As I found somewhere on the internet; there are two 470uF/25V capacitors on the power supply board in the sub-woofer that are the cause of buzzing, crackling and then eventually no sound. Go to Radio Shack and buy two Catalog #: 272-1030 470uF/35V capacitors and change them out. They are in the middle of the Power Supply PCB and are close to the long flat aluminum heatsink. Make sure you match the polarity properly when replacing. Your unit will be as good as new and will proibably last forever now.

My stereo keeps turning off when I listen to a station 101.5 in New Jersey


The only thing that can be is that you have set a timer "sleep" function for that station. I have looked at the manual and it states you can programme a sleep setting for a radio station.
The instructions are on page 12. But I have extracted them below:

1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.

2 Press and hold the CLOCK/TIMER button.

3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button

to select "ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY

button. Set the clock to the correct time if "ONCE" or

"DAILY" does not appear.

4 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select

"ONCE SET" or "DAILY SET", and press the MEMORY

button.

5 To adjust the hour, press the or button and then

press the MEMORY button.

6 To adjust the minutes, press the or button and

then press the MEMORY button.

7 Set the time to fi nish as in steps 5 and 6 above.

8 To select the timer playback source (CD, TUNER, USB,

iPhone/iPod, TAPE or AUDIO IN), press the or

button. Press the MEMORY button.

When you select the tuner, select a station by pressing

the or button, and then press the MEMORY

button. If a station has not been programmed, "NO

PRESET" will be displayed and timer setting will be

canceled.

9 Adjust the volume using the VOLUME control, and then

press the MEMORY button. Do not turn the volume up

too high.

10 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power

stand-by mode. The "TIMER" indicator lights up and

the unit is ready for timer playback.


11 When the preset time is reached, playback will start.





The volume will increase gradually until it reaches the

preset volume. The "?" or "DAILY" indicator will blink

during timer playback.

12 When the timer end time is reached, the system will

enter the power stand-by mode automatically.

Once timer:

The timer will be canceled.

Daily timer:

The timer operates at the same time every day. It

will continue until the daily timer setting is canceled.
Cancel the daily timer when it is not in use.

Tip

Shortcut for exporting multiple tracks


While not mentioned in the manual (page 68 dealing with usb export) you can indeed select multiple tracks to export to the fat partition at once. Under the 'wav in/out' menu item on the 'usb export' you'll see a track list. Simply press the 'insert' button next to any tracks you want to export and a check mark will be placed next to the track which flags it for export. When you press enter it will export all the checked tracks as wav files to the fat partition.

My rx 675 wont turn on. the red stand by light flashes and that is it.


Try holding the 'tone control' and 'info' buttons and pressing power. This should allow the unit to turn on. See what the front display says at that point. I tshould show some kind of protect code. If the unit turns on and stays on normally after that, then you may have had a temporary problem that was cleared by disconnecting everything. If it turns back off right away, then you will have to get it repaired as something internal has been damaged.

Cannot get BluRay/DVD system to respond to remote commands. Only the Samsung TV will. I cannot figure out how to switch the remote into giving only BluRay/DVD functions. I've read this unit has a...


Yes, the reason for this is that the BD-Receiver/TV button was pressed twice. This button has 2 modes of operation depending on the color it flashes when you press any button on the remote. If the BD-Receiver/TV button flashes green then it is in TV mode and if it flashes orange then it is in BD Receiver mode. The way to switch between the 2 modes is simple but not intuitive and easily not noticed. Simply press the BD-Receiver/TV button it will light-up green or orange, depending on what mode it is in, for about 1 second. The trick is to quickly press it again BEFORE the light goes out. When this is done the color of the light will change. If it was green it will change to orange and vice versa. Rember, Orange = BD Receiver function Green = TV
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I bought a Sony BDV-E570 in US and it came locked for region 1. As I live in Brazil, I need to run region 4 dvds. Do you know how to unlock it? Thanks


NO LIABILITY IS OFFERED HERE!! THIS IS A HACK!!!


Full procedure for a oneforall remote is as follows:

1. Press DVD
2. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
3. Press 0533

4. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
5. Press 994
6. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
7. Press 00189 (if your oneforall remote uses 4 digit or 3 digit codes, use less leading zeros)
8. Press 1 ( this sets it to key 1 - it flashes twice )

9. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
10. Press 994
11. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
12. Press 00255
13. Press 2 ( this sets it to key 2 - it flashes twice )

14. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
15. Press 994
16. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
17. Press 00095
18. Press 3 ( this sets it to key 3 - it flashes twice )

19. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
20. Press 994
21. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
22. Press 00221
23. Press 4 ( this sets it to key 4 - it flashes twice )

24. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
25. Press 994
26. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
27. Press 00079
28. Press 5 ( this sets it to key 5 - it flashes twice )

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDV-E370 region free:

1. Use the remote that came with the player to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it.
2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The 24p light will start flashing. (Centre light)
3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote.
4. Hard reboot machine (remove power)to prevent the 24p light flashing indefinitely.
5. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback.

This worked for me, but obviously I accept no liability for anyone who tries it on their machine.

Remote control touch screen is not working


Flip ipen the front face of the remote control so that you have access to the buttons underneath. Press and hold the "light" button on the outside right of the remote while pressing the "enter" button to the right of the number "1" button.

THIS WON'T WORK IF YOU HIT THE "enter" BUTTON BETWEEN THE ARROW KEYS.

The screen should now flash PRESS and VCR 2 - press the onscreen key marked VCR 3.

The screen should now flash PRESS aqnd OSD - press the onscreen key marked OSD.

Test all of the onscreen keys. If you find them still unaligned, repeat the process.

Unable to record or playback on new DP 02


It sounds like either the inputs are not assigned or the tracks are not armed for recording (or both).

Here is a quick explanation of the procedure involved in recording with the DP-02 that I posted for another person who was asking for some basic instruction on how to record. You might be missing a step somewhere along the line as for instance you will still see the meters move even if you don't have the inputs assigned or don't have any tracks armed, but the DP-02 won't record anything until you do both.


To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.

1. So you would patch your mixer output, mic or instrument into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).

2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.

(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).

3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.

4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.

This should get you started. The operation of the DP02 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.

Hope this helped.
Cheers,

bd.
