Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Make sure it is plugged in to a properly grounded outlet supplied with adequate levels of voltage, and whose circuit breaker has been reset, then after a pause, set again to On.

How old is the CAVS jb-199 in question?

Is it powered through a surge protector?

Did it show any signs of incipient failure before this problem happened?

That's a horrible answer. Please don't charge me. I will call CAVS tech support on Monday.

I don't think my answer was horrible. But given that you think so about my first effort, I have Opted Out, opening the case to Experts with some other approach to the problem.

I have no power, as a Expert, over charges or billing. For all issues of billing, payment, subscription terms and status, etc., I must refer you to Customer Support at, which may be contacted through:

They will no doubt address your concern, if you contact them, with reasonable promptness.
