Question about JVC Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

We've had a JVC RX-5042S for a few years now and never a problem. All of a sudden we're getting "overload" all the time and the volume isn't even high! We're using the original speaker wire supplied with the system but am going to rewire with better wire just in case. Is there something else we can do?

JVC 6010V shows zero on volume wont go up or down


This is a fault on the D/A digital / Analogue converter , The volume control being analogue is not processing the data in the cicuit and so there is no change in the level. This can be a fault in the IC - the D/A convertor IC which is not giving any response with the turn of the potentiometer. So check this within the amplifier ONLY if you are able to trace the circuit and replace the IC connected to the potentiometer.

Overloaded. When watching movies or dvd's or TV my receiver will shut down and it says "OVERLOADED". It happens when I have the volume at 50 or more. Am I underpowered? What do I need to do?


your probably overdriving your speakers. unit will detectand set overload when it gets hot or your speakers start to disort out. most amps is at full volume at half volume anyways

Hello. I have a JVC RX-6042 and when I play music, DVD's or any other sound, it cuts out, either after 5 seconds or 5 minutes, it always changes. It cuts out faster at higher volumes. A few months ago it...


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads. I'm thinking heat.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

On our JVC RX-6030V When we try to play a CD we the receiver flashes "overload then shuts down. Is the receiver done, or is there a fix for this?


Only when playing a cd?? If it does it all the time it probably needs repair of one of the output channels. $80-$120 parts and labor. If it only does it on cd it would be very odd.

I have my jvc rx-778v that always overloads. why is that?


There could be a couple of reasons that its overloading one is make sure that there is no bare wire touching at all.The other thing it could be is the ohms rating over your speakers may be to low for you receiver.Most receiver can handle 8 ohms to 6 ohms there are a few that can handle 4 ohms check your speaker ohms rating then check how low your receiver can handle with out going into overload.

JVC RX-7000V


As per the instruction manual the overload is there because of high volume condidtions and your over heating the unit. They recomend to turn down the volume shut off the reciver wait a few minutes and turn back on the unit with lower volumes. Second it states that the peaker wires or speakers could be shorted so make sure the speakers are good and the wires when you connected them to the reciver are not shorted. If all is hooked up properly then you have a problem in the output stage of the amp and its gonna need service unless you know how to replace the defective output devices? If not Go online at the addy I give you to find about service parts or service manuals.. Good Luck http://www.jvcservice.com
