Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

I have had a goodmans ghc 56 pro now for about three years and have had great pleasure using it. where the red standby light is, that started to flicker and the device stopped working. i changed the fuse in the plug but no difference. is the repair going to be expensive or should i just but another goodmans surround sound product?

SOURCE: Center and Surround Channels Inop

Even if it were a fuse, a blown fuse is merely a symptom not the solution. From the symptoms you've described the AMPs are the most likely problem. They are mounted to a large aluminum heat sink usually about center of the main board. There are several and they are a task to remove and replace because the entire board has to be removed... However, it's not too costly a repair and for a qualified shop something that can be done in a couple of hours - including testing. If you like the receiver get it fixed. Compared to most digital receivers today it's probably cheaper to fix this one than buy another. And a good repair shop will add years more life to that unit... Hope this helps. Bill

SOURCE: No sound

The only fuse on you stero is for power it's a 6.3 amp 125 volt it'on the main board. I have the sam problem I found a resistor on the board that controls the power amps on the heat sink. A lab here charges 35 dollar bench charge and if you want them to fix it they will apply it to the job. I own the same model and i went to circuit city they had lot of different system on sell. So before i put that in to an old system i'll buy another one

Hello meml,

Since you mention that there is no standby light at all, the problem could be related to the receiver's main power supply, which is not uncommon for a unit of this age.
Now, if you decide to take the unit to a repair shop, do not let the cost of repairing the unit be the only factor that determines if you bring it back to life or to use it as a door stop.
Consider the replacement cost compared to the repair cost, also, have in mind that newer receivers can supply more output power per channel and have more advanced decoding technologies among other features. Hope this helps your decision. Let me know.

SOURCE: 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
condition.

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.

Might be over heating. Make sure you don't have anything sitting directly on top of it. I even put a little fan blowing outward at the back of my system to keep it cool.

SOURCE: My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?

if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

Receiver keeps going to standby


I don't know about the newer receivers but this sounds like an arching OFF/ON power switch that was a problem on Pioneer receivers years ago. I would bypass the switch and see what happens.

1. Unplug unit from wall.
2. Jumper two wires going to off/on switch using alligator clip with insulated boots on clips.
3. Plug amplifier into disconnected circuit breaker/fuse protected AC strip.
4. Plug AC strip into wall outlet, turn AC strip switch ON and see if problem disappears.

Denon AVR-1908 won't power on


Are you getting a standby light at all? Is it flashing? Do you here a click when you plug the unit in? If the answer is no to all of these then you blew a fuse. If you do have soome sort of standby light, then your set is in protect mode. More than likely for a blown channel. If no lights, but you ar egetting a click, you could have a bad transformer. Use a DVM and see if it is open or not. Good luck

i'm not the perfect expert in this but did you try removing all speaker,rca,s video, etc from the back and seeing if something maybe back feeding to the receiver. the red light blinking usually means its detecting a short somewhere and it goes in a fail safe mode to prevent more damage. if it stays on with everything disconnected the problem is with something else. try them one at a time to isolate the problem. hope this helps thank you.

Denon AVR-1100 receiver "PROTECT" mode


replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. i had the exact same problem with mine and once i replaced the capacitors it powered up and stayed on and worked perfect.
these capacitors tend to fail as they're of poor quality.
this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?

Denon AVR-1508


sounds like overload protection
turn the volume all the way down, then turn it on
if that doesn't do it you may have a short in one of the speaker lines - try disconnecting them one at a time
