Question about NAD 712

1 Answer

NAD 7140 Have a NAD 7140 stereo receiver, about 20 years old. When unit is turned on, intermittently (every 3-6 seconds) lose sound. Sound returns for 3-6 seconds, then lost again. This is accompanied by a "soft clicking" noise within the unit. I opened up unit, unable to pinpoint source of clicking. This sympton happens regardless of source (CD, tuner).

The clicking is the sound of a bad relay. A relay is an electrical switch that opens and closes under the control of another electrical circuit. There is no user solution for this. You'll have to take it to an electronics repair shop (~$150) or dump the whole unit.

I get static and distortion in Stereo mode.


if you are reffering to a radio fm receiver, the issue is the signal strength is too low.so the multiplex transmission cannot be correctly unscrambled.mono reduces the cross channel interference.
use a high gain 12 db or above external vhf antenna to solve this problem

Nad 7140 fm low frequency hum


This is probably a 60 cycle hum and the problem is more likely confined to the am/fm board, there is a bad ground due to poor solder joints, broken ground wire, an open capacitor, this may not be easy to find, but it is a start.

NAD 7020e sudden volume drops, sudden distortion- intemittently


OK. I dont know the answer to your prob, but to let you konw that youre not in this alone, my amp used to occasionly lose considerable volume in one channel. this could be remedied by cracking the volume up to max for a half second or so. (Not a great solution!!) It has finally given up the ghost ...I have lost one channel and the doctor says it wont come back. Not only this but they claim that spares ceased to be sold back in the 90's. having said this I have enjoyed this amp for almost 20 years. I think its time to put it to pasture.

My Stereo integrated hi fi amp is giving a crackle when output from certain devices - like a build up of static at intervals. It is quite old NAD amp - is this a sign of transistor failure, is it worth...


This sounds like you may have a lot of solder connections on the amp board and the power supply board to be resoldered. After a few years of using the unit they can get heat stressed and develop cracks in them. The sooner you get this fixed the better. NAD is a very good brand of stereo and in most cases they are well worth getting fixed. If the stereo is used for too long it can develope some component break downs that would cost much more money to repair.

Sometimes the static or crackle sound is just the volume control or other controls like the balance or teble or bass controls that just need to be cleaned with the proper type of electronic contact cleaner.

I hope this helps, have a nice holiday season,

Hi okapi6

Use a 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA connector lead.
370a7a3.jpg Connect this to the AUX input on the back of the 7140, and away you go. Get the lead as an accessory from just about any electronics hobby store.

Receiver (tuner) signal fade-out ---heat related


The main problem with the 7140 is that there are at least 3 versions that I am aware of. The varient is based upon the serial number. Can you post that here. I will look up the info for you. I have access to some NAD stuff. Post the part designations as well (Qxx) and I'll at least get you the exact part numbers etc.

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes


Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
