Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Rotel 600A Receiver has worked beautifully, albeit probably ony a couple of times max per week, for 30 years. Suddenly 'Bang' and the AC fuse has blown ! Replaced fuse (you never know !) and it simply faled immediately. Any ideas anybody. No, it certainly doesn't owe me anything, but it fitted in very nicely where it was !

I wuold estimate that the rectifier section of the power supply has failed. I don't recall whether that unit uses a bridge rectifier or separate rectifier diodes. In any case, you are looking at $15 worth of parts or so. Add in your local labor rate for the total repair cost. This should be a simple repair for any shop that repairs audio gear.

Electric storm, audio went out. Any way to check? or it the unit "shot"?


If the Unit Powers On then most probably the Fuses could have gone bad You will be able to replace the Main Fuse yourself but REPLACE WITH THE SAME KIND OF FUSE in terms of RATING

Hello I have a rotel RSX 1056 witch I used once six years ago for two months . I lhavent used it since then , and now I decided to hook it back up and I have no audio . It turns on but when I set a radio...


If you stored it in an area with high moisture content it is probably corroded at most of the contact switches. Capacitors also hate moisture, especially paper capacitors! The tuner is also probably oxidized inside. Now is the time to be brave and pull it apart, but first PULL OUT THE PLUG from the wall. Have at it with electric parts cleaner spray and clean, dry compressed air. If you believe that just because you stored it in your house, there was no moisture, think again! Radios like cars do not do well in storage unless you take precautions to protect them!

My breaker blew and this receiver was plugged in to that particular AC outlet. Does this receiver have some kind of Power Supply protection?


Is that outlet is the only circuit on that breaker?

The receiver may not have exceeded its own internal parameters to blow the fuse or enter protection but it (and whatever else is drawing power from its convenience outlets) may have exceeded the rating for your wall breaker.

There is a modest limit on how much extra current-drawing equipment can hang onto the back of this unit. It's probably printed near the outlet(s). Probably 100 watts max.

In general, nothing heavy duty like heaters, amps, vacuum cleaners, TV's should not be plugged into the receiver.

Suddenly, for the first time in all the years I've had this Sony receiver, a messege pops up on the front of the receiver saying "protector". What is this??? I have NO idea and don't know what to do. ...


Internal problem probably needs output transistors and a dual emmiter resistor (could a couple other parts too). Parts and labor should be about $100 to $125.

Volume dial doesn't work well anymore - when turning louder, sometimes turns volume lower or just stays at the same volume level


Some manufacturers allow you to set a max volume limit so you don't blow your ears off.  Check the users manual to see how to turn it off.
Also, have tech support install a new potentiometer for you.

My Rotel RSX-972 surround sound receiver has no power, the repair centre cannot isolate the problem and they do not have a service manual to guide them,a service manual would be handy??


Unless yuo can find a Rotel authorized service center, you are not likely to find any service information. These units should not be difficult to repair. Their designs are pretty much standard with a few twists. Any shop that handles audio repair should be able to resolve this. If not, please post your location and I'll try to locate a shop for you.

Also, are there any indications that the unit is trying to work at all or is it completely dead?

Thanks,
Dan
