Question about Emerson NR305TT CD Shelf System

1 Answer

My Emerson NR305TT will not produce sound. Turn table works, CD Player works, FM Tuner Works, everything works except no sound comes from the unit. The on switch and volume seem to work as I hear a faint hum from the speakers when I turn the unit on. Any ideas on what the problem might be or where I can get it repaired?

You have one of 3 problems:1) bad solder joints in the amplifier or preamp section 2)defective output transistors/ICs in the power amp or 3)missing or incorrect voltages to the amp section. If the unit has a headphone jack plug in a headset. If you have sound then everything is OK thru the preamp section and your problem is in the power amp. Any competent repair shop should be able to solve this one easily.

I think you might have fault in the FM tuner section. Most of these are done by a single IC, replacing that will cure the fault I suspect.

Everything OK, except no sound from the FM tuner.

You may have many different issues in the FM circuitry. Do any other FM stations come in?

It sounds like you are running your audio through an amplifier. If so, you are probably using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on). The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Marantz SR870 tuner not working

Make sure your FM antena connection is good. A receiver will not pick up an FM signal without an antena. Even a small piece of wire will work to test. If the Tuner section is bad, an external tuner can always be connected to an Aux input. Due to cost, it may not be cost effective to repair this unit.
Hope this helps.

No sound on coming out of speakers and theres no wires touching everything looks like it works fine

Make sure you didn't accidentally hit the mute button.
You should always test sound with a CD, testing sound via AM/FM will produce interference and almost no sound when between stations, also don't to forget to connect the antenna lead.

Check that the speakers are wired correctly.
Check that the sound controls are adjusted properly, i.e. Balance, Fade etc.

Good luck...

Jensen head unit VM9311TS no sound from CD

Should wire HU's Power Const to Amp's Remote On. Instead you wired HU's Power Antenna to Amp's Remote On. So the stock amp got triggered only in radio mode.
