if you have old speakers laying around the house try to see what happens, if you connected the good speaker and still has no sound then the internal amp maybe is bad. Make sure it is not muted also.LOL

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.

were you able to play copied dvd's on this unit ? if yes then check setting on the dvd menu for things like DVD REGION and DVD playback speed and types of DVD playable, this is quite likely as i ha this problem on a pioneer model previously.

do those copied dvds no longer play on the same unit ? and you have tried them again on another unit or dvd player ?

rather i suspect problems with the DVD burn itself and its compatibility with the dvd player you are palying them on now (asuming settings in DVD enu are correct as loosely outlined above in point 1)

it may be that if this is a new dvd player than the one you played them on before, the dvd's may have to be closed in a certain way using your burning software so that they are playable on standard dvd players.
please also check that region is not an issue and that the recording speed of the dvd (the rip speed) is not too high or too low for your unit, as this data is stored on the written dvd and is responsible for the quality of the palyback data.

Had the same problem, unit came on with "Power Error" for a few seconds then shut down. Checked the JVC power supply and had the correct 23.5 VDC at the pin jack. Re-inserted the power jack and quickly kept randomly pushing the front play, stop, FF, Vol + - and rewind buttons on the unit. It came on and is working fine. Guessing it's an internal software or component issue sensitive to our constantly fluctuating and failing commercial AC service

A fan is not running

JVC Audio... | Answered on Apr 06, 2020

It does have an aux input with two levels but this isn't suitable for a turntable.
A suitable input should have RIAA correction with a sensitivity of just a few millivolts for a magnetic cartridge.

Instruction manual can be found on the link below...

I searched jvc.com for your model CA-C77BK S/N and couldn't find it even in the archives.

It must be a discontinued unit.

Usually when this happens you have to take the unit apart to retrieve the cd.

I don't think it's worth fixing, as parts don't seem to be available or listed, not even the user's manual online at jvc.com.

However, I did find a link for the service manual for this vintage compact component system:

May I refer you to that manual to try to figure out how to fix this problem.

Unfortunately, it costs $33 for the manual. You'll have to decide if it is worth it to buy it.

Good luck to you in fixing this problem.
