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.

Is it just with the EQ (or any other single component) in the link? Old equipment develops oxidation on various controls. Depending on physical access, tuner cleaner may help. Or take it to a shop.

SOURCE: how to fix old 1970s receiver Loss of volume or sound to one channel

volume control is like a rheostat and has a tendency to corrode over time. try working the control vigorously back and forth numerous times. if this fails, carefully remove receiver cover and use electrical contact cleaner (comes in a spray can). if this fails, you'll probably have to hunt down a new one.

What is capacitor size for Realistic STA 2380? Where is it located? One channel or side plays crisp and clear, but the left side sounds distorted and like the speaker is cracked.


First thing to check is the speaker. Switch them to be sure it is not the speaker. The unit was made in 1987. The capacitors that you are talking about are mounted to the main board. There are more than one. It does not appear that you are very versed in electronic repair and this could be a disaster to attempt to repair the unit. It involves soldering and attention to detail. You will have to remove the main board and all associated items that are in the way. Realistic STA 2380 Service Manual Analog Alley Manuals

I have a realistic. Sta-2380 receiver.when I turn on the radio all it does is humm and the numbers flash.I can't change the stations either.


All radios hum when they don't know the words. On the real side of things though, there are parts in that unit that change AC to DC and there are parts that suppress the hum.
The service manual is here: http://www.analogalley.com/osccart/product_info.php?currency=JPY&products_id=1124
If you don't know how to solder, I would not download this. You are looking at bad diodes or capacitors.

I had onkyo 5.1 hometheater i cant raise the volume more than 40 how can i fix the problem ?


Hi,

It could be that there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver and when playing at a low level the speakers do not require that much power, however when the level from the speakers increases more power is required and if there is a frayed speaker wire touching the back of the receiver there could be a short causing the receiver to shut down. A way to avoid the frayed wire is to use "Banana Connectors" that the speaker wires goes to and the connector will plug into the speaker posts. Please try the following to see where the issue is coming from. Have the receiver turned off, make sure all the speaker wires are labeled, and disconnect them from the speaker terminals. Turn the receiver on select a source that would give you sound if the speakers where still connected and turn the volume all the way up. If the receiver shuts down than it would need to go to a service center as it is an internal problem with it. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect one speaker and than turn the receiver on selecting the same source as before and raising the volume up. If the receiver shuts down, remove that speaker from the post and connect it to another speaker post to determine if it is the receiver or the speaker itself that is giving you the problem. If the receiver should shut down after moving that speaker you know it is a problem with the speaker or the wiring. If the receiver does not shut down, turn the volume down, shut the receiver off and connect another speaker followed by doing the previous test procedure. Keep adding speakers until you have them all reconnected to the receiver as long as it has not shut off while trying the test procedure. After determining whether it is the speakers or the receiver you would need to bring either to a service center to be repaired. To locate an authorized independent service center, check the dealer and service locator at our website: www.onkyousa.com or www.integrahometheater.com, Thanks, JT

The signal select is set to analog but it still turns off when the volume is slightly turned up, can you tell me why?


Sounds like the receiver is defaulting to "protect mode", this indicates that there is an electrical short present in the system, I have found that speakers or speaker wires tend to be the cause often.
Disconnect all speaker wires at the back of the receiver, turn receiver on and raise the volume control and see if the receiver still shuts down, if the receiver doesn't shut off, then one of the speakers or speaker wires are bad, reconnect one speaker at a time, raise volume and see if the speaker you connected causes the receiver to shut down, if not continue connecting the speakers one at a time, testing to see if the receiver shuts down after each speaker connected, when the receiver faults to "protect mode" again after you have connected a speaker then you know that the last speaker you connected is the "blown" or shorted speasker or wire.If the receiver still shuts off after disconnecting all speaker wires, then either one of your sources has a problem(DVD,CDplayer,cass deck,etc.) or the receiver has an internal short that will have to be repaired by a servicer.

Good Luck !

This model is notorious for cold solder joints. Chances are it needs some touch-up soldering.
