These type of problems usually require some electronic troubleshooting. It is not a good idea to try it yourself unless you have some experience and understanding of electronic circuits. If you have none of these skills, you really should take it in to be serviced by a professional. The display going out is rarely ever a simple fix for anybody without the above mentioned skills. It can also be dangerous poking around inside these things. It does have 120 volts of A/C and could shock you very badly.

This NAD does not have any buttons to control the display illumination as some other types do, so there is no quick fix.

They normally have a 2 or 3 year warranty. If it is within that range since your purchase you really should take it in for a free repair.

    So I get a "thanks for trying"? I guess you didn't know that this is a bad rating. Now my score gets pulled down for giving you some helpful information.

When I power the unit on, the display has a lot of strange characters showing where it use to show like the station, speakers in use a or b or both etc...

Hi Tristan, please try the following reset: First you will want to press and hold the "MEMORY" button then you will want to also press and hold the "POWER" button, the display will show "TEST" at which point you will want to pull the power cord when TEST is displayed. Please note that when you reset the unit it will be like taking the unit out of the box for the first time.

No sound from internet radio

I assume you have connected your amplifier to your local area network so that you can access internet radio. If not, you need to connect the RJ45 ethernet port to your router, then log on to your router to confirm that the receiver is connected as a client. I have done this with my Denon receiver and it works perfectly. Please feel free to ask if you need further assistance. Cheers, Don.

Onkyo TX-SR604: Video in from cable box has taken increasingly longer to display a picture.

I would at least disconnect all units from power for a while and then reconnect to allow the units to reboot.

How to reset a NAD L54 DVD reciever?

This is the technical solution, you have to open the unit:
Locate IC33 and connect pin 6 to ground, connect power, and then remove the ground connection at pin 6.
The unit will then boot up in factory default.

HK AVR35 Receiver - Dolby Digital not displaying or working

If the display is showing as optical/PCM, then the input signal is in 2 Ch Stereo.

Try to change the signal from the source i.e. the DVD player, On the remote, go to audio and press repatedly , the audio would change from audio1, audio 2 .... and so on, depending upon how may have been recorded on the DVD. If the DVD is recorded in Dolby Digital, it may show the audio as Dolby Digital 5.1 on you monitor. Once this setting has been done, your Receiver should automatically detect it and show as Optical/Dolby digital.

Please let me know if you you solve your problem.

Blank display on a Onkyo TX-SR501

try to connect the receiver to a tv via the monitor out from the receiver to the tv. you may be able to see the OSD (on screen display of your settings) change the function on that to turn on the front display. alternatively look on your remote to see if you can turn up the light of the front display.

if these don't work possible that the light of the display has blown.

good luck
