Question about Marantz PM-68 Amplifier

1 Answer

Marantz 2240 I disconnected and re connected my beloved 1970 classic tuner and lost all the control knob functions; volume, fm,am, bass, balance you name it. Wuold it be a simple fix or did I blow something major out? Where could I get a part if it is one part only. It still works but the volume is on blow out level. It works on the setting I last had it at. Thanks Susan

Hi there, be sure that you have reconnected the jumpers from pre am out to power amp inm opn the rear of the unit. You will get very little of anything if you leave these jumpers out. Also check that you have not inadvertantly turned on the taoe monitor. Give the switch a few operations to check that it isnrt playing up also.

If you are still having problems, feel free to get back to me here and we can sort this out for you.

There is a crackle when i turn the volume knob.

First unplug it. Sounds like you need to spray some tuner cleaner in the pots that are crackling. Pull the knob off and you should be able to use a spray can of tuner cleaner with the straw that comes with them to spray into the potentiometer , then rotate the pot several times while it is still wet. After cleaning them all, wait 10 minutes and then try.

How do i adjust the treb/bass?

my initial reply was...On the function button you may need to depress it for 3 seconds to activate base, treble, balance etc But
then I found this, "Rotary Volume Control: The CD receiver uses a 7-way rotary volume control that increases and decreases the volume of the stereo from 0 to 35. The rotary knob also controls other audio settings such as Balance, Fader, Bass, Mid, Treble and preset EQ settings. In addition, the rotary knob allows you to scroll through and select your music tracks when the Music Search function is activated.
Cheers, this should help ya.

Marantz SR870 tuner not working

Make sure your FM antena connection is good. A receiver will not pick up an FM signal without an antena. Even a small piece of wire will work to test. If the Tuner section is bad, an external tuner can always be connected to an Aux input. Due to cost, it may not be cost effective to repair this unit.
Hope this helps.

Is there a balance control on this radio or is that fixed???

Hello kayriecken,

You did not specify whether you have the old classic Becker or the new retro. I'm pretty sure that the knobs were "spring loaded" on my old '60's Becker (actually in a 1971 Mercedes 280S - later replaced with a Blaupunkt). On mine, you just pulled out lightly on the knob and it switched function to balance. One side, the volume controlled left to right balance, and the other side, tuning, controlled front to rear balance (fader). Try it and see if it works.

Hope this helps.

I need to find out what buttons control the bass and treble

Press in on the volume control repeatedly to step through the menu of audio functions. The
first option is Volume, followed by subwoofer (only if the subwoofer feature is currently
activated), Bass, Treble, Balance, Fader and back to Volume. When adjusting audio functions,
the unit will automatically exit audio control mode after five seconds of inactivity

Dear Sushant,    I do not think your use of an equalizer has caused any problems.  I will explain the proper use of the source/direct button.  This button's function is to monitor the output of a recorder connected to the record outputs of your amp.  When this button is pressed on the sound going to the speakers comes direct from the "source" (cd, radio tuner, phonograph etc.) when in the off position you can monitor the recording of whatever source is being recorded via the tape deck.  This switch must be off to record through the amps record outputs.    To test this, put a blank tape in the tape deck, choose the source as phono and place the dec in record/pause.  With the source direct button pressed on you should hear a change in volume when moving the amp's volume knob only.  When source direct is off you will be able to hear the output of the tape deck, so adjusting the tape deck's record level will also affect the volume coming out of the speakers.  more record level in/ more level out.!    Below is copied from page 9 of your user operation manual for Marantz's explanation of the source/direct button.  image.tiff
best of wishes, Michael Mittelsdorf
