Clicks when powered on and off; only faint sound from left and right speakers

Unit was shipped by owner with no problems noted before shipping. Upon arrival, everything appears to be working however, I get only faint sound from speakers turned up at max. Also, clicking heard when unit is powered on and off. Any help is appreciated. Also is it normal for the unit to power on by use of the selector knob?

You may not be using an active input to test. Try attaching an fm antenna and using the tuner. Sone inputs are set to digial and will not make sound with the analog input. The input selector does turn it on. Saves a step.

I have an Onkyo Tsxr 577 amp. The wires on the speakers crossed and the amp stopped working. It might be in autoprotect mode and I don't know how to reset it.

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 reconnect an input and a pair of speaker wires onto the unit. If the receiver still does not turn on than you will have to bring it in for service. Turn up the volume and if the receiver doesn't shut down, power off the receiver and add another pair of speakers. Power up the unit again and turn up the volume. If it doesn't shut down, power off the unit again. Now connect all your input sources and turn on your receiver. If the unit shuts down again, your unit will need to be further serviced at an authorized Onkyo service center.

To obtain service, take or ship your Onkyo product to an Onkyo Authorized Service Center. Please also include in any mailing a contact name, address and telephone number. Please include a copy of the original sales receipt/invoice as well as a letter stating what the problem is, with your name address and phone number so the service center knows who to return the unit to. Please note, before shipping, you must contact the authorized service center to inform them that you will be sending your unit in for repair.

Z-2300 Left Speaker and port dont work

did you try plugging in the other speaker into the yellow output. If you can hear music doing that then its only your left speaker that is the problem. Try tapping the faulty speaker into the palm of your hand while connected. There might be a faulty contact to the actual cone of the speaker. I had to open mine up because i had the same problem. It turned out that it was the wires that weren't making contact. I scrapped and moved them around connected the speaker and it worked. I hope that i made some sense out of this. good luck.

HL-R4266W shuts down and a faint clicking sound can be heard

I believe I read somewhere that when you open the back cover over the lamp, there is a special little black switch that needs to be in the up position when you put the cover back on, or the TV can shut itself off randomly.

No sound from speakers

Did you just install the radio? if you did make sure you get all the right color coded to the right speaker. I don't know of any car radio would have relay install, fuse would be more like it and more safe when it come to sensitve electronics. did this problems just arised or you had for awhile and now it just quit. If the systems has been in the car for while and it just started to happens than you may have bad connect to your speakers, check both post + & - making sure they have good contact; check to make sure speakers is good and not blown. check & trace the speaker wires making sure is not cut from pinching. if the wires check out than you have an audio problem from the unit it self. most of the radio equip with 2 fuses, one internal and external. if the radio has no warranty left on it than you can open the cover up and check making sure fuse looks good. if its still under warranty, do not mess with it, take the unit back or contact manufacture company how to ship and where to ship to. I hope that help some..good luck!!

Right Front and rear speaker do not work proberly.

I ran into the same issue with an AVR 7000 after it had been shipped to me. I took the cover of and found that the left and right amplifiers have a separate power plug into them. when I plugged to "bad" side back in everything worked great.

Sound problems (none)

Step one go to your control panel and see if there is an audio device installed and the driver is there it may have been corrupted. if this is good then step two is to go to start, then right click computer, then left click properties, then left click hardware, then left click device manager, Locate the audio in the list of hardware then right click on it. A box will appear click on update driver and see if it will update, if not click on uninstall this device. Remove it. Go down the list and see if you have what is called the audio codec, If this is not there you can download the audio driver from acer and the codec from microsoft. If these solutions do not work it is going to need to be shipped to acer for repair, the sound card may have been damaged. One of the great things about acer is their customer service, Generally they will fix the problem for free just so they can keep up on their quality control. You may have to pay for shipping but it's worth it! Good luck..Be mucho blessed...Mark

Recevier,8 track casset tape

Hi, I'm looking at the schematic and service manual for the Fisher 177. Each speaker must be connected between the "Main" and "Common" terminal for sound to come out of the speakers, there is a Main, Common and Remote terminal for both left and right speakers, for a total of 8 speaker terminals. These will be separate screw or push-in terminals, NOT standard RCA jacks. Try the AM radio first, since this is the part that will probably still be working if the tape machine and turntable have failed. The Power switch must be set to either "Main" or "Main and Remote" for the speakers to work. If still no sound, rip that selector switch back and forth several times to clean the internal contacts, also try the headphone jack. If still no output, "exercise" all controls back and forth several times to clean them as well. If still no luck, your unit needs service. I can scan you a copy of the service manual for $20 if needed (sorry, I'm in the business and have to charge something). Good luck! And yes, I take in repair work from all over the country - my flat rate to fully repair that unit would be $200 plus return shipping. My website is No phone calls accepted, but the website does have my e-mail address.
