No sound problem is power amplifier trouble maybe the IC there is defected or cold solder of joint of the parts.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If i have helped,please click fixya.It is the only way i get paid for my work...

Good luck:

Why won't my Roussand R850MC amplifier play sounds into our multi-room setup?


Sounds like one of the power amplifiers in your Russound has a short. It's not a difficult repair for a good technician. Try a local stereo shop or send it off to Russound.

Russound CA6.4 amp / controller - 3 of the 6 zones can't switch source inputs.


I suspect the inputs will all go into an IC. You just need to trace one of them back till you come across it. Either the circuit around it will be the problem, or more likely the IC itself.

I have a russound tch1 and since the ios 7 upgrade its not working.


Just saw this on fixya - if you still have the system I would recommend going to Russound.com Support under integration to download the updated firmware for the TCH1 or look into the new perkins innovation unit that supports the new My Russound App

I have a Russound Cat 6.6 6 zone receiver that will not power on. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it? Is there by chance a reset on it?


If you are getting no lights on the front of the CAV check the plug connection to the back of the unit as well as the plug on the power strip. Make sure the fuse on the back of the unit is not blown. The specific fuse rating is listed in the manual as well as on the back of the unit. If it is still not powering up you may have to request service from the company.

No sound from Russound ss-4 after connecting to BACK surround speaker connections on the 2807.


Check the speaker setup configuration in the setup menu. Many times the surround back speaker terminals can be assigned to something else like zone 2. They may just be turned off.

Russound CA6.4i zones failing


They should be. I would replace the electrolytics for each of the failed zones. If you do not have a tester, just replace the electrolytics out of hand. The intermittent sound suggests one is likely shorted but not completely or has opened up internally- but not completely.

I have no output on my Russound ca6.4. All lights on console and room controllers appear to function. Input double checked. Could amp be fried?


CA6.4 that has no sound, but all other funtcions are fine, has a problem with protection IC 10 (uPC12370). Check the Cap C28 (2.2uF/50V). If you read any AC
Volatge on that Cap, it means Cap is dry. Replace it with 4.7uF/50V and go back to
your regular duties.
P.S. Since the unit is discontinued, I would love to see basic diagram, available from the manufacturer for download, for easy troubleshooting. I had to spend feew precious minutes to fix that.
