Question about RCA RT2660R Receiver

Receiver frying noise

This receiver has recently began making a frying noise several minutes after it has been turned on. The noise can be heard over the speakers, but not if all of the speakers wires are disconnected. The noise continues to get louder as the unit stays on.

    My unit does not seem to have cooling fans, though it does have a cooling tower that runs the length of the unit behind the front panel. I cannot locate any fans!

    My unit does not have the cooling fans that you speak of, or if it does they are hidden from my view. It does have a cooling tower of sorts that runs the width of the unit right behind the face panel, but no cooling fans. Any other ideas?

I have the same unit and discovered there's 2 cooling fans inside.
one is not working at all and the other is turning very slow.
With that said I'd open the cover and see if it's the fans.

    Sorry, I guess yours is slightly different than mine.

    I have tracked down 2 new fans for mine and I'm in good shape.

    I have an RT2600 model and the fans are worn out making that frying noise. Any idea where I can get the correct fans for my unit? I live in Canada.

While watching tv we heard a pop and the receiver stopped working. Power button does nothing. We've opened it up but can't see anything that looks burnt or fried...


It could be a relay that burnt out, they usually dont show any signs of damage, or the motherboard could be fried too with no signs of damage eather! Hope this helps!

Philips HTS3450 - high pitched humming noise until warmed up


Jeremy,

Read one of my posts:
I used a hairdryer and blew hot air into the grill on the bottom of the subwoofer enclosure which reduced the delay time from ~1hr to 5 minutes. (The high pitched noise was still there for about 1-2 minutes)

I have recently acquired a old Denon AVR3801 Home cinema Receiver. I have plugged it all up and switched it on, but although the system seems to work quite nicely, the amp itself makes a buzzing/humming...


The solution of leaving the thing on all the time would certainly work, but most of the time a buzzing sound inside a relatively robust audio amplifier is being caused by the huge transformer coil in the thing. Or wires that are in close proximity thereto.

In some ways, you're blessed that the buzzing is coming from the unit itself, and not through the loudspeakers.

Clicking noise from Onkyo TX-SR606 during television broadcast


I seem to recall a sub-menu setting having to do with "auto shut off" or something like that.

My receiver is packed up, ready to take to Fry's, or I would find that submenu for you.

High pitched noise


I am about to post a in depth guide about how to fix this problem. It's because a capacitor inside the TV has blown which causes the buzzing high pitched noise. It's really easy to fix however and only costs about £1 / $2 to sort out.

You can read a similar guide here http://www.fixya.com/support/r741402-polaroid_flm_373b_lcd_tv_black_screen but I will shortly be uploading a guide on the buzzing problem!

Audio Video Receiver Problems


It sounds like the center channel isn't plugged into the correct speaker output. Unhook the speakers and reattach them while paying VERY close attention to which jacks you're putting them in. Report back with results.

Protect


You may have shorted the speaker wires. Remove all wires from the output connections and make doubly sure no strands are left there. Turn volume to zero and turn the receiver on. If the problem persists, you probably fried the output stage. Have it repaired.
