NAD T753 Remote/IR sensor problem

My NAD T753 has the same problem you described in your post. It does not respond to the remote. The DVD player does respond. I reset both the receiver and remote.

I was checking if you ever solved the problem and how. I've tried the local NAD dealer in DC and that was a disaster, so I'm looking at whether I might be able to fix it myself.

    I have the same problem with my NAD T753. Just spent $115 on a new HTR 3 remote and confirmed the unit itself is not responding. Everything else works fine.

SOURCE: Does not respond to remote control

I have had the T743 for about three years now. The first unit which I got from the local shop was doing exactily like your described after couple of minutes use. Well, I took is back and got a new one covered by the warranty.

Unfortunately I never got any explanation to this problem from my local shop or anywhere else, so I guess the only way is to contact your local shop.

SOURCE: NAD T773 Shuts Down in 1-5 secs

Your problem is a common symptom of loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of no sound or automatic shut off for how many seconds..Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough. Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder". Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing.... Good luck: Regards, VOTIT

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

ALso do the same thing, but also cuts out my left rear speaker. This will make a dull hiss sound during use.

If I disconnect this speaker it works for a while.

It all started with my sub shorting out it's fuse, I had it repaired four times already and is costing me more than the system. I changed all my speakers and is costing me another R 12 000-00, problm still the same.

P.S. I had my amp taken to the specialists too, but they couldn't find any fault. If i touch the side of the amp I can feel a tingling on my skin, like getting an electric shock.....

Can this also be a ground loop / earth problem?

Not sure what this cable is for but YOU should be able to follow it to the component at the other end and determine its fucntion.

Here's the manual. Page 12 shows the rear.

Hello. I've got a Philips DVP520 DVD player which works fine except that the machine's IR sensor will not respond to the remote even though I have renewed the batteries therein. I note that the IR...

IR sensors do not light up on any electronic devices. And they do not fail that easily unless tampered with.
In all probability it still must be a remote problem. Try this test.
If you have an AM / FM portable radio switch it on to AM between 600 and 800Mhz. Turn up the volume and then hod the remote on top of the radio ( very close ) and press any button on the remote, you should hear a series of blips indicating the remote is working. If not the remote is not working. Try cleaning the spring contacts in the remote, they tend to rust if a battery has leaked in them.

Ok let me verify; you have an HT-520 home theatre with integrated DVD player. When you press the DVD input you can't control certain aspects of the DVD player or the DVD player does not respond at all?

Does the DVD respond at all if you put the remote into another mode (should be called Amp or Receiver)? Can your remote be programmed for different devices and mabe it was programmed to control a different DVD player?

I will search the unit in my knowledge base and let you know some exact steps to try. If you could clarify some of thoes details that would be wonderful.

Non-functional remote control for Baseline DVD recorder

No do not try soldering the led. This is a led (Light Emitting Diode) It is supposed to look like that. You might have a bad IR sensor in the Recorder itself. The Ir sensor (Infared Sensor) receives commands from the remote and relays the command to the microprocessor in the recorder for processing. To make sure its the remote try a universal remote and program it for your dvd recorder and see if it takes commands of any sort. IR sensor are very cheap the only issue is installing it on the main board of the recorder.

Unit does not respond to remote control

I had this same problem with the Onkyo TX-SR706 this evening, and finally found the solution in the "Controlling Other Components" section of the manual: Resetting the remote control did the trick. (P.S. This problem started after I spent many hours today trying to get my new Acer laptop equipped with a Hauppauge TV tuner stick to correctly display its image on my Samsung HDTV, with sound. I tried connecting the laptop via HDMI first to the Onkyo receiver and then directly to the TV, neither of which worked as it should. I assume that somehow, in all those hours of much plugging and unplugging and fiddling around, I screwed up the remote sensor -- thank goodness I eventually found the "Resetting the Remote Controller" solution a little while ago -- I was approaching the point of ripping everything apart and throwing it out the window!)
