Question about Aiwa AV-D77 Receiver

1 Answer

Issue with the power. Reset doesn't work.

Power button does no more than click. When I use the power-enter buttons to reset, sometimes it goes into this repeating clicking cycling the power about every 1 sec.

Is there a simple solution (i.e. changing out a transistor or latching relay)? Or... do I just generate another piece of junk?

Thanks for your time.

    Thank you and I would appreciate the help. I do have the service manual downloaded. What I meant by junk is that if I cannot repair this receiver, then I will be generating another piece of garbage. I would much rather prefer not to generate the refuse and keep the beautiful Aiwa receiver. I've used it for years and have had much pleasure out of it.

    Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

    I have had the same problem for years. i don't have a fix for it but i do have a way to avoid it. in order to turn it on you have to press ''enter'' and ''power'' simultaneously. The clock then appears and needs to be set. set it and then press enter. then press power before it shuts down (within about 1-3 secs). Now it should be on. now you have to turn off economy mode (power saver). by doing this when you turn the receiver off, it will power down to a sleep mode and dispaly only the clock. this way it never completely shuts down(ie. relay stays contacted). this way you'll only have to curse and swear everytime the power goes out or the unit is unplugged. hope this helps

How to reset denon avr4800 thx receiver?

These are the following steps to reset your Denon receiver:
1. Save the information currently stored in your Denon receiver, such as device commands and multi-zone controls. Some Denon receivers can control multiple rooms and each room needs to be setup properly to provide the correct controls. If the receiver was installed professionally it may be best to contact the installer before resetting the device.

2.Press the "Power" button or the "On/ Standby" button to shut off the receiver. On some receivers it is best to press the button on the device instead of the remote as the remote will normally put the receiver in standby mode. Ensure the display and all other lights on the device are off. Do not unplug the Denon receiver as it will not reset.

3.Press the "Power" button and at the same time press two buttons on the front panel, which are determined by the model Denon you own. Most receivers identify the two buttons inside the user's manual, while some older Denon receivers require you contact Denon for the right button combination. For example, some Denon models require the "Standard" and "DSP Simulation" buttons to be pressed simultaneously.

4.The display will start flashing at about one second intervals. Release the two buttons. Turn on the receiver by pressing the "Power" or the "On/ Standby" button to verify the previous settings and saved radio stations have been erased. If the interface does not flash, the reset was not complete and needs to be re-done. Re-enter the previous settings to ensure there are no further issues with the receiver.

I touched speaker wire from the receiver to hot wires on my subwoofer and everything shut down, now the receiver will not power on. When I push the on button I get a click noise, but if I keep trying to...

When the speaker wires were shorted it would have damaged the output and so there is a short in the output circuit thereby the amplifier goes into the protect mode. So remove the power and the speakers, reset and test again without the speakers. If the amp goes to the protect mode then you need to have assistance to check the boards within for a short. sometimes it is difficult to probe for a voltage check and so will need jigs to test.
Check the output drivers for short using a multimter, check for the rail voltage to the outputs or there can be a power issue.

The power light blinks red! it can't turn On!

"If your 8002/7002 goes into protective mode (red power light flashing at two times per second) the receiver will not operate until it is reset. First try the reset procedure on the bottom right corner of page 81 in the manual.

If that doesn't work, press and hold the following three buttons on the front panel until the unit resets:

Pure Direct
7.1 Ch input

This latter procedure is not in the manual and I can't fathom why, as it can save the inconvenience of a trip to the service center."

Reciever wont stay powered on

I fear that there's no easy fix. Sounds like the power supply or the board which controls it is bad. If you're not an electronics repair person, it'll need to go to a repair shop.

Power reset

that is actually a sign that the reciever is bad. it usually means the amp is blown. Not in the sense that it wont work. But its overheating and thats where the problem lies. In your case it could be causeing a short. for this reciever it only costs 130 for the pcb board that goes bad. I know no one likes to hear that there stuff is broken. But when i worked for Square Trade i seen a few dozen of these units come through and it was always the amp which can still be serviced by yamaha. -Thanks Nate

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.
