When switching from "TAPE" of "LINE IN" to "RADIO"
Does NOT matter if the Volume control is up or totally defeated (that's the oddest part of this issue)
Does NOT "pop" going from "RADIO" to "TAPE" or from "RADIO" to "LINE IN"
All functions work well on this machine (except for the woofer issue currently being pursued) and all controls have been cleaned and work well except for this nasty little "pop".
If it were a power switch on an old tube amp I'd strap it with a resister and a cap in series; it's that same sort of "pop"
Any thoughts? Solutions? Was this normal behavior? I don't have enough experience with JVCs or boxes of any kind to know.
I'd like to get rid of it when I go in to do the cap job eventually and it would be nice to know if there's something to look out for or possibly something I could do in the meantime. Actually, I'd LIKE to be rid of it right now; it can't be doing anything any good. And again, it is not volume control dependent, it does it just as long as the machine is "ON"
I know the tweeters would HAVE to appreciate it! I am starting to wonder if this has any connection with the fact that everyone that's offered help and insight regarding my dead woofer search has also commented that their M60 too had one bad woofer. Seems to be very common with this model: the M60 ONE dead woofer syndrome?
But one would think a transient "pop" like this would be killing tweeters, not woofers.
If someone knows of this and it's a pattern failure cap, I'd need a board number as my service manual has yet to be ordered.
Anyway, any help with this would be well received.
