    The answer doesn't address my issue. TX-SV727 -When MR OFF button is engaged (lighted) the receivers keeps clicking on anf off. When the MR off buttom is disengaged it clicks on and off every time i use the remote controller.
    Thanks

    That makes sense. Do you have any suggestions as to how to find the short? I can't find any loose contacts.

  • gonchy Oct 01, 2009



    It looks like thee problem is something else. I can use any of the remote control's funtions, except the volumen. When I click on the volumen up on the recorder the volumen goes up but the unit clicks off and on immediately. Any other ideas?

It is clicking because there is a short in the amp section of the unit's internal circuits.
When MR off (remote/manual) is off, it clicks each time the you try to turn on the unit with remote (buttons will wake it up from standby normally).
When it is on, it will click all the time, as power on button is on.
Try unplugging speakers and power cord. wait ten minutes and restart unit without speakers, just to test it. Do not do operation, just power on with MR on and use the button.
If it is still clicking, then the unit must be take apart and tested at component level , with particular attention to shorts to chassis, and to the final section of the amp.

    The clicking is the protection circuit kicking in.
    That happens when there is a short, or a wrong voltage is detected.
    The unit must be tested in full.
    First you grab the service manual.
    Then you test the unit.
    If you have not done it before you can damage the unit.
    First step is a check up of the situation. Look for burnt components, bulged or leaking capacitors and shorts on I/O connectors.
    Then you test unit, starting from PSU, testing amp ICs or transistors. Transistors are tested using multimeter on base, collector and emitter contacts.
    You test controls, reading if any of them is stuck on close.
    Better testing with schematics or troubleshooting diagrams on service manual.
    Repair must be done by an experienced person.

    It can be a short on output contacts, as you turn on the volume the power overdraw causes the unit to shut down in protect mode.
    The unit must be taken apart and fixed by a tech.


    Why don't you try calling Pana at the number on user manual, then you came back.


    Let me know if you have further questions after, or leave feedback.


    thanks

Hi,

Lof people posting that they are having problems with this clicking sound,
Well, I figured the issue out. It wasn't a firmware or hardware defect. It was just some simple settings.

It has to do with the default Listening Mode preset, which is "previous used" or something. .

If you go into setup, and to listening modes, and find you input that you are using, and switch it from the default to "direct" on all of them, the clicking issue will be gone!

Hope that helps!
Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Receiver clicks but no lights, no sound. I did short a power cord by accident. Is it likely the fuse or something more serious?


It will be a fuse or something like it. It could have also caused a fault in the transformer or power supply.

The receiver volume was cranked up. receiver


sounds like you shorted out the amplifier or one of the capacitors was overloaded.

New units have a feature that prevent the volume from being cranked up when they power up.

You will have to take it in for repair but before you do that you will need to determine what its worth.

I say this because a basic repair is going to be $150 so yo must weight whether its best to spend that money on repiring or just replacing the unit.

fair market value on your receiver is under $100 so I wouldn't recommend sending it in for repair.

here is a LINK to recently sold units

Hope that helps

Onkyo tx-sv727 Protect displayed


first thing if it says protect, check the fuses inside the system they may of blown .When choosing wire gauge, consider the quality of your components and speakers, the overall sound quality you're trying to achieve, and the budget you're working with. Also, keep in mind the distance between your receiver or amp and your speakers long wire runs can cause significant power losses, and thus require thicker cable. You can use this as a guideline
Distance from speaker to amplifier Gauge
Less than 80 feet 16
80 to 200 feet 14
More than 200 feet 12

No sound


Is there an indication of protect mode on the front display? Have you checked to see if the tape monitor switch is on? Did you hear a click when you first turn on the receiver followed by a second click?

Power on


If the power button is not sticking, there is a short in the amp circuit of this receiver. It will need to be serviced.
