Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Volume issues my receiver has worked flawlessly for the 4 years thats ive owned it, but recently the volume on the front speakers has started to change whilst listening(going up slightly for a second then returning to what it was), this is mostly noticable in music and is quite irritating. I tried differnt speakers and checked all my connections as well and as its recent i cant think of anything that might be causing interference as nothing new has been added.

4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers


You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

Yamaha rx 530 center channel cuts out


Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I've tried using the balance for left and right speakers, and when the receiver is acting up with the right speaker having a low volume, I tried moving the balance all the way over to the right speaker. The right speaker volume will not increase in volume but the left speaker will decrease in volume.

Just to clarify, the center and the rear speakers are balanced. The issue only happens sometimes when I first power on the receiver I will have no center channel. If I leave everything alone for a few mins, the center channel will come on.

So it seems to me that something one the receiver is going. The question is, can anyone suggest a physical repair for the receiver for these symptoms?

Thanks

I have the TX SR706 receiver for two years and yesterday when I turn it on it did a load boom sound and since then there are no sound


I had this happen to my unit shortly after I purchased it. When I turned the receiver on there was a loud pop through the speakers, the red light on the front started blinking and the unit failed to produce sound.

A tack worked its way through one of the speaker wires, causing a short. I replaced the wire and unplugged the receiver for an hour. It's worked well for the past two years since this issue.

If you haven't done so already, check all of your speaker wires and plugs on the receiver and the speakers. You may have a damaged wire or metal-on-metal contact somewhere. Try these steps:

1. Unplug the unit and disconnect all wires and connections. Let the unit sit for an hour.

2. Check all cords for damage or crossed connections.

3. Reconnect the power cord and set the volume to minimum. Turn the receiver on. If it stays on, shut it off, unplug it and reconnect everything, taking care to ensure that speaker wires and/or plugs don't make contact.

4. Plug the receiver in, set the volume to minimum (it should already have this setting after step 3) and turn it on.

It sounds like there is a short somewhere in either the wiring or the receiver. This caused the popping noise and activated the receiver's protection circuit. If it's a damaged wire or plugs or wires making contact, you can reset the unit with the directions above, replace or separate the wires and all should work. If the issue is within the unit, you'll have to contact Onkyo directly.

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


Marko,

I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.

It keeps goin to protectin mode


Well I have an Onyyo TS SV515 Pro II receiver that is quite a few years old. I have lived in several houses and have moved it with me. For as long as I can remember it has been going into 'protect mode' when I turned it over 6 on the volume knob. I have a subwoofer and 4 infinite speakers and a yamaha center channel speaker.
I got on the internet the today to see if I could figure out why it did this. One person suggested cutting my speaker wires and resplicing it making sure no hanging wires where there.
I had been using the same speaker wire since I puchased it (10 yrs ago). I feel pretty stupid, cause I just did the wires to my front 2 Infinite speakers and WaLa...It works flawlessly. I can now turn up my receiver...after 10 years of dealing with no 'full' volume.
*****Check those speaker connection, they are the key*****

Overload...


Pioneer posted this on it's Canadian Web Site:

Poor wiring connections, bad wires or a bad speaker may cause this. As you increase the volume, you will increase the amount of current you are drawing from the receiver. To troubleshoot this issue, try the following:
  1. Disconnect each speaker wire connection. Inspect for any frayed or damaged wiring and replace it.
  2. Check the impedance of the speakers; make sure they are properly rated for your stereo. In most cases, they need to be 8 ohms. Only a few Pioneer receivers will support lower impedance.
  3. If the problem still continues, try these steps:
    1. Turn the receiver off.
    2. Remove one speaker.
    3. Turn the receiver on.
    4. Increase the volume.
If the receiver overloads, repeat steps 1-4 (selecting a different speaker each time). If you disconnect a certain speaker and the receiver no longer overloads, have this speaker checked at a service center. It could have a bad speaker component, like a tweeter, sub-woofer, or even a bad crossover.
