Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

My daughter has a Ferguson F2 micro hi-fi which is about 18 months old. We have just come back off holiday and it no longer works. The colour changing light on the main display still works, but nothing else (we sometimes get the bottom half of the figures on the display, but that's all). I've tried unplugging it and plugging it in again, but it still won't work. There are no troubleshooting questions in the user guide and no help number. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Receiver turns on and off in endless cycle

Its one of Three problems. The main b+ filter is defective, one of the standby power sources have a bad capacitor on the line, or theres a short in the main amp. section. Its probabvly going to cost you more then you would care to invest in a reciver thats around 5 to 6 years old. Its most likly time for you to upgrade to a suround sound dydtem with new fancy lights bells and whistles. Good Luck

SOURCE: KEEPS SHOWING "OVERLOAD"

Sounds like you have a "nuisance shutdown", caused by failure of the speaker protection circuits which are notorious for problems. Unfortunately, more and more newer electronic units fail this soon. It's not really the manufacturer's fault, it's more that individual electronic parts have gotten cheaper to compete in the marketplace, and are more likely to fail than in the past. Unless you used to play the receiver really cranked up (which would suggest failure in the output circuits), you have a nuisance shutdown problem. At any rate, I would question the circuit design and probably buy a better brand (such as Denon or Sony) rather than take the chance of spending money and having it fail again soon. Just my educated opinion (technician for 35+ years).

From my experience you need to replace the Hi power module

SOURCE: STR-DH700 won't power up unless I unplug-plug it.

This is a logic problem with the internal microprocessor. A quick experiment: Turn the unit on for about 2 minutes and shut it down. Doe sit power uip in this case? If so, I'd suspect that the heat generated during normal operation is creating an internal problem thaty is preventing the micro from recognizing the "off" condition. The power data line is hung and is not being recognizwed by the micro so any attempt to turn the unit on will fail. The unplug/re-plug essentially clears or resets the unit.

If the unit is new, return it for warranty repair. It will be important to describe when the unit fails however. Try to see how long it must remain on for the problem to occur.

Update this with your results if the unit is not under warranty and we'll try to narrow it down.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: harman kardon avr 140 - all displays work but no sound

I have an HK AVR140 all of the displays work, even shows when a digital connection from the Blu-Ray player is connected but no audio comes from the speakers! I found some information that HK does not have DC protection so when there is a problem muting Circuit is initiated on the main Amp. I called HK and they want me to send it in to a service dept that is not close at all. Any ideas? Or is there a way to by-pass the muting circuit somehow?

CD player motor no longer working on hi-fi system.System at least 15yrs old.


I'm not sure what you mean by stating that the motor doesn't work. Depending upon the make and model, this unit should be repairable. Can you please post the make and model along with a more detailed description of the problem?

This indicates that the optics are not reading the disc. If this unit is indeed 1 week old, return it for a warranty exchange. Given its short life, insist on an exchange not a repair.

Str-da777es


I know I'm 18 months late answering your question, but unfortunately I have the same problem. My son kept shutting my on and off same as your daughter. It blew the amp board that obviously powers the amps. Sad news is Sony stopped making the board, so there is no fix. Really bites, I loved that receiver!

Ferguson FRG-R121D digital radio doesn't work. Only works on fm stations and then very poorly. Takes a long time to switch on with continuous clicking noise.


Hi,
I had the same problem and solved it. Mine took about 10mins to turn on (constant buzzing and beating before this). 
The problem is the 1000uf and the 220uf capacitors on one of the circuit boards near the front of the device. I replaced these with new ones and problem sorted.
So if you know what your doing, take it apart and solder in some new caps. If not...maybe get a new one!

My 17 month old daughter pushed in the mid and tweeter on my home stereo is there a way i can fix it without getting new speakers a trick of the trade if you will ???


Hi - As a last resort you can try sucking the cones out with a vacuum cleaner. Choose a "low" setting (usually there is a hole you can uncover in the hose" and go carefully!

Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
