It would be much easier to help you if I knew what type of receiver you have.

You can try this for any type of receiver:

Check to see if the "tape 2" or "tape monitor" or just "monitor" switch has been activated. It should show a small icon or the words in the display somewhere. Even it it does not show in the display, try pressing the "tape 2" or "tape monitor" or "monitor" switch. Make sure the volume is not turned up all the way when you do this, it could cause damage to the speakers or receiver it the speakers come on full blast.

let me know if this helps, if not tell me what the make and model number is of the receiver.

Volume is not working

Sounds like your output transistors are bad, what audio you are hearing is coming from the driver transistors. Could be any number of thing else going on. Try selecting only one channel " a or b" at a time and see if the volume increases. It could be that your speakers have gone bad .If you have other speakers I would try that before taking it to a qualified repairman.

HK AVR70 Unit has been fine. Not sure what happened? With the volume turned up loud you only hear 5% of the sound coming out of the speakers.

Sounds like either the speakers are bad or the output stage is bad. Try different speakers and if not, then the electronics will need to be diagnosed.

Front left and right speakers don't work often. I'll hear a "click" and they'll both come on for a while.

You gotta isolate the problem.  Hook the speakers up to a different stereo to see if you hear sound.  If no sound is heard then you know your speakers are fu.k.d up.  If you hear sound, then reconnect them back to your stereo receiver and make sure the wires are in nice and snug.  Turn the thing on and see what happens when you cycle through the various inputs.  If you get no sound, then you know your receiver is fu.k.d up.  Look for blown fuses and test for bad IC board.  Also vacuum up all the dust inside the unit, cause sometimes over time dust will cause the circuits to not work correctly.  Check around inside to make sure theres no water damage or black smoke on the circuits.

I don't get any front display or any sound when turned on.

Do you hear any clicks? If not, the standby transformer or related circuitry is bad. If you hear 1 relay click...the audio output section is most likely the problem. The first click you hear is the main power relay...and should see display.. the second relay click is the protection circuit relay engaging to let audio to your speakers...if the second click is not heard (it should occur in 3 to 5 seconds) there are shorted output transistors or a shorted output IC trying to blow your speakers with 50 to 75 volts dc. The protection circuit monitors the speaker lines for voltage. They should always read milli-volts only...not even 1 volt.Anyway, good luck

Sony receiver str-de185

Could need repair of bad solder connections or a cleaning of the pot. With the receiver off turn the balance pot back and forth several times, this may be all you need to do. If it improves a couple drops of wd40 on the pot and a couple more turns should clean it up.

JVC RX-9010VBK receiver - premap section won't turn on normally

It sound like a bad connection. The first thing that I would do is tighten all the ground screws that hold the circiut boards and the heat sink to the chassis. If that doen't fix it, flex the circuit boards slighty to see if the relays chick on and off (disconnect the speakers first). It could be on the input board, on the relays themselves or just about anywhere.

No sound

1. check if the amp is in PROTECTION mode (might be a bad speaker or shorted output)
2. check the 'MUTE' switch
3. try to use the FM/AM mode to isolate an input source. If there is sound then check input source.
4. ...still no sound have a techinician check it.

Sound gone

disconnect everything in the back of the unit. reconnect only the cd to the imputs. also,just to be sure, disconnect all speakers(label them). fire it up,play a CD, connect the speakers 1 at a time. If the 1st works you have hope ,if not, try each channel individualy.The one that reduces volume is the problem-maybe shorted cable, bad speaker,or , God forbid-Bad amp Channel. good luck
