Receiver display doesn't show anything

My receiver's display suddenly doesn't show anything the next time i turned it on. it's just the display of the receiver that's not wrking, everything else is working good. whenever i watch a movie, i get pissed off because i can't see the volume level. i know that it wasn't the "pure audio" that caused the problem because i never used it to watch movies and listen to music. I believe that it's the static electricity that caused the problem. please, can someone help me with this problem?

Re: receiver display doesn't show anything

If display is lost on TX-SR875 this is most likely the problem; resistor R9304 and R9310 (10 ohm) on front board are broken (at least one of them).

Re: receiver display doesn't show anything

The display on my OPTIMUS STAV-3150 had several dozen un-insulated, rigid little wires energizing the characters and numbers, and also holding the screen in place! Somehow one of those little wires broke and in a certain position caused the display to periodically go out.

I secured the screen to it's rear support with four small beads of hot glue and put a paper spacer under the wire and put a few beads to secure it as well. I made sure I wasn't securing the screen in the bad spot while doing this, and now everything works fine. The better solution might have been to solder, but the wires all went through a plastic guide before being originally soldered at the factory, and I thought I might do more damage trying to use a dremel to expose the break.

The problem was intermittent, and I could usually push on the face to get it to light up again. While troubleshooting I blew hot air on it and it went dark, so temperature was a factor at least in my case.

Another un-related thermal issue that plagued me at one point was my pioneer that wouldn't turn back on shortly after being turned off if it was very warm. I put it in my fridge, waited 20-30 minutes and it came back to life. I made sure not to turn it off for months and tried to fix it, but eventually had to get rid of it.

If you guys have high end stuff, maybe you should take it to a professional.

Audio receiver sudden death

I would suggest not turning it up so loud the next time and post the model and manufacturer information so we can better help.

There may be fuses that blew, replace them but do so with the same type of fuse, going to a different fuse will probably destroy your unit the next time you turn the volume up.

The reciver is stuck in demo mode. Can`t get it out of demo mode.

The demonstration will activate the first time you turn on
the power. When the demonstration starts, the following
message appears in the display:


To cancel the demonstration
Press the Power 1/0 button to turn the receiver off while the above message is being displayed. The next time you turn the receiver on, the demonstration will not appear.

It's in the manual - page 3.

My HK 3380 doesn`t turn on...

If the display does not turn on, then you have a power problem. The unit is not completely turning on. Since you opened up the unit, give it a sniff test to see if there is any burnt odor inside the unit. Check the fuses also. Have a look at the transformer board. It may have several fusible resistors sitting high on the board. If they burn open, there is no power to the display/cpu board.

"Protect" Flashing

In all likelyhood, one or more output transistors have failed. Please confirm your model as STR-DE335 and I'll post the probable parts that need to be checked.

It has power but won't work!

There is a problem with the output stage of the amplifier section and the whole unit is in "protect" mode. This means that the output section is turned off. The output transistors are the likely defective parts here. Expect a repair cost of $15-$40 in parts plus the local labor rate.
