    It's not a connection problem. All inputs act the same. There is a protection circuit, What sets it off or activates it?

    I'll try what you said about the voltage and accept it. If this doesn't fix it, am I charged again for more assistance?

    same problem like you to another user.

    I came across a PM-5 amp, and it looks like it was in a basement for a while collecting moisture and getting surface corrosion. The unit powers on, but I do not hear the speaker relay click I am familiar with on my other Marantz units. There is no output, should I be taking it apart to clean the relays. Are there relays? Should I be looking for other stuff?
    Thanks



    what he did.

    the company tech told him.

    Yes there is a relay.
    Clean it and also a good idea is to clean all pots and switches.

    If a relay doesn't click then it tell's you that the protection circuit is messuring a to high or to low dc-offset beyond approx 700mV + or -

    black box is a relay. Should have 6 connections on bottom. 2 for coil, 2 for R&L in(amp side) and 2 for R&L out. Check DC offeset from the bottom of the board at the relay terminals on the amp side.

    If DC looks good check for sound by connecting a junker speaker -ve to ground and +ve to amp side relay terminal.

Marantz problems


The speakers are 8ohms. Always try using speakers 6 or 4ohms. For B&W 683 on PM 6004 is too low. You should go for PM 7000 or 8000 series to catchup with 683. Also when you increase the volume please decrease the bass as well.
You need 8ohm 55w to 90w or 4ohm 80w to 110w speakers.

Are the speakers connected?

If so , you have an output DC voltage issue ( typically outputs dont want to see more than 100mV DC going to the speakers. If that happens , the Protect circuit will kick in. Find a repair tech in your area because I think this amp is worth fixing

The OVERLOAD on my Marantz PM 44-SE is tripping out even at very low volume setting - using any of the inputs with either speakers connected or disconnected. I can even hear it tripping when no inputs or...


Overload is another form of protect mode. See the link below for an explanation of protect. Also, in your specific case, the problem is definately internal to the amp rather than an external cause. Expect a parts cost in the $40 range. Feel free to post additional questions.
Thanks,
Dan

Hi Strange problem with Marantz pm7001 When ever I turn the volume upto around 1/3 and 1/2 of the way, the amp cuts out and reset it self down to minimum volume. It seems like the amp ins't enough power...


What's probably happening is that the amplifier is shutting down or cutting back the volume as protection from damage. You may have a partial short in the speaker wiring that is not a problem at lower levels, but at higher ones causes the amp to see too low a load. There may a problem with a speaker or crossover component that is breaking down at higher volumes. Or something in the amp's output stage is unable to handle the load.

Test the system with a known good speaker system and length of wire and see if the trouble continues. If it does, you'll know it's the amplifier that needs to be checked. If the test speakers can reach normal volume, you can start checking the wiring and other speakers for the source of the trouble.

Poor sound from 1 channel on a PM 66 SE Special Edition. Changed speaker and wire, no change. The sound is muffled and lower in volume. Same happens when tuner is on, so must be amplifier. Hope you can...


Hi...
My 1st thought would be a broken contact or 2 inside on the main volume control... Is the balance set to middle?
Is it the same with headphones?

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-7200 left channel weak compared to the right


hmmm. Let's start by swapping the wires you are using for your speakers. Double check the wire connections first, then take the left and place iton the right and vice versa.
