Question about NAD T762 Receiver

1 Answer

Intermittend no audio from digital inputs, flicker video monitor out, volume goes up but not down

Lately the T762 has been acting up a bit. First I noticed that the monitor video out started to flicker with grey background as if the vertical sync is out, the OSD menu's almost useless. Then, intermittently, the digital input often stop working (not just one input, but any of the digital inputs that connected to PS3, Sattelite DVR, and DVD via either coax or optical links all exhibit the same behavior) The latest being that the volume goes up, but barely goes down, condition is worse with use of remote controller.

Except the flicker video out, the other conditions do not exist when the machine is cold. After having used for about 45 min to 1 hr mild use (ie just watching tv and relatively low volume) the condition started to show up.

NAD had yet to responde... has anyone had similar issue and if it has been fixed?

    I took a quick look, and found 2 resistors that while seem to be intact, both have the painted cover burned off so that the color bands are no longer visible. I cannot tell if there's anything else that may have been damaged or if the resistors themselves are actually damaged.

    The location of these resistors R811 and R812 are just north of the big round toroidal coil when looking from the back side of the unit. Perhaps that matches the sector of the board responsible for digital input? :)

    I have an NAD T762 as well and about a year ago it started having the same problem where the digital channels go out intermittently.  Analog audio works fine but anything connected to a digital input, whether optical or coax, won't play at times.  Often it will work perfect for days or even weeks then suddenly no sound.  I have been living with it for over a year now because of the time and potential cost to get it fixed.  If anyone has a solution I would be very grateful!

Since the problem appears only after the unit has been run for a while, I'd be looking for any part close to a heat source. The odd behavior suggests that there is noise on the data lines for the volume control chip and the digital processing areas. Look for a bad 5V regulator +/or bad caps on the 5V line. Also check for poor solder connections in the power supply and final output stages.
Keep us posted.

    I forgot to add in the original note a request for the serial number. NAD is known for making circuit changes within a model series. These are tracked by serial number. Please post that as well. I have requested a copy of the service manual for your model from my local NAD source.

    Keep me posted.

Pioneer receiver -no volume or volume display on screen. As if the function has disappeared. Knob still turns; just NO effect

Did the volume control get an impact? Could be internal damage to the digital control. Did it act up prior to this non-function, like volume went up on a down command or jump up or down when a slight turn was made? Thnose would reinforce a damaged volume control.

All speakers work on sound level test but i have no music coming from rear, center and sub when playing 5.1 dvd. also i am unable to use any of the surrond sound modes. richard

What cable did you hook up your dvd? The 5.1 sound works only with optical cable or HDMI. Check in the input settings wich one is selected. With the analog cable ( Stereo RCA) is not working. Good luck!

Connecting audio from pc to receiver.

What does your sound card have for audio outputs? Mine (M7250N Media Center) has all the expected 7.1 analog audio outputs AND a digital S/PDIF audio output that I run to my receiver's coaxial digital input.

Even if you have just 2-channel audio on your PC the headphone output can be used with an adapter that makes it conenct to a standard RCA audio cable. Run it to any available Linme Level input on the Denon. Get into your sound controls on the PC and make sure your Master Volume is unmuted and adjust whatever else applies to your machine that may affect the audio.

Your monitor is not really a player in this scenario.

Rx 2700 dts keeps flickering on and off causing

Your symptom sounds like a poor digital connection. The receiver is probably configured to prefer the digital feed if both digital and analog are present from a given source. That it blinks the 'analog' indicator means it thinks the digital signal is degraded.

I believe you're using HDMI. If your cable box has either optical or coaxial digital outputs, try one or both and proceed from there. You could also certify the health of the receiver input that's failing by connecting another device (your Blu-Ray?) to it to test it out, or simply borrow its cable.

If the input works with another device THAT would indicate a problem upstream and external from the receiver - cable, output of the cable box. Optical cables are more finicky than coaxial and do not tolerate being routed in tight radious bends.

The front display is blank.

If you can solder, examine the pins for the display itself. In particular, look at the pins at either end. These are the power and ground pins. These often develop poor solder connections. Try resoldering these pins and update this with the results.

NAD T762 - no sound

Try reseating the prologic/output board. Second one from the right (from the front of the reciever), that fixed my no sound problems on many channels. You will have to take out a few screws to remove and reseat it, and while you are at it clean the connections.
