Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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?

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: power short/ bad fuse?

I had the very same problem. The dreaded blinking power light. I also dabble in electronics. I found that all that was wrong with mine was one bad cap. There are two 1000uF(microfarrid) 16V(volt) capacitors in the mid section of the power board, right next to each other. One was bulging on the top. They have an "X" on top. I replaced it with a 1000uF 35V capacitor from Radioshack. They did not have a 16 volt. (Never go down to a lower voltage) The capacitor I got was larger than the old one but I gently moved over the parts around it and got in there. After replacing this one capacitor, which I got for $1.72 tax and all, I plugged it up and no more problems! It works great! I hope this helps someone else.

SOURCE: Worked fine for a year, now not recognized or functioning

I had the same issue- light was blinking from red to blue, could not get my computers (I have a Mac and a PC) to recognize the drive, sounded like the drive wasn't powering up...

I replaced the Acom drive enclosure with a new one (CP Technologies). I don't know if the drive enclosure or power supply was at fault-- but it wasn't the internal drive. Plugged it in and amazingly all my data was back. For thirty bucks it was far less than sending out the drive to a 'data recovery' expert!

KR-V6050 I cannot get audio to work on radio, video or any other setting. Also the red standby light stays on all the time, even when the power switch is turned off. Alan


Check the input / output connections are in the correct places. The red standby will stay on when the unit is off showing that it is ready for use. To confirm, turn the power off at the wall. The red light should go out after a few seconds.

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

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.

I have a Kenwood KRF v5200d audio video control center that worked great for 2 years . It is just out of warranty and is now giving problems. It turns on for about 15 seconds and then cut out and goes into...


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
