Unit will power up but no sound

Hi i have an sr-19. usually when i power it up it will click once, wait a second or two then click again and the sound will start. now it clicks once and the second click never happens. no sound comes out. there is a display and i can switch between sources but no sound. does this sound like a faulty power supply? what do these things cost to fix? (usually)

SOURCE: Marantz SR 7200

It is likely that the PA stage has developed an offset voltage in the output stage. The faulty amplifier channel can be found by progressively disconnecting the collectors of the of the power transistors until the protection fault disappears. Once the faulty channel is found the the cause of the offset has to be traced to the faulty transistor or resistor. Don't forget that if you can smell smoke or burning then there are likely to be components(esp transistors) that have been damaged by the fault.
I had a Luxman unit that destroyed 5 transistors in the output stage that was due to an open .5W resistor in the driver stage.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Audio glitch on Marantz SR-19

It's probably not heat due to the Marantz' large frame and heat-synchs.
This could simply be a mismatch of impedance. The amp is 120w per channel, so make sure the speakers can handle this. Check the impedance (ohms) of the speakers and the amp as well. Clipping can be caused by overpowering the speakers, which could damage the speakers in the long-run.
If this is only from 1 source- (i.e.- Blu-ray player or cable) then it could be digital clipping.. This Marantz can decode 96kHz PCM or normal Dolby Digital & DTS. If this is a Blu-ray it may be streaming 192kHz PCM... (but most likely the Marantz will not even attempt to play that audio)
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: A few seconds after pressing

The clicking is probably from a relay that is protecting from an overload either misinterpreted or real. Overload circuits can also fail or you have a component that is intermittently shorting causing a momentary overload.

Receiver will not turn on and is making a clicking sound TX-NR 609

This is the same problem i've had with my POS nr609. I will never buy Onkyo again.. Everyone warned me about the poor quality.. This thing worked for a year and a half, blew the amp., replaced and now another year and a half, f'd again. Save your time, buy a Denon or a Harmon Kardon. Better quality, same features.. Boat anchor here

Memory back up

There is a capacitor in the circuit for the micro. This particular capacitor is for saving the memory settings and it is most likely defective now. You will need to take it to a repair center and have them check it out for you. Replacing this capacitor should not be too expensive, but you never know how some shops are going to charge you.

I do not have the schematics for this model of Marantz or I would just tell you what capacitor it is. This capacitor acts like a battery in the unit. It only requires a very small amount of power to maintain memory settings and these capacitors work very well for that purpose. Many times you can find them on the display board. But, once again, unless you have experience working with these type of units you should not try it yourself. It is very easy to damage electronics if you do not know what you are doing.

Let me know if you need any more help.

My philips HTS 3555 stopped working. The standby light comes on sometimes but when I push the button, It turns green, the fan turns on for a second, then off, then on for a second, then off again. It then...


Your unit being stuck in standby mode is an indication that its having a power problem. Remove it's plug from the wall, wait for about 30mis, fix it back into the wall, then turn it on again. If its still stuck in standby mode, then the power supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.

The power supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not come on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Just picked up a Marantz SR-19, Everything looks like it works but I get No sound out of it. Unfortunately, there is NO remote and was wondering if there is a setting like Mute or a speaker select on the...

A Mute indicator would tell you if it was muted. Make sure no Tape or Multichannel Input are selected by mistake.

There are supposed to be jumpers across the Pre_Outs to Main In's in the back when you're NOT using external amps. You could substitute short RCA cables.

I need to connect to a Marantz SR-19 a record player How do i do it

On the back of the receiver there are connections, usually record player should be hooked up on Phono slot. If Phono is not available, trying using Aux or another slot that isn't being used. After hooking it up, remember the place you hooked it up, turn on the turntable, play a record, then hit the button on the receiver where the turntable is hooked up.

Initial setup no sound from my end

When setting up receivers or amplifiers,
Following will help to determin or correct the Problem.

1) Do not plug any sources into the unit but power cord. Then wait for 0~5 second while an ear on top of the unit. See whether the clicking Sound can be heard. ** This will tell whether the actual unit has problem or not in Power Supply or in Power Amp Circuit. If it clicks, then The Amp/Receiver is partially OK. In other word, the problem may be something else. If No Clicking Sound, then Definitely there is Problem. Meaning The unit must be serviced by Professionals. ***NOTE: This applies to Modern Receivers or Amplifiers (I would say, the units manufactured after 1980.). Vintage Units may not Apply.

2) Make Sure Speaker Selector Switch for "A" is on.

3) If Above is met (if Clicks), By visual inspection, See if the Tape Switch (Source Select) or Tape Monitor Switch is on or not (Usually Tape 1 or 2 indicator lights). This switch mu be off!! or set to tuner.

4) Many of the receivers or Amplifiers has a Loop called "Main In/Pre Out" at the back of the unit. There must be horse shoes type pins in them. Otherwise it will not Sound. (Some units has a On/Off Switch near by those jacks and have to be on position).

5) Some Units has so called "External Processor Loop" similar to #4 above and the Switch is on the Face fanel usually. (Must be Off Position)

After the Steps #1~#5, if Everthing is Corrected, then the tuner should Sound (Unless there is proble with tuner).

Now Plug in one Source at a time.
****NOTE: When plug in Tape Deck, Make sure to plug in properly. Out of Tape Deck to Play of Receiver, In of Tape Deck to REC of Receiver. Otherwise (if Reversed), the Sound will be muted or No Sound Will Occure.

Center channel goes muffled after a while of use.

It is likely that something overheating is causing the problem, but nothing should be overheating. Cleaning won't hurt and may help but it is likely to require repair of the faulty component, perhaps a failing capacitor or amplifier.

No Sound

well, if it powers up, youve still have hope// check and see if you can see a fuse holder at back of stereo... or go to a radio shack or electronis place and get whats called 'contact cleaner' ( may go by a different name, make SURE you know that the salesperson knows what your talking dont have to buy the pricey stuff, but dont get the cheapest either.) then UNPLUG stereo, make sure its not hot ( dont have it on for a long time before working on it) then pull out the knobs on the front ( the volume,left/right,etc) spray a LITTLE bit into the stereo where the plugs go.dont drench it, a little goes a long way) after spreying it in, turn the knob back and forth so it gets to all the points.... make SURE its dry before plugging it back in, you can tell if you see any moisture where you sprayed.( another reason, not to spray much) i usually let my stereo and tvs dry over night before trying them.while your waiting, may as well take a cloth and clean the face, get any cruddies off... good luck
