Circa 1980 nakamichi tuner amplifier TA-3A

Out of the blue, when I turned it on this morning I got no sound. Normally the power light blinks for a few seconds and then - sound. Now the power light continues blinking and there is no output. It's a beautiful piece of equipment and I hope I can avoid replacing it.
Thank you,

Hi jac48k

Anything branded Nakamichi is worth repairing in my opinion. The problem may be something quite simple, or worst case a blown output stage. First check that there are no problems with the speaker wiring or speakers. This can be done quickly by disconnecting the speaker wires and see if the unit fires up correctly. If it still shows the protection mode by blinking power light, then it will need some repair work done. If you are not versed in electronic repairs, fault-finding or soldering, then i suggest looking fpor a repair guy. Contact your local HiFi specialist retailer, They always know who you can trust to look at it for you, if not take it on themselves. Good Luck.

Going on standbymode and power green light blinking TA4 nakamachi


I'm not familiar with this product, and there the best I offer is that you consult the user guide (which you probably already have)
http://www.ps2netdrivers.net/manual/nakamichi.ta-4/#manual
or (buy) a service manual (which it seems includes a troubleshooting guide) from any of a number places, two are given below:
http://www.manualszone.com/en/nakamichi-service-manuals/62888-NAKAMICHI-TA4-service-manual.html
and
http://www.nakamichi.owner-manuals.com/TA4-service-manual-NAKAMICHI.html
All three manuals/guides are available from
http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/nakamichi/ta-4.shtml
There other websites where you an download the service manual (I don't know if the are the 'official' service manual, or different ones that have been written by different people).
If you are really stuck contact Nakamichi through www.nakamichi.com or (what appears to be a more friendly site) http://www.nakamichi.co.uk/support

Kenwood kdc-mp628 has no sound when playing cd.


Are you using an amplifier? If you are, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode, thus turning off the amplifier.

My Apline CDA-9831 has no sound when trying to play regular store bought CD's. It dose have sound on Tuner.


Are you using an amplifier? If so, make sure you are using the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) instead of the blue (power antenna remote turn on) to turn your amplifier on. The blue wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

It reads the cds but there is no sound


are you running audio through an amplifier? if so, you may be using the wrong blue wire to turn the amp on. usually the amp remote wire is blue/white. solid blue is usually antenna remote, which turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Sony output problem


All i did was mess with the REM wire, and found out i had to hook the REM wire to the blue/white wire on the deck. Instead of the blue/white wire, i had it hooked up to the solid blue wire on the deck which was preventing my amp from playing on CD.

Sony TA-N9000ES Flash light when turn on.


an amp of this size generates alot of heat internally when in use as these use mosfet ICs and can get very hot.
your problem is most definately dry solder joints and possibly quite a few at that.
i've repaired quite a few sony surround receivers with similar problems and have all been down to dry solder joints.

hope this helps.

TA-N9000ES Amp - Standby light constantly blinks - no sound


The flashing light is indicating that a fault has been detected, and it is staying in "protect mode". First disconnect all cables from the processor (except the power cord) and then power up the processor. This will eliminate the possibility of a shorted cable or a problem with any connected components. f the light still flashes, there is an internal problem and the processor will require profesional service.
