Question about JVC RX-7030V Receiver

2 Answers

Won't power up.

When I turn the audio receiver on, if does nothing for about 15 seconds, then switches back to standby mode. The manual listed this problem, but says to consult the dealer about it.

Manual:
The standby lamp lights up after turning the power on, and soon the receiver turns off again (into standby mode).
The receiver is overloaded because of a high voltage.
I wont the know if this is easily fixed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and I did try all of them. I guess it falls under the category of a bad receiver, I disconnected everything and plugged up only the power in a different room and it still did not power up. If you have any other sugestions let me know, the estimate I got for repairs of this nature was around $170 and I would consider buying a new receiver instead. Thanks for your help!

Although this could be a problem with the unit that will require repair, you can check some things to see if it's an easy do-it-yourself fix.

It might be caused by a short on one of the speakers (most likely) or one of the components (less likely) or be due to a problem with the power from your house (remote).

First, while the receiver is off I would inspect the wires to all speakers to make sure there is no fraying or no strands are touching each other and causing a short.

If this looks ok, you should probably disconnect everything, insure the volume is set to low and then try powering on to see if it will stay on. If it still powers off, you can check the mains (power surce) as a last resort (move it into another room where you are sure the wall plug is on another circuit and try plugging it in there). If that still fails you have a bad receiver.

If the power stays on with nothing connected, shut it off and reconnect the two front speakers first. Try it again. Then add in components one by one and then speakers. Make sure you aren't connecting things while the unit is powered on and try it each time you connect something new. In this way you'll identify the offending component.

I know it's a hassle, but it may save you from having to spend some money repairing or replacing the unit.

Good luck.

It may be doing a "self check". Make sure no one crossed any output / speaker wires while moving speakers to clean, etc.

All of a sudden stopped working and won't turn back on. been 12hrs. when power is pressed, it turns on for 2 seconds and then standby lights blink again and it turns off


This could be caused by a direct short circuit on the speaker outputs. Try disconnecting all the speaker connections at the back of the receiver and then power back on. You can also try a factory reset by holding the surround mode + clear button for 3 seconds.

Denon DRA-37 Receiver-Remote lock on. Need to unlock.


Refer to the "Initialization of the Microprocessor" section of the manual (page 16 of the PDF version of the manual).
1) Turn the unit OFF using the On/Off switch (not the standby switch).
2) Depress both the Speaker A and B switches, and turn the Power ON.
3) The entire display should flash at 1-second intervals. The microprocessor should be reset, and the remote should be unlocked.

After turning ON the power/standby switch, the unit(receiver) display comes ON (green light) then after approx.4-5 seconds the display goes OFF and the unit defaults back to the standby mode (red light). I...


Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

What does it mean when that blinking green light turns to orange one in lp 350?


Hi
This would be "Standby"
When you press standby, the display and audio turn off and a blank screen is displayed for 15 minutes.
You can change the amount of time the projector stays in standby mode; see “Standby Time” on page 27 for details.
The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.
• If you press standby again within 15 minutes, the projector returns to normal operations immediately. The LED changes from orange to green.
• If you press standby again after 15 minutes, there is about a 60 second delay before the lamp turns back on. The LED flashes green while the lamp is re-lighting.
• If you don’t press standby again, the lamp turns off after 15 minutes. The LED lights orange while the projector is in standby.

Yamaha RX-V595A tuns off automatically


This was happening to mine also, all of a sudden. This solution came from the owners manual. Sure enough, the impedance selector was stuck in the middle , between 4 and 8 ohms....I also, made sure the speaker wires were not touching each other at the splice. Problem fixed.
B




The unit fails to turn on when 
STANDBY/ON is pressed, or set in 
the standby mode suddenly soon 
after the power has been turned on. 
The power cord is not plugged in or the 
plug is not completely inserted. 
The IMPEDANCE SELECTOR switch 
on the rear panel is not fully set to the 
upper or lower end. 
Firmly plug in the power cord. 
Set the switch fully to the upper or 
lower end when the unit is in the 
standby mode.
