Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a Technique(?) stereo receiver. Everything work fine for years. Then all of a sudden, when you would turn the volume up, it would go into overload and cut off the sound. And it wouldn't even be all that loud. The more bass in the song,it would shut down at even a lower volume. This is the receiver going out, isn't it?

All of a sudden our receiver stopped working. The display looks fine, but there is no sound.


Turn the volume control to something medium.

The errant switch, control or condition may change and you will suddenly release the amp's full power and possibly destroying your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.

Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Source Selection, Mute, Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.

If you have an aha moment turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Your connections seem to be right.

Let's distill this down to its simplest configuration... does the onboard FM produce sound? If not, nothing will.

NEVER USE MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.

There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Suddenly my yamaha Rx-v2300 only works to provide sound at nearly full volume to get any sound at all. This then comes with a background buzz. This only occurs while getting cable TV signal, using other...


I'm assuming you have a cable converter box (set-top box) that you have hooked to your receiver. Check the box volume using the cable company's remote control. These boxes frequently have variable audio output, and if you turn the volume down on the box you'll have the symptom you're describing. When you press the volume up or down buttons on the remote, you'll usually see a volume bar on the TV screen. As you raise the volume, there may be a point marked by an arrow, which is where you should set the volume. On some boxes, when you get to a certain level the words "best stereo" appear, and that's where to set it. If your box doesn't have some indication like this just leave the volume set 3/4 or full up. Then the volume on the receiver should function properly with the cable TV input.

I have a JVC RX618V stereo receiver which is about 20 years old that suddenly is not outputting a stereo signal. Any idea what the problem could be?


Please clarify. No "stereo" output or no output, period?

What source(s). Try FM.

Is Tape Monitor On? Turn it Off.

Speakers On or Off?

Pioneer VSX-1017TXV-K.......it keeps shutting off at high volume..can't figure out why and have tried everything in the manual to stop it but it keeps doing it


Hello, your speakers are the problem or if your unit has a fan it is not working. Turn on the stereo at low volume. Take off the speaker grill (if you can) and put your ear up to each speaker in each cabinet. You will most likely find that a mid-range or tweeter speaker is not putting out sound. That's what I have seen the most in the 20 years or so of doing this. Good Luck

D608 - Volume Problems


I just picked up one at the dump. You have to take apart the front end by unscrewing screws and pulling out ribbon edge connections. It is easier than some components. Then pry off two of the small clamp downs on the front of the volume potentiometer; pry apart about 1/32 of an inch and spray control cleaner for a second and clamp down. repeat on other side.
worked for me.

Yamaha RX-V793 flashing light on volume control and no volume


Per Yamaha support page: The volume light on my Yamaha AV receiver is flashing, what does this mean ? The "MUTE" function on your remote control has been activated. The reason that you can still hear a very low sound is that the muting circuit within your stereo is not a full mute, but rather a -20dB mute. To deactivate the "MUTE" function, simply press the "MUTE" button on your remote control. (Make sure the volume control is turned down to avoid damage to your system.) If you misplace or lose your remote control, you will have to purchase a new remote control unit, as there is no duplicate function on the front panel of your stereo. Unplugging the stereo will not deactivate the muting circuit, as the microprocessor "remembers" if the muting circuit was active prior to being turned off or unplugged. If you need to purchase a remote control, you may order one directly from our parts office. You may reach them by dialing (714) 522-9888 from 8 am to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. If you have any other questions, please contact our customer service department by dialing (800) 292-2982 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
