Question about Aiwa AV-D77 Receiver

Sudden failure to power up

A few days ago my receiver failed to switch on when I hit the "power" button on either the unit face or the remote (the only response I could get was the faint clicking sound the reciever has always made when being switched on). However, after some frustrated repitition, I was able to switch the unit on and for a few days everything was fine. Then again last night the same issue occured. Nothing in the troubleshooting guide comes to close to describing my issue. I know there is power going to the unit, as the red light on the front remains lit as though it were still in Standby. The unit is wired into the same surge protector I've had it on for over a year and every other device plugged into it (TV, Xbox, DVD) works fine.

Re: Sudden failure to power up

I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick: To reset If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction occurs, reset the unit as follows. 1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power. 2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled. If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out step 2.

Denon receiver problems

Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.

I have a pioneer vsx d608 and the remote works only for the power and muting. I pushed some buttons on the face of the receiver and the all functions worked with the remote (not sure why). I turned it off...

I'm pretty sure the front face buttons have nothing to do with the intermittent success or failure of the remote to work - unless by some chance a given momentary control is 'stuck' on.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:

They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Hi, our RXV465 was working great until a few weeks ago. We were watching a movie, and all of a sudden the movie sound switched to radio static. No errors were shown on the display, and we have gone...

According to your description, there is the high possibility that the button for one of your audio calibrations was pressed on the remote. Frequently referred to on many models as 'level', pressing this button will enable a built in test signal called wide band pink noise, sounding exactly like radio frequency noise. Pressing it again or repeatedly will resolve the problem.

However, if what you are experiencing is not just a pure static-like tone but also your intended audio with it, then it is a different problem that the root cause of may not be in the receiver.

Only the front speakers failing? All others ok?

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

Go back to basics, open the manual and use test tones for speaker verification.

Does this normally happen if you press a few buttons or settings faster in succession? If so then maybe the receiver can't keep up with multitasking or what you would call processing power so maybe just try to not select functions as fast and give it a few seconds in between changing settings before switching to another. my cellphone and receiver will also do this because of lower quality components used in manufacturing. A lot of company's now days to compete with price points are cutting corners so certain components are lacking to keep up with demand of other components in the system.

You may be on the right track. Does the unit feel unusually warm when it dies? Keep it out of direct sunlight (this is ALL in the manual), away from humidity and moisture, avoiding drafts, dust and vibration and make sure it is well ventilated.

Also make sure you're not slaving anything that draws a lot of power from its convenience outlets on the back.

Need to give a FULL RESET in a MARANTZ SR5004 RECEIVER

Switch off the unit. Then hold down Sorround, Exit, Memory & Clear buttons all together and then switch on the power. This should work.
