    you do realize it smoked , and if you do not know anything about electronic components or testing them or identifying them, then you will not be able to fix it , nor will i or any one else be able to help you fix this

    can you perform these tasks?

It depends if you have blown the amp first check all fuses then make sure your power is disconnected and the earth is very good, tight ect. the reconnect everything and if it still doesnt work try a replacement amp and cables

I have a Sony STR-DE135 receiver emitting a persistent hissing sound on all functions and inputs (CD, Tuner, TV/Sat, MD/Tape, Video). I have a pair of Boston Acoustic CR5 speakers attached. Any ideas on...


most hissing problems come from earth issues within the system them selves, i dont recommend taking the case of and plugin it in to start testing if its an earth problem. So my best solution is to simply take it your local music or electrical shop and pay for a repair or see id they can diagnose the issue, other than that i dont have a solution for you. I have a little guitar amp which was buzzing it's little heart out, but when i touched my guitar strings the buzzing stops (as i become the earth on touching it) so i tried my guitar on a different amp and it was fine, so my little amp was the problem, i took it apart and noticed that the screw for the earth was loose, once i tightened it the problem stopped and all is good. best regards.

Hi guys have a demon upa f88 and have lost sound on one channel from the amp, have ruled out the wires by swapping these with the other side, does anyone have any info on these systems?


Stereo amps are in fact two mono amps put together. So you have a good side and a bad side, but they are the same. So just compare the channels. Voltages on the bad side should be the same as the good side. If you "buzz" test the two sides you will soon find out where the fault is.
A buzz test is where you touch parts with an insulated tool. The working amp will buzz. But don't short anything. And keep away from the power supply.

Recently my subwoofer blew out & a friend hooked up a Bose subwoofer that goes to a computer,i think it was defective because when he hooked it up something inside my reciever just started to smoke so...


Put a fork in it, it's done. Take it a tech to give it the sniff test and determine the extent of the damage.

If you want a specific answer regarding a code you need to provide a make and model number. I doubt any code will negate whatever caused 'smoke'. No UNDO buttons on this stuff.

In the future refer to manuals for speakers and amps before randomly attaching parts of other brands or packages' all-in-ones'. They're usually desigend to be used exclusively as one unit and are not generally interchangeable.

Onkyo receiver HT-R530..after cable and speaker hook up = puff of smoke and blinking red light. Will only turn on for 10sec at a time. Whats UP!???


One way or another, it sounds like the amp has blown. Probably the outpous and/or drivers and such. Perhaps one of the speakers was either shorted, wires touching or hooked up wrong.

My NAD T753 goes into protection mode as soon as I turn it on.


The unit grounding screws have come loose. All the ground screws should be tightened.

Onkyo Subwoofer.


Didn't you smell the smoke? It's dead. But all is not necessarily lost. I have a 'powered' subwoofer in which the amp died but I just went inside it and ran speaker wires directly to the outside from the driver and I run it with an external amp.

SRT-875 SONY RECIEVER


IFF YOU HAVE CONNECTED X BOX TO AMP WITH PHONO CABLES CHECK THEY ARE NOT BROKEN ALONG THE LINE SOMEWERE.ALSO TRY HOOKING UP X BOX TO AMP WITH A OPTICAL CABLE AND SETTING X BOX OUT PUT TO 5.1 . IFF ALL THIS FAILS CHECK YOUR SPEAKER CABLES ARE NOT TOUCHING EACH OTHER OR EARTHING TO THE AMP OR OTHER METAL OBJECT.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

Stopped working


I had a similar problem with a jvc 8040. when I replaced the fuse it became very obvious that the b1560 output on the center channel was blown (smoke and sparks, always a dead giveaway). I haven't fixed the center channel yet but simply unplugged the center channel board and removed it from the unit. Now everything works fine except of course the center channel. Pre outs still operate just fine so a slave amp could be used for center channel power, or you could just go and buy a marantz amp; I did and then I realized that I was lucky that the old jvc quit.

Crossed speaker wires...did I destroy my amp?


Most likely what you did was burn out the output transistors to the center channel. and probably the Bias resistors that control them. The parts themselves would be inexpensive. But they would probably have to come straight from Onkyo. And you would have to know there part number. And to get matched complimentaries. Mark up. And how far into the circuit the damage went. If I was to repair it I would probably put $100 to $125. But depending on the age of the unit and what a new won would cost is what I would use to decide to replace or restore.
