the protection circuit is your amp is turned on by itself or its protecting your speakers from burnt output transistor stage of amplifire circuit.sometimes it happense because of bad solder joints of the printed circuit board.if you are technicaly sound please resolder all the joint of pcb power and putput sections.if you need more help please comeback.
try to do it by yourself.

blinking power lights are a factory setting to inform the customer there is an internal electronic fault. and the unit needs to be repaired by a service pro in 99% of cases the owner can do nothing to fix it.

send it in

It goes in the Tape Monitor Loop (either one: DCC or Tape). OUTs to INs.

The EQ itself has a Tape Loop to replace the one it uses and allow pre- or post Tape recorder Equalization.

I am thinking of replacing my now very old JVC AX 330 amplifier with a Marantz PM7003 amplifier and want to know if this is a suitable replacement in terms of power output etc.

You, sir, are a rare adherent to stereo-only electronics. Are you replacing it for cause (showing its age)? The PM7003 is only 2 x 70 watts like the JVC but it also has separable preamp/amps so you COULD upgrade or augment the power output with external amps and still control it all locally.

Of course, any current AVR's do that too and bring digital sources and multichannel audio to the mix for as little as the PM7703 may cost.

Yes, the impedance is perfectly acceptable, just that it wont be a perfect acoustical match.

The fuse keeps blowing in my marantz pm-57 amplifier. It says it takes a T 2.5A 250V fuse. I can only find 2.5A 250V fuses. What relevance is the ''T''.

Goo day sir, the T on the fuse has nothing to do on you marantz fuse blowing up, chances are you amplifier is shorted, check you IC amplifier/power transistor for shorts. Check also your speaker impedance. usually they are 8 ohms. You can use a technician's multitester device to check the impeadance. An imbalance or mismatch speaker can cause a fuse to blow and destroy your amplifier. hope this helps.

Marantz PM-34 Problem

Hi there

The part that you speak of is called the emitter stabilizer resistor. It is common to the output pair on one channel. You will find that the large "output" transistors mounted to the heat sink either side of this resistor will most probably be faulty.

Best not to run the amp at all whilst in this condition.

To be sure that you have an effective repair, you will need to change both these parts, and also the "driver" transistors that connect to the outputs. They too are in symmetrical positions close to the the output transistors. You should also check that the 3 legged resistor you mentioned is measuring its correct value, and check all other low value resistors in the output stage area to that channel.

If you are not familiar with repairing this sort of equipment, perhaps you can find a repair guy with some experience on audio equipment, then this work should be all he needs to do to repair the amp. I would also ask him to "blanket resolder" the output/bias stages and power regulator stages in the amp as problems with heat stressed cracked/failed soldering and dry joints often cause these amps to blow the output transistors.

BE SURE THAT THE CORRECT PARTS ONLY are used for the repairs. Different transistors could cause future problems with the amp. The parts can be obtained relatively easily from a marantz distributor(we can find one in a country near to you). OR if you can give me the markings to each of the parts you need, I can provide you with an international source to get them from.

The amp is decent HiFi, and worth repair. Happy to provide you any assitance I can, Good Luck

My Marantz PM-45 integrated amplifier will occasionally cut out by switching off a relay.

Hi HouseofBlues

The problem you are facing is the speaker protection is turning on to prevent the amplifier from damaging your speakers. It will need some service work done to it to prevent it from happening. I suggest you get it attended to sooner than later, as the problem will be caused by dry solder joints that will need to resoldered, or a semicinductor that is failing. If you are a gun with a soldering iron, you could do this yourself. Check about parts of the amp that runs hot, particularly transistors and resistors in the output stages. resolder all output transistors, and any parts that are mounted to a heatsink. Also focus on areas of the PCB that has discoloured. This is often where the problems occur.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :)
Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.
