Re: NAD 402 Tuner problem

It's sounds like a chip gave up the ghost. You may want to try
turning in on and off a few times to see if you can get the culprit
to function properly again. Electronics are strange creatures in that you can at times just shake them and they will begin to function properly again. A loose wire here or there, instead of any real problem.

However, if the problem's more serious, given the cost of servicing these products, you may be better off just going to Ebay and buying a used one.

I recently purchased a nice used NAD 402 with original box
for $58. Upon arrival I found that the backlight to the digital display was not functioning, however the display itself was, and the sound of the tuner is amazing. It is nearly the equal of many tuners which I have owned in the past at as much as 50 times the price.

Best of luck to you...

I can't get my tuner to work, but everything else works fine. All I get is static went I turn to the radio stations on both FM/AM

If you are in a fringe area you might need an external antenna to work with your tuner. Happens.

We have moved to new zealand will the NAD c422 work here?

You can usually get a power converter locally so you can use products from a different country. I have no idea what radio stations you can get....:)

Can't get the tuner to work

I'd like a little more info, but I may be able to help anyway based on my experience with these....
Does the T752 behave this way when using the source selector knob, or just the remote, or both? If the buttons work fine, but not the remote, check the batteries in the remote and try again.
Does the remote and/or the source selector knob successfully let you select other sources? If so, the next thing to check is the sea of ribbon connector cables inside. If you've never done anything like this before, PLEASE DON'T try. Not only are there so many ribbon cables inside that you could accidently disable something else, but there is enough capacitance inside that amp to give you a REALLY nasty shock, even with it unplugged and turned off.
Now, if that hasn't scared you away and you want to check, or you want to have some info for your local tech, The tuner itself is just behind the antenna plug-in on the back of the unit, in a shiny metal-shielded box. There is a wide, thin white ribbon cable running from the tuner card down to the main board underneath. Make sure both connections are firmly seated, and are in STRAIGHT, and that the bottom connector's locking clamp is in place. Oh yes, make sure to pull up on that locking clamp before re-seating the cable. The cables are fragile, prone to lose connection, especially if the receiver has been moved recently.
If re-seating the cable doesn't cure the issue, a tech will need to check the source selector chip and circuitry.

Sansui synthesizer tuner T-909. Tuner keeps on going off-station and making a horrific static/hissing/white noise. Have taken a look inside, and replaced the crumbling leads into the pre-amp. There is some...

It sounds like there is a transistor that is breaking down because of heat. With the unit placed away from the amp, there is less heat. This unit needs a quick overhaul. If a tech can reproduce the problem, the use of a "freeze" spray will make finding the problem transistor easy. Figure on $5-$10 in parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair.
