Question about JVC RX-817V

Open Question

I own a JVC RX-817V Audio/Video Control Receiver its pretty old now, and uses copper wires to run sound to the speakers. The problem is that only one set of the output clamps actually puts out any sound - the others put out sound so low you can barely hear it. I was wondering if this was a common problem for this model with an easy fix or if it's pretty much done for? I have 4 speakers to hook up so hope to hear from someone soon!

There is likely a static charge (voltage / difference of potential) between the the receiver and the TV.

They should have their grounds tied together. This should be covered in your owner's manuals.

In some cases, there may also be a stray voltage on the cable line's ground. If grounding the two together doesn't work, you may want to call the cable company (or you or a friend may be able) to check the cable line for a stray voltage or bad ground.

SOURCE: Connecting Powered Subwoofer to a Receiver

you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.

First of all, it is bad form and potentially dangerous to be changing cables with speaker power ON. Second, IS the unidentified TV passing audio out those jacks? Its own audio menu and controls may be between the sound and the jacks.

I have a JVC RX 554v Receiver when it's turned on I have no sound their is a mute auto light that's lit in the window....Tried changing the speaker wires with no results...


From the remote control only: Press MUTING to turn off the sound through all speakers and headphones connected. "MUTE" appears on the display and the volume turns off. To restore the sound, press MUTING again. Turning MASTER VOLUME or pressing VOLUME +/- also restores the sound.

Can my rx-817v home theater system be connected to an ipod or is it too old?


Any iPod or MP3 player at its most basic level is just an ordinary analog audio source.

For just listening, any audio device with a headphone/earbud output can be connected to any available analog Line Level input (except PHONO) with a simple adapter. They don't tell you that in the iPod manual because they want you to purchase expensive accessories like docking stations.

You'll still have tyo navigate the music on the iPod. Life is cruel like that.

Bare wire sub to single RCA jack receiver


Yes you can modify RCA cables to make bare wire tails.
If the unit has a sub o/p then you just connect up your sub bass unit to whatever the amp needs.

An RCA cable is 2 wire which is all you would normally need for sub bass speaker level signal.
It may be a good idea to eventually upgrade the wire size if you want really good sub bass as lower frequencies draw more current and so require more copper.

Please let me know if this any help, thanks for using FixYa.

swap the wires around to see if the right speaker will give sound on the left channel. If it does, the it's a blown left speaker. If you don't get sound out the right one either, then the left channel ouput has a bad capacitor somewhere in it.
