JVC RX6040 OVERLOAD TROUBLE

Just got a used jvc rx6040 reciever and it continues to overload with the volume set to as low as "2". i have tried multiple speakers and get the same thing. it also "pops" in the speaker as i try to adjust the volume. the speakers i have tried are polk rti38 and jbl L15. i was hoping to set this up with both sets of speakers for a really decent garage stereo....... but so far very frutrating.....

    Hi- I had the same problem- the circuit board is shot- I opened the thing up and could see a black spot in the corner of the glass covered board where it shorted out.

    JVC do not sell the circuit board- so I am trashing mine.

    Sorry for the bad news.

Clean your volume control if that does not help take it to a tech for repairs.

I have a jvc rx-664v audio/video control receiver and it keeps saying overload what should I do


If it says OVERLOAD, you are playing it to loud, to long. Try playing it at 1/2 your normal volume. If it doesn't go into overload, that was the problem. If you have any additional questions, you may contact me at my website, audioserviceclinic.com. Thanks you.

My reciever plays then cuts out


They don't overload from missing speakers. I'm curious, what buggered the one speaker?

Examine all of your speaker wires carefully to be sure no unintended contact is made between them and anything else.

Is "overload" being displayed?

“OVERLOAD” starts flashing on the display.

Speakers are overloaded because of high volume.

1. Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn off the receiver.
2. Stop the playback source.
3. Turn on the receiver again, and adjust the volume.
----------------
Speakers are overloaded because of short circuit of speaker terminals.

Press STANDBY/ON on the front panel, then check the speaker wiring.

If “OVERLOAD” does not disappear after turning on the receiver again, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it back in again.
If speaker wiring is not short-circuited, contact your dealer.

My jvc rx-6010v is OVERLOADING?


The very FIRST thing to check is to make certain ALL of your speakers have an IMPEDENCE of 8 OHMS. (JVC - and others - say SIX ohms, but 8 is the "standard" you should use.) Virtually all speakers of even modest quality will include this specification on a label on the back of the speaker. You CANNOT run more than (2) TWO speakers with 4 OHMs impedence on ANY amplifier (technical discussion too long!) [NOTE: The internal overload protection system you mention is designed to help prevent permanent damage. However, you cannot re-set these systems yourself. Your dealer or authorized JVC service center must do this. Note, though, that if you have attempted to "cheat" the system several times, damage CAN be done that requires servicing.] But, before you take the unit in for service, there is one more "test": check for shorted and/or mis-connected/disconnected speaker cables/wires. Visually inspect connections at the receiver and speakers first. You might find something obvious! If everything looks okay, then disconnect ALL of the speakers; and reconnect and test them one at a time (at relatively low volume.) For example, reconnect the left front speaker, test the system; THEN add the right front, test the system,and so on, ADDING one more speaker each time - FIRST MAKING SURE EACH OF THEM HAS AN IMPEDENCE OF AT LEAST 8 OHMS! IF there is a short (or bad speaker) this will help isolate it. Hopefully one of these "fixes" will work for you. GOOD LUCK!

JVC RX558 VBK, Crackling noise from speakers


A quick quess of mine is the following:

The OVERLOAD indicator lights up when the receiver is maxing out on the current it is sending to the speakers. My guess is there is possibly something wrong with the receiver itself, especially since the B speakers won't play. Either that, or something is broken in your speakers or you are using a set of speakers that have too low an impedance rating for your receiver.
