Question about Motorola DCP-501 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound quit My unit worked fine for maybe 3 weeks... then suddenly, while I was listening to the radio, the sound just stopped. Everything else on the unit still functions fine, but there is no sound from the receiver for tv or dvd or radio. Any ideas, please? (My unit was new in the box, but purchased on e-bay so there is no support available from Motorola).

I have no sound coming out of receiver all of a sudden. Connected speakers to another radio and speakers work fine. Everything looks fine on receiver just no sound. Oh, and the mute button is not on.

It is an indication that you have a faulty output ic.
Output ic is responsible for amplifying the audio from your reciever to sound output which is converted by your speakers.

If you're output ic is defective then definitely you haven't sound produce even your unit is working.

I've advice you to look for a qualified technician to checked the condition of your output ic and do some re-soldering for some dry joints on the board.

Thanks for using fixya...

NAD T743: The digital channels stop working after a short time.

Hmm, sounds similar to my problem. Analog input and FM seems to work but all coax/opto input are dead ( for me there isn't a buzz).
Have you, fredrik648, solved your problem?
Anyone with ideas what to do?

Sound Just Stopped Working

I have the same problem with my 49txi, and I called pioneer and a repair shop as well. Both told me that the 49txi has a known problem with over heating and that its boards unsolder themselves. I would have thought Pioneer would stand behind something this expensive, but that was the old Pioneer in the 80s, and the new Pioneer says we are on our own.

No radio

The front end is bad on this reicever. Your going to need special equipment to trouble shoot this problem, as Its all RF. It is most likly not worth repairing as a shop will most likly charge you more then its worth
