    [QUOTE=ba2vy]The Radar Detector Detector that OZ Police use is made in Queensland by Stealth Micro Systems, the unit is called the Stalcar MD3, has been revised 3 times since its' launch about 3-4 yrs ago.

    VICPOL Radio Electronics Division used to, (don't know if the still do) convert siezed radar detectors into radar detector detectors. I guess their philosophy is why pay for one when you can convert a siezed one! At the end of the day it's all a game of cat and mouse.



    Correct. All they had to do was reverse a capacitor and the RD became an RDD! They also fitted a modified snout to the front of them to increase the signal reception.

Standby light flashes and the reciever wont turn on, how do what must i do


Hello Tony
the problem is in the power supply circuit
the DC detector identifies the problem and wont start unless you repair it.
the internal supply +15v -15v these 2 regulators and the capacitors around it makes this problem.
if you know how to service it, its easy if not, you have to take it to a technician to do it for you.
Good luck.

Hello. When we turn on our DVD player, it all of a sudden does not work. IT says "welcome" and OPen, but all at once flashes "protection" and shuts itself off. How can we fix this...


This is an error message which indicates that there is a hardware error on the circuit and needs correction and replacement before the feedback will reset the processor.
So you will need to disconnect the drive sections and see if the error message changes. If not there are shorting within the main board and needs a confirmation by elimination and voltage checking.

My receiver turns on .. but the amp doesn't .. and the screen flashes "protect" for some reason.. and all other buttons are non responsive.. can you help me?


If PROTECT , PROTECTOR or a P is flashing in the display of the A/V receiver, there may be an incorrect connection or an improper setting. Try following these steps to resolve this issue:

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the A/V receiver status after completing each step.

  1. Check the speakers and speaker wires for proper connections.
  2. Reduce the volume level.

    IMPORTANT: If the A/V receiver is used at maximum volume level, it may enter the PROTECT mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the A/V receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors.

  3. If applicable to your model, disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
  4. Ensure the top of the A/V receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
  5. If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high.

    IMPORTANT: Some A/V receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies through alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specific information.

  6. Unplug the AC power cord for approximately 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.

If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

Onkyo tx-sr602 as soon as i turn receiver on it flashes protect


Does it display any message like "Protect" or something similar? Do you hear a relay click on then off?

Did the amp just not power up one day or did it stop working while you were listening to it? Finally, do you have teenage kids who might have been listening to your receiver and would have "neglected" to tell you that after listening to their music it suddenly stopped working?

It could be an internal fuse but chances are its something that requires a technician to repair (like the output transistors).

Marantz CD63-SE fails to load/read/recognize disk - disk spins but "insert disk" is the only result


I think the laser needs re-aligning or the laser unit itself is faulty. If you can find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

Remote


Hold the remote up yo a video camera and you will see code flashing from the LED in the remote. If it is dark, the remote is faulty. A common fault is for the ceramic resonator(orange pack) either dry joints(it is a resonator) fractured wires, or just fail with no reason, thus rendering the clock for the main proc. not working. Another common fault is the LED being dry jointed. or the LED faulty. All of these easy to fix. Sometimes the power supply may fail to the detector on the front panel of the amp, The detectors sometimes go. all these things to be checked, but check the remote for infrared light with a camera first. Good Luck, a rating of "FixYa" for these technical tips would help my profile, Cheers
