    ok..that sounds good.. I got to thinking..and I dont know that I explained it correctly..there are time when I have the TV on and turn the volume up...and it stays the same..You can turn it up all the way to as high as it will go..and volume dont change..both speakers work can hear sound coming from there a AMP or something that might cause the volume to sometimes go up and down..and other times not..could the solder joints cause that as well

You seem to have bad solder joints.
If you are handy with a soldering iron you can take off the back cover and knock around the circuit(using something non conductive , i.e a wooden salad spoon) to locate the area of the problem.
Start by following the speakers wires to the connector(s) on the circuit board and the audio output i.c should be near by and mounted on a heathsink, thats the general area where you might find bad solders, you may have to do a bunch of them before you get to it as they are not allways apparent.
Hope this will help good luck

    Hi again

    To answer your question ; yes and it does sounds like the problem is around the audio output i.c.

    The volume is controlled by varying the voltage at one of the terminal of the audio out, so a bad connection would cause that voltage to vary.

Can I connect a 3.5mm audio cable from my TV to this JVC RX705V receiver?

So if you're trying to amplify the sound coming out of your TV to an amplifier you need to connect the output on the back of your TV on the receiver to the end audio input on the back of your receiver you might need different types of connections on each end but as long as you take the output on the TV and input it into your receiver your receiver will amplify the sound another way you could do it is to go inside the TV and connect two wires off of each of the two wires of each speaker leaving the internal speakers connected and then plug them in to the audio inputs on your receiver also if you're using one of the audio outputs on TV make sure you go into the menu and tell it you're using external speakers Good Luck Chuck

I have a JVC RX-7010V AUDIO/VIDEO CONTROL RECEIVER. And I can not get it to hook up to my TV for surround sound I have to hook it up through my headphone jack on my TV.

On the back of the JVC receiver, there should be a TV input, Coax IN and OUT or AUX input (I don't remember if this model had HDMI). On the back of your TV, there should be an AUDIO OUT, connect this to either the TV or AUX inputs and make sure on your TV, to set the Audio Out is On in the TV menu. Turn on JVC and set input to TV and adjust volume. Another way is using the COAX input and outputs. Connect Output of cable box to Input of JVC, then connect Output of TV to Input on TV.

No optical output except when using ipod dock on tv

Unfortunately, there is a limitation on the JVC LT47P789 digital optical audio out. This audio output does not get the signal from any HDMI source. This is described on page 49 of the user manual. The manual is available from JVC here: . There is a similar restriction for the analog audio output from the TV with the HDMI inputs.

If you use the component audio/video inputs on the TV from your set-top cable box and DVD player, then the optical audio output will work. Otherwise, you need to find a way to connect the audio directly to the receiver. Some receivers have multiple HDMI input ports. These then forward the video signal on their HDMI output to the TV. Another option is to connect the analog audio outputs from the cable box and DVD player to the receiver. This may require resetting the Audio output from these set-top boxes to keep from sending the audio over the HDMI cable. With the Cinemate, you might need some sort of audio input switch or an HDMI converter and switch that separates the audio from the video signal.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your devices for ideas on how to work-around the problem with this JVC TV.

You could of course have a audio circuit problem with the set but there are some things to look at first.

1. does set have sound when a DVD etc is connected via a rear audio/video input? This will narrow things down somewhat.

2. are the speakers in the audio menu turned ON or OFF?

3. are you using a cable or sat box or a receiver in line for signal?
If so unplug each for a while and plug back to allow them to try to reboot.

Most of the JVC sets that are LCD the entire audio circuit is on the main board--one of the most expensive boards in the set.

I would like to use my jvc home theater while watching tv. But i have no idea how or what wires to use to make this work.

You will need a 2RCA to 2RCA audio cable as shown below. Connect the audio out socket of your TV to the Aux or TV/SAT input of the JVC. When you want to hear the TV sound through the JVC system just select the appropriate input on the JVC. If you want the surround speakers to work, select ProLogic or All channel stereo on the JVC's surround settings.Because by default the radio or TV sound is only stereo, so only the front left and right speakers will work. PLII will convert 2 channel to 5.1.

Cannot get home theatre to work with panasonic flat screen. Surround sound was working with old tv got a new one but now its not working. Do i need a different cable

your new tv probalby has an hdmi output. depeding on how old your jvc system is, iit may or may not have an hdmi input. not to worry, there should be some type of compatible output on the tv to send audio signal to the jvc. first look at the back of the jvc and see whats there. then look at the tv and you should see compatible output on tv and run proper cable to input on jvc. some auxillary audio outputs on the tv are driven by the volume of the tv itself, so make sure to turn the volume on the tv up a llittle to make sure its sending signal. you may have to go into the tv menu and turn the internal tv speakers off so you dont hear them and the jvc. its not a big deal if your hearing both, it just wont be true surrond sound. if it were mine, id turn the tv speakers off.

No sound coming from JVC Theater System when watching regular TV

  1. I am assuming that it has audio when using other inputs or tuner.
  2. Check that the TV inputs work by attaching a different input devise (cd player, Tape deck or vcr audio out) to the TV input.
  3. If you get audio the problem is with the TV audio out check that connection.
  4. Check the audio setting on the TV you may need to switch from internal speaker to external or from variable to fixed.
Good luck

I just bought a JVC THD50 surround sound system. I want to hook up the system to my television and cable so when I watch cable I can hear the surround sound. I bought a digital optical audio cable and...

See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.

From Set top box:
  1. Audio: optical or digital coax cable output --> jvc system Input
  2. Video: hdmi output--> jvc system input
From JVC System:
  1. Video: HDMI output---> TV HDMI input
  1. only accepting HDMI input from JVC System.
This will provide you will sound from your jvc system at all times. Your JVC system is made to be used as a hub. So essentially what you are trying to do is connect all components into the JVC system. Then only connect the video portion to your TV. The TV itself should NOT be emitting sound.

Note: You may need to turn off the speakers in the TV setup menu to acheive no sound from the TV. This will make for the ultimate experience.
