Question about Nakamichi AV-3S Receiver

1 Answer

No right output

Hey guys I've had this receiver for about 5 years, and I like it a lot. It didn't see much heavy use over the years, just mild, on mild volume levels. Recently after moving the receiver to another house(I was carefull and don't think I bumped it), the output to speakers on the right side stopped working(both on the A and B speakers), I narrowed it down to the receiver itself, since the problem did not transfer when switching cables or speakers. Anyone seen this before? is this something that can be fixed easily? what am I looking at? Thanks for any help.

Re: no right output

When you say it didnt switch when changing cables?? Well if you have no output on the right speaker and you put the left speaker on and still had no output then its your speaker as the problem should have switched from right to left if the problem is in the reciver. Now you could check and see if there are any bent control shafts as this is common durring a move and that would account for the problem or there are internal speaker fuse that may have popped out but this ones doubtfull, or the preamp or main amp printed cuircut board has a crack in them?? If you checked all mof these and need assistance with this repair you can go to the manufactures website to see how and where you can send or take the unit for repair. Good Luck

The (+ve) & (--ve) poles of the connection wires have neen reversed is the meaning. Just interchange the wires of each either at speaker box or at the output terminals of the amp. If these connection are reversed, the sound effect will vary in intesity. OK.

When power is turned on, standby light comes on normally, but in any playing mode, the receiver switches off and the standby light flashes.

It looks like this is a common problem with a lot of the Sherwood Receivers. I've had the same problem with my R-125RDS for a while now. Finally hit on solution today by replacing a power transistor. The transistor in question is not on the power amp board but instead screwed to the chassis and wired to the mainboard. I believe it is part of the output short protection circuit. In my case the component was a 2SD2059 (silicon NPN 100V,5A) replaced by equivalent 2SD1407. The transistor seems to run pretty warm so I guess this is why they ultimately fail after a few years.

My Receiver just switched off on its own just now while perfectly working. Now when I tried to switch it on, it just switches off after about .5 second, you hear the relay sound switch on and then off....

As your complaint post indicates, there is a malfunction to its power amplifier output. Proper checking should be done to this stage by anu well experienced service technicians. Most of the components in the section carries high current, and proper care should be given whe repair this stage. Power output section of your amp is faulty, It switches on first without any problem, but after stabilisation, outputs the power to speakers [relay click indicates that]; then detects some short and shuts OFF. Thie is happening now. Get it repaired by any experienced service pwersonnel have experience in serivcing Hi-Watt amps. OK.

There is no output specific to a subwoofer. What is the correct sequence to do so? Downloaded manual does not help. The Energy sub-woofer has an amp input connection, but no output.

It probably does not need one. I have two receivers that have 5.1 inputs (the .1 is the subwoofer) with jst normal 5 speaker output... none for the subwoofer. That is because the speakers these days almost always have built in crossovers to split the freqs up and send the right freq @ power to the right speaker.

Just buy some speakers and don't worry about it. Look for warranty. Radio Shaft used to have 5 year warranteed speakers -- extremely good for the speaker market. I like bose and I hear infinity is another reasonble priced but well designed brand.

The dvr99 3 dvd home theater receiver will not stay on

Protect kicks on commonly when it over heats or when the speaker wires are crossed and it detects a short on the output. Your symptom sounds as though it may be a speaker wire because it happens right after the power is turned on. Check the speaker wire carefully, it has a habit of breaking inside the connectors of both the receiver and the speakers, especially after 5 years of service.
