JVC receiver Auto muting?

I have a JVC Stereo Receiver model RX-6020VBK. It worked fine except never got the AM to work, that's fine. My issue being if we try to play the stereo, FM, a light that says "auto muting" comes on. Receiver works for the TV and DVD, but on stereo. Mute is a seperate button and doesn't affect this. I've tried everything simple to get it to go away. Unplugged for a while, diconnected, pushed every button on the thing and the remote. Even opened it up. Only found one fuse and it was not bad. Any idea what I can do to make the auto muting go away? The FM antenna is plugged in. Thanks for any tips!

I have the same exact problem & tried the antenna thing. Nothing has worked. This system is about 20 years old, and has had some glitches. But never this problem. Any other suggestions?

How can I fix the auto mute on my jvc E100SL?

If your JVC E100SL receiver is showing an "Auto Mute" message and you are unable to perform a factory reset successfully, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can try to resolve the issue:
  1. Check speaker connections: Ensure that all speaker wires are securely connected to the receiver and the speakers. Loose or disconnected speaker wires can trigger the auto mute feature as a safety measure.
  2. Check the speaker impedance: Verify that the speakers you are using with the receiver have the correct impedance (measured in ohms) that matches the receiver's specifications. Using speakers with incompatible impedance can trigger auto mute.
  3. Inspect the wiring: Check all audio input and output connections to make sure they are properly connected and not damaged. A faulty or damaged cable can cause the auto mute feature to activate.
  4. Unplug and reset: Turn off the receiver and unplug it from the power source for about 10-15 minutes. This will allow the receiver to reset, which might resolve any temporary glitches or errors causing the auto mute.
  5. Check for overheating: Overheating can trigger safety features like auto mute. Ensure that the receiver has adequate ventilation and is not placed in a confined space. Clean any dust or debris from the vents to improve airflow.
  6. Perform a hard reset: If the factory reset procedure is not working, you can try performing a hard reset. To do this, locate the reset button on the receiver (usually a small pinhole) and use a paperclip or a similar tool to press and hold the button for about 10-15 seconds. This should reset the receiver to its default settings.
  7. Update firmware (if applicable): Check the JVC website or contact their support to see if there are any firmware updates available for your receiver. Updating the firmware can sometimes resolve software-related issues.
  8. Seek professional assistance: If none of the above steps resolve the auto mute issue, it's best to contact JVC customer support or take the receiver to a qualified audio equipment repair technician. They will have the expertise and diagnostic tools to diagnose and fix the problem accurately.
Always be cautious when attempting to troubleshoot or repair electronic equipment. If you are not confident with electronic repairs, it's best to seek help from a professional to avoid causing further damage to the receiver or risk of injury.

Receiver comes on but have no sound tried the solution; but it still didn't work. What I am seeing is, in the upper left hand corner of the window in small writing says "mute auto" which is...

Mute Auto is for FM only. It mutes interstation hiss while tuning. Look for some other indicator that might reveal why the signal path is failing. Tape?

Have you tried the basics? Speaker test? FM only?

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.

I tried restoring the sound by pressing Muting on master volume. Auto Muting still appears on the display and I can't restore the sound.

"Auto Muting" is for FM reception only and means it will mute the FM audio unless the signal is strong enough to provide decent audio.

Re-evaluate your symptom and corrective actions for relevancy.

Auto muting on when on am/fm and no sounds come out. everything else is fine.

That's normal.

The Auto Muting mode mutes the audio output of the tuner if the station is not sufficciently strong to be accurately tuned. Otherwise you would hear all that interstation hash noise.

Press the FM Mode button to change it to Mono if you want to manually tune a hard-to-reach station. It will be in Mono.

Page 26:

AUTO MUTING
Normally select this.
When a program is broadcast in stereo, you will hear stereo sound; when in monaural, you will hear monaural sound.
This mode is also useful to suppress static noise between stations. The AUTO MUTING indicator lights up on the display.
