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.
I only have a fuzzy brochure (no manual) for this unit.
Are the channel indicators normal or at least Front L and R lit?
Do you have headphones and/or can you run an audio pair out from, say, VCR1 (but DON'T select it on the front panel), to the TV to see if there is any audio passing through the unit with an FM station tuned?
Or a tape deck that you can use to prove some kind of programming is circulating internally?
You didn't answer about the Tape Monitor or DAT/Tape 1 being OFF.
Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?
The most common problem is a dirty record<>play switch inside the unit. Try this: Using a blank tape, press and release record/play buttons several times. This can clean the switch a bit. Then play a tape. If it fixes the problem, then you need to take the unit apart and use a plastic safe spray cleaner on the switch (Check at Radio Shack, their tuner cleaner Catalog #: 64-4315 will work fine). Spray it into the switch and then work the switch with the buttons several times.
