Re: jvc th-c5 dvd theater system

Probably have a bad center unit to subwoofer cable. Sometimes the pins inside the cable bend or break. I paid 33.00 for a new one on the JVC website.

I have a jvc seteup but reciever is there a way i can get a adapter to plug sub woofer with power amp into a a yamaha reciever?the plug that goes from sub woofer also powers other speakers, cable...

Here's a manual.

That cable not only carries audio but it also powers the sub and other channel amplifers. Even if we could supply the pin-outs for the channels I'm not sure what we could do to provide subwoofer power. We're talking about a major rework.

This is a highly proprietary design, meaning it's really not very adaptable to normal spec audio equipment.

There's a flat-fee repair service for the receiver ($99.95, free return shipping):

Maybe they could fix your receiver.

You COULD try to reach the manufacturer for other options.

Page 42:

No sound. The system cord and/or speaker cord is not connected. Check the connection.

The audio cord is not connected to AUDIO IN (VCR)

and/or DIGITAL IN (DBS) correctly.

Connect the cord correctly. (A pg. 13)

An incorrect source has been selected. Select the correct source. (Apg. 17)

The decode mode is not set correctly. Select the proper decode mode. (A pg. 35)

Do you think the powered subwoofer itself might have a power problem? Check its cord.

Problem with surround sound on JVC Th-C5 sound system

Not sure how you're hooked up or what model TV you're using. If you mean the TV sound through RCA cables is the source and you're wondering why it's not surround. Well, it's not multichannel. Please fill in some details.

Isn't this just a mono RCA cable? Same as a standard audio cable? I use half of a car audio patch cable because they come very long.

I just replaced the cord running from the sub to the dvd player. now my sub will not turn on

steps to trouble shoot for sub-woofer detection :
1. please check whether the cord is securely connected at both the ends.
2. check if there is transmission through the cord (there'll be a small static through the cord if there is transmission.)
3. reset the dvd-player to default audio-output and then choose the 5.1 sound system which is the correct setting for the th-c6.
4. also check the settings in the th-c6 whether it is in 5.1 mode(whether it includes the woofer-as it can also simple use the stereo speakers)
5. now check the sound output in all speakers by playing any original home-theatre system enabled dvd.

the system will work perfectly if the cord is in good condition, otherwise please replace the cord again, and this time check it at the store.

To unlock the JVC TH-C5 disc tray is by having the system off and at the same time hold the stop button and eject button until it says, "Unlocked".
