Marantz SR-5000 Ghost power issue

I have a Marantz SR-5000. It has been turning off and on by itself. If I have it plugged in and am listening to music it is common that it will turn off after a while. When it does this it won't turn back on immediately, but after a while I can turn it on and all of the presets have been wiped from memory. Alternately I can have the receiver in stand-by mode and be gone for several hours and often I will come back and it will be on. Once again with the presets wiped and, luckily, volume set to 0. Any advice would be lovely. I'm not afraid to dive into replacing PCB components, but unfortunately I don't know where to start looking to see what's wrong.

It is likely that the PA stage has developed an offset voltage in the output stage. The faulty amplifier channel can be found by progressively disconnecting the collectors of the of the power transistors until the protection fault disappears. Once the faulty channel is found the the cause of the offset has to be traced to the faulty transistor or resistor. Don't forget that if you can smell smoke or burning then there are likely to be components(esp transistors) that have been damaged by the fault.
I had a Luxman unit that destroyed 5 transistors in the output stage that was due to an open .5W resistor in the driver stage.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Marantz SR-18EX Loses Memory and Has Distortion on Center Ch.

There is a 1 Farad "super capacitor" that needs to be replaced. You need soldering skills to do it. The board is accessible if you remove the front panel of the receiver. The part # is DB-5R5D105; you can get them on eBay for about $2.00 each. Regarding the center channel issue, you may have a bad solder joint on the P781 connector on the P774 board. This is the board that houses the output transistors for the 3-channel main amp board (P704). If not these solder joints, you have a weak driver transistor on P704, and troubleshooting would probably be best left to a pro. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Marantz SR5500 and the unit will not stay powered on.

I have this problem. it is caused by an o/c mains transformer primary winding. the clicking and flashing light is the stanbyy circuit trying to switch the power on to the main (large) transformer when it gets no voltage out it switches back off

After listening for awhile the volume will automatically cut to a lower level, then iuse the remote to turn up to correct. does this sound like dirty contacts?


I would thought no. Generally you would only get that effect if you had moved the control yourself. Many amps now use a IC for volume control. That could be playing up. It could be a dry joint, if the sound effects some movement in the unit, but it seems unlikely.

Marantz SR-7200 reset


This was documented on the Marantz website briefly a year ago and is no longer available. My SR-7200 develops "click/pop" problems and a reset cures it of these issues.

While powered "off," on the front panel, press: A/D + FP +Dimmer (3 buttons) and power the unit on.

This reverts to original (out of box) settings. You then must reprogram input sources, speaker setup, levels and radio stations.

My Marantz SR-5000 will not power up. All connections seem to be fine. Does this receiver have a fuse?


Doug
Did you ever get this problem resolved? I have a chance to buy one of these from a guy who indicates he's having the same problem, but if fixing is going to be a bit expense, I will pass.

My marantz sr5200 powered off and won't turn back on. What do I do? There is a light flashing red. this is not an overheating problem or fuse problem. It happened when I was trying to program the...


try to reset the memory circuits, the info on them may be corrupted, try this:
1 disconnect the plug from the AC line supply
2 wait 10 minutes then, reconnect the plug to the AC
outlet
3 try to operate the equipment.

now.. if above does not work you may have to contact the manufacturer as
the issue could be related with the internal circuitry.

good luck!

Do have an idiots guide as to how to wire up the SR-4200 to a TV


I will interperate this as:
"So you want to play sound through your Marantz SR-4200?"

You need to clarify what sort of system setup you have, however i will put down a few ways to wire this up to your TV.

If you have a Set-top-box that gets the TV Channels, that is where the sound comes from. If you have a TV that plugs straight into the wall, you will have to get the sound from the TV. Grab a RCA Stereo cable - (White and Red heads, if you don't know what they look like, Google it).

If you are unclear about this, i have tried to make a diagram down the bottom to explain how this is to work. What you will do is Take the sound from the Set-Top-Box or TV and reroute it into your fantastic Marantz SR-4200.

1. Plug Red Plug into the the Red Slot, and White into the White on the back of your set-top-box or TV Out (if you get it around the wrong way, the speakers will be reversed.)

2. Plug the other end of the cable into the back of your Marantz SR-4200 in the TAPE input or VHS input as they are analog signal inputs. Turn on Marantz SR-4200 and turn it onto Tape or Vhs (depending on where you plugged it in).

[Set-Top-Box or TV out] >-------> into >------> [Marantz SR-4200]

If you still don't get it, then try searching You-Tube for a guide "Plug Tv into Stereo". I myself couldn't turn up anything useful

Marantz SR 5002 Won't power on


I've just been told by my AV person that is a known flaw in the SR5002 that the power supply runs hot, blows out, and sometimes takes out other components by cooking them. Thanks Marantz. How about a recall?
