Question about JVC RX-1028V Receiver

1 Answer

No sound from receiver

I inherited a non-working receiver which powers up, tunes in FM stations, and looks completely operable, but no sound comes through the speakers or the headphone jack....almost like it is muted.

Any thoughts on where to start on this? I am seeking adventure here and not afraid to dive into the guts of this thing...i have nothing to lose and a receiver to gain if i can fix it. But i need some help getting started.

Thanks!
Nick,

As it is a receiver then it's probably something to do with the amp section. Either the pre-amp or the power amp. If you get no response at all by connecting a tape or cd player to it, then it's likely the pre-amp might have failed.

SOURCE: JVC RX-9010VBK receiver - premap section won't turn on normally

It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

SOURCE: I have virtually no FM receiption with my JVC RX 6000V Receiver

If you want to buy the antenna wire you could get one at radio shack that will plug into the spot you are talking about or as I used to do is put a small nail into the middle of the hole and wrap a wire, wire is 3 foot long longer the better, that is stripped around the nail, the wire only has to be stripped where it touches the nail, this is not the professional way to do this but it works the same, make sure not to push the small nail in to farand the nail fits the hole snug, Would recommend getting the one from radio shack but I have done it the way I said for ever and works fine. And you will have fm reception

I just bought a used jvc rx9010. it powers up but no sound from any speaker and shows headphone all the time what should a layperson check???


No speakers are selected if just headphone is displayed. Press the speaker button just under the power button. No station is tuned when auto muting is displayed. Hook up an antenna to the receiver or use a different source like a cd player.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

My Grundig Satellit 700 Radio is not working on FM Band but is working well on AM and Shortwave Band. After pressing ON/OFF button and FM/RDS-AF button when we try to operate the FM Band of this radio...


As a side note, most AM/FM radios use a separate antenna for each band, thus why you can pick up AM but not FM. Check your mast antenna connections to make sure they are solid and not missing or loose.

This has nothing to do with the speakers.

Page 38 of the manual describes tuner operation. FM hiss usually indicates a weak FM signal or it's not tuned precisely. If the "ST" indicator is blinking and you select Mono does it get any better?

A 75-ohm FM antenna oriented horizontally will help bring in a stronger signal (page 29 and 73).

Auto muting on when on am/fm and no sounds come out. everything else is fine.


That's normal.

The Auto Muting mode mutes the audio output of the tuner if the station is not sufficciently strong to be accurately tuned. Otherwise you would hear all that interstation hash noise.

Press the FM Mode button to change it to Mono if you want to manually tune a hard-to-reach station. It will be in Mono.

Page 26:

AUTO MUTING
Normally select this.
When a program is broadcast in stereo, you will hear stereo sound; when in monaural, you will hear monaural sound.
This mode is also useful to suppress static noise between stations. The AUTO MUTING indicator lights up on the display.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.

To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.

Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

Old jvc home stereo


FM stereo will need a good aerial to work properly, but AM doesn't. If you have not got a good aerial, stereo will stay off. Though you might still here the station. It needs a lot of signal to make the stereo light activate. If was to come on in the weak state the sound would be full of interference. So the set keeps it switched off.
