Nad 712 output issues - Mute flashing

I just got a Nad 712 off ebay. Upon initial setup, after plugging in and turing the receiver / preamp front power button to put it in standby mode, the led faintly shows a flashing mute indicator. Once turned on, the mute indicator turns off, but the led is faint and there is no output from the stereo. Is there a system reset for this unit? Is there a way to turn off mute without a remote? What is wrong? Should I claim DOA and try to get a refund? Thanks!

Re: Nad 712 output issues - Mute flashing

The only thing I can tell you for sure is that the mute indicator always flashes (very dimly) when the receiver is off.  I have no idea why, but mine has always done this.

How do you connect power amp to av

I presume you want to use it to drive speakers from a source controlled by the Denon??? Probably the Front channels? We'll assume that's it...

Run RCA cables from the Pre Out jacks to the NAD's L and R inputs. If it has a volume control, set the NAD to its maximum volume (for consistency *), run through the setup for levels and you're done.

* If it doesn't have a volume control it's already set to max. That's normal for power amps. Your receiver / preamp controls the volume fed to them.

BTW: If you're thinking of using two sets of Front channel speakers simultaneously you'll have to choose a level on the NAD that will match up with the others in volume.

NAD 7130 FM stereo signal (on off again and again)

The contacts in the A B speaker selector switch had degraded on my NAD 7130 receiver. Distortion and signal loss would come and go. Contact cleaner and wriggling the swx knob became useless. Then, years ago I jumped the swx with small lengths of bare wire and tinned the whole thing with solder. Never had a problem since and it probably improved the receiver because it eliminated a component in the output stage that could (and did) introduce distortion.

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers

Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

Will NAD 712 accept an iPod Docking Station?

A 712 is not set up to use an Ipod USB dock.  You can buy a dock that will use RCA jacks into an old stereo - Apple sells them, others too.  Then the Ipod sits up and you can look at it.  Or you can buy the 1/8" stereo plug to two RCA plugs that Radio Shack has been selling for 30-40 years, plug one end into your Ipod headphone jack, and run the two RCA plugs into your Aux input.  That costs about $5, and is easy as pie.  An Ipod will play through any old receiver, but the USB docks will not plug into them.

NAD 712 Display unit

On my system the bulbs burned out some time ago. Today, I bought a pair of 12v micro lamps at Radio Shack (part 272-1092). Then removed the board behind the display and replaced the bulbs. This required some soldering. The bulbs have held up for more than 6 hours, so I do not think they are going to burn out.

NAD T760

You should connect the RCA connectors from your turntable into the phono input of the preamp. Also, make sure you have the grounding wire from the TT connected to the grounding on the preamp (if you do not have a grounding point, then just connect it to one of the screws on the preamp). Then connect the output from the preamp to either the Tape or the CD points on the T760. On the front panel press tape monitor and you're done.

Check and let me know how it goes. My set up's working fine except for clarity, which still needs to be perfected. I'm using a normal step-up phono stage.

No sound

Bad regulators in the power supply or the capacitors in the power supply are drying up. Needs to be taken into a shope as there are no user serviceable parts inside these units good Luck
