How to Troubleshoot a JVC Surround Sound
Make sure all the cables are connected securely if there's no sound. (audio cable image by Adam Borkowski from

JVC makes a selection of high-power DVD digital theatre systems for surround sound. The boxes feature High Definition Multimedia (HDMI) output with 1080p up-conversions. There are connections for iPods and rear wireless speakers. The JVC surround sound systems handle 1000 Watts total power at 155 Watts-per-channel with 225 Watts for the subwoofer. There are also sound-bar systems for space savings. If you encounter unexpected results, you can troubleshoot.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Check that the power cord is connected if the JVC surround sound system won't come on. Look for a disconnected power cord at the wall.

  2. 2

    Verify that the source equipment is turned on and connected to the surround sound system if a device won't play. For example, make sure any MP3 players or iPods are connected, fully charged and turned on. Make sure the source selector on the JVC surround system is set to the device you want to listen to.

  3. 3

    Check the speaker connections if you hear a hum. Move the surround sound box away from any other electrical components and make sure any external antennas are grounded. Keep the surround sound receiver away from the television if you hear a hum.

  4. 4

    Change the batteries on the remote control if the remote control won't work. Look for any obstacles between the remote and the receiver. Make sure you are pointing the remote at the receiver.

  5. 5

    Take a look at the CD/DVD deck and make sure that there's a disc there if there's no playback. Check that the disc is placed within the guide.
