Question about Marantz Tr 2242 Sb Legacy Series Pll Synthesizer Am/fm 20 Station Preset

1 Answer

Marantz Legacy Series - no sound is getting to speakers from tuner or cassette.

I have a Marantz Legacy Series - IA 2232 amp; TR 2242 tuner; DA 2452 cassette. Been unused for fice years. Hooked it up and no sound is getting to the speakers from tuner or cassette. Lights are all lit and everything seems to be working fine. What would cause this? The amp? Is it worth fixing? I'm a duffer so hesitate to open them up. Thanks.

It seams like the amplifer is not working and you are right but it certanly needs to be measured first.

SOURCE: Marantz 6200

Your unit's micro IC, is in need of a reset.Un-plug the unit and locate the semi large yellow capactor on the main board. (r-h side facing front) Now flip the unit over and look thru the vent holes in that same area and locate the two solder pins. Short them out with a thin metal object, like a straightened out paper clip or wire, and turn it over (just discharge the cap and remove your wire) this will default all settings and restore normal operation.

I asked 3 times now!!! How do I hook up together a Pioneer tuner, power amplifier, and dual cassette deck, together then hook it up to a speaker!!!


Are we a little impatient?

It's pretty straightforward. Use one cable to connect the tape deck to the amp. Use another cable to connect the tuner to the amp. Use speaker wire to connect the amp to the speaker.

Marantz SR-18 NO Sound No Data error for DSS (Directv) only


You need to check the connection of the lead that carries the audio from the DSS to the amp, move it to one of the other channels ie vcr and see if it can be heard when set to and switched to vcr. Then we know if we are dealing with the Amp or the source..

I have a marantz av550 pre amp/tuner. One of the audio outputs is not working. It had been cutting in and out for a while and now no output. It is not the cable, the amp or the speaker. Is this so


It sounds like the output transistors went bad What I would do is check all output transistors in the unit they are usually the large transsistors on heat sink that an ohm meter and check each transistor while unit is off and no power go base to collector then emmiter to base if you get o or continuity on those legs on any one they are bad .

1. Verify the source of the signal - Look for any antennas that may have been hooked up, and verify connection has not been moved or removed.
2. Test with a different output by plugging in some headphones, and recheck the volume through the headphones.
3. Check that the A/B switch for the speakers has not been moved, and that they are switched to the correct speakers.
4. Try AM and FM for any signals both with speakers and then headphones.

Good luck!

Overload is another form of protect mode. See the link below for an explanation of protect. Also, in your specific case, the problem is definately internal to the amp rather than an external cause. Expect a parts cost in the $40 range. Feel free to post additional questions.

Marantz amp will not put out any sound


If it went out with no indications of trouble it's probably a fuse in the output circuit. It might be an out put amp but typically they let you know they're going bad with a little noise.

Stereo connection


Hi spanky

Sorry for the delays in getting back to you. Been busy here this week.

OK. to connect the 2275 to the 1152,there are 2 ways of going about this.

You can plug the pre- out of the 2275 to the power amp-in of the 1152. In doing this you are using the power amp section of the 1152 and the preamp functions of the 2275. Your other gear like CD player, tape deck and so on also plug into the 2275.

the other(better) way is to plug the pre-out of the 2275 into the tuner inputs of the 1152, leaving the volume at about 40% on the 2275 and use the 1152 as an integrated amp. This means you are using the 2275 as a tuner only. When you do this, you will need to use an RCA lead to jumper the pre-out/poweramp-in connections on the back of the 1152, and the 2275 ... L to L and R to R respectively.

I am still wondering why you want to use 2 integrated amps (each having a preamp and a poweramp section) The only real benefit the 2275 brings to your system will be tuner functions. You could just get a tuner and run the 1152 to be an ideal rig.

Let me know what your ideal setup you are wishing to build would have. Speakers, other gear like CD, tape deck, etc.

Problem with legacy amp


I would check the RCA preamp wires connecting the stereo to the amp. If these are loose or broken, it could cause you to lose your sound.

Does the amp show signs of life, such as clicking on, an LED turns on, or anything like that?

Has anything else changed between the time it worked and didn't work?
