    I have the Aiwa AV-D57 5.1 Receiver and think I need to replace either the fuse or LED light for the front main display. Where are the fuses or LED's located in the receiver and how do I replace them?

  • Danglas Jan 09, 2008

    When the unit is plugged in and the power switch is pressed, the on/standby light will light up and within a few seconds, a faint click sound is heard (like a relay clicking) and the on/standby light begins flashing. Also, there is no display at all on the front.

The lamps i use on all NAD displays(and have done since the early 1990's) last heaps longer.You can get them from RS components in your country. They are a 14v 37ma type, and seem to last. Never had any come back for replacement again. P/N 351-9585. Increasing the ballast resistor where fitted by 25% in valua also helps preserve them

I've encountered this same problem on two 712s. There is a pair of bulbs behind the display that burn out. (Only one has to burn out to disable both because they are wired in series.) My local shop charges $50-75 to make the repair, mainly because of the handling PIA in getting to them. It's actually not that hard. I took the cover off, unclipped the simple circuit board to which the are attached from behind the display and removed the bulbs using a soldering iron. I tested supply voltage and resistance on the good bulb. (I forget them both but I'm sure NAD CS could help.) I picked up two that were kind of close (as close as I could get) from Radio Shack and soldered them in: voila. It was really easy. HOWEVER, those bulbs, because they weren't a match to the originals burned too bright and burned out within 3 weeks. It's doable to repair yourself as long as you have a #2 phillips driver and a soldering iron. Don't start though, until you get PROPER replacement bulbs. (If you find out the specs, I'd be happy to know.) Good luck Nick

If you know you're way around the insides of receivers, or if you see you're repair person scratching his/ers head too much- there's a service note on the AV716 which mentions R921,922,923 (0.47 ohm) and R924 (33 ohm) resistors opening for no reason. Change them all from .25 watt to 0.5W of the same type. They are located on the main PC board 2 are in series with the transformer windings, and 2 are in the power supply. I've also noted that soldering in this unit might need some touch-up. REMEMBER the numbers I've given you are for a NAD AV716, so they might be different from the 712. Good luck, again

If this receiver display is like many others, the display has a backlight. It could be an incandescent lamp or electroluminesent panel.
Lamps are easy once you find out what the original is.
The other? not so easy. Take it to an tech who can get NAD parts and have it replaced.

Major troubles like "most things not working" are power supply issues especially if the main fuse is good.
For Danny....Try another good speaker on THAT channel and make sure the "ohms" rating is within + - 2 ohms

If you can see the info when there's light in the room, but there's no light in the display you probably need to change the lamp/LED that lights it. If there's no info at all then it's a bit more complicated and i can't give you a straight answer at the moment, but post your question again(as a new problem) specifying whether the info is visible at all or not. It could also be that your display has a dimmer, and somehow you managed to switch it on and the value to 0. Good luck, NAD makes really nice receivers, take care of it.

SOURCE: NAD 712 Display unit

On my system the bulbs burned out some time ago. Today, I bought a pair of 12v micro lamps at Radio Shack (part 272-1092). Then removed the board behind the display and replaced the bulbs. This required some soldering. The bulbs have held up for more than 6 hours, so I do not think they are going to burn out.

SOURCE: NAD 7130 FM stereo signal (on off again and again)

The contacts in the A B speaker selector switch had degraded on my NAD 7130 receiver. Distortion and signal loss would come and go. Contact cleaner and wriggling the swx knob became useless. Then, years ago I jumped the swx with small lengths of bare wire and tinned the whole thing with solder. Never had a problem since and it probably improved the receiver because it eliminated a component in the output stage that could (and did) introduce distortion.

If you're unsure of the input to use; I would normally use the CD input but as you're already using that I would use the AUX input. Don't use the Phono inputs as they are too sensitive.

Check to see if one of the Tape Monitors is ON. Turn it OFF.

There's supposed to be a pair of jumpers between Pre Out and Main In. Are they there? If not, install a short RCA cable pair.

Sansui G-7700 digital display


Funny that you just posted. On Monday, I dropped off my G-7700 at The Audio Lab in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. http://www.theaudiolab.com/

As soon as I walked in the place I knew I was at the right spot. They service and sell some really high-end vintage units as well as carry brand new high-end audio equipment. $60/hr for service work. As a gauge, my G-7700 took 2hrs to do a complete overhaul, which included replacing some pots, re-soldering cold joints, calibrating the tuner and other components. i thought it worked really well before!

Experienced, knowledgeable, efficient.

Give them a call and ship your G-7700 to them. It's worth it.

Technics Surround Receiver - Clicks, but doesn't function


There could be a number of reasons for this. It woyld help if you could indicate what resistors you changed. The circuit designation should be marked on the PC board. Please post those here and I'll look further and provide some possible solutions.

Thanks,

Will NAD 712 accept an iPod Docking Station?


A 712 is not set up to use an Ipod USB dock.  You can buy a dock that will use RCA jacks into an old stereo - Apple sells them, others too.  Then the Ipod sits up and you can look at it.  Or you can buy the 1/8" stereo plug to two RCA plugs that Radio Shack has been selling for 30-40 years, plug one end into your Ipod headphone jack, and run the two RCA plugs into your Aux input.  That costs about $5, and is easy as pie.  An Ipod will play through any old receiver, but the USB docks will not plug into them.

Hi okapi6

Use a 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA connector lead.
370a7a3.jpg Connect this to the AUX input on the back of the 7140, and away you go. Get the lead as an accessory from just about any electronics hobby store.

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.

Nad 712 output issues - Mute flashing


The only thing I can tell you for sure is that the mute indicator always flashes (very dimly) when the receiver is off.  I have no idea why, but mine has always done this.
