  • Anonymous May 28, 2008

    Have exactly the same problem. Anyone have any answers?

  • Greenjacket May 28, 2008

    Seems to be an inherent problem. Mine does exactly the same. Anyone have any idea of how to solve it.

    I have the same problem - I replaced one of the (blown) glass fuses and it powered up, made a brief buzzing sound and has died again.

    Any ideas?

1: In most cases there are two FET`s gone you can use a normal IRF 530 but cut the heat sink from the FET do it with a pincer not with a grinding machine! (static electricity!). Before you switch on the set pay attention for the following parts!
2: The two coils that are mounted under the metal housing on the main board look of they have a other color if so they are burnt Check also the SMD parts under the main PCB.
3: The two SMD Elco`s that are mounted on the little PCB they have in most cases a high ESR. The value must be under 1 I thing that all the troubles you can have with this set are coming from this two elco`s (100uF 16 volt.)
4: look for a short cut on this little PCB pay attention to the two SMD gates. Measure the S/C over the +5 and +12 volt lines and check both PCB visual.
5: You must bring in a lot of heat to remove the both IRF`s use a good flux and do not fear the heat they can have it.
Because you must use a big Iron there is the danger to damage this aluminum layer check visual after you have solder the two FET`s all the connection with the smaller parts measure them with a Ohm meter. This was the fault in mine case there was a open connection to one of the gates of the FET`s

There are 4 small glass fuses. One of mine has burnt out.
By removing the main cover they are easy to locate. Let you know if it rectifies the problem.

From experience, a protection circuit has cut in, most likely due to a short in one of the DC output voltage rails on the PSU, thus giving the result of red standby LED, then green, then back to red. If the standby LED is not flashing/blinking, chances are you won't see any error codes.
This unit consists of several surface-mounted components, transistors, diodes, capacitors and resistors (many of which are miniature and often glued to the PCB) - this could become very costly, just in replacing modules as opposed to individual parts and spending hours fault-tracing looking for the problem which could cost a lot more in terms of labour.

I would recommend that you get a second opinion - take it to a service centre, obtain a quote for the estimated cost of repair (and fault diagnosis at the same time) - then you can make a decision after that.

It's up to you but before spending ANY money on it, throwing it out, or selling it somewhere as is, or whatever, get that second opinion from an authorized service workshop first. See how you go. *Nothing is impossible to fix, some things are complex.*

I have a jvc RX-550V receiver and when i plug it in the standby red light turns on but the display does not

The display is back-illuminated by small incandescent bulbs. Burnt out bulbs equal no display, although the chances of several bulbs failing at once is not high so the power supply for the display/bulb assembly is a good place from which to start fault finding.

It needs a repair shop - as a user there's nothing you can simply dig into to fix.

No Sound

when the amp is turned on does the unit make a clicking sound a few seconds after the display lights up.

if not the amp's is not happy with it's power or could have a speaker short. Check the display for a fault warning.

Otherwise check you speaker connections.
confirm that and A and B main speaker buttons are correct.

Try some headphones, if you get sound out of the headphone things might not be too bad, if nothing is output remove all your cables and try again.

Yes I know that can be nasty, so label all the cables first.

The JVC RX-884VBK is a great machine, I had it for over 5 years and had no problem at all. I came across the (NO SOUND at all) and I believe it is an easy fix. Check the Front left, there are 2 keys marked 1 and 2 for SPEAKERS output, sometimes you don't notice that you connected the speakers to 1 and the 2 key is pressed. You could have both keys pressed and you will get the sound. I hope that helps.

Very noisy power transformer

most transformers are bolted but some are just screwed you could probably check to see if teghtening is needed.
