How to get an EQ to work on a JVC RX-618V

I have a JVC RX-618V that is working but I can't get the EQ to come through the receiver. Turning it on and off has no effect. I've hooked it up properly. On most receivers you can turn it on through the receiver (I. E. VCR2/ EQ) or some other method. Short of hooking up devices directly through the EQ itself; is there some way to make the equalized sound go through the receiver? There has to be a way to do this.

The JVC RX-884VBK is a great machine, I had it for over 5 years and had no problem at all. I came across the (NO SOUND at all) and I believe it is an easy fix. Check the Front left, there are 2 keys marked 1 and 2 for SPEAKERS output, sometimes you don't notice that you connected the speakers to 1 and the 2 key is pressed. You could have both keys pressed and you will get the sound. I hope that helps.

yes, you must use the setup menu and assign the optical input to the input you are using. Some receivers have a "input mode" switch. If this one does, you only ned to press it until it says "optical". If you have a owners manual, it will decribe all the settings that need to be made to accomplish what you need.

If you do not have one, I have uploaded one to my website for you do have. It will only be there for a limited time before I remove it, so get it quickly. You need Adobe Reader to read this, so if you don't already have iton your computer you can download it free here:

Here is the link to the owners manual:

I would appreciate a "FixYa!" rating for this free information and manual. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

The display is back-illuminated by small incandescent bulbs. Burnt out bulbs equal no display, although the chances of several bulbs failing at once is not high so the power supply for the display/bulb assembly is a good place from which to start fault finding.

It needs a repair shop - as a user there's nothing you can simply dig into to fix.

Yamaha eq 32

The RX-150 does not have preamp out and power amp in connections. However, if you wish you can take the line level signal from tape OUT (assume it has one) and feed that into your Yamaha EQ. The OUT from the Yamaha can then be fed into an independent stereo power amplifier and then to your speakers. You would then be using your RX-150 only as a pre-amp. Alternatively, (professionals only) and I have done this several times, you can identify the output of the preamp stage inside the amp and bring this to a pair of RCA connectors cut into the back panel. Similarly, find the inputs to the power amps and do the same. For normal operation, bridge these. Otherwise, use these connection points to insert your EQ. This process, of course, requires that you are proficient at working with high voltage electronic devices. If you are not, take it to a professional who should be able to do this for very little cost. JVC, of course, would not consider this to be an acceptable modification. As always, take extreme care and never attempt anything you are not qualified to do, especially when it comes to electricity.
Cheers, Don.

My left channel in my JVC RX-305 isn't working...what do I do to fix it? When I either push the volume up or down it makes a clicking sound. It was working just fine last night. My right channel is...

Try swapping the speakers or just check the left connections WITH POWER OFF. Disconnect the left speaker completely and see if the clicking stops.

check to see if the radio is clear. If it is it may be the signal going into the amplifier. if it is muffled as well, depending if you have an Equalizer hooked to the unit. This also could cause the problem. Finally check the bass, treble balance and volume knob but turn them back and forth while unit is on and see if signal clears up momentarily. if this is the case the control knobs need to be cleaned. Also spin the connection jacks {RCAs} in the rear and see if this clears it up. If not you may have to have the unit serviced by a professional.
