This guy on YouTube has made stacks of video's about this model. He knows what he's talking about too, so I would watch his video's and you might get a clue to what is going on with yours.
I watched a bit of this video and the relay for example might kill the sound? But watch all of his video's as there are some things to watch out for too.

Many electrolytic capacitors inside can fail from age and cause odd issues like that. I've fixed many Carver Receivers. Almost all need a bunch of little caps.

I have an Integra DTR 20.3. Recently, I have been getting no sound from the speakers after removing the headphones from the headphone jack. Any ideas?


Usually the headphone jack has a contact that's "made" by the 'ring' section of the jack when you push in the plug, which bypasses the speaker circuit (that's what automatically silences the speakers when you plug in the headphones when there are no switches to turn the speakers on/off manually)... if the 'ring' strip got bent somehow so it's pressing against that contact all the time, it won't let the speakers' circuit come out of bypass. Look inside the jack with a flashlight... the sideways Vs that touch the 'ring' sections of the stereo headphone plug should be about in the middle of the opening... if they're pushed over too far it may require disassembly to bend them back to the proper position.

No Speaker Sound, Thinks Headphones are Plugged in


If you don't plan on using the headphones - take the cover off and there may be a cable to the headphone jack board that can be unplugged. This will disable the headphone jack from sending a bad signal to the micro. If you want to be able to use the headphone, then the jack is going to have to be replaced.

Try a quick blast of compressed air into the headphone jack area. Worked great for me.

Denon 1908 no sound


Try inserting a headphone plug into the headphone jack and remove it. Sometimes these units have a problem in the headphone jack where the unit thinks there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. This cuts all the audio output to the speaker jacks. If you never plan on using the headphone jack, you can also go inside of unit and unplug the cable that goes to the headphone jack board. Just make sure you unplug the unit before you do this, the plug is close to the main power switch.

My headset is not working


Most Dell computers have special hardware and software that are set up to automatically adjust the configuration of the headphone ports when headphones are connected, muting the primary speakers in the process. If no sound is coming out of your headphones, this is most likely caused by a configuration issue that can be resolved with a few simple steps.

Basic Headphone Troubleshooting
If no sound is coming from your headphones, confirm that the headphones work properly by using them with a different device. After this, confirm that the headphones are plugged into the proper jack. If your CD/DVD drive has a headphone jack in front, audio will only be played through this jack when you are playing a disc. On a desktop computer, the correct jack to use for headphones is usually color-coded green, while notebook computers will have headphone icons next to the correct jacks. Finally, check the speaker icon in the system tray to make sure that your sound output is not muted. b> Troubleshooting Notebooks b> Most Dell notebooks use a special type of audio jack. The jack, along with the sound drivers that are installed, automatically detect whether headphones or speakers are plugged in and adjust the sound output accordingly. If this does not happen when headphones are plugged in, the sound drivers may be at fault. Visit the Dell support website and download the most recent sound drivers for your notebook. If this does not help, some users have reported success with removing the sound drivers completely and letting Windows install generic drivers automatically. Last Resort b> If all other options have been exhausted, the last resort in troubleshooting a headphone jack is running a complete system recovery operation. This will completely erase all of the information on your primary hard drive partition and reinstall Windows along with the drivers for all of your hardware. This is an extreme measure, as you will lose all of the information that you have stored on the hard drive. However, it will resolve the issue if it is caused by a software problem. If the issue remains, the headphone jack must be replaced. Hope this helps.

It turns on,everything works normal and sound even comes out of the headphone jack.but there is no signal coming out of the speaker jacks.no sound or test tone


Hi depending on the design some receivers , when you plug in headphones, speaker sound is disconnected by the headphone socket so it could be faulty, or there may be a separate switch to switch of the speakers, (while using headphones) if so that switch could be suspect. I dont think the amplifier part of the receiver is at fault as you say you can hear sound at the headphones. It is not impossible though that a fuse has blown inside the amp, If you unplug from mains and look inside you may spot a blown fuse , (only replace with one of the same rating).
Hope this helps

Connecting NAD 314 Receiver\ preamp to Carver M-500t to speakers


Dear Tim,
Yes, you can connect your NAD as a preamp to the Carver power Amp.

Connect the NAD's pre-out to the input of the Carver Power Amp. You can then connect the Klipsch speaker to the Carver. Set the gain control on the NAD.

Now you should be able to control all the input and the main volume control from the NAD.

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume


first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.
