Toshiba SA2500 stereo reciever

I have this reciever that I bought back about 1980. It quit working several years ago and got put on a shelf when I bought a new system.
I thought the switch had gone bad, but when I got it out recently and tried to fix it, I found that the switch was ok, that there was some other problem. When I turn it on, nothing happens, no light on the dial, no static on the radio, nothing. I took the cover off and tried replacing the fuses that I found there (3) but still no luck. I couldn't see anything that was obviously out of place, no loose wires or anything.
Thank you for your help.

There may be some missing voltages from the power supply or a circuit pulling it down. Needs to go to a shop that knows how to fix older equipment.

I suggest you get a schematic, find the main power transformer -- not the big one -- and see what the output voltage of it is. Could be there was a line surge and it cooked a zener diode that regulates power supply voltage. I can help you find a schematic.

Sounds like the power supply or associated module. Definitely fixable, but probably needs a technician.

Sounds like a grounding problem. If the ground plug isn't missing or loose try plugging it into a different outlet.

Have you thought about Universal Remotes? I bought a LG Harmony remote a year ago and never looked back. It plugs into your computer and after using the software you enter all the components of your home theatre, (including your 3280.) You can then use the one remote to control everything. Also some models have a charging base so you will not need to change batteries anymore.

My dvd won't get too long to work. if it's getting hot, it gets very choppy.

Hi, I'm afraid it is time for a new D.V.D. player. Having owned several pre-owned dvd players many years ago with identical problem I can tell you that a video chip is going bad ( this can be confirmed by removing the cover and you will more than likely be able to feel the heat radiating up from the square video processing chip ). It may still work for quite some time as an audio cd player though. I hope this was useful, please comment back if so and thank you for asking FixYa. Good luck, Prodzilla

Getting out of protect mode I have a Denon 787 receiver. It was working fine for 8 months. All of sudden, my reciever goes into protect mode after playing for about 30 min. Right after it goes into protect...

most of the receivers come with a cooling fan inside see if its working they usually work when you turn the volume up,, if its working that means you are playing it to loud if you lower the volume a little it will play just fine..( if the fan inside is not working thats the reason it goes into protect mode and it means you must have it repaired,, it goes into protect mode to prevent furter damage to the unit or the speakers,,

My Edirol UM-1 will not work when plugged into my computer

Hi zachmiller

You may need to update the driver for the device if you. I purchased on of these 8 years ago, and waited several years to for them to release new drivers for XP. Go here and select the correct operating system, download and install the new driver and see how you go. Any dramas, happy to help out

Turns off 5-10 mins after turned on

One thing to check would be the speaker connections. If this receiver worked before you moved it and only started doing this after it was moved, that could be the source of the problem.
If the speakers are connected improperly it could cause it to go into protect mode after a few minutes.
Also check the speaker wires and make sure you don't have any frayed wire sticking out and touching the chassis of the reciever or shorting together.
The phase control symbol is something I would need to research, I have repaired several of these recievers and do not remember the phase control ever being a problem.
Logic would dictate that something is connected wrong, my first thought is the speakers, but it could be something else. I would go back over every single connection on the back of this unit and double and triple check them all. make sure the positive speaker connections are going to the positive speaker post and negative to negative.
It is also easy to connect the speakers to the wrong jacks on the reciever. You may be bridging a channel or two and that would cause the reciever to get hot very fast and shut down.
If none of this helps you may just have to take it in to a service center. I would reccomend an authorized Pioneer service center. They can at least call Pioneer tech support and talk to Mark, Bernie, or Mike at Pioneer. They are on top of all things Pioneer.

I will be happy to help you further if you need it.

Front speakers have no sound now.

Hups, apparently my friend put the speakers into wrong slots. Then i just copied him while trying different speaker setups and it simply never occurred to either of us to check if these were the correct slots :-D

Anyway sorry for these useless posts.

Broken receiver

I bought my AV-DV75 from Best Buy about 10 years ago and it still works. However it did stop working a while back. I don't know why. I alsmost threw it away. But I unplugged it for a couple of days, then plugged it back up and it came back on. It is still working. Maybe that will work for you.

my center speaker quit working recently. If you decide to sell your AIWA speakers will you please email me?
