Question about Aiwa AV-D67 Receiver

Unit clicks but won't turn on

When the receiver is off or unplugged and I go to turn it on all that happens is this clicking sound. Sometimes if I sit there and put the effort and try for 5 - 10 mins to press the power button over and over again it will eventually turn on. It will stay on for a day or so and then it will turn off on its own and the whole process starts over again. I have isolated where the clicking is coming from inside the receiver and it is on the left side if you are facing it from the front and it's a litte black box that's right under where the fuse is. The slot for that box is labeled as RY001. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: unit clicks but won't turn on

I had a problem with my av-d67 and found the solution on the av-d57 web site. The led on the front came on but unit would not power up. The site suggested removing the cover and finding a little black box behind the power supply and under the fuse. By pulling the box from the front, it easily came off, and exposed two silver contacts. Slightly bending the left conteact until it made constant contact with the right contact made the unit come and it's been working fine since. Your site was great. I was ready to scrap the unit thinking expensive repairs were in order. Whole repair took less than ten minutes. Hope this helps others with the same problem. Thanks for your help and your web-site.

Re: unit clicks but won't turn on

Had same problem as yall, noticed yall thought it was on the power board, found guy in another post who said used a bolt instead of fuse, and another that "straigtened " the contacts on his relay " little black clicking box.  non of that worked for me, however, i did go ahead and bypass the high voltage side of that relay by solderinf a piece of wire across the leads, and unit works now.  i DID notice a small amount of static through speakers if volume is all the way down and when usit is off.  i suspect probably a bad capacitor as mentiond above, hoever it doesnt bug me enough to go look for it.  this worked for me, if you can tell the high voltage side from the low voltage side, give it a shot. it wont blow up, well atleast mine didnt!

Re: unit clicks but won't turn on

Hi, I am a technician ,I found 7 bad caps in power supply: c101 460 uf 15v,c102 470uf /16v,c103 100uf/25v,c104 22uf25v, c126 100uf/10vc125 100uf/50v,c556 220uf/10v. I also replaced Q107 NTE85. Now the Aiwa turns on after two trys after about a 8 hour standby period.Also I resoldered Q108,Q109. I have more troubleshooting work to find this problem but if two times is acceptable to you for your Aiwa OK. I took apart relay RLY001 carefully and found the contacts were not hitting square so I adjusted them perfectly. Please post more information if you have any on the "two times" problem. Tim Rasch

Re: unit clicks but won't turn on

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the receiver and check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the reciver to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your receiver serviced. good luck!

Kenwood KA 995 amp. volume control, as you increase or decrease the sound, a loud clicking sound is heard.

Katrina, this sounds like a dirty potentiometer (volume control knob). Try turning the unit off, and exercising the knob. That means turn it full turns, many times, like 70 times. Then try it again with power. Sometimes this helps.

Denon AVR-3801 lights up,makes rapid clicking noises when amp tries to turn on. Clicking stops but unit doesn't play & sometimes the unit turns off. Occurred after lightning storm. What to do to fix?

Probably damaged by power surge. If you do not have experience diagnosing and repairing electronic circuits as well as having access to schematic diagrams then this is not a repair for you. Failure to replace all damaged components may result in damaging new parts.

Getting sound on turn-on is intermittent

If you can open the case and check for dust and dirt collection, that might help. If dust accumulation occurs it coats the electronics and may cause over-heating. Over heating will create temporary shorts and in time total failure. Vacuum the interior and make certain the unit has good venation. Warped circuit boards act in that fashion also.

The clicking is the sound of a bad relay. A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under the control of another electrical circuit. There is no user solution for this. You'll have to take it to an electronics repair shop (~$150) or dump the whole unit.

Sony Receiver Str-av370 ... The red "P"

i have the same receiver and i also have the same problem,
this happens when i turn the volume or the bass too loud.

it suddenly clicks and the sound cuts off. then the flashing red P appears.

My solution: As soon as it happens, quickly press the power button twice (turn off, turn back on)
and turn the volume knob all the way down. wait 2-3 seconds and it will click back to normal.

If you take too long before turning off the receiver when the P appears it will not work.
In this case you have to unplug the power cord and let it rest for at least 20 mins then plug it back in.

hope this helps!
ps: I've been using this receiver for mure than 8 years so i'm quite used to it!

Unit wont turn on

.Hi jepenny

The board you are looking at is the standby cct and power switching PCB. It sounds like that is working, so you have probably lost power to the transformer primary or the transformer is open circuit. Check for blown fuses and replace with exact same type and rating.

Be sure to unplug at the wall before touching any internals!!

If you can find no blown fuses, the power transformer may have failed. Good luck, get back to me here is you need any more advice. Thanks for using "FixYa"
