Hi,

Re your post "...I can email you circuit diagram ASAP..." perhaps you could post/upload the schematics to http://megashares.com/ and thereafter post the link here.

Initially,

  • have you checked the the counterpart, +18?
  • have you measured the voltages without load?
  • it could be not a power supply problem but the outputs loading the PSU.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    There are four (4) versions of an Onkyo A-8190: UD, UG, UQ and UW/UWX. The difference mainly is on the power supply section. But what is common is TA7317P (protection IC), Q701, you may want to start there or the output transistors 2SA1491 & 2SC3855.

    Hi again,

    Got the schematics that you provided. A question pls, at what point did you measure the -18VDC, speaker terminals?

    If yes, then most likely a problem with the output transistor pair as initially posted. Additionally, if it is only on one channel, then you can use the other channel as reference when doing voltage measurements or in passive/resistance checks.

    Good luck and pls postback updates.

Determine each output stage and measure DC offset voltage.


If it is over 0.7V , have that IC remove.

No audio output. Offset voltage on output is 14 volts should be 0 volts. None of the Experts listed applies to this equipment.


You are correct in that it should be zero. This splits the difference between the Plus and Minus supply voltages. If one of the output transistors is shot, it can put voltage through. It can also be the result of a bad capacitor that couples the driver stage to the output. Where and how to troubleshoot further will depend on the make/model of the unit. Since you have a volt meter, you can carefully run down each of the output transistors checking the voltage on all 3 leads. One (or more) will likely be quite different and that would pinpoint your bad component. A good schematic is probably a good next step too.

Powerunit demaged, mising -12V, 12v, 5VAD not missing -28v, u5V Where is the problem


check primary of thransformer AC mains volts, then
check secondary of transformer AC low volts into each rectifier then check DC volts at capacitors then check DC volts at regulators inputs then check Dc volts at outputs
as you go draw cct diag and layout so you know where everything is and how it is connected.

if its the psu you will find the fault, only ever replace items with original parts or direct equivalents.


Hope this helps

Sony STR-DE475 receiver ''protect'' problem


The relay or relays that click disconnect the receiver from the speaker terminals so that no dc voltage can burn out the speakers. More than likely the power output transistor(s) are faulty. Look at the relay(s), determine the input and output connections. The inputs come from the output power transistor and emitter resistors area, the output of the relay(s) connect to the speaker terminals. Check for dc voltage on the input contacts in the range of 30-60 volts possibly. If dc voltage is found there then you have bad outputs, caps or emitter resistors. A word of caution -troubleshooting at this level requires advance knowlege of electronics, do not attempt this with out onsite help from a experience tech.

Yamaha RXV657 wont turn on at all. Fuse OK. Relay on "mains in" PCB not firing up. James.


check the voltage on the output transistors.
the center pins should be at +_ 60vdc.
the first pin on the left should be a half volt or so for the npn transistor and -.55 or minus a half volt for the pnp transistor.
any offset voltage will kick in the protection mode.

I have a pioneer receiver vsxd488(noone else seems to belive this model # exists)


One of the power amp ICs has blown and the receiver is sensing a DC offset on the output stage. The ICs are available for around $40-$50 but must be soldered into the circuit board. All five output stages must be measured for DC offset to find out which chip is bad before the receiver cuts off. The voltages involved are dangerous and this should not be done except by someone experienced with working on live equipment.

AVR-1603 - no Sound exept over Headphones is a weak signal


First check the outputs at the output fets/transistors for any DC voltage. Reference your voltmeter to the speaker - terminal. If there is ANY DC offset, the amp is shutting down the outputs to protect your speakers from DC. Is the power supply + and - 47 volts? If only one supply is there That is your problem because the supplies should be symmetrical. Also look for any wiring problems from the amp to your speakers... any shorts? Try disconnecting all your speakers to totally eliminate any speaker problem and see if the relays still click. You should hear only ONE click when you first turn the amp on (delay of about 2-5 seconds). If they keep clicking the amp outputs are next. Also, is there any indication on the front panel of what is failing?

Protect mode


You may have loosened a solder joint on one of the components inside with your air blast. A repair tech would monitor the outputs DC offset voltage and he will probably see one that is not zero volts and while wiggling various things he should see a sudden change in the DC offset voltage on the bad channel when he touches the bad connection. Then it's just a matter of resoldering the connection. Good luck on this one.
