Marantz support question

I've had my Marantz 7200 in a repair shop over 5 months and they have been unable to fix it. They now want to send it to Marantz for repair (my cost obviously).

I was told $55 for Marantz to evaluate and provide an estimate. If I approve that, it will cost $120 flat rate for labor (the $55 initially paid is applied to that amount) plus parts and all shipping costs. Does this sound typical of Marantz repairs?

The repair shop changed a few parts on the Digital Signal Processing board but none of the changes fixed the problem. In short, I have distortion out my left channel, and it is most noticeable with Source Direct=ON using any digital source (dig coax, optical, etc). You can hear the distortion in headphones, speakers, etc. Hook up one speaker and alternate switching it into the left and right speaker outputs makes it easy to hear the distortion.

Finally, does Marantz replace these DSP boards or fix them, and does it sound like a fix like this would cost me an arm and a leg? If it cost over $225 total for a Marantz repair I would be hesitant to get the unit fixed.

    I can understand how this is difficult... Can anyone provide feedback regarding what to expect from Marantz support, or what I should anticipate regarding overall costs from them?

Hi I had my SR7200 in the shop also. The 1st time they said that they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I brought it home and had the same problem. Brought it back and they had it for about 1 month and finally called and said that they talked with Marantz and the DSP needed to be replaced. They said that they would have to send it to Mararntz and it would cost about $150

This is the problem with computerized stereo's. The old analog stuff we could fix forever, but many of these digital problems, only the maker has the tools to repair. Feel fortunate that yours will even offer you support, even though expensive.
Good luck.

Hi we have a marantz amplifer and the headphone socket has gone, could you tell me if it can be fix and how much please, thank you martin

If you do the work, it is just the cost of the stereo plug. They are repairable. The amps cost a great deal to ship both ways. It should take about an hour. So if you have a shop do it expect to pay about 100 Dollars or less.

Marantz pm 7200 lost sound, only works when volume is up high, still looks like there are no high or medium frequencies.

You have either lost the pre-amp stage or the Main Amp stage. Since you have a problem on both channels it most be a part that is common to both channels. Something like an IC I would suspect.

It is likely that the PA stage has developed an offset voltage in the output stage. The faulty amplifier channel can be found by progressively disconnecting the collectors of the of the power transistors until the protection fault disappears. Once the faulty channel is found the the cause of the offset has to be traced to the faulty transistor or resistor. Don't forget that if you can smell smoke or burning then there are likely to be components(esp transistors) that have been damaged by the fault.
I had a Luxman unit that destroyed 5 transistors in the output stage that was due to an open .5W resistor in the driver stage.
Good luck.
