Question about Aiwa AV-D77 Receiver

Sudden failure to power up

A few days ago my receiver failed to switch on when I hit the "power" button on either the unit face or the remote (the only response I could get was the faint clicking sound the reciever has always made when being switched on). However, after some frustrated repitition, I was able to switch the unit on and for a few days everything was fine. Then again last night the same issue occured. Nothing in the troubleshooting guide comes to close to describing my issue. I know there is power going to the unit, as the red light on the front remains lit as though it were still in Standby. The unit is wired into the same surge protector I've had it on for over a year and every other device plugged into it (TV, Xbox, DVD) works fine.

    I'm having the same problem. I unplugged it once and worked for a few days. After that, it only makes a clicking noise when you press the power button. I tried holding the enter and power. That did nothing.

    I went thru the procedure like on page 7 of the instruction manual to turn off the eco mode. All it does is click, and do nothing. There is power to the receiver because the small red light to indicate eco mode is lit in the front.

    My Rx will not turn on It has had hard use as my handicapped wife puts many hours on it. It was intermittent for a long time but finally quit. I hear the relay click and check the ac voltage going through it. It is momentary (the top board on the Power supply) Is this supposed to latch? I also hear another relay clicking but not sure which one. Does anyone have a schematic? Thanks for any help you might be able to give.

    same issue. Tried to clear the memory using the power-enter buttons... didn't work. Hate to generate another piece of trash if it is a simple change of a transistor or a latching relay... Please help.

I've had this happen a number of times with my receiver. This trick from the Troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual usually does the trick: To reset If an unusual condition in the display window or malfunction occurs, reset the unit as follows. 1 Press the POWER button to turn off the power. 2 Press the POWER button while pressing the ENTER button. Everything stored in memory after purchase is canceled. If the power cannot be turned off in step 1 because of a malfunction, reset by disconnecting the AC cord and carry out step 2.

[1] Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the DCT*

[2] If the DCT* is connected to a switched outlet on another

of the remote control. The batteries in the remote control
may be depleted

[4] The DCT* may have received a software update and

may not power on while the new software is being

There is NO configuration that would have NO front speakers.

I have Crown Tobago boiler that cut off two days ago

Possibly due to a power failure, control unit needs to be reset. Hit reset button. Hold for 30 seconds. Also no fire typically due to nozzle clogged, no fuel which means control will shut down. Water in fuel will also shut boiler down. Clogged filter will decrease fuel flow. Electric eye face is dirty which will also shut it down. If you have a two line system, open up bleeder and see if you get a good flow. Check electrodes for burned ends or out of gap specs.

Trouble turning on the tv at times

The next time I try to turn the unit on the remote will not work or I can not turn the unit on with the switch on the side.
This statement leads me to believe the IR receiver and associated set-top button circuit may be at fault.
If you haven't hammered the set to pieces yet, try this; next time it fails to respond to the remote, put the remote in your freezer for 2-5 minutes (not longer, the batteries won't appreciate it) and then try it again.
If it then functions normally, then a certain integrated circuit (PT2222 or PT2221) may be from the same lot as mine and is abnormally sensitive to warmth. If this does make a difference, try removing the battery compartment cover and intentionally leave the remote face down.
If these tests don't seem to make any difference to the remote, then it is likely that the receiver end in the set is faulty.

Failure to Warm Up

Failure to warm would suggest the fuser unit is failing and the machine is failing to reach the temperature that toner melts and fuses to the paper. The machine should display error 76 or 77.

Try this ONCE only!! till the after 99 bit. Hit menu, *,2,8,6,4 quickly if all the button flash and maintenance is displayed enter 99. Now if the error reoccurs you need to replace your fuser unit as it failed as opposed to just malfunctioned.

It will melt if there is a problem and you keep repeating this process. So please only once. If it takes you a few goes to get into maintenance modes its ok but the reset of 99 do only once.

Remote does not work

Do the buttons on the front panel of the unit work?

If so, try doing this:

Hit the tivo button, go down to messages and setup and into to system information. Go down a few screens until you see remote code. Hold (on your remote) the tivo button and pause button for about 5 seconds. Then hit 0-9 on your remote to set the code. It's a single digit code only. You'll see your remote light flash. Now, try hitting the back button and see if your remote works. If it does, great. If it doesn't that means one or more of the following:

1) Your remote is defective
2) Your IR receiver on the unit isn't working correctly.

If #2 is the problem, you'll need to open up the unit, powered down! and make sure the thin, greyish ribbon cable in the front of the motherboard is 100% in. If it's not all the way in, it will cause issues.
