Question about Sharp Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

My Aging GX CD1200 was recently sent in for repair but the repair shop was unable to get spares for the circuit board. I found, upon its return that they had actually fixed the problem. However, they snapped an equaliser shaft which I would like to repair. However, despite undoing all the screws I could find, I cannot get the machine apart. The base will not move but the top is quite loose. Any suggestions?

As I mentioned in my somewhat lengthy problem description, I had undone - or rather thought I had - all of the screws holding the back of machine to the front. However, even though the large screw accessible from inside the batterry cover seemed to be turning freely, the bottom section of the machine would not separate. In desperation, I changed to a finer head on my philips screwdriver and pressed it in really hard. As soon as I turned it, the bottom of the machine began to move away from the front.
So the only problem was that the screw in question had not been loosened properly. Although the initial philips head had loosened all the other screws, on close examination, it seemed worn and the new head was obviously sharp enough to do the trick.

I would like to know what causes Sony str-km2 protection mode after hit by a lightning

There are failed components in the receiver. The protection mode prevents a fire from starting by those failed components. Lightening strike ruins the majority of components on the circuit boards whether you can see the damage or not. Get an estimate from a repair shop. If it comes back as toast, then get yourself a new unit. Damage from lightening is not usually covered by your home owners policy

I have a Yamaha RX-V630 Amp/Tuner. It recently blew or burned up another capacitor. Second time in about 4 years. What coukd possibly be making this amp do that. It was professionally installed. Both...

Electrolytic capacitors are known to fail due to heat over time, as they will dry out. Depending upon cost of replacement, and if you are happy with the amp (repaired), consider repair. Repair service should check voltages to ensure circuit is working properly.

If a ceramic or tantalum capacitor, look at the circuit parameters. Check the other capacitors nearby for signs of failure.

No sound

I have a Onkyo receiver, I had the same problem. I took it to a repair shop and they found there was a poorly soldered connection on a circuit board. They re-soldered it correctly and it works fine now. I would not have been able to find this myself. Just sharing my experience, your problem may or may not be related. You may need to take this to a repair shop, if it is really circuit board related like mine was, it is not something the average person has the training to find and repair.

I need a onkyo m-506rs meter driver circuit board 1786

This is a driver circuit board for an Onkyo power amplifier model Grand Integra M-506RS. It is unlikely that this assembly can be found, amd I suggest that the existing assembly be repaired.

Power on but no click sound. found some transistors and resistors burn in a small board located at down side of the amp, need scematic circuit diagram to repair it. Please send.

If you have burnt the transistors that are located on the circuit board, then you wont be able to repair it I dont think because in the circuit board there are probibly mulitple layers of electrical wires the are extremely small and fine that would make it impossible to connect the transistor to the right layer. Try contacting the manufacturer though

I have the same problem with the static and distortion

I can only assume that the unit either produces noise or no sound at all. The DSP board contains all of the digital processing circuits. Even with all surround processing turned of, the signal still passes through this board. It is possible to repair the board, but special tools and techniques are required and most shops are not set up for that level of repair. Unfortunately, the safest option is to replace the board. Inquire whether or not there is a "core" charge. This means that there is some value to the bad board that can be refunded to you upon its return to the manufacturer. With a $300 board, you may be able to recover up to $100 by returning the defective board. Dan

My sony world radio icf-sw100 wont turn on and i just put new batteries in it

Chances are the metalic "dome" under each button in question has rotated slightly out of position. This happened with the Sync button on my post-1997 SW100. Sunddenly no Sync function and nothing about Sync on the display. The problem is easily remedied if you're into radios. literally. (A friend fixed mine.) I know several individuals who might be willing to repair your unit. E-mail me for names? paul-diehl[at character]


Whatever your do, DO NOT SEND YOUR UNIT TO THE SONY REPAIR CENTER IN LAREDO. I sent mine in for the Sync repair and had it returned unrepaired, with "corrosion" given as the reason. I then had an electrical engineer take a look and he correctly diagnosed the problem in 90 seconds. Took him another 30 minutes to complete the repair, which required no new parts or soldering. By the way, he found NO CORROSON WHATSOEVER anywhere in the receiver. And by the way number two, SONY LAREDO returned my receiver with major dmagage to the chassis. After three frustrating months, I was finally able to get LAREDO to replace the part of chassis they'd broken. (They 'd counted on me not taking before and after photos.) Totally incompetent, totally unresponsive, totally dishonest (they said they'd ordered a new circuit board from Japan when they hadn't), just north of outright fraud. AVOID LAREDO AT ALL COSTS.

The clicking is the sound of a bad relay. A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under the control of another electrical circuit. There is no user solution for this. You'll have to take it to an electronics repair shop (~$150) or dump the whole unit.

Will only power-on after multiple atempts.

That problem is well known problem with a memory capacitor on the stand up board that is the control board. It is .47F 5.5 volt capacitor that resembles a button battery. The cap leaks all over this board the fluid is conductive and corrosive. So the cap must be removed and the board scrubed clean with contact cleaned and dried before replacing with new cap. the unit can run without this cap but if the power should be removed all customer settings will revert to the default. also check the copper ground screws for tieghtness.
