Use the black wire in the wiring harness, and connect it to the black wire in the car's harness. This grounds the receiver. If you have a chassis ground (a braided cable) for the receiver, ground it to any metal screw in a metal frame piece under the dash.

How to ground onkyo cp-1036a


If the receiver doesn't have a ground lug, you can loosen one of the cabinet screws and connect your TT ground wire to the chassis that way.

Grounding issue


The preferred approach is to run a ground cable from the turntable to the ground post on the back of your preamp or receiver. This keeps buzz and hum out of the audio signal. If your receiver doesn't have a ground post, you'll have to connect the ground to one of the RCA signal jacks. In both cases the question is, when you have two grounds, which one to connect? You'll have to determine this by trial and error. My guess is you'll get the best results by connecting both, so start with this arrangement. Connect the turntable's audio cables from its RCA jacks to the receiver, select the phono input, and turn it on (with the volume turned down). Turn up the volume until you can hear hum or buzz. Then connect a piece of wire to the ground post on the turntable panel and touch the other end to the ground post on the receiver or to the RCA jack/plug's outer ring. If the hum/buzz goes away, you're good to go and can connect the wire permanently. If not, try the ground cables individually and use the connection that works best.

Receiver turns off after DVD is turned on. Clicking noise. Check speaker wires


It's a issue with alot of these Receivers I personally had this issue on my Receiver. the issue is a ground Fault the protection mode for over current in some of Yamaha's and HK receivers are the Two main Relay's if the Ground inside the amp is lose or is causing a Ground Loop this will happen. as you turn on the DVD there is a slight leak of Positive current tru a bad Capacitor and Resistor on the DVD player causing the Ground to send a instant burst of -Vcc to the Amp's ground setting the Protection mode on. but because it's not caused by the Receiver it self sometimes it looks like the Amp just shut it self down. In better words Try to Ground the DVD before you hook up again. use the Outlet Ground also if you use a 1K resistor on the ground wire it will help to keep any noise from coming in. Let me know. Marcelo Good Luck.

My AV receiver turns off a couple of seconds after I turn it on. I did what the manual said, unplugged the power source and removed all of the speakers but it continues to do the same thing. Anything else...


Hi,
you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    I have an older model Harman Kardon AVR and have started hearing humming from the speakers that are attached to it. Is my receiver going bad or is there something else I need to do to fix this problem?

    We got a micromark cctv system mm23214 every time we plug the camera in the receiver gose off \??????????????


    My guess is you've got a serious ground potential difference between the camera and the receiver or a shorted cable in between. Disconnect the cable at the receiver and measure for ac voltage between the ground (shield) and ground on the receiver.

    If there is none, try just connecting the cable to the receiver.

    My home theater speakers make a constant hum whenever my receiver is on. The loudness of the hum changes with the volume control, and goes away entirely when the system is muted. All components are plugged...


    jd40,
    Sounds like a grounding issue. The first two places to look into is the powered subwoofer and antenna. During your last test, did you leave the FM antenna and subwoofer connected? Many times the hum is directly related to the antenna and/or the subwoofer and to how they are grounded; creating a ground loop through the receivers ground on the outlet. If the antenna is grounded to the dwellings wiring, hum is inevitable and sometime you can get a ground loop hum from how or how & where the subwoofer is grounded. Try taking them completely out of the loop.

    Also try taking it further back to the basics, start with the receiver plugged into a known good grounded outlet with no surge or line conditioner in the loop and nothing connected to the receiver, nothing. Use one speaker and different wire to test each speaker output while in tuner and any other mode but phono. With no signal, you will either get nothing (no hum or static) or just static in the tuner mode. No hum is a good sign. Some systems will mute the speakers if no signal is connected to eliminate the static from being produced through the speakers but a ground loop hum will most likely still be produced even in mute. If you get a hum when nothing is connected to the receiver, try looking into getting a better grounded outlet, even maybe to a different dwelling.
