SOURCE: We just purchased an LG,

Actually, it doesn't have ANY digital outputs. Just what do you require one for? Name specific models and functions when replying.

Do you think the TV NEEDS optical audio from the receiver? Maybe the TV could survive on just analog audio from the video source, while the GOOD audio goes to the ARCAM since the ARCAM is going to do the hard work of managing and driving the REAL speakers.

Using satelite speakers on arcam avr100


Depending on the type of satelite speakers, Bose for example used on their own would be damaged, if your satelite plugs into a sub speaker they are protected by circuitry that controls output level when tied into the whole system, so using them on their own is not a good idea.

Arcam AVR200. Buzzing sounds in all 5.1 speakers. Gets louder as volume is turned up. Tried all sorts of different things - different power source, 1 speaker, different modes.


I had the same problem. I was told by a sales guy at a high end audio store that I should try using a 3-Prong To 2-Prong Adapter. I went and bought one. I plugged it in and no more buzzing.

you can find them at HomeDepot, Lowes or dollor store.11_25_2012_6_28_23_pm.jpg

Hi My AVR 100 just started to smoke and then the sound went completely, think this sounds major problem........is it ?


Oh yeah, re-apply power ONLY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Get it to a competent tech to evaluate it.

Generally speaking, an amp smokes or tries to protect itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.


Check for loose speaker connections as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

We just purchased an LG, LED, LCD, TV and just realised that our existing Arcam AVR 100 does not have an optical out. Does this mean we need a new amp or are there alternative solutions? Many thanks.

Receiver died out


Maybe a fuse in amplifier section is blown out already,caused by busted four darlington transistor or if this amplifier use a STK IC. This is the common problem of the amplifier,try to check this if ever a defected then replaced it with a identical rating.

Hope it may help you;

Arcam avr300 intermittent problems


I had this same problem with my Arcam AVR300. I ended up shipping mine to an Arcam repair center and they repaired it and shipped it back for under $200. The problems were cracked connection on the start relay and they replaced power supply diodes. Very well worth it and now I can enjoy it again!

Arcam AVR 200 OSD


Hi

Think you might have to use composite video out for the OSD menu to appear. Think I heard somewhere S-Video out doesn't work for.

Haven't tried yet on my own, but I will in time :)


Cheers,
Simon
