Question about Marantz SR8500 Receiver

2 Answers

I bought an 8500 second hand with no remote. I bought a Marantz 1400 remote and could not get it to communicate on several commands (including volume). Then, the sound starting fritzing out when I first turned it on and then got fine as the unit got warmer. Now, however, it powers on and no sound. A message - Check DSP ROM - pops up in the window when I power on. Thoughts?

    At the risk of sounding stupid, which other button do I press on the front panel besides the speaker button? I don't have the reciever with me right now. Thanks for getting back to me so fast - I will try this on Monday and report back if it worked,

    "Sometimes, for Reset you do not have to Press ONLY memo and Clear Button for 3 Seconds."

    Not quite sure what you mean by this - press only those 2 for 3 seconds?



    Itried that and got nothing then tried pressing down each separately and got nothing. It only quickly cycled through what source I was on and DSP mode on the screen - no indication of a full system reset.

Your Digital Signal Processor is probably shot.

Unplug the unit, then replug it and do a processor reset (in the onscreen menu) and see if that helps.

Try using an analog signal and see if it plays that alright. I hope that this unit was not a refurbished as alot of them have had DSP problems and it can be a costly repair.

Let me know how this works,

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi,

That is a Common Message on this Model. The only User Fixable Option is to Try and Reset it.which is activated by simultaneously pressing the Speakers A/B button and the button on the front panel while the power is on. Just keep them pressed until it finishes cycling through the reset and returns to normal.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If you are using a universal remote, it may be sending too many commands too fast, and locking up the receiver. Try increasing delays between commands in the remote. You may need to wait a second or two after powering up the receiver.

Marantz bd 7004 stopped responding to remote commands after firmware upgrade


Did you upgrade your firmware because you had a problem with the player to begin with? Or was it working fine all along?

If everything was working fine before the upgrade, I would revert the firmware back to its previous version.

Do you know the remote code for the Marantz SR-18ex receiver? I want to control it from my Comcast remote and can't locate a remote control number.


The stock remote for the SR-18EX is the RC-18SR - that's the one it shipped with when new. You can also use the RC-2000, RC2000 MkII, and I have an aftermarket RC-1400 that works perfectly with my SR-18EX, AND offers 15 macros instead of the standard 4 you get with the stock remote.
