Nakamichi AV-10 The tone control seems to be causing the speakers to fade in and out, even when depressed or not depressed. Pressing the button causes static thru the speakers. Any suggestions?

    I have always had severe noise when using the same switch, once it is pressed, I hear serious friction in the speakers. This has been very f4rustrating.+

    I had the same problem for an year, now the receiver it's not working and the front card needs to be replaced. I don't know if it had anything to do with it, but I'm not happy with my Nak ( I had problems with my Nakamichi DVD player too).
    regards. Javier

The contacts in the switch are probably oxidized or warn out. More than likely it is oxidized.

You can get some switch and control cleaner from most any electronics poarts supplier.

You have to open the reciever to get access to the noisy switch. You would then spray a little of this cleaner in to the switch. Then work the switch back and forth rapidly to clean it.

If this does not work, then the switch would have to be changed.

If you don't feel confortable to do this procedure, you can bring the receiver to a service shop. They would be doing this type of service routinely.

My Yamaha rx v 563 brand new used few hours only, doesn't turn on.all speaker's connected,.please give me yr valuable advices Thanks

Try holding the INFO and TONE CONTROL buttons and pressing power. This will release the protect lock. If it shuts back off, try disconnecting your speakers and try it again. You might have a shorted speaker or cable hooked up causing it to shut down.

No audio from Nakamichi av-10 receiver. Checked all connections and speaker buttons. Even headphones don't provide any audio

There is a protection circuit in that unit. It has a relay that is either dirty or has detected a fault that might or might not be there.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...

I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

I would recommend taking it back to the pro that installed it given it hasn't been to long. Also the deck should be warrantied and if the front side is not working I would consider that a faulty head unit. I know Nakamichi head units are not cheap.

Go back to the store you purchases it from or contact Nakamichi directly at the link below:

Nakamichi AV-7 5.1

in this case the centre speakers are the main route to the sound. 5.1 is for movies, where the centre speaer takes predcedence.

Nakamichi AV-10 very little sound on the center speaker

could be the speaker, try connecting another speaker and cable and see if it improves. If the problem is still there and you've checked all the settings insuring that its not turned down, then could be an internal problem with the receiver.
Hope this helps a little at least.
