dash might be blown, or something is disconnected.  if you go all through the FM dial, 0.1 at a time and don't hear it, it is time to get under the dash near the glove box and poke around.  Good luck.  If it were me, I would take all this gear out and put a new CD/MP3 player where the factory radio currently sits.

Radio channel coming through on cd zone

Sounds like an internal prob within the reciever, since recievers have radio tuners in em, maybe a prob in the input switching in it. I assume you are running unbalanced rca cables out of the dvd player into the reciever as it probably doesn't have balanced input capability, unbalanced lines are susceptible to R.F.I. ( radio frequency interference ) but I doubt if that's the problem here unless maybe you are running very long cable lengths from the dvd player to the reciever. Try using a different input and see if the problems still there, can use any input other than phonograph really as they are all line level inputs.

I receive a radio channel in one of the outputs of the preamp

I would use sheilded wire on the mic with the least amount of cable. You can relocate the pre amp with aluminum foil wrapped around the pre amp. also turn the gain on the mic down as to eliminate any interference from your strong radio station nearby. Randy
