SOURCE: Marantz support question

Hi I had my SR7200 in the shop also. The 1st time they said that they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I brought it home and had the same problem. Brought it back and they had it for about 1 month and finally called and said that they talked with Marantz and the DSP needed to be replaced. They said that they would have to send it to Mararntz and it would cost about $150

SOURCE: No Sound

Called Onkyo and here is the solution they gave me.

1. Turn on unit.

2. Press and hold VIDEO 1 button.

3. While pressing VIDEO 1, press Speaker A button.

4. You should see "CLEAR" on the display for a second and it will go on stand-by mode.
5. Turn on the unit and check if sound is back.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Marantz SR-18EX; Front left channel crackles

The f-l channel of the sr18, & sr18ex & sr19 is a common failure location due to the heating and cooling over the years. The crackling an/or distortion, is most commonly due to the amplifier going into a high idle, or d.c. offset that can no longer be controlled by the adjustment potentiometers on the board. usually the two 2sc3200 transistors become unstable, and as well a 47mfd and a 470 mfd elect. caps nearby. Also distortion is caused by one or more of the zener and germanium diodes all grouped near the big dual ceramic white resistor. The amp block is held in by six screws. first remove the cross bracket, then cut the cable tie free from the hole on the board. Ten screws hold the top board on, the pull the boards apart from the connectors. before replacing it, resolder ALL of the connector pins to BOTH boards.

How do I hook up 2 preamps for the front right and left 1 for each channel on a Marantz SR6007? Can I even do it or am I just allowed 1 preamp for the fron right and left channel?

Hi Mark,
One can hook-up as many peamps as desired to the SR6007 either as sources or destinations. How to connect external preamps to the SR6007 depends on what you wish to achieve.
The SR6007 already has its own internal preamps.
You could, if you are not careful, burn the AVRs input circuitry by adding external preamps as "sources". Also, not much improvement in SQ could be gained by external preamps connected to the SR6007's preouts becuase any signals that come out of these have already been processed (or distorted?) by the SR6007s internal preamps.

Hi I brought sr8001 receiver I had connected the same to all speakers I connected to Homi cable then i switched on the amp, from left side of amp there was some burn smell was cmg. Just I had switched off....

It sounds like you may have damage to the capacitors, fuses, or other printed board circuitry.

What type of voltage (current) was this system plugged into? 110 Volts or 220?

How do i attatch preamp to marantz sr9200 for phono

If you are talking about a phono preamp, take the output rca cables from the turntable, "red and white" plug it into the preamp input, "labled" next take a red and white cable wire male ends, "3 to 6" feet long, and plug the one end in the output of the preamp, "labled" and finally plug the remainder into the AUX input of the Marantz receiver matching the colour codes so the left and right channels don't get mixed up, you now should be good to go.

I want to connect my bravia lcd to my marantz sr770 i can only get two chanel sound from my two front spearker i cant get the surround working

Let's break this into little pieces. Disregarding the TV, does the Marantz otherwise provide multichannel sound?

How is the TV-related audio getting into the Marantz? Analog RCA yields only 2-channel audio.

Two front speakers are only capable of two channel sound.

Marantz Pm-7200 left channel weak compared to the right

hmmm. Let's start by swapping the wires you are using for your speakers. Double check the wire connections first, then take the left and place iton the right and vice versa.

Always check your cables and connectors on them to make sure the cable is good and the connectors are not loose. This sounds like a bad cable or connection between the line output of your mixer and input to your stereo.

Sound only coming through one channel

You may possibly have a fault with the RED RCA output plug on your CD possibly a loose wire on the internal side or a faulty plug altogether. Try plugging it into another stereo and see if the problem replicates itself.... if so then i am sure that will be the case.
