Question about JVC RX-6042 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound cut-out Sound from any source, DVD,CD or even VHS cuts out at irregular intervals, sometimes 5 mins apart, sometimes 20 secs. When it cuts out it might stay out for 3 secs or sometimes 30 secs. I have Digital optical in as well as RCA's to R & L (red & white).I have checked all connections, changed the optical cable and even changed the DVD/CD player. Any ideas? Cheers, John

    I have this same problem. I have chacked all DC voltage, protection circuit, all transistors in voltage stabilizatin circuit +12V -12V +5V and everything look good. I think problem is with some temperature protection, but I don`t know where I should to find it.

    I have the same problem. When the sound cuts out, the receiver is switching to pcm mode. Is there a way to do a factory reset on this machine. Couldn't find it in the manual

Most likely this unit goes into protect mode due to heat detection. Try to see if there is a pattern to when this behavior starts. Does a lower volume level allow the unit to run longer? Perhaps there is a problem internally that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output stage. This will cause excessive heat which can then cause the protection circuit to kick in. This unit may need to see a bench with some test gear to locate the exact problem. If you can, look for any pattern and update this.

You could try a total reset of the system. To do so, Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. When the display flashes at about 1 sec intervals, release all buttons. Then select a desired source as normal and see if it plays as expected.

theb best way to do this is to connect the DVR to the vhs unit and the vhs unit to the tv using red white and yellow for both connections. usually composite video 1,2,3 or 4. DO NOT involve the AVR at all, as it will cause your video and audio to be out of sync.The video will not be as sharp, until you play it threw an up-converting dvd or AVR.

Sound cuts out- cable tv


I had the same problem when I installed the new HD Comcast cable box (DCH3200), initially with my CRT through RF, then with my HDTV through HDMI. Problem solved when I replaced the box with the Comcast RNG110 I got from my local Comcast. It is a neat miniaturized box and it works extremely well on HD. There is no power switch on the box so before activation do not forget to put it on with the remote (cable, power, the green light will come on).

Is this during a DVD? if so then your DVD may be scratched or your digital coax cable is a cheapo inferior quality cable.

Sound cuts out.


I had the same issue with the front right speaker randomly cutting out. Thought it was a loose solder joint however upon taking it apart i found that something near the back panel was shorting out. While apart i found that wiggling the rear panel would cut in and out the speaker. Also the fan would turn on when the speaker worked, which until i took it apart i didn't know it had a fan. I removed the back panel by taking out several screw the hold the cable plug-ins. once the panel was out i insulated it with electrical tape then used a utility knife to cut out all the cable connector holes. I also took out a couple screws on the main board so i could lift it a bit from the back and ran electrical tape over the solder point for the speaker connectors. Put it back together and haven't had any cut out's since. I now notice that the fan now runs all the time exept when i press mute. I also hear a single tap noise for a second when i mute or turn off the receiver. I can certainly put up with that though. Hope this helps someone else, I put up with the speakers cutting out for 6 months before i got around to taking it apart. Also those bannana plugs are a rip off, I went to future shop to buy them and couldn't beleive they were 25.00 for two pair. That would mean it would cost me 75.00 to do my 5 speakers. Thats more than i paid for my dvd player. anyhow i didn't buy them and just used bullet connectors, pack of 10 for less than 5.00, not made of gold but they work fine.
