Question about Sony STR-DG710 Receiver

1 Answer

Broken Power Switch Circuit Board

I ordered the unit off of ebay. Well the seller did a very poor job of packing the unit for shipping (he used news paper to hold it in place). When it arrived, the top corner where the power button is was crushed and you could see the inside. Upon closer inspection, a corner of the circuit board was broken off. I've already gotten the money back from my order, but i would still like to fix it. I've contacted Sony to see if they'll even tell me a part number, but I doubt they will. I'm continuing to use the internet to see if I can find anything, but would appreciate any help that people could provide. Thank you.

    I just thought I would post some pictures of the problem board. Sony contacted me last night and gave me a link to the parts center. I called them and after about 10 min, they told me that was one of the parts they didn't have. Then I thought, "Why wouldn't the remote work?" and "why didn't I think of that sooner?" Now I just have to find it.

    So, I found the remote. Low and behold it works. Looks like I dont need the power switch after all.

Dont feel bad, i had the same exact problem from ebay not packing rite, a broken Circuit board is a combination of wiring and components that provides a path for the flow of electricity, since its broke the flow is probly disrupted, did you try to poke the lil button witch the switch would hit an turn it on, try an push the lil black rubber dot with a tooth pic? it still mite come on if a lil piece was broken long as no other were. if it dont then it needs replaced, an sony prob wount return ur anwser since this world revolves around money, bet yet again they could be nice enough, try that its worth a shot at it, if you havnt already

Sherwood RX-4105 Amp won't power on.


You will have to check the fuse.There probably is a fuse next to where the power cord goes into it. It will look like a little round black cap. It may be necessary to push on it and twist it in order to get it out. It will be marked on the case with a number followed by the letter "A", that being the fuse rating in amperes.

Speaker switch .will only activate speakers if I kep the switch pressed all the time

These unit had a habit of getting broken solder connections between the board that the speaker switch and power button are on and the display board. Would have to repair these bad connections for unit to work right. Pretty easy soldering job if you have any experience.

Just purchased a used Onkyo TX NR906 7.1 reciever from ebay. Mint condition, looks brand new. But, will not power up. The power cord seems to be loose, moves up and down. There is only a clicking noise...

This isn't anything you can fix and it's certainly nothing that you want to pay to have fixed because it's probably going to give you more problems than it's worth. Troubleshooting implies that you made a mistake somewhere along the way. You didn't. This item is damaged and defective. This is called DOA. Contact the seller and try to get them to take it back. If the seller gives you a hard time, immediately file a dispute with eBay and PayPal and insist that the seller pick up the cost for shipping it back (That thing is like 40 - 50 pounds, right?).
For giggles, I looked up the receiver on eBay and looked for it under completed listing listings. Only one came up for $501.00. Is that the one your purchased and is that why you're so hesitant to return it because it's a $2200 receiver? Here's the thing to consider: If that is yours, in its current state, you have a $500 paper weight sold to you by a seller with a FB rating of 2. That does not bode well and the power issue is probably not the only issue. If it were me, I'd say forget it. But hey, if you think it's worth having someone take a look then by all means.
Regardless, even if that's not yours, I think it's safe to say that getting an item that expensive on eBay that is DOA is pretty much cause to return it without hesitation.

My z9 has died and a repair man said the there is a chip on the mother board that is faulty and was easier to replace the mother board rather than replacing the chip. Quoted over $4000 so it is cheaper to...

This is a seven year-old receiver with 7 year-old technology. It will be far more cost-effective to upgrade to a contemporary unit. Also, if you are insistent on having this unit, you can buy a replacement one for $1100 on Amazon.
As far as the mobo is concerned, you'll need the part and I was unable to find it online but you can order it through Yamaha's website if you know the part number. If you don't know the part number you can call Yamaha at 888-892-6242 for it. Before you consider doing that, though you should get the service manual to see how much of a project it entails. It's available all over the Internet as a PDF download, a seller on eBay has it for $7.50.

Would any one be able to get a part #, cost for the regulator, for my Panasonic SA-CH94M? I believe this is the culprit with the F61 error code. Thanks!

the F61 error on panasonic home theatres can mean 1 of 4 things, its either you have the wrong speakers plugged into the wrong port (yes apparently this matters check correct speaker placement), the fans are not working at all or working poorly (simply clean with circuit board cleaner or replace fan you may have 1 or 2) if none of the above then you have the worst one wich is one of your power amplifier IC chips somewhere on the main circuit board has died (good luck fixing that one) obviously varies from model to model this is based on th SA-HT545 and the SA-PT450. Sometimes a new HDMI cable will solve this issue.

If the cables are good, then the easiest possible fix would be to clean or replace the rear electric fan. I had the same problem and after replacing the fans my unit works like new. I called panasonic to order the fans because these type of fans you can not buy out of any store. The rear fan is also an upgrade to a better bigger fan. Part numbers are: L6FAJCCH0007 $19.12 (side fan) RFKZHT540E $28.35 (Rear fan) total shipped to me was $61.43.

Happy Holdays! Dont forget the feedback! Thanks!

Lost the remote and the power button is broken (pushed in)

The part number is V2465500 Button case RXV595. This will fit the RX-V995. I ordered and replaced my own recently.

You can order it through Vance Baldwin, Herman's Electronics or or Yamaha Parts Dept.

Cost is approx $10 plus shipping.

Note: The is one "hidden" screw retaining the button case that goes thru the circuit board for the front panel from inside the unit. You will need an offset phillips screwdriver to get to it. Be patient and good luck.

Reciever won't power up

HI, this amp may need to be reset. also, i would check the voltage selector on the back side to make sure the switch is set to 110-120v. once this is done, you will need to reset the microcomputer. here is the procedure.

The microcomputer may malfunction (unit cannot be operated,
or shows an erroneous display) if the power cord is unplugged
while the power is ON, or due to some other external factor. If
this happens, execute the following procedure to reset the
microcomputer and return the unit to its normal operating

Procedure- Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, then
plug it back in while holding down the POWER key.

ok, after this reset, if your receiver isn't operational, it may have serious damage to its power board.

Broken receiver

I bought my AV-DV75 from Best Buy about 10 years ago and it still works. However it did stop working a while back. I don't know why. I alsmost threw it away. But I unplugged it for a couple of days, then plugged it back up and it came back on. It is still working. Maybe that will work for you.

my center speaker quit working recently. If you decide to sell your AIWA speakers will you please email me?
