Changing the type of fuses in your receiver will not change your sound quality at all.

Hi there I have recently bought a 5.1 ministry of sound surround sound system but when i connect it via optical cable to my ps3 it just makes this god awful humming sound....Im really disapointed because...

What's the model number? Did it come with a manual and did you refer to it and the PS3 to make sure what you're doing is right?

Describe the source(s) that produce the 'hum'. Perhaps what you describe as "hum" is digital bitstream noise (DTS not decoded). The source is always a player in any audio scenario.

I want a MANUAL for TELEFUNKEN (radio machine 1958) Super Heterodyne D778 WK TROT. My father own this from my grandfather and it does not tune to radio stations. Please let me know if you can help us with...

Hi, I will do the best I can to help you. I remember these radios from my childhood. There may be some things you can do to help it tune to FM radio stations. On the back of the radio, there should be 2 screws referring to an "FM" antenna. If the radio is making a "hissing" sound through the speaker, but you are not picking up any stations, then connect a single wire about 1.5 meters in length to the screw labeled "FM antenna". The other screw, if it is labeled "ground" leave with no wire attached. Make sure that the wire you use does not touch both screws. The piece of wire should act as an FM antenna. If that is the only issue, then you should pick up radio stations.
That is a very well made, good quality radio, but it is over 50 years old.
Here is a link to Telefunken in Germany. They may be able to find a manual for you.
I would suggest having someone fill out the request in English.
I hope I have helped you. Let me know.
Best Regards,

located the Telefunken website.

TX-SR803 with no sound or popping hissing on any input

It is common for a short term power surge to open up the internal fuse in the main power transformer. Without testing some components inside the unit, I really can't say for sure whether or not the unit is worth repair. I would suggest that you invest in a detailed repair estimate at an authorized Onkyo service center.

Keep us posted.

Intermitting sound problems on Onkyo SR-705

Does it only happen when its being stressed (played really loud)? Is it hot? If so, is it well ventilated and away from other heat sources?

Somewhere in here is the answer.

"The AV receiver turns off as soon as it’s turned
• The amp protection circuit has been activated.
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet immediately.
Disconnect all speaker cables and input sources,
and leave the AV receiver with its power cord disconnected
for 1 hour. After that, reconnect the power cord
and set the volume to maximum. If the AV receiver
stays on, set the volume to minimum, disconnect the
power cord, and reconnect your speakers and input
sources. If the AV receiver turns off when you set the
volume to maximum, disconnect the power cord, and
contact your Onkyo dealer."

That last sentence is misleading. I don't think they actually want you to play an active signal at MAXimum as a test. I think they mean with all sources attached and an idle one selected, like CD, crank the volume knob. If the amp is not in Protection mode you should always be able to detect some hiss up close.

For another thing, if it shuts down only with speakers attached the problem could be outbound at one or more of the speakers. I would isolate that piece somewhat before throwing my hands up and calling Onkyo. Make sure that the speaker cables are not shorting. Disconnect certain speakers and try it again until you figure out which one(s) are involved. Then it could be the speakers.

JVC RX-9010VBK receiver - premap section won't turn on normally

It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

No sound back two speakers

After using the method of last resort (RTFM) I discovered that Yamaha 7.1 amps assign an order of priority to the speakers. The surround speakers have higher priority than the surround-back speakers. I had connected the rear speakers (in a 5.1 configuration) to the surround-back speaker terminals and since nothing was connected to the surround terminals the E-6 error happed on auto-setup.

I eventually fixed this by connecting the rear speakers to the Surround L/R terminals and then, via the manual setup menu, set rear surround = NONE. This causes the amp to route the rear-surround signals to the Surround L/R terminals. The auto-configure then completed successfully.

No sound or display but power

You may have toasted the amp. You cab try reseting the microprocessor by using the hard power button and the a b speaker buttons. turn the unit off using the power button. hold the a and b speaker buttons and while holding turn the unit back on. screen should flash a couple times. release a and b buttons. good luck

Static or hiss noise

I have the same problem. Only one speaker is hissing and only for analog sources. No hissing when I select Coax.
