Check the speakers impedance. it should be greater then 6ohm otherwise you overload the system. Also, if the speaker sytem is rated (in Watts) below the amplifier's power it overloads the amp at higher volumes.

No! there is a problem in the audio output ic's "more than likely shorted parts" check to make sure there are no shorts in the speaker wiring, if okay! I'am afraid it is bad outputs.

Do have an idiots guide as to how to wire up the SR-4200 to a TV


I will interperate this as:
"So you want to play sound through your Marantz SR-4200?"

You need to clarify what sort of system setup you have, however i will put down a few ways to wire this up to your TV.

If you have a Set-top-box that gets the TV Channels, that is where the sound comes from. If you have a TV that plugs straight into the wall, you will have to get the sound from the TV. Grab a RCA Stereo cable - (White and Red heads, if you don't know what they look like, Google it).

If you are unclear about this, i have tried to make a diagram down the bottom to explain how this is to work. What you will do is Take the sound from the Set-Top-Box or TV and reroute it into your fantastic Marantz SR-4200.

1. Plug Red Plug into the the Red Slot, and White into the White on the back of your set-top-box or TV Out (if you get it around the wrong way, the speakers will be reversed.)

2. Plug the other end of the cable into the back of your Marantz SR-4200 in the TAPE input or VHS input as they are analog signal inputs. Turn on Marantz SR-4200 and turn it onto Tape or Vhs (depending on where you plugged it in).

[Set-Top-Box or TV out] >-------> into >------> [Marantz SR-4200]

If you still don't get it, then try searching You-Tube for a guide "Plug Tv into Stereo". I myself couldn't turn up anything useful

Marantz SR-940


Just finish repairing Marantz SR 940 with no sound output. Problem was a clamped speakers relay located behind the speakers lugs (red and black post connectors). To reach the relays you must remove the little circuit board behind those colored connectors et unsolder the posts. There is 2 relays, one for A set and one for B set of speakers. Very EASY when you know the solution!!

Total loss of sound...what to do?


please repeat your setting first- and then disconnect all speaker out.
connect your speaker one by one until you find the bad one and change it-you can also apply contact cleaner spray over volume control and move it many times-please do not forget yo unplug headphone jack first.

Clicks when powered on and off; only faint sound from left and right speakers


You may not be using an active input to test. Try attaching an fm antenna and using the tuner. Sone inputs are set to digial and will not make sound with the analog input. The input selector does turn it on. Saves a step.
