JVC AX-33 Stereo Integrated Amplifier - very little sound!

My amplifier is having some problems!

I can turn it up to full volume and it is still very quiet, i have tried the speakers on both channels and i have the same problem. I know the speakers are ok because i have tried them on another system.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have a AX66 hooked to a RM20 and have the same problem, I can hear a very faint sound and have a checked all the routing which seems in order but no loud sound. BTW I'm a AV engineer with Barco 12K and 18K, Sony Anycast and Folsom weekly hookups for AV shows. I do know my way around and this thing did work and now it doesn't after I moved it to another room. What is the button pattern?

Hi xaser

Check that someone has not turned on the tape monitor or mute. Both of these may cause the problem. Is there alot of noise with the sound you are getting when you turn it up?

Hi all, A possible solution for some situations.

A friend gave me his old stereo amplifier (kenwwod kr595). All worked, except that even with Volume full, there was very little sound when any source was connected to any of the rear rca jacks (ie. CD in, Tape in, etc.).
However one pair of the rear jacks played the sound back perfectly (ie. with Volume dial at normal setting). This pair was labelled "Adaptor in".
I googled for a manual, and found that for the sound to play back properly through the other jacks, the "Adaptor in" pair, had to be connected to the "Adaptor out" pair (next to it). This had been made that way, to allow that an Equaliser could be connected in and out of the chain.
The manual said that if not using an equaliser, these need to be connected another way, which I quickly achieved with another short regular rca to rca lead (same type used for connecting everything else).
After this anything that was connected to the other "in jacks" played a proper sound level.
I did notice though, that the sound quality was not quite as clear and strong, as when I connected a source directly to the "Adaptor in" jacks, but would still be fine for most folks.

I Have a yamaha ax 570 amplifier.

The problem may be due to a change in your aural response rather than the equipment. The high end can sound overemphasized or shrill even

I am thinking of replacing my now very old JVC AX 330 amplifier with a Marantz PM7003 amplifier and want to know if this is a suitable replacement in terms of power output etc.

You, sir, are a rare adherent to stereo-only electronics. Are you replacing it for cause (showing its age)? The PM7003 is only 2 x 70 watts like the JVC but it also has separable preamp/amps so you COULD upgrade or augment the power output with external amps and still control it all locally.

Of course, any current AVR's do that too and bring digital sources and multichannel audio to the mix for as little as the PM7703 may cost.

I have a fisher ca-9335 integrated stereo amplifier thats hooked up to sanyo tp 1010 turn table and plays out of yamaha ns-70t speakers. a simple jvc cd player is also hooked up to the speakers but not to...

Something doesn't add up. You mention two connections to the speakers - CA-9335 and a "simple jvc cd player". Is that true? If so, you might want to UNconnect the CD from the speakers and run it into the receiver where it belongs. An amp isn't designed to share the load with another live device; or even have electrical contact with anything BUT speakers.

Did you actually find documentation that supports this hook-up? Or just winging it?

My amp stopped workin, when i turn the stereo on, the green light is on, then when the music starts to play it turns red and stops working,

The red light on amplifier relates to power supply while the green light is indication of sound functionality. An amplifier that allows sound to generate should display both red and green lights. Howeever, some amplifiers would display only green as long as the sound is functioning.

Solving the problem

First, a red light still on means the power connections to the amplifier is fucntional least requirng repairs.

Second, the green ligh should turn on once the stereo were tuned up to produce sound. If the stereo is still on only least produce sound on the amplifier, check on the connection wires between stereo to amplifier that may have disconnected due to woofing or dubbing sound generals with unfirm wiring.

JVC AX-66 Integrated Amplifier seems to be muted?

You need to have a jumper between the 4 standalone jacks on the right side of the column of stereo connectors. A stereo RCA cable would work for this.

The volume will not turn down

Do the volume controls on the stereo itself (not the remote) work? Try using a universal remote to lower the volume.

My JVC AX-33 is giving almos tno sound

My experience tells me that after an amplifier had been used for quite a while (more than 5 years), the contacts (on any button) wear out and become loose. If you try to press to engage, you will notice that the sound will come back on. The most frequently touched/used buttons are the one that wear out easily. These contacts should be replaced with original one. Substitute parts won't last long.

Amplifier will only put out "faint" music, etc, even when the volume is turned all the way up

This may sound silly, but please check to be sure that the tape monitor switch in not engaged. Update this if that is not the problem.
