Receiver Realistic STA 2700: no sound / signal argggh
I bought the receiver just recently. It came without any speakers. I hooked up one speaker to test if it works. But all I got was a realtively loud hum. It doesn't matter which "channel" (TV, Radio, Phono,...) I choose.
I hooked up a headphone, same result.
When I switch it to FM the signal strenght indicator changes. Hower the left /right speaker channels don't change, so I assume there is no signal.
I also hooked up the ground screw on the back but that didn't change anything either.
Can someone please give me some advise how to proceed from here?

For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps
Try disconnecting all the speakers and see if the volume goes up without shutting down (watch the vu meter on the front) if it goes all the way up without dropping, you will need to check your speakers. If the speakers are drawing too much current then the system will go into shutdown(protection mode)could just be a bad speaker. Secondly try blowing out the receiver with canned air and removing anything that would obstruct ventilation.(ie; another device sitting on top of it or in a cabinet where it can not breathe.
You only need one red from the receiver to reach the right speaker and one white from the receiver to reach the left speaker. You say you have both red and white for L and R coming out of the receiver, are you sure? Because all red ouputs are RIGHT and all white are LEFT. I think you have 2 white and 2 red. One of the white is for a front left speaker and one for a rear left speaker. You need to connect to the one for FRONT speakers.
I have a sta-2080 realistic receiver and wide range frequency equalizer plus a tape deck sct-22 all realistic.My problem is when i play the tuner or cd player witch is connected to the aux
the volume goes soft and then loud with a lot of cracking sound now ther is hardly any volume.when i play the tape deck it has it own volume control every thing is good so what parts do i need. thanks corneil
On any 5.1 system without 2 zone capabilities when you press speaker "B" the receiver uses the rear channel amplifiers to send signal to the remote speakers. As a result the receiver cannot output signal to both the rears and the remotes at the same time.
The Sonamp 275 has Signal LEDs on the front panel, above the Volume pots. If signal is present at the RCA inputs, the Signal LEDs will be blinking.
Most likely, there isn't any line level audio signal coming from the receiver. Hook RCAs to Tape Output or MD output and check system using the Tuner which is an analog signal.
