    I had the same problem, where the amplifier was dead, turned out to be the front microprocessor, hope this helps.

    I have no power to my marantz pm7200 amp, have changed fuses but still no lights nothing! is there a possible cause other than the front microprocessor that perhaps i could try myself as this sounds expensive?!

    Had nothing but problems with this bloody amp,fuse keeps blowing in plug been repaired 3 times. Will not be buying marantz again, only good thing about it was its sound quality.

Could be a power supply failure or a Power "On" switch failure.

Marantz amplifier PM68 replace fuse


You don't see any glass fuses? There is also a non replaceable fuse in the power transformer.

Marantz pm 7200 loudspeakers do not cut off when headphones pugged in


Some amps have a button which you press to mute the speakers when the headphones are plugged in. Sometimes marked "Speakers on off". If it hasn't then a new headphone socket would not be expensive to fit. As long as the amp producers sound I don't see any future problems. The previous owner may have used the headphone socket a lot, and simply wore it out!

Hello i have a marantz pm-47 amp that keeps blowing every time i plug in the power feed to the amp board i have changed the 2 caps on the board but still have the same problem i checked voltage for...


Hi mas_66,
Make sure that the fuse is the same rating with the old one.
If still symptom persist, I've suspected that your output IC is shorted.
You may hang this IC, then power up the unit.
Observe what will happen, if this cure the symptom then this is a clear indication that this IC is shorted and made the fuse blown while it is in the circuit board.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

The fuse keeps blowing in my marantz pm-57 amplifier. It says it takes a T 2.5A 250V fuse. I can only find 2.5A 250V fuses. What relevance is the ''T''.


Goo day sir, the T on the fuse has nothing to do on you marantz fuse blowing up, chances are you amplifier is shorted, check you IC amplifier/power transistor for shorts. Check also your speaker impedance. usually they are 8 ohms. You can use a technician's multitester device to check the impeadance. An imbalance or mismatch speaker can cause a fuse to blow and destroy your amplifier. hope this helps.

Marantz Pm-7200 left channel weak compared to the right


hmmm. Let's start by swapping the wires you are using for your speakers. Double check the wire connections first, then take the left and place iton the right and vice versa.

Marantz amplifier pm-34


the transformer has an internal thermal fuse. If you study the terminations coming out from the internals of the transformer you may notice either a pair of tinned thicker wires or insulated. This may be open circuit. I have often bypassed this internal fuse(they are notoriously common failures) to get a transformer going. You can get a replacement one from a parts supplier if you felt the need. I would just bypass it anyway.:)This may make the amp somewhat "illegal" in the US. We use the MEN (multiple earth neutral) mains power distribution in Australia and the transformer(if melting) would short out to earth and blow the mains primary fuse, the internal thermal is a US requirement.
