Question about JVC Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I bought a JVC receiver Model No Rx6040B, about 6 years ago. I no longer get sound. I keep it in an enclosed cabinet. Can heat buildup cook the wires?

    I have checked all those things, and the unit does stay on, just no sound

    Approximately how much would this run, do not want to pay more than a new one, considering the age of the unit

AV Receivers has inbuilt safety system that can sense heat and over current etc to protect the unit.
Does your receiver turns ON and remains ON? if yes then check connecting cables, speaker wires etc.
buildup heat in receiver if its in enclosed cabinet can not cook wires but can damage output amplifier parts like transistors etc and if that is happened, receiver wont stay power On and will shut down immediately.
Hope above info will help you to sort out problem.
Thanks.

    OK, it sounds input selector chip is not working / not selecting and need to be replaced. Qualified local tech can replace it.

Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK


There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

Yamaha RX-V660 Receiver No lcd(?) display


Yes, this receiver is a good one. Alot of gear from a few years ago will still outperform new gear. And why change something if it can be repaired. It most probably has a blown backlamp to the lcd display...some models so easy to change that they just plug in!!. This is quite common and easily fixed. Heat kills electronics. If you wish to keep the old girl going i suggest trying to increase the ventilation. even by getting it into the coolest place in the cabinet. The top of the rack of gear is always best for your amp to get rid of the heat. and try to put some extra height(with say a 2 sticks of wood) under the feet both under the amp and any bits of gear that may sit on top while taking care to to block the ventilation holes. if the amp uses a rotary function selector switch it may have dirty contacts that are causing your crackling problems. A spray internally to the switches contacts with CRC 2-26 will sort that.

Our microwave, a (built in cabinet with venting), will tend to shut itself down if we cook something longer than, say, 8 minutes straight. No power, lights on panel out. Then a few minutes later i


Not enough venting. Imagine putting your hair dryer on full and putting it that cabinet. Would your venting keep it cool? Your microwave oven uses about the same current

Sounds like the electronics overheated. You'd have to pull it and examine the insides to see what has gone bad. It could be pretty much anything.

according to the reviews Ive read on this receiver, your right, they have a major heat problem in the output transistors,, the heat sink isn't large enough to keep them from going out or they aren't large enough to handle the power, people have even tried adding a computer fan to the area of the transistors with no good results

We keep having to "defrost" our refrigerator. It is five years old. A repairman came out and showed us how to take the inside back panel off of the refrigerator part and de-ice it. Why does ice keep...


A lack of refrigerant or a compressor problem might be the cause of freezer low efficiency but that is unlikely to blame for the buildup of ice in the refrigerator.

A certain amount of ice is normal and initially in the evolution of the fridge there was a need for routine deicing, typically just a few times each year. Later a heating element was included to ease the task of defrosting.
These days the heating element is now automatically switched on briefly every time the cooling cycle finishes and the resulting water drained into a cup mounted on the compressor. The heat from the compressor evaporates the water and the fridge remains frost-free.

I expect your fridge should be frost free and clearly the auto defrost is not working. This shouldn't be a great problem and if everything else was good it would just mean routine deicing like the early days. Clearly everything else is not good and the buildup of ice is much more than normal.

Assuming it isn't caused by an elementary mistake like placing hot food in the cabinet there are two main causes of excessive ice buildup - one is a defective door seal and the other is failing cabinet insulation, the latter marked by the compressor needing to run longer to maintain a low temperature and parts of the outside of the cabinet feeling "chilly".
