Question about Audio & Video Receivers

3 Answers

I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima, and the left channel speaker will quit working while playing CD player. I would tap on the face of radio to recover sound and it would work, but now the whole radio is not working. But still can hear the cd changer from time to time. But it will not turn on or play. Is this easy to fix myself or do I have to get it repaired?

I just thought to get in for my pennyworth here. In my day as a young man we never dreamed that we would have to do much more than "change the stylus" to get pristine sound back on our (Vinyl Record) disk players. We were very satisfied with the "fidelity" of the music from our systems and were content with 5Watts of Audio Power. Now just look at the hassle one faces when the semiconductor laser fails in a CD/Mp3 player system and the audio angst and anger some(and far too many in my opinion) of our current "Bass Booming Generation" create with their unnecessarily high powered Audio Systems both in the home and in vehicles on the road. I may not live to see it, but I bet my bottom dollar that eventually Laws will have to be passed limiting Audio Output Power to levels that the idiotic minority cannot use to inflict their anti-social use of Audio as a weapon to foist upon the ears of their neighbours who are entitled to hear what they themselves wish to in their own homes and to be able to walk out in their world anywhere without being ear-blasted by Bass-Booming Car Hoons. Why is it that when we humans are blessed with so much in the way of "comfort entertainment equipment" that some have to mis-use it in such selfish and annoying ways? Beats me!

I had this problem 5 times while it was under warranty... everytime they just replaced the cd changer. After the warranty ran out, I took it all apart and pushed the connector between the changer and the radio. Put it all back together and it worked fine. They kept replacing the cd changer instead of fixing the bad connector. Eventually, the refurbished cd changer that the dealer put in stopped reading cds. Can't win them all.

No sound from front left channel


Hi, here is a procedure to discover the source of the problem. No sound from the left front channel can have several sources other than the left front channel itself.
Let's assume, for just now, that the speaker is good and the cable to it is good.
Here is a testing sequence to follow:
1 If you have a CD player connected to it. Put a CD in and put it into play mode.
2 reverse the connectors from the CD player to the receiver. See if the sound moves to the left speaker and stops on the right speaker. Or if it plays fine.
3 If the sound reverses channels, That cable is bad. Replace it
4 If the sound is still not coming from the left channel. Check the connections and cables to the speaker. MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO STRANDS OF WIRE TOUCHING THE CHASSIS OR SHORTING TO THE OTHER SPEAKER WIRE.
5 If there were. Correct it. Shut down the receiver and then after a few minutes turn it back on.
6 If it still does not work. check to see if a tiny amount of sound is coming from the left speaker.
If so, turn the music up and see if it pops back on . If that is the case there is a failed resister on the circuit board that is arcing when you turn up the volume. That being the case, it is time to drop off the receiver to be repaired in the service center.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

Audio won't play on DVD - but it will play for CDs


Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!

Denon AVr hookup advice


Hi khanfaisalv

You can use Zone2 feature that is built into this amp, then have dvd playing in one room, and cd playing in another. Both controlled separately

Page 10 of the manual tells you how to hook up the wires to Zone2

Page 30 has details of how to get it up and going.

Good luck with the rewire job, thanks for using FixYa

Low volume on left channel of Sony STR-GX4ES


The headphone is tapped before the final stage of the amp, so knowing that those work properly helps to isolate the problem. I think that this model uses an IC for the voltage amp section prior to the final amp stage. That being said, the IC is probably an UPC2598 (if memory serves). I'll confirm tonight. Try resoldering any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Let me know what you find.

Speaker Trouble


Michael,

Not being an expert, but having years of experience with electronics, I would think there may be a bad wire connection for the CD unit or a bad unit. If the CD unit is on your PC, you can check the internal connections. There should be a heavier gauge power supply cable and a lighter gauge signal connector. It could be loose at the CD unit or the motherboard. Use an anti-static wrist strap and make sure the power is off. Your cable might be bad and they are easily purchased and replaced. If it is on your "stereo", then check the RCA jacks. You can reverse the left and right RCA jacks to see if the problem is still in the same channel. You could also connect the CD to another line input on your receiver and see if the problem persists.

Sound only comes out of left channel, only dvd player works


I would Initialize Unit back to factory settings by turning off main power switch then hold both 6.1/7.1 surround and direct buttons ( they are next to each other near main power switch) in while turning un main power switch. Hold both buttons until you see all lights light up. Then check functions and setup like you bought it new.
Owners manual also explains how to initialize receiver

Center Channel Audio


There are probably several sound settings on the receiver :
Dolby surround , stereo, theater, SACD etc.
Try another setting other than the one you have

Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker


it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.
