Top 20 JVC RX-6018V Receiver Questions & Answers

you can do it a couple of different ways, depending on what you're trying to do with your set-up.if you're trying to do something different than what I describe here, add a comment. for independent volume control (each unit contols volume to a set of speakers independent of each other) use the rca 'tape' out of the jvc into the rca inputs on the back of the gemini.this puts a stereo signal from the jvc to the gemini. if you want your gemini to power your subs, get an rca y-splitter (single female to double male) and a single rca cable, hook single rca cable to sub out of jvc, connect y-splitter to gemini rca inputs, and single rca to y-splitter.

The nature of a source's digital bitstream is automatically detected at the receiver. Look at your unidentified source and ITS manual for that answer.

See the box on page 14.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; 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 and competent hands-on tech.

If you get your system up and running and hear an audible buzz or hum, the first culprit to look at is either the powered subwoofer or your reciever feed at the entry point to your system.

Do you have too much of a load on the amplifier? Or as SallieJohns mentioned, is it getting adequate ventilation?

No, one of your speakers is damaged (could be an amp channel went bad, but speaker is more likely). Unplug all spkrs, then plug one in and see if it acts normal when turned up. Repeat this until all speakers are hooked up or the culprit spkr is found.

Did you check impedance value and wattage on speakers you want to add to receiver?

Try first to disconnect all of your speaker wires and turn back on this receiver. If the problem persists, you will need to take the unit into a shop and have the output circuits checked out, as these are all solid state parts that are soldered into the printed circuit boards and there are no user replaceable parts inside this receiver. Good Luck

Change your Home Station in the DAB settings. If you do that and it reverts back, there _may_ be a motherboard battery that needs replacing. It is losing its memory when it is turned off. ..

In my experience the JVC brand hasn't maintained it's early promise of quality and I avoid the brand these days. It would have been helpful if you described the noise and mentioned whether it was constant on both FM and AM. Excessive noise isn't unusual on AM due to the inability of the basic circuitry to reject the various sources of interference found in the average home, partly because the AM ferrite rod antenna is usually inside the radio. The average AM radio is highly receptive to receiving and amplifying lots of interference from many sources especially that radiated by fluorescent lighting, cfl bulbs and even nearby mains wiring resulting in a loud hum or buzz. With the high popularity of FM and the introduction of DAB that has increasing popularity, the development of AM receivers ceased several decades ago. FM is immune from that type of interference but is by no means able to reject all interference and a powerful signal from an external antenna produces the best result, the best signal to noise ratio. Assuming the radio isn't faulty, the problem is most likely interference. If the power cord has a ground conductor it is very important it is connected to a good electrically quiet ground. If this isn't possible it could improve things to use an independent ground to the outer conductor of the coax cable to the FM antenna.

Clearly there is a short circuit somewhere in the circuit after the fuse. A close examination of the circuit and components might reveal evidence of the location of the short but if not it will mean disconnecting things one at a time until the short circuit disappears.
