    System worked fine for years. Suddenly I only can get a very low volume when volume knob is turned all the way up.  I was using TV remote and pressed a number above four when it happened. Played around with the receiver buttons and suddenly the volume came back to normal. Not sure how I fixed it.

    Have the same issue. In normal tuner mode can only hear sound if I turn it all the way up. If I put it in Stadium mode I can hear it fine albeit with a stadium echo. Any ideas?

I have a JVC A-L55 and I just plugged it into a reciever. It is working fine but the volume is very low. I have to turn the volume on the reciever all the way up to hear it. The reciever is attached to new...

You need to find out if your reciever has a "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" built in. Many don't and it's no good putting it in an aux or tape socket. If it doesn't say 'phono' or 'record player' on the socket it probably won't have one. Don't worry you can buy one, which will restore the normal sound level.
If it does have one it could be faulty. They are often a single IC that has failed, but they tend to kill the sound dead when they fail, so I don't think that will be your problem.
Just put the words "magnetic cartridge pre-amp" into Google to find one.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...

I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

Got a Nakamichi AV-2 receiver at a garage sale, no manual however. Can I use it to power a 5.1 surround system for home theatre?

I could find only little information about this receiver, but it seems that is supports only 4.0 Dolby Pro Logic.

There is an Echo @ the other end when I am talikng with them. It sounds fine @ my end but always a problem At the recieving end????

I just figured this out for mine - unfortunately it's a little bit of a bummer -

Experiment with your volume levels. Get a guinea pig/friend to listen for the echo while they talk - start with your listening volume all the way down while they talk, and gradually turn the volume up, until they hear an echo. Knock it back down one more notch and you should be good.
