    same problem. Out of the blue I now get a loud buzz rather than the radio. The radio can be heard in the background. It does not seem like a reception issue as it is the same volume on any station - very annoying.

I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

SOURCE: Centre speaker stops functioning

Is the audio for the center channel driven by its own amp? No other channels on it or affected?

Assuming you're not cranking it up to "11" to rattle the walls...

I think what you're hearing is the protection relay dropping out - removing power from the output stages of the amp when the amp thinks something is amiss. If it turns on OK after being OFF for a while and repeats the loop you probably have a heat issue.

A solid click OFF that is not resettable would possibly be a short in the speaker path - shorted speaker wire or speaker.

Check the amp to see if it was hot to the touch or getting warmer up to the point it clicked off.

Is it ventilated properly with no heat-producing components below it? Clean out its vents and make sure it can breath. If it has a fan make sure it's working and has good airflow.

It has a dedicated sub out. you need a phono connection on one end for the amp and the other end must have a compatable connection to your sub.

You will need a phono connection to the amp from your TV. You can utilise a scart lead that has phono outputs however a TV with audio outs (the red and white leads) is the default option.

SOURCE: Subwoofer hum from STR-DH800

That points pretty much to a bad shield on the cable. Have you tried another one? Another thing to try is to rotate the AC power cord on the sub (if it has one). Sorry, too lazy to look it up.

SOURCE: Sony STR-DE475 receiver ''protect'' problem

The relay or relays that click disconnect the receiver from the speaker terminals so that no dc voltage can burn out the speakers. More than likely the power output transistor(s) are faulty. Look at the relay(s), determine the input and output connections. The inputs come from the output power transistor and emitter resistors area, the output of the relay(s) connect to the speaker terminals. Check for dc voltage on the input contacts in the range of 30-60 volts possibly. If dc voltage is found there then you have bad outputs, caps or emitter resistors. A word of caution -troubleshooting at this level requires advance knowlege of electronics, do not attempt this with out onsite help from a experience tech.

My Denon Audio precision am fm DRa 435R Reciever will not stay on station very long. After about 30 or sometimes 45 minutes it get off station. I have it set to a local FM Station, 97.9 and it plays good...


OK,this is a fairly common problem with digital tuners, I get them from time to time in my shop, you see, what is happening is the voltage that's used to tune the set, usual;y stays rock solid, your device however is drifting off station due to this voltage changing, usually it is in the powers supply or the actual tuner itself. It can be bad capacitors, bad IC's, bad transistors, bad tuner module. Sometimes it maybe a "Dry Joint" too.
The only fix is either a replacement PSU or Tuner or indeed maybe both? One simply cannot tell exactly without examining the unit.

You need to take this unit into a Denon repair center and ask for a "Quote" as to costings etc. Once appraised of that one can proceed from there?
Contact a Denon head or local office and ask them there, for a referral to an authorised service center.

The phono works, but i get no sound when tuner on


This usually means that the tuner is not getting sufficient reception for the station you are trying to listen to.

Receivers come with cheap wire loop antennas try upgrading to a powered FM antenna available online or at your local Radio Shack.

Hope that helps

My Sony STR-DG500 wont turn on just clicks once and nothing.


Sounds like faulty psu (pwer suply unit) Amp is going into protection mode. Disconnected all speaker and av wires (only power) turn up volume and see if it stays on. If not psu, sounboard or volume function faulty. If on, connect one speaker L or R. Go to tuner mode to tuned radio station an listen for sounds. If on, connect speakers and av cables one by one and test each one on its own until amp switches off, Investigate from there were problem is. Make sure speakerwires is not shorting out.

Problem to find radio station on tuner?


Hello,

FM ( at least in the USA) only goes 90.1-90.3-90.5 and so on.
This is how stations are separated.
There are no stations on 90.4 or 101.6 and so on

Ferguson FRG-R121D digital radio doesn't work. Only works on fm stations and then very poorly. Takes a long time to switch on with continuous clicking noise.


Hi,
I had the same problem and solved it. Mine took about 10mins to turn on (constant buzzing and beating before this). 
The problem is the 1000uf and the 220uf capacitors on one of the circuit boards near the front of the device. I replaced these with new ones and problem sorted.
So if you know what your doing, take it apart and solder in some new caps. If not...maybe get a new one!

Tuner Omits No Sound - Onkyo TX-SR605 7.1 Channels Receiver


Make sure your receiver is hooked up to proper AM and FM antennae. Try switching to AM, scan stations. If you hear AM static and/or weak signals the problem could be antennas are not hooked up. FM has AFT which blocks out weak or noisey stations and you wont hear anything without ant.

One speaker buzz when cold


It works fine for a couple of minutes the starts to hum. If you turn up the volume it masks the noise but is till audible, also the video switching cuts out. after examining the components I have seen some heat discoloration in the power suply area and believe it to be power for the video board. disconecting the ribbon cable form the video board the hum goes away, and so does any video wich does'nt matter for me because my monitor1.gif does all the HD video1.gif switching. hope this may help with some noise problems.

Losing sound in certain modes


I get the same problem with my Nakamichi, but it never bothered me much, since i can't notice any quality drop, besides, its only radio. I remember it happens only on certain stations though, which leads me to believe it might have to do with the broadcast itself which oscillates and varies in amplification from station to station, and is affected by weather and geography. If it really botheres you, try getting extra juice amp for your tuner from some specialy electronic store. Good luck
