Ok... I'm still new to the HDMI input. But I'm going to take a shot in the dark on this one.

Please don't rate me poorly for this, by the way. I'd rather you don't rate me at all as I am not proposing a solution.

This is a guess. I'll be honest about that. So here goes... :P

I read through the manual a bit. (Click HERE for the manual.) I started thinking to myself about your situation...and noticed that you seem to be focused primarily on the receiver itself.

What about the Satellite receiver? Have you checked it to see if you might have to manually switch the audio output to your HDMI output? I know you have video and all, but many devices won't assume that you're switching BOTH the video AND the audio outputs. Sometimes you have to manually switch one or the other, depending on how you're connected.

I would check the SAT receiver to see if you have to switch the audio output to go out from the HDMI output on the SAT receiver.

It has always been my experience that when the speaker icons flash on the audio receiver and you're sending a digital signal to it, the receiver is in fact NOT receiving a signal...
...which obviously means that one is not being sent to it.

Please let me know what you come up with. Again, this was just a shot in the dark. But I am curious either way. :)

Let me know!

SOURCE: sansui g5500 receiver keeps blowing fuse 5amp.

I cannot seem to find any useful information for so I'll just say this from personal experiences repairing amps/receivers. Unfortuneatley there is no good news for you.

The only reason a fuse would keep blowing is if a upstream component is bad or there is a short to ground on the circuit card. If g5500 is a tube set you may get lucky as tubes either open circuit or short circuit. My suggestion, if tube, would be to power up the unit after taking the cover off and notice if there are any tubes that light up at all, will be a quick look and a number of fuses.

BUT FIRST. BEFORE YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF ANY UNIT, UNPLUG FROM WALL AND LET IT SIT FOR 2 HOURS. This gives the unit time to discharge the large capacitors in the power supply. After you wait, then take cover off being very carefull. Notice where there are capacitors (look like miniature coke cans) or any other component, you really want to avoid touching anything, And talking about touchingif you touch a tube wash your hand real well or preferably wear gloves. The oil from our skin will cause the tube to bust because of the interaction.

Another thing you can do is follow the above procedure to remove the cover but don't turn on the power.Carefully remove all the tubes. The unit might "power on" but can't be used. This would indicate one of the tubes is bad. If it does shut-down immediately, shop time.

Pure new-age component only amps/receivers are a lot harder to diagnose as there is solder work involved to test the individual part. So this need to be done in a shop as well.

I would love to help but can't, I can only guide you a bit.

Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Technics SA-DX930. I ran digital optical cable

If the only thing not working is the optical input, it is possible that the optical converter is defective. Without seeing the actual unit and testing the IC, I can't say for sure. If you have test equipment, let me know and we will attempt to track this down.

I have a Sansui 2000A Stereo Tuner Amplifies that powers up but has no sound. the fuse for the 220-250V 2A was blown and replaced. The speaker fuses look good. Should I replace them too or is there...


If the fuse was blown on the 220-250 V side, I am assuming that you are in the UK, if you aren't , but are in the US, change the power setting dial/switch on the back to 100-120v and you might be good to go. Also, I know this may sound silly, but make sure that the speaker selector switch is pressed in or set to a speaker set ( A or B). Love the Sansui gear, have many complete systems myself!

I have the following setup: AV Receiver: Pioneer


Very common problem with today's receivers. Receivers made today don't have a true preamp section in the amplifier and do not amplify the sound to the extent of an older receiver. I have large 15" front speakers on my system, and have stuck with my 15 year old receiver just because I know that a new receiver will not have the power to drive them well. Many of the newer receivers need to be turned up to 50-60% before you can even hear anything from the speakers.

Sansui hdlcdvd26s


see the diagram attached, you can have wrong connection. However clean the contacts and test the wires.God bless you
he speakers are not connected properly. Check the speaker connections. The sound level on the rear or center speakers is turned down. Adjust the sound levels. The receiver is not in the proper surround mode. Set the receiver to a surround mode. The speaker settings are incorrect. Check the settings as per the user's manual.41a9b9c6-64e2-4745-adf3-95fdac1fe686.jpgba7a1620-dfc0-4e45-8fea-6237135735f9.jpeg

Sansui G-5700 protection light wont go on


Try checking the speakers and connections. Those symptoms occur if there is a short. Disconnect all spkrs, turn it on and if it stays on connect one speaker at a time until it shuts off.

I have two sp2 speakers i am using a ipod numark dj machine connected through my 2600 watt peavey amp it keeps blowing out one speaker can you tell me why


The SP2 speakers are rated at 1000 watts PROGRAM which is around 500 watts RMS MAXIMUM. You should be using an amp capable of a maximum of 500 watts a side... Your amp is WAY too big. You will have to throttle it down. The speakers have the protection for the tweeters but NOT for the woofers. At five hundred watts RMS and 8 ohms the current is: P = I^2 * R so I^2 = 500/8 = 62.5 so MAX current is 7.9 amps. I recommend you put a 8 amp FAST BLOW fuse in the speaker leads. If the fuse blows, you have saved another speaker and you are DRIVING them too hard. For greater safety make the fuse a 7.5 amp fast blow. Also get a sound meter. The max on these speakers is 125 Db at a meter distance... and in your venue you should NOT exceed 100 Db to be safe with the OSHA regulations regarding hearing protection... I suspect you are driving the speakers too hard. One side may be getting more bass. The speakers are rated down to 55 Hz. DO NOT boost bass up as you will overheat the speakers. If you are using microphones, be careful of feedback, especially that above hearing range. If you need real low bass, then get an 18 inch subwoofer. No matter, stay within safe sound levels to avoid lawsuits and hearing loss... I know several deaf musicians...

I have an old Sansui 400 receiver. I get no sound from the left channel--both A and B speaker options. The speaker and wires are OK, because they work when hooked to the right channel contacts.


The problem seems to be the left transistor part of the unit. Try this:change A versus B speakers, asuming speaker A was working properly. If still speaker A, now connected to left output does not work, you will probably have transistor malfunction on the left channel of the receiver. Any electronic store will substitute the left transistors.
Good Luck.

No output from my receiver


Some of the older radios are worth money, seeing how they are antiques, so I would research yours, make sure how much it's worth, check tube prices, try to find one on ebay or some other place, and repair it, because chances are it could be worth money.

hope this helps you out
