    I just tested it. The static goes on when the volume
    increases but stays on when you decrease the volume. The volume of the static, of course, increases or decreases as the volume turns up or down. But the static is not always on.
    The receiver is a Denon AVR-2800. It is almost 9 years old and I really like the sound and would like to fix it, if possible. Thanks so much for your help. Joanna

    Hi Joanna



    Does it relate to the actual turning of the control? Or is it just when the vol is very loud



    regards

OK, if it feels like it relates to the turning of the control, then the vol control may be noisy and will need a spray with contact cleaner lubricant. Do you think you can do this, I can talk you through it. If not, a repair man or someone with electronic experience could do it for you.

Turn the stereo off, then quickly turn the volume knob back and forth for about a minute to get rid of most of the grime that is causing the static. Then turn it back on. if that doesn't work...

You can try cleaning out the potentiometer.

If that still doesn't work. replace the potentiometer

Doesn't sound like a fuse. They don't fix themselves when you reach 75%.

Try shaking the volume knob while in the 30-50% range and/or try (with the power off) rotating the volume knob numerous times from 0% to 100%. If when you plug it back in it responds ANY differently, you might have a bad volume potentiometer. If when you shake the knob you hear static or intermittent sound, you have a bad volume pot.

The only other thing I can think of is that the wiper of the volume pot is not in contact with the windings inside the pot until you reach the 75% mark. When the volume comes on at 75%, does it start off kind of "static" then come in loud and clear? Also try this.... adjust the volume pot to 74% (or when the sound just begins to come on). At this point shake the knob. If you hear static, replace the volume pot.

Unplugging it when still on shouldn't cause any damage... in fact it probably hasn't considering it works at 75% plus.

There is persistent low volume humming sound coming through all the speakers when the reciever is on, it is just loud enough to interfere with the audio I'm trying to listen too (especially dialog on the...


You could have done a very slow damage to the Yamaha if your UPS was not a pure sine wave type ( on line UPS ). Most of the UPS we get are called Off line type and are far cheaper than the On line pure sine wave type. The out put of the Off line type UPS is not a sine wave ( the natural waveform of AC voltage ) and strains the Power supply circuit of any device connected to it.
Now if the humming sound is the same irrespective of the volume position, it is a power supply problem. You might be having a leaky rectifier diode or capacitor. First change the diodes and see if its ok then change the main filter capacitors too.

Right channel has static like noise.


Since no specific model number is provided I can only offer generic advice.

Static noise can be due to radiated noise in the environment leaking into cabling or it could be a dirty mechanical connection or control like a volume or balance knob or an oxidized contact that you rarely use, like a Tape Monitor. I'd turn the unit off and reseat every RCA connector with a twisting motion, rotate and flip every switch throughout its travel a number of times and see what happens.

Excessive noise in my speakers


usually, it is background noise. Scratchy background noise. Gets worse the louder I turn up the volume. I ran a test on all the channels and it seemed to be the subwoofer channel. I've unpluged the subwoofer but that didn't help. I have also noticed that my receiver doesn't turn up nearly as loud as it used. I usually watch DVDs at a volume level of about 15 on my Denon and that's quite loud. But now, 15 isn't that loud at all. I went to Best Buy where I bought all of this equipment and they immediatly told me it was suge protector issue and wanted to sell me a high-end surge protector. Perhaps they are right but not sure why it began rather suddenly. Probably not helping you much.

Static comes from speakers


I think it's a grounding problem. Actually, it's a necessity for all audio-video equipments to get grounded properly. If you don't have a ground connection in your AC plug, your receiver will collect more and more static electricity. As a matter of fact, it decreases the sound quality that you can get from your equipment. I think that the effect of your reaction (slapping the receiver) isn't coincidental. When you touch any metal surface on your receiver (even while slapping) you condact the static electricity to the ground. I've had a same sort of problem with my receiver. Especially when I connected my laptop computer to the receiver, I heard an annoying distorted sound from the speakers. I found out that it was ground loop, which occurs when the negative (common) signal of the source coincides with the one of the receiver's. As a solution, I grounded my amp, changed all wires with new and shielded ones, and purchased an AC filter. Then, I got rid of the noise. I have to say that the AC filter (Belkin Pure AV Surge Protector, it also includes an AC signal filter)benefited me the most.
