Check your cables for open circuit cable- and connect your antenna firmly and change its direction.

Nad 7140 fm low frequency hum


This is probably a 60 cycle hum and the problem is more likely confined to the am/fm board, there is a bad ground due to poor solder joints, broken ground wire, an open capacitor, this may not be easy to find, but it is a start.

My AG-V3050 pro-logic receiver seems to have a volume control issue. The test mode volume works fine but when I switch it to fm the sound is very weak, I have to crank it all the way up to get a little...


Hi
Two dump question and than recommendation..
  • First ;During listening FM ,Your " MUTE" switch is "ON" or "OFF" ? if not how about plain STEREO mode ? did you try it ?
  • Second..how about the other Modes , i.e ..CD ,DVD etc. ? same problem or it happens only in FM ?
ok..now the possible solution;
sometimes FM stations do not properly triggers pro-logic circuit and cause such problem and you need to switch to STEREO or A.F.D mode to listen FM (AFM includes sub woofer)..
This is true for FM only and it should not happen in other modes as DVD ,CD,Phone etc..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Sony TA-AV521 I have had this stereo system with surround sound for years. Recently I am finding that the surround sound mode is not working right. There is a lot of fading in and out whether it is on...


CD's and FM radio are created in 2 stereo channels. To listen to them in Surround, artificial processing has to take place in your receiver, so artifacts and fading are quite common when you do this. When you turn the surround off, your stereo is processing the information properly and it will sound right.

I have an ONKYO TX-SR606 receiver and I am trying to listen to FM radio using more than just the center channels. I have gone through the setup screens for the tuner and only Analog choices are available....


Hello,
In reality the correct way to listen to radio or any music source for that matter is in 2 channel stereo. What this means is that the front left and right will play and also the subwoofer. If you absolutely want all your speakers to play while listening to fm, than press the Multi channel button and set it to direct, or any other sound field that you may desire.
Good Luck

With the Marantz SR 440/640 receiver, there is a Mono/Stereo push button. What position should the button be in to listen to a stereo broadcast? jefferj16@hotmail.com


I can't find the manual or a good picture of the front panel but I'll chime in anyway.

Are you sure the button applies to FM? It may be for overall stereo vs mono listening.

If it IS for FM choose Stereo. Mono if the station is so weak that it won't tune in stereo. Usually a receiver will have an Auto function that will do it automatically.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

Does the display show "tuned" or "FM Stereo"? This would normally indicate a good reception. The tuner has a signal level threshold and if the signal gets to week, the receiver mutes to prevent noise in the speakers. Swithing to mono make reception less intolerant. Does the problem also occur, when you switch to mono?
