Try the other inputs and see if you have the same problem with them. That will let you know if the problem is the tuner or if it is something else.

Since your receiver does not shut off after a few seconds it should not have an amplifier problem. If it did shut off quickly it is know as the protect mode and normally indicates that you have a blown channel, not always, but normally it is that.

If you get no audio from any function, you may have a digital board problem which is a very difficult problem to isolate and repair.

A couple of things you can do to make sure it is not something like a wrong setting is to make sure that the "Tape Monitor" switch has not been pressed accidentally. If the "Tape Monitor" is engaged it wil appear that everything is normal with the display and functions, but you get no audio from anything unless you are recording on a tape. This can happen even with no tape deck connected to the unit. Study the display closely and see if "monitor" or "tape monitor" is lit up anywhere in the display, or if you have an led on the tape monitor or monitor switch, that led could also be lit up red. If you turn the volume up all the way, do you get a very faint amount of audio? If so, you probably do have the tape monitor engaged.

Also check that the speakers are activated. If you have only one set of front speakers you want to make sure that only those speakers are activated. You will have a button for speakers "A" and "B". Make sure that only speakers "A" are turned on. Some receivers will not have any output if you have both "A" and "B" turned on but only have speakers connected to the "A" speakers.
If your receiver has a button for the headphones make sure that is not engaged as well. Many receivers will not have output to the speakers if the headphones are turned on. Or if you have headphones connected, try unplugging them.

Those the only user type of things that you can do unless you have some good electronics troubleshooting skills and the proper tools. So if you have checked those things and still have no audio you need to take it in for service.

Here is a link that you can get your owners manual from online for free. It is always a good idea to study the owners manual to make sure you have everything connected properly and have the settings correct as well. Just go to this link and put in your model number exactly as it is on the front of the receiver to make sure you get the right manual. If you put in the wrong model number you will get no results when you search for it.

I hopes this helps, and if so a "FixYa" rating would be appreciated.

Marantz SR870 tuner not working

Make sure your FM antena connection is good. A receiver will not pick up an FM signal without an antena. Even a small piece of wire will work to test. If the Tuner section is bad, an external tuner can always be connected to an Aux input. Due to cost, it may not be cost effective to repair this unit.
Hope this helps.

Pioneer vsx 3000 plays fine, but the radio function hums

If memory serves correct, the VSX-3000 is from the late 80's. They are good receivers from that era. From your description, it appears the tuner module could have issues, since only the AM/FM has a hum. If all other inputs sound well, it points the the tuner module. These modules are not easy to repair (PCB with SMD highly tuned parts), and are easiest and cheapest to replace. Many VSX models of that vintage use the same part. Not sure how easy it would be to find one. They are a small PCB enclosed mostly in a silver shielding, with one or two connectors from the inside and screwed to the back of the receiver, where the antena connection is.
Good luck

Hello all;;;;;; i have a pioneer vsx-9500s,,,,the problem is i ran cable to my reciever so my fm radio will work but it doesn't,,,,,,,,i checked the cable on a tv and it worked ,,,,so i know the line is...

Nonsense. FM is included in MOST tv cable subscriptions- make sure your subscription includes this service. Do you have another receiver/tuner to test with?
Check all the connections between the cable entrance and your tuner; eliminate all splitters for testing. If you can get another tuner to work on your cable, it may be time to check into your tuner-
There is no difference in signal level between tv and fm- your receiver is not gonna burn up! If it has a 75-ohm cable input, use it!

Do you have a satellite TV tuner with an AV output on the back of the unit?
If you take the video output from the satellite tuner and insert it into the line input of your TV tuner card.  The audio output from the satellite TV tuner can go into one of two places.  The audio inputs of the TV tuner card or the mic input of your sound card.

Teac Receiver lost AM and FM

Well, if your unit had that happen, it sounds like it is possible. ;)

I would imagine that the radio, like all the other inputs, is in itself a separate unit or circuit board. If something fails on it, it probably wouldn't harm other inputs or the actual amplification itself... just a guess on my but it makes sense. A repair shop could probably open up the case and visually inspect the tuner circuits to make sure there isn't a short or dead something somewhere.

If there is still sound in Jim's case, I would try a different antenna and/or make sure its hooked into the correct antenna hookup. if sound but antenna change doesnt help, it could still be an internal but maybe simply problem.

i'm no pro but that's my 2cents

AM/FM not working

Sounds like you have a front end problem. Sorry my freind, there is no quick fix for this unit. your going to need some pretty expensive equipment to trouble shoot the RF section of this reciver. It most likly will exceed the cost or close to the cost of the unit to have a pro fix it as well. What you can dom if you really like the unit is to go out and purchace an inexpesive unit or tuner and use a tape out of the new unit to an empty input of your olkd unit, so then you will be able to use the new one to tune in the FM again with your old amp.

Clicks when powered on and off; only faint sound from left and right speakers

You may not be using an active input to test. Try attaching an fm antenna and using the tuner. Sone inputs are set to digial and will not make sound with the analog input. The input selector does turn it on. Saves a step.
