Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Greetings! This tuner won't power up. It smells like the transformer is fried. Do you know if and where I can get a replacement X-former for this? There's only one number I see on it and it's: TKK SP54008S D-1 Thanks!!!

    Hey, basically I'm just looking for another transformer like the one described above. The unit is a Nakamichi ST-7 Stereo Tuner w/ Schotz Noise Reduction.



    Thanks for your help

    Ok this is my first time here. Here's brilliant question. Do I need to accept before you reply?


    peace

  • Chief Brody Apr 24, 2008

    I meant to say "push accept before you reply".

  • Chief Brody Apr 24, 2008

    Thanks! Should I send them an email and see if they can help, and then come back and push the accept button?

  • Chief Brody Apr 24, 2008

    Thanks! I sent them a message. Are they the only place that can help? Anyway, I'll give them time to respond. So I guess I push accept now.

    I just need a replacement transformer.

  • Chief Brody Apr 24, 2008

    Yeah, I tried that number and another one that they gave me, but no dice. However the last person I spoke with gave me a great suggestion. It's kinda like a no-brainer. If I'm looking for Nakamichi parts, then wouldn't I just go to the Naka website, for starters? If they don't know where to get parts then who would? I guess I was thinking, for some reason, that they were out-of-business and long gone.

    Anyway, I went there and I found a few support contacts, but it didn't look like they're into much customer service.

    BUT, in searching for the Naka website I stumbled onto what seems to be an awesome Naka parts and service site. http://www.eslabs.com/nakamichi.htm

    I'm sending them an email and I'll see what happens. So I guess I'll take it from here. Thanks BDG for your time. I appreciate your quick response and your personalized style of help and feedback.

    peace and joy

    Thanks man, but I think I found an awesome Naka authorized parts and service site as I was searching for the Naka website. http://www.eslabs.com/nakamichi.htm

    thanks again for your time.

My HTR 5460 won't stay on


try pressing power while holding the 'fm/am' and 'input mode' buttons. This will tell you what part of the circuit is making it shut down. It should show something like I PROTECT, PS PROTECT, etc.

I hooked up a Niles speaker switcher to my pioneer vsx 521 k receiver.I tested it and immediately there was a smell and the receiver powered off . It won't come back on, is it a fuse or have I rui


The audio outputs have been fried, plus the main fuse blown. The power transformer will need to be checked for a open primary, I suggest you get a estimate first. My feeling is that it will be expensive.

Won't power up at all


If there is no power on on the primary side of the transformer look for a open fuse.

Greetings, my rx v663 will not power up no lights not anything.What could be my problem?


These amplifiers have a fuse link inside of the main transformer. If you want to, you can open the unit up and see if you have the main power into the transformer. Then see if you have any voltage on the secondary of the transformer, if not then the internal fuse has opened (usually due to heat). The tranformer will need to be replaced. Yamaha will not sell parts to consumers, so you may need to take it to a local repair shop for repairs.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

I was playing my ipod thru my Pioneer VSX-518 tuner and noticed that sound was coming trhough only 2 speakers. While playing the music I toggled through the advance surround options. When it came to...


I believe that smell is the death of a semiconductor in the surround power amp. How loud did you have it? As for an inexpensive fix, there will be hours of diagnostic work, and the parts can be VERY hard to find and expensive.
There is also the issue of safety. You should likely take it in for repair. Receivers aren't as dangerous as televisions or microwaves but they often have the two live 110V wires exposed near the primary of their power transformer. If you don't know what that means I strongly recommend you don't fix it yourself. These can also be dangerous even when they're unplugged, due to high value, medium voltage capacitors

Hope it hasn't been fried but unit is not powering up via remote or unit power-on buttons. Have tried different power socket.


Try checking the internal fuse(s). Then check the on/off switch. The other thing to consider is the transformer.

This is my problem with DENON AVR 700RD: I lost remote control and I don't know how to turn on it.... I've tryed selecting "TUNER" or "CD" etc. but nothing has happened... What can I do? Can you help me,...


Hold the following TUNER button and VIDEO SELECT button and turn the main POWER button on. This will initialize the microprocessor and start the receiver. After this you can use the POWER button normally to power on/off the receiver.

Unit won't power up completely


The clicks you hear are the relay that completes the circuit for 110V AC to the main power transformer. Mine had the same problem and here's how I've gotten it to work. A lightning strike near our house caused it to fail, and I traced it to the power transformer relay activation circuit. The tuner and amp were fine. I found a bad transistor in the relay circuit, but didn't have a replacement on hand, so I soldered a jumper wire across the relay switch connections on the power transformer circuit board. This connects the 110V AC directly to the power transformer. DC Power to the amp and tuner circuits will still be controlled by the power switch, but the transformer will be supplying all the AC voltages to the main board. If there is a real problem with the circuits that load the transformer or the transformer itself, then the fuse will blow. If the fuse doesn't blow then I suspect the problem is just in the power sequencing circuit itself, that is not needed for operation other than to make the unit "Energy Star Compliant". A lot of electronic items have a transformer that is not switched, and only fused, so that the supplies are available at all times.

Power off


check the fuses, there is one (fu1) behind the transformer and 2 under the transformer board (fu3, fu4)
