Question about JVC RX-7030V Receiver
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.
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.
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.

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