Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Electro Brand "Encore" RV Stereo Model 7680 AM/FM/Cassette While searching for stations on the FM band, sound is good as long as you keep the tuning knob moving. When desired station is found, the sound becomes garbled and choppy when the tuning knob is released. also, the stereo pilot flashes on and off irregularly. As I said, while scanning the dial slowly, each station is loud and clear. For what its worth, this problem does not exist on the AM band.

Been trying to get the radio station to program.it hasn't been working. On my RX-590


If you are using automatic channel search, disable it and use manual tuning to find the station then program it. If the signal you are seeking is comparatively weak compared to others, the tuner will skip it in the automatic search mode.

I have an older (10 ) years Sansui am/fm receiver model rz-5500av. It performs well, but after a power surge, the fm radio will not play in stereo. The fm stereo indicator flashes on and off. I was told...


Part of the circuit is a stereo multiplexer decoder, that decodes the fm stereo signal, I guess that is what you mean when you talk about capacitor linked to the fm band.

I do not have the sbchematics for this circuit, if you are good at electonics just grab the tester and check the whole circuit. On a radio is not difficult to find a blown capacitor.

Test also the stereo/mono switch.

DEH-P7900 BT US model. Isthere any way I could change the tuner frequency to european one. Thanks.


The DEH-P7900BT is almost identical to the DEH-P85BT sold in Europe.

This is a US model and will tune most AM/FM stations in the UK/Europe. The FM broadcast band is 87.8 to 108.0 MHz. so it will not pick up any FM stations outside this range. Also, the tuning is in odd increments (such as 96.1, 96.3, 96.5, etc.) so some stations with even frequencies will be slightly distorted, depending on the power of the signal the station generates.


I found this bit of info for you but ill keep looking and let you know what i find out.
Also have you tried it in europe to see if it does work or not let me know ok

Marantz 2220b does not play in stereo in fm mode. i doxed all pots, & knobs, adjusted pot 304 but no dice. fm light is good, lites up on aux settings


Do you have an antenna attached to the receiver? If you don't, it might not be getting a powerful enough signal to pull in stereo. Also make sure that the mono button is not pressed or faulty.

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

With the Marantz SR 440/640 receiver, there is a Mono/Stereo push button. What position should the button be in to listen to a stereo broadcast? jefferj16@hotmail.com


I can't find the manual or a good picture of the front panel but I'll chime in anyway.

Are you sure the button applies to FM? It may be for overall stereo vs mono listening.

If it IS for FM choose Stereo. Mono if the station is so weak that it won't tune in stereo. Usually a receiver will have an Auto function that will do it automatically.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Auto muting on when on am/fm and no sounds come out. everything else is fine.


That's normal.

The Auto Muting mode mutes the audio output of the tuner if the station is not sufficciently strong to be accurately tuned. Otherwise you would hear all that interstation hash noise.

Press the FM Mode button to change it to Mono if you want to manually tune a hard-to-reach station. It will be in Mono.

Page 26:

AUTO MUTING
Normally select this.
When a program is broadcast in stereo, you will hear stereo sound; when in monaural, you will hear monaural sound.
This mode is also useful to suppress static noise between stations. The AUTO MUTING indicator lights up on the display.

Alas

This is a very common fault with these units, repair is a little expensive, as it's the FM tuner unit. It's an ebay job I'm afraid, pay around £45 for a second hand 6000 with code.
