Question about Marantz PMD670 Desktop Digital Voice Recorder

Stop button causes PMD671 to freeze-shows mono instead of stereo

Marantz PMD671 - After three years of working fine, this is what is happening. It is recording in MP3 stereo, and recording is fine. When the Stop Cancel button is pushed to change a track, the screen shows Mono, and it is frozen. I have to pull the plug, wait a few seconds, and turn back on. I have tried resetting all my settings, have tried to push the reset button in the back, and have all new ScanDisk memory cards, which have been formatted. I can use the recorder by only using the Rec Pause button.

    I would have long since dealt with Marantz, but cannot obtain service in Canada. Is there any other solution?

Hello,

  • Sometimes a power surge or discharge can cause problems with the circuits inside of the receiver. Unplug the receiver, wait at least three minutes, then replug the receiver and try to operate it again.

    Unplug the receiver, wait at least three minutes, then replug the receiver and try to operate it again.

    Modern Marantz receivers have microprocessors inside of them, and, like with a computer, sometimes the microprocessor will "hang" and need to be reset.

    Resetting the microprocessor will re-initialize the receiver, so you will need to reprogram your existing settings. Before doing so, it is a good idea to write them down to simplify the process.

    The reset process can be different for different models of receiver, and the instructions are at the back of the manual. For many receivers, however, turning the unit on and then pressing the "Clear" and "Display Off" buttons together for three seconds on the remote will reset the receiver.

    Thanks for contacting Fixya.

      In order to reset the microprocessor you tell me to push "display" and "clear" at the same time. There is no "clear" button on the PMD 671.

      There are no reset instructions at the back of my manual, and no "clear" button to hit "display" and "clear" at the same time to reset.

    Hi,

    Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

    This is a common issue with all Marantz especially over a long period of time like 3 years. I recommend you to take it to Marantz Service .Three years is a long time for electronics. Its ICs are getting weak or gotten weak, hence the problem.

    Thank you for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

    Marantz 2220b does not play in stereo in fm mode. i doxed all pots, & knobs, adjusted pot 304 but no dice. fm light is good, lites up on aux settings


    Do you have an antenna attached to the receiver? If you don't, it might not be getting a powerful enough signal to pull in stereo. Also make sure that the mono button is not pressed or faulty.

    With the Marantz SR 440/640 receiver, there is a Mono/Stereo push button. What position should the button be in to listen to a stereo broadcast? jefferj16@hotmail.com


    I can't find the manual or a good picture of the front panel but I'll chime in anyway.

    Are you sure the button applies to FM? It may be for overall stereo vs mono listening.

    If it IS for FM choose Stereo. Mono if the station is so weak that it won't tune in stereo. Usually a receiver will have an Auto function that will do it automatically.

    How to format a new CF Card without getting a display message that says "must format on PC"?


    I have this same problem. I have 3 cards. 1 of them my Marantz PMD671 just doesn't like, and produces the error message "you need format on PC". I can format it on PC, and use it normally, but the PMD671 will not have it. The card is a cheapo Dane-elec.
    I give up at this point.

    No sound on channels that have SAP instead of Stereo


    You can access the menus using the buttons on the set. Go to audio menu, you'll find a setting that says listen to and have choices of mono stereo or sap, choose stereo.

    Adapting a 4 channel pa system to plug into a marantz cd310 digital recorder


    What is the new Pa System Brand and Model. I am almost certain that every PA System sold has a stereo or mono out put and yes there are adapters to go from mono to left and right (stereo ) on your CD310 recorder. So, the simple answer is to look at the manual or even the back of the mixer to fins out where the audio is coming out of the mixer. The mixer on the pa system will mix the sources together for you. So, you might not need much of anything but a cord to get the audio to your recorder. You can send me the model number and I can give you the exact cord you need or you can take it to a near by store that sells audio pa systems and show them what you have and what you are trying to do and they will sell you a cord that will solve your issue.
