Hi Seamus377

You have a faulty input selector chip by the sound of it. First, power the amp off at the wall for 30 mins, then fire it up again to see if that resets the problem.

Hopefully that fixed the problem, if not, you may need to get a tech to look at it. The input selector chips are quite sensitive and susceptible to failure, producing the symptoms you speak of. They can be damaged also and fail at any point if subjected to a voltage spike. Here is why they fail

When outboard devices such as

  1. TV that has an outside aerial
  2. VCR with Switch Mode Power Supply
are plugged into your amp, the RCA connectors connect the center "signal" connection first, then the earth ring. Until the earth ring connects, any potential difference or stray voltage present on the earth of the connection being plugged in, can result in as much as 50volts being spiked into the input selector chip. I have seen scores of amps damaged by this.

How to avoid it

Before making any connections to your amp, FIRST
  1. Disconnect external aerials
  2. Turn off all equipment at the wall socket
  3. connect all the gear and aerial LAST
  4. fire the gear up
Good luck, hope you get it sorted out.

How do i get a cd player to hook up to a sansui au 9900a amplifier as well as the sansui tu 9900 tuner


You can connect the CD player to the amplifier using a standard set of RCA cables (left and right channel / red & white connectors). Connect the CD output to an input on the amplifier (usually one designated for CD or possibly "Aux") Then select this input source in order on the Amplifier.

There would be no reason to connect the CD player to a Tuner. Not even sure a tuner whould have any inputs in order to connect a CD player.

All input sources eg. DVD, cab/sat, cd, tuner etc have audio out of the amp ... but not the tv. Can someone help me with this one?


Have you checked to make sure the TV connection is from the correct TV output? The TV is not on mute? Recheck all connections. The amp obviously works ok.

How do I connect a dvd player with surround sound?


This depends on how you have it hooked up. You're going to need a Tuner. A simple method is to connect only the Yellow RCA cable (or composite cables) to your T.V. Then connect Red and White RCA cables to the Tuner/Surround sound system you're using on which ever input you're comfortable with. I.E. CD/AUX/TAPE..etc. Change your tuner to that input, and you should get your surround sound through the speakers. Make sure you change the input on your T.V. to what ever video source you got the wires in. If your tuner allows you to hook up a video source to it, you can just hook it up to the tuner and run the DVD player off the tuner only. The first option helps avoid confusion if your tuner isn't set up for any other devices to play video through it.

Yes, also.... I am trying to use my AUX input but "AUX" is not an option on the Source menu. The only options are tuner and CD.


In order to use the Aux, you must connect the source to aux port, then using the source select aux and you should hear the sound coming out.

SUV500 2-Channel Amplifier: Hi! can I connect another technics cd-player,sl...


yes you can connect another cd player to the DAT input of your amp.
input connections like DAT, TUNER, CD, AUX etc (except phono) is just to differentiate between what sources are connected, the amp cannot tell what source is connected and will output the sound no problem.

as for the remote operation, if the 2 technics cd players are switched on at the same time they're going to do what you command from the remote together but you'll obviously be listening to 1 at a time.

Function Selector Bypasses Input Sources


Hopefully this post isn't too late... That receiver has the ability to disable certain inputs. The easiest thing to try is to do a factory reset.
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.

Unfortunately, this clears out all of the other settings on your unit. It should, however, re-enable the inputs.

Let me know if this helps!

Getting occasional popping sound through speakers. My system consists of preamp, amp, turntable, tuner and cd player. It seems to happen when only using cd player. Hasn't happened when using only tuner or...


Describe your system in greater detail. Does the preamp have a mechanical selector for the tuner/phono/CD or does it have a digital selector that you can operate with a remote? The problem might just be a dirty selector switch that need to be sprayed with Deoxit contact cleaner. It could also be bad cables so try swapping cables with the tuner.

Using Aux Input in a Pioneer AVH-5700DVD


I'm not sure what aux input you're using - but be advised that if you've plugged your mp4 player directly into the RCAs in the back that won't work - those are outputs, not inputs.

You need to use a Pioneer CD-RB10 (or CD-RB20 if you're running a cd changer, XM tuner, or any other IP-bus component) in order to get an auxiliary input.

If you've done that - you need to go to the initial settings menu and set aux input to 'on'. Instructions are in this link, page 89.
