Old Quadraflex 777 receiver problem

This is an older receiver...one with tubes and knobs.
the right channel to the speaker keeps buzzing and blurting music in stops and starts, at a loader volume then the other. i checked the wires, the speaker is fine...what is it?
a tube?
what do i check
and how do i clean the 'pots' on the volume knob?
this is a question for an older tech...i imagine.

SOURCE: Channel Problem

It could be a bad balance control potentiometer or just broken/cold soldering joints due to the age. Bring it in a repair shop. Thanks. ebcelectronics

Testimonial: "If I didn't say it before, thank you. You were right on the mark with the soldering joints. I took it to an electronics shop and they fixed the problem well. It wasn't cheap to say the least."

SOURCE: why do the volume numbers on old receivers start

This type of calibartion is known as a logarithmic scale.
The numbers refer to decibels below the maximum output of the amplifier section of the reciever, or decibels of attenuation (making smaller/quieter).

Without going through logarithim theorey, the logarithim (base 10) of 1 is 0. So if 1 is the maximum output of the amp, as you turn the knob down from maximum you are adding more and more attentuation to the output (relative to maximum) and so the loudness of what you hear goes down, even though the number on the scale is going up !

Most peolpe associate decibels with sound levels, but anything can be measured in decibels, so long as there is soemthing to reference it against.

SOURCE: Right speaker is distorted with low volume, left

There is something wrong with the right channel amplifier, you need to get this equipment serviced.

Sansui AU-D33 Lh speaker channel not working.


As the channels are identical you can use the good channel has a guide to the bad one. First thing is to look around see if anything does not look the same as the right channel.

If nothing obvious stands out, with the power on, using an insulated screwdriver touch the two channels one at a time. Keep away from the power supply and anything that is common to both channels. The channel will buzz once touched. Depending which points you touch them. The right channel will tell you if it should buzz at that point. Work backwards from the speaker outputs if you can. If you hear a buzz on the left channel then it is working at that point, if it produces the same sound on the right.
Using this method you should track down the part that has gone.

Only get sound out of right side both a and b


Good day sir, Hi, your Philips receiver trouble can be any of the ff:
  1. your receiver left fuse is blown, check if it has a user fuse at the back. or
  2. your main IC amplifier for the left channel is bad. you need to replace that IC, but check first the wiring of the speakers.
  3. Check your receiver left speakers if it is producing a soft hum, to do this turn down the right channel, or adjusting the balance knob to the left, or simply remove the speaker connection of the right channel. place your ears on the left speaker as you adjust the volume up and down, do you hear a soft hum that goes up and down also? If yes the problem is on the source section before main amplification, usually the pre-amplifier stage, If you hear no hum at all. problem with the main left amplifier. The main amplifier is usually a single IC for both left and right channel, OR one IC amplifier for the left and one for the right, in both cases, replace the bad IC.

Yamaha RX-550 receiver. Presently, no sound on left speaker channel. Previously, no sound on right speaker channel could be cleared by rotating the Input nob.


were you able to solve this one ? I have the same problem with mine. The only way to clear the lack of sound in one of the speakers is to rotate the input knob !!

Right side speaker barely works


Likely the control is old and dirty.  It is known as a rheostat on older units and often a little contact cleaner on it will work.  A simple thing to try that might work is to rotate the knob back and forth, left to right, each time going to full stop.  do this several, several times.  See if this makes things better.  Of course, the assumption I am making is that the right speaker is operating normally.  If you switch out the left speaker for the right, and the problem persists, on the same side, it is the receiver.  If the problem now appears on the left side, it is a speaker issue and not the receiver.  Good luck and let us know how it goes.

SR4300 Centre Channel


Hi...

Try another GOOD speaker on your centre channel.
If the buzz ....buzzes off, it's a bad speaker.
If not , It's in the power amp section on the unit.
