Question about JVC RX-1028V Receiver
I inherited a non-working receiver which powers up, tunes in FM stations, and looks completely operable, but no sound comes through the speakers or the headphone jack....almost like it is muted.
Any thoughts on where to start on this? I am seeking adventure here and not afraid to dive into the guts of this thing...i have nothing to lose and a receiver to gain if i can fix it. But i need some help getting started.
As it is a receiver then it's probably something to do with the amp section. Either the pre-amp or the power amp. If you get no response at all by connecting a tape or cd player to it, then it's likely the pre-amp might have failed.

It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

If you want to buy the antenna wire you could get one at radio shack that will plug into the spot you are talking about or as I used to do is put a small nail into the middle of the hole and wrap a wire, wire is 3 foot long longer the better, that is stripped around the nail, the wire only has to be stripped where it touches the nail, this is not the professional way to do this but it works the same, make sure not to push the small nail in to farand the nail fits the hole snug, Would recommend getting the one from radio shack but I have done it the way I said for ever and works fine. And you will have fm reception

Tips for a great answer:
Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.
