NAD T763 shutting down in certain modes

When listening to channel music (in DVD mode) or satellite TV, the sound from my front speakers shuts off and I have to turn the reciever off and back on again to get sound again. I am using a seperate 2channel amp to power my mains, and I had that unit serviced to make sure it was OK after a problem with one of my speakers. The receiver does just fine when in 7.1 EXT surround mode and plays all night with not a hint of problem. It only shuts down when in 2 channel mode. On two occasions, it also froze up and would not respond to remote control commands or by pushing buttons on the unit directly. NAD technical support had me do a factory reset, but the problem persists. I need to know if it is a receiver problem or an amp problem. I am fairly certain it is the receiver, but am looking for a second opinion. Also, switching from one "mode" (DVD, Satellite,EXT 7.1) there is an audible "thump" from my front speakers. Please help!

SOURCE: Right surround channel not working in some modes

I had the same problem with the right channel.    It turned out to be a broken wire inside the receiver; it can be found connecting from the main PCB to the card for the 5.1 board.    After repairing the broken wire, it has worked fine.   


The harness connects the 5.1 low level signals to the board which are then redistributed to the amplifier section.     It is a bundle of wires in gray casing and with red, black and white wires (with shielding).


Find the offending wire, repair or replace and it should be fixed.


Hope this helps

Have you tried doing a factory reset?

1. With unit powered ON, press the VIDEO and TONE DEFEAT buttons.
2. Display will show "AH RESET DONE".
3. Power off (from rear panel switch) and back on.

SOURCE: NAD T-763 receiver. cannot get

Have you looked at the manual? There is no internal source that would produce 7.1 audio other than the test tones. Attach a multichannel source according to ITS manual.

SOURCE: How to reset a NAD L54 DVD reciever?

This is the technical solution, you have to open the unit:
Locate IC33 and connect pin 6 to ground, connect power, and then remove the ground connection at pin 6.
The unit will then boot up in factory default.

All the speaker outlets seem to work fine, except the fronts, all will work, but if i plug the fronts in, all the sound then tends to just fade away, and then i have nothing, no sound. i can't figure...

I would:
1- First make sure you are properly testing using a reliable source, such as a CD Player or itunes. 2- Make sure the Listening Preset is not on Dolby Pro Logic. Make sure it is on Stereo mode and see if the problem persists.
What usually happens is that when listening to 2ch (Left and Right) Audio such as Television or Music and Dolby Pro Logic is on as a preset, Dolby Pro Logic analyzes both Stereo tracks, tries to detect the voices (center channel), ambient sounds (surround and fronts) and processes the signals into a 5.1 or 6.1 System. You tend to get a fading effect when Dolby Pro Logic is selected and listening to an old VHS, DVD or even music.
To remove a preset, make sure you select the Stereo button at the bottom left of the remote to pan through the options.
Hope this helps

How do we listen to aCD in 5 channel suround sound without having the TV on we can only get straight sound. We have a Yamaha RX-V365 av receiver.

Do you listen to audio CDs via a CD player or DVD player? Pure audio CD is only 2-channel, so either TV or the DVD player is doing the mix to 5 channels. But you can choose the sound mode via remote - there should be modes like 5ch/7ch stereo, where the same signal is going to all speakers (I you this mode for listening to radio sometimes).

Receiver powers on then shuts down. Any mode (CD AUX,VIDEO,etc) will cause same result. Sometimes FM mode will keep receiver on for longer. Once speakers are connceted, shut down happens no matter which...

If it's not happening when your speakers are disconnected, your problem is not in the receiver, it's either a wire touching at the terminals on the rear of the receiver, or a bad voice coil or crossover in your speaker. If you re connect the speakers and it immediately cuts out, disconnect all speakers and reconnect one by one testing the receiver each time until your receiver shuts off or remains on with all wires connected and you've fixed the problem. If it cuts out, disconnect the problem speaker at the speaker and test again. If it stays on, problem is in the speaker, if it still cuts out, problem is in the wire. Hope this helps. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot some more.

T763 Dead

This happens to many of those model. The problem is usually on the power board (if looking down into with the control panel facing your belly... it's the cluster of boards to the left, front of the unit. Look in the top, under the connectors. YOu sometimes have to dissassemble the thing alot to gety to it. Also, on the main board, under all the "cards" (the input/video circuit boards) and near the front (at the back of the cards) tere are heat sink mounted regulators that often need to be re-soldered.

The whole process is a pain, and can take a few hours to do properly, so most repair companies will charge accordingly. Yeah, it's a shame they made them like they did. If it's working, it's a good unit. Aside from these common failures.

Onkyo TX-DS474 Receiver shuts down after Standby mode.

It's going into a protect mode. The amp is probably shorted out. Disconnect the spkrs and turn it on. If it still shuts off, it's the amp, if not, it's the spkrs.

Volume and multi channel output issue

Hi there. Are you familiar with board level repair for such products ? Your problem is most likely hardware. Either some of the final output transistors are fried, or it's a dsp problem, a regulator, a diode, a transistor in the circuit.. it could be a lot of things. But if everything was working fine and it quit someday without a change in the system's setup, it really looks like an hardware issue ! Do you have a way in the manual, that sets factory defaults, a kind of reset ? A lot of such units do have that. Try to unplug/interchange speakers as well, a shorted speaker could make the amp go nuts as well, but i wouldn't bet on it. Still, i'd check that out. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

Not getting sound from right speaker

How do you have the audio hooked up from the TV set? If its s video or RCA plugs? If it is switch them around and see if it swaps channels that goes out . If it does then the output cable or the jack is bad. If your using an HDMI ir a scart cable. The cable or connections could be bad. Unplug it and reinsert it or while the units on mover it around and see if the audio comes back on.
