SOURCE: Problem with Marantz SR5500 Receiver

Sounds like you have an issue with your electrical circuit. Your receiver could be receiving spikes of current from the electrical wiring in your house.

Review your current electrical situation. Keep in mind that certain outlets are on the same circuit and that running multiple, high-wattage devices on the same circuit can cause issues with some of those devices. Especially when it comes to turning devices on and off.

Many devices take a sudden, rapid charge to power their circuitry the moment you turn the device on. Home audio and HVAC systems are particularly notorious for doing this. Other devices on the same circuit can sometimes suffer influxes of power flow and may either turn off or go into standby mode to protect themselves from the resulting surges.

I've lost audio systems that way... I lived in an apartment building that has wiring most likely dating back into the 40's. I once turned on a space heater on it's max 1500 watt setting and blew my Logitech Z-680 speakers. (The "BOOM" sound that emitted from my subwoofer was AMAZING. I had just blown an amp circuit. It literally exploded inside of the subwoofer. Took pics and everything.)

If you have the means to do so... You might consider re-wiring your electrical circuit. Take into consideration where you're going to run certain devices and wire the system accordingly.

In the meantime, you would want to be sure to buy a HIGH-QUALITY surge protector for the audio system. Spend a few bucks and get a GOOD one with a good warranty on it. Don't use those cheapy ones that we only really use to split the outlet. NOTHING under 1,000 joules.

My receiver sometimes locks itself like that, though. If we have a power outage or the unit is unplugged suddenly, it will keep itself in standby mode until you unplug it, press the power button a few times to discharge any current left in the capacitors and plug it back in normally. Only then will it turn on again.

Let me know what you come up with.

SOURCE: Audio glitch on Marantz SR-19

It's probably not heat due to the Marantz' large frame and heat-synchs.
This could simply be a mismatch of impedance. The amp is 120w per channel, so make sure the speakers can handle this. Check the impedance (ohms) of the speakers and the amp as well. Clipping can be caused by overpowering the speakers, which could damage the speakers in the long-run.
If this is only from 1 source- (i.e.- Blu-ray player or cable) then it could be digital clipping.. This Marantz can decode 96kHz PCM or normal Dolby Digital & DTS. If this is a Blu-ray it may be streaming 192kHz PCM... (but most likely the Marantz will not even attempt to play that audio)
I hope this helps.

If you still have the connector and if your Tuners board is not broken, you can solder it back on if you are careful. If not replace the whole tuner.

Check to see if there are any software or firmware upgrades for your receiver and you PS3. This could be a handshaking issue that is easily corrected with an up grade.

Center channel dosen't work on 10 yr old marantz 500$ receiver. Should I just buy a new one?


I'd do some more investigation first. Have you determined if the amplifier for the channel works or if it's a preamp problem using the built-in speaker setup controls?

With this unit's great audio processing features you might be able to bypass a failed amplifier using the pre-outs and drive an external amp for the missing channel.

You could always just get a modest stereo amp (like a Carver M-100T and bridge it), or use the extra channel for another center speaker or a subwoofer, for example.

I have this problem. it is caused by an o/c mains transformer primary winding. the clicking and flashing light is the stanbyy circuit trying to switch the power on to the main (large) transformer when it gets no voltage out it switches back off

No audio


Go to amp set up menu and make sure it knows the cables you are useing,ie-if the dvd is wired with coax for sound go to input set up and tell the amp you are useing this type of cable.If this is not the problem and the sound is going off one device at a time your amp needs to go back to your dealer.
hope this helps.
