Re: Cannot TV to play throught JVC TH-C50

I have a jvc th-c60 and only recently started using the system for surround on my tv.

in addition to the surround system, i have a conventional vcr/dvd player. i mention this because i have my cable line routed through the vcr/dvd player - all other connections (audio in/out, etc.) are directly from back of tv to surround unit console. assuming all connections are correct, set the jvc unit to show "VCR" on the unit display AND set your surround option to "All surround". The "all surround" may not the exact term, and not sure what your unit has the same notations, but you should be able to cycle through the surround options and determine when you have sound coming from all speakers. also, on my th-c60 unit, the unit display denotes which speakers are producing sound (or should be producing sound).

and, yes, the college football games sound awesome in surround mode.

How can I get sound from cable tv to come out jvc th-c50

You need to a cable connection from your TV to either:
  • the AUX (in) connectors at the back of the main unit. This is usually done with a simple RCA-cable, assuming that your TV has analog audio output.
  • To the main units optical (digital) input through an optical cable, assuming that your TV has a similar output.
Good luck!

Not getting any power to the DVD player at all. JVC DVD digital theater system th-c50.

Probably a blown fuse. If you have a warranty or can return it do that, if not unplug it, open it up and there should be a 250 volt glass type fuse. pull it out and make sure it is blown. If it is replace it at radio shack. If it isnt check for loose wires around the power cable and the transformer.

No color picture

Have you looked at the menu to see if it is an international system? If you have more picture posibilities than NTSC you may need to make that selection. Terry
