Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The unit cannot be controlled with a remote control device. I used the OEM remote and other universal remotes with no success. The OEM remote does control other devices such as the TV and DVD player, but not the amplifier/receiver that it is designed for. I am inclined to think that it might be a malfunction of the internal remote sensor of the unit itself but have no idea how to repair this or to know for sure if that is the problem. I have tried the manual reccomendation of unplugging the unit to eliminate a problem with static interference with no result. I can most likely repair this if I know what part it is I need to buy and where it is located inside the unit. PLEASE advise.
Sincerely with gratitude,
Hi, I am convice it's not the amp itself, is your remote a pioneer, if it isn't then it's your remote. Even thought you have bought a universal remote, it doesn't garanty it will work with any device,.... take my word, i've seen this costantly depending on the age of the unit.
If it's a pioneer universale remote, you would have to get the schematic for the amp and trace the opto sensor in the from and see with a scope what is the output of the sensor that goes to the micron, could also be the amp stage, sensor or micron that's causes your problem.
If some reason this is all bla bla bla, then just see if the infrered sensor for cold solder joint or a cracked board .
I hope this help
