I'VE HAD THIS RECEIVER FOR YEARS & IT'S WORKED PERFECTLY, UP UNTIL A FEW DAYS AGO. I WAS LISTENING TO MUSIC WHEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I HEARD A STRANGE SOUND (KINDA LIKE IT WAS BURNING UP) COMING FROM IT. AT ONCE THERE WAS NO SOUND. ALL THE LIGHTS COME ON.. BUT NO SOUND. I LOOKED FOR BLOWN FUSES, BUT I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY. CAN ANYONE HELP ME??

I'd troubleshoot first, even though you've already tried the headphones (good thinking). Get a battery (AA battery works) and put the black and red wires on opposite sides to see if the speakers are working. Is there a menu of settings on the jvc, and is it set to 5.1? Just trying to help...
Sound from a speaker, nah, that's an optional feature (kidding).
If you dig into the manual annd go through the setup using the test tones you can prove/disprove the viability of all the speakers and channels. THAT is required before we try to listen to 'music' (assumed 2-channel) on multiple speakers.
Sound Field programs (page 25) can be applied to just about any source. Experiment, even within a given recording. You'll be amazed how different digital processes can make even familiar recordings new and more interesting. I've discovered instruments and sounds in old recording I never noticed before.
All you need is either a dock, which will keep the I-Pod powered up, or a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono leads, which will also be needed for the dock, this plugs into your headphone socket of your I-Pod and the two RCA's into an aux socket on the JVC. You can then listen to it in Dolby Pro-Logic. You won't be able to listen in Dolby Digital, unless the I-Pod has Dolby Digital output, which will require a different lead.
Of course the sound source (music) would have to be recorded with Dolby Surround, to get the full benefit, but many are, they just don't say in the imformation given.
I have this same unit. It is many years old, and does not handle any modern codecs, nor home theater duties. It was, however, a very good unit for its day. If I were to sell mine, I would not accept less than 100 US with remote.
I replaced R916 with a 10 ohm wire wound resister and that fixed the problem on the unit I have. That resister is in serise with R 915 so they should be close in value. Both were marked 8 ohms but tested about 11 ohms on R915 and the bad one tested very high (over 1 meg) so I replaced it. When I first put it back together it didn't work but I noticed that the ground screw at EP901 was not retighted so be sure that all ground screws are tight and all conections are redone before testing with the power cord.
