Question about Marantz SR-5200 Receiver

1 Answer

One channel not working (no output) when useing various modes

You can hear a slight sound of the channel attempted to work for a split second, then it doesn't . In bypass mode, both channels work with all inputs ie. CD,DVD, tuner. When you de-active bypass, and use stereo mode (I currently only have the speakers hooked up to the front channels for stereo playback), only one channel can be heard regardless of the source used.

I have unplugged it and will wait the 24 hours or more to let it reset. However, it was not used for some time before I recently purchased it. When I checked it out it was working. Other than takeing the lid off to blow out dust etc.. I did nothing to it. Speaker wire is hooked up ok etc..

Hello

I had a similar problem, now to be honest there is quite a couple of things that could be faulty. I dont know which cable you are using between the source and the amp, but i am using RCA to mini jack.

I had the same problem that my tuner on amp played through all channels dvd as well, but as soon as i hook up the amp to my computer only some of the chanels played.

I found out that there is actually mono and stereo versions of of that cable thus, if you use a external source and channel it trough the amp with a mono cable, only some channels will be playing.
If you use a stereo cable both channels will work.

The other problem could just be a simple setting on the amp itself.
Usually you can set the number of channels you want the amp to be set on. It is very simple, locate this function an try every setting untill you hear that all channels are working.

It could also be an "ic" on the heatsink of the amp which overheated, if you open up the amp you will be able to see it instantly. This will explain the slight sound you manage to hear.

My advice is to try the first and second sollution and as a last resort send it to a repair shop or if you still have warrenty send it back. I doubt that it is a hardware problem on the amp itself.

Please rate this.

Best regards

2 or 3 of my channels have a picture but no sound......when I use the remote to change the channel I hear sound for the channel for a split second and then it's gone


Do a reset to this set, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Denon receiver not working surround output


If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.

I can't get my Comcast cable channels to display on my Hitachi HDTV..how should I fix this?


A very well written question and I think you have provided your own answer.

this set uses a antenna switching assembly and they do fail. It could also be a bad tuner--note that the other owner got blu ray and such on it which are not via the coax fitting.

If your box has audio/video output jacks (like the blu ray) connect them to one of the rear audio/video inputs on rear of set and select that input on the set---box will then be used for channels but connection will not be via the coax but via that input.

If the box does not have those outputs get another--most providers do not charge for a box with those outputs on it.

If works you are just bypassing the tuner where your problem seems to be---those antenna networks are no longer available from Hitachi.

Can't change from MONO to AUTO mode


Hello
Can't make sound from mono to auto is your problem I thinks and posts this solution.
Hit the "Menu" button and surf through, come to "Sound Adjust" window.
The settings allow you to change and adjust sound in your TV. There are Bass, Treble and Balance control to adjust to your individual taste.
To adjust them
1. Press Menu button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select the desired item.
3. Press => or 4. Press EXIT button when finished.
When adjusting the parameter of "Balance" control, always set it to mid position to get stereo sound from both speakers. If it is set to any extreme end, there will be no output from the speaker of that side, and will hear as mono.
If you press "0" [Zero] button, you can reset the sound settings to it Factory settings.
To select 'Streo mode;
1. Press "Menu" button.
2. Press UP or DOWN button to select MTS [Multi-channel Telivision Sound].
3. Press => or [The ON AIR arrowtells you if a broadcast is in stereo AND/OR contains the SAP.
Press "Exit" button when finished.

Keep the TV in stereo mode to get the best sound quality. The sound will work in stereo

mode even if a certain broadcast is in mono sound only.

Choose the mono setting to reduce excessive noise on a certain channel or broadcast.
Selecting SAP will allow you to hear an alternative soundtrack, if one is available.

There are many different "listening modes" integrated on my Kenwood VR-7070 6.1 channel receiver. But i only get both front speakers to work when in "mono" mode. Is there an easy fix?


There is not a "fix" for this selection, MONO is basically a single channel output so there is no seperation for various speakers like left or right which is a stereo effect, mono is like a single speaker sound so you are fortunate to have the sound from 2 speakers but they deliver the same sound.

Rear speakers do not work


Make sure of what audio mode you've set your receiver to, as well as what the source audio signal contains.

Some modes, such as Dolby Digital/Pro Logic will adopt the input format, and subsequently use only the front left and right speakers if there are no LFE/Center/Surround channels present. Setting the mode to Pro Logic II or IIx, on the other hand, will force a signal to be spread out to the various extra channels.

Using the Automatic Field Detect mode will usually provide the most appropriate solution for the input signal, otherwise.


Also note that if your audio source is from a PC and you are playing games, some games will, when you are using the digital output of many sound cards (most notably the Sound Blaster Live! and Audigy 1-2 and Audigy SE model cards) output only stereo as their signal, but still in a digital format. Your receiver will pick this up as a stereo specific signal and avoid using the subwoofer, center and surround channels.

Unfortunately, for those cards, there is no work-around beyond using analogue output or getting a more recent, better compatability sound card, as it is a limitation between the drivers, the card and the game in question, rather than your receiver that has the issue.

If the above doesn't help alleviate your issue and/or you could clarify on what your source audio is and whether you encounter this issue with all source-types or not, please post a follow up response.

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

Amplifier problem


Here's the basic problem. The DVD player can get a 5.1 audio source from the DVD. That signal is then converted from Digital to Analog and split into 6 channels of information. Each channel has an audio out on the back of your player. You are only using the Front L and Front R outputs. Based on how I read your description, they seem to be sent from your DVD to your TV, and then from your TV to your receiver. The problem is that you are only listening to two of the six channel, so you are losing a lot of information. How this sounds to you depends, in part, on how the sound is mixed on the DVD (5.1 versus just stereo, for example).

Because you don't have 5.1 system to take all six outputs (analog "DVD Audio" connections), you shouldn't be using those outputs. You could use the digital out (optical or coax SP/DIF) to send all channels to a receiver that could do the splitting (D/A), but it sounds like you don't have the equipment for that.

You didn't provide the model for the LG DVD, but there should be connections for analog stereo. They would be labeled as Audio Out L / R, or something similar. The connections are stereo, but your player would use all 5.1 channels to play through those stereo channels. You could connect those directly to your receiver, or you can continue trying to have the TV as a step in between (not suggested unless you just like to watch DVDs without turning on the receiver).

Surround center speaker does not work


This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).
