No sound output nakamichi ta3a

Nakamichi ta3a receiver has a blinking green light next to power button & no sound will come out of speakers. We don't have the right headphones to check if it's just a speaker problem, but the speakers work with our other receiver.
Thanks!

Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.

Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.

This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P

I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.

What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.

I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.

It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.

Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)

Let me know!

Did you make sure your Speaker A or B switch is pushed in? This happened to me a few times where I thought the receiver was broke, but someone had accidentally turned of the speaker A switch...

I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.

Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).

The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.

Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good.
Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.

Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.

To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers.
If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.

If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it.
make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.

If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.

If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.

If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)

Check the speaker wire. Sometimes it can just be loose in the terminals and cause distortion. I have had the problem before.

Going on standbymode and power green light blinking TA4 nakamachi


I'm not familiar with this product, and there the best I offer is that you consult the user guide (which you probably already have)
http://www.ps2netdrivers.net/manual/nakamichi.ta-4/#manual
or (buy) a service manual (which it seems includes a troubleshooting guide) from any of a number places, two are given below:
http://www.manualszone.com/en/nakamichi-service-manuals/62888-NAKAMICHI-TA4-service-manual.html
and
http://www.nakamichi.owner-manuals.com/TA4-service-manual-NAKAMICHI.html
All three manuals/guides are available from
http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/nakamichi/ta-4.shtml
There other websites where you an download the service manual (I don't know if the are the 'official' service manual, or different ones that have been written by different people).
If you are really stuck contact Nakamichi through www.nakamichi.com or (what appears to be a more friendly site) http://www.nakamichi.co.uk/support

How do you connect a Nakamichi surround sound system to my Phillips tv model 42PF7220A/37


I'm confused. The message header shows a problem with a Yamaha RX-V995 receiver.

As for connecting a Nakamichi (or any surround system) to a TV - the only connection would be the Monitor output (video connection) to an appropriate video input of your TV.

If it is a Nakamichi, it is a little older and probly predates the invention of HDMI cables. My guess is you will either use the S video output or Composite video output to the TV's input with similar connections.

This allows you to route whatever video sources you have connected to the Nakamichi to the TV.

No power output or display.green standby light flashes.


Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

My Nakamichi av7 has no output to the speakers. it has not been used for a year but was fine when last used. is it a sticky relay?


This could be a number of things and withouit taking measurements internally, there is no way to be sure. Some possibilities include:
1) defective capacitors in the power supply.
2) shorted outputs
3) Open power transformer (either the standby transformer or main one)

To attempt to narrow down the possibilities, listen carefully when yyou attempt to power it on. Do you hear a click? Are there any lights on the unit at all? If the standby circuit is OK, you should see the standby light on.

Please update this with any additional details you can and we'll continue from there.

Thanks,
Dan

While playing a CD, my Nakamichi Receiver 2 made a ''pop'' noise and lost the signal, with some smoke coming from the top vent near the front. It was in a confined area, and I believe it overheated and...


The output section has a problem. The receiver is in "protect" mode and wioll not turn on the speakers. This unit needs service. In all likelyhood, one or more of the output transistors has shorted and hte smoke came from a resistor that fried. This is a relatively simple repair for an audio repair shop. Figure around $40 for parts for this repair.

Blinking standby mode light


With the unit unplugged, remove the top cover and use an ohmeter to check the 10 power transistors on the large heat sink; Q6050 thru 54 and Q6060 thru 64. If you find blown transistors (R<1 ohm from E to C) you'll need to replace them. Also check the large ceramic current sharing resistors, R6100 thru 04 next to the output transistors. These are dual 0.22 ohm, 2W resistors that typically fail open if overstressed. These are both common failures resulting from overloading the speaker outputs that will cause the proctection circuit to shut down the power supply at turn on. Good luck.

Display gone, no longer functioning


Green light but no display- most likely main transformer is gone (60%), 35%- blown main fuse, 5%- bad display or power supply. You are lucky if unit is still under warranty. Solution- repair shop.

With the receiver off, press ENTER + ADVANCED SURROUND keys continuously for 2 sec. and it will tell you the fault it encountered. Even if it has a short, it will still protect the speakers; however, it is still a good idea to disconnect all speakers before doing this.
