Whats wrong with my stereo

How old is your HK receiver? The power supply capacitors can get old and tired, and cause the hum and shutoff. Repair is an option.

I have a Sony STR DE915 amp. It will not power up. I checked the internal fuse (it's OK). Power button has dislodged and may be broken. Am looking for disassembly instructions (not schematic diagr

Simple, if you are not confident in your ablility to fix the problem by dissasembling the boards then by all means, take it to a repair facility.

I brought a US model BDPs580 back with me from the states and connected it to an Australian outlet without changing the voltage. unfortunatly this caused a small popping sound and a small plume of smoke...


I have made that same misfortune a while ago with a ONKYO bookshelf stereo from japan that I plugged in without setting the voltage properly, and on it, the damage was so extensive inside that it was cheaper to replace it, rather than go through having every single resistor and capacitor replaced.

Almost always, this is a FATAL condition, unless you are willing to sink lots of money into the repairs.

I would probably just get a new stereo, and be done with it.

A good, high powered stereo receiver, with all the modern features only runs around $250-$400 dollars, and depending on where you go, it can be even cheaper than that.

I hope this let's you know what the options are, and good luck to you.

Can't turn on "A" speakers and "B" speakers at same time

This is a self-protection mode protecting the receiver from low impedence / High Current on the speaker side. Given that this is an exercise stereo and it may be turned up I would recommend purchasing a second amplifier to run the second set of speakers. Obviously I would recommend one that you would be able to add and remove before and after the class.

Rx-4103 stereo receiver, it cuts off after you turn it on, thei sound it make is a load pop.

Sounds like you have a bad capacitor in the power supply. Testing with capacitor tester and ohmmeter will be needed to find fault

I have a simple stereo speaker from Radio Shack. Small metal case with two wire input latches. Each box has two speakers in side. Both speakers boxes went out at the same time. I wasn't there when this...

You need to measure across the speakers themselves n ot the crossover (cap). If these are 8 ohm speakers, an ohm meter will read about 6 or so. That is because both impedence and resistance use the same measurement. With an ohm meter you are measuring resistance. The speakers are rated using impedence.

If both speakers are open (measure infinity), I would suspect a problem with the stereo that caused them to go open. With the stereo on and playing something (radio,cd , or whatever) use a DC voltmeter to measure between the speaker terminals (Red/Black). You should read essentially 0 no matter what the volume. If you read any DC more than 3/4 V, the problem is with the amp section of the stereo.

I have to reset my channels on my sendai car stereo every time i turn engine off

I would suspect that the radio is not installed correctly. There should be 12V present on one wire for retaining memory. There is a capacitor inside the radio that will retain memory for a short time (less than 5 minutes), but you should not have to reset the system after each start. If the wiring is correct, then the internal memory system may be defective and require replacement.

Denon AVR-2106 troubles

If the surround back is turned on,on the receiver,then the 7CH stereo will activate the 2 rear,but if it's off on the receiver the 5CH on the remote will do the same. I don't know much about the unit changing from 7CH to game,rock Arena etc.that i know will happen if u press the DSP simulation found @ the 3rd. top right button on the remote.
