I have a Marantz SR5000 receiver that stopped responding to the remote control. seems like the remote is working properly. The receiver also works fine besides the fact that it stopped responding to the...

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

I have had my Marantz Sr5000 for some time now and I just noticed the rear speakers have stopped working. Everything else seems to be working fine. When I run the test tone I get a tone from everything but...

First of all if you have not made any connection changes in the system prior to loosing the sound try these steps.
Go into the system menu and in speaker configuration see if somebody has given the rear ( surround ) speakers as none. If not just exchange the front and back speakers to confirm if its a speaker failure . If not you will need professional help to fix a damaged surround amplifier.

I need the remote control code numbers for the SR-18 so I can turn it on with my Direct TV remote.Do you know what they are?

the best thing to do is a code search per the directv manual and hope the Marantz powers off when you find the code.

If it turns off, you have won half the battle. Save the code and try turning the Mar back on.
The issue is that these universal satellite remotes are very limited on there funtionality with audio systems.

Keep in mind that if you find a code that turns it on & off, you will probably be limited volume only. If you get those three functions, you are very happy and call it done.

Hope this helps.

This goes for all sounds systems and not only Marantz.

Do you know the remote code for the Marantz SR-18ex receiver? I want to control it from my Comcast remote and can't locate a remote control number.

The stock remote for the SR-18EX is the RC-18SR - that's the one it shipped with when new. You can also use the RC-2000, RC2000 MkII, and I have an aftermarket RC-1400 that works perfectly with my SR-18EX, AND offers 15 macros instead of the standard 4 you get with the stock remote.

Marantz SR5000 Protect mode

The Marantz SR5000 and others of it's make, design type, and year group are prone to this problem. Many such units can be reset by pressing a sequence of three buttons with sporadic results... the SR5000; however, does not provide any such option. If the "Auto protect" mode comes "on" then you know it's not a simple power supply "fuse" problem that can be fixed for a dollar by opening the case and replacing the glass fuse with one of the same rating value that is stenciled on to the power supply circuit board. (Easier than trying to read the old fuse.) If you can get the schematics and know a bit about replacing electronics parts using a low-power soldering iron, then you might want to take a shot at fixing it; otherwise, it's time for recycling. (Tip: Look for discolouration on a part on a circuit board first, this indicates overheating and a possible short. Then trace the schematic circuit for the "Auto Protect" circuit to diagnose which integrated circuits is at fault.) Typically, it costs more to fix it in a commercial shop than it's worth as someone has to pay the cost of benchtime diagnostics... the repair part is fast once the faulty parts are discovered. There are free sources on-line of the service guide for this receiver; however, downloading the plethora of rar files to assemble a complete manual is a challenge.
