Very low sound from all channels

The problem i am having is that although everything on the unit works perfect there is very little sound coming from the speakers to the point where you have to put your ear right next to the speaker to hear sound coming through it. everything else on the unit works fine and it does not blow fuses. This unit was costly in its day and i would like to get it fixed or know maybe some ideas as to the problem? Thank you michael

Have you tried changing the settings via the LEVEL button on the remote for EACH INDIVIDUAL SPEAKER?  Hope this helps!

One other solution is that the reciever has a "pre-out" and "main in" connection on the back meant for an external EQ to be hooked up, without the EQ you need to put jumpers from the outs to the ins

Without a model # it's hard to say what you have or what the problem might be, but since you said "in the day" I'll assume it's old enough to have a tape monitor function... Make sure Tape Monitor 2 is not on. Also make sure you are on the correct A/B setting.

    If you rated my answer unhelpful because you tried the suggestions to no avail, then it leaves only one possible alternative. The amp output transistors are shot and will need to be repaired by a knowledgable shop.

When the unit detects a problem, it shuts itself off to prevent any further damage. Your outputs (the IC's that give you sound) are most likely bad. You would need to know how to solder, etc. to replace them. Your best bet is to take to a repair shop if you can find one...

This is not how you explain your problems to others. It should be precise. In this case, you could have said that you connected the cable between the RF out put of set-top box and RF input TV. Or Audio/video output of set-top box to Audio/video input of the TV. Also you did not mention, to which port you had connected the Vedeo recorder and DVD which are working good. Now, it may the volume level of the set-top box at low level which you can try to increase by using the remote control

If you could not sort out the problem explain how you had 'dismantled everything'

Vestax o5 pro mixer channel 2 not working

Doe you get sound in from the headphones? If so, then the issue might be the volume fader for that specific channel.

If not, then the issue might be the input connections or input pc board the connections are soldered on to.

The fader can be self replaced, although complete disassembly of your unit is required. Not a hard task, but there are alot of jumper cables, and you have to be careful when putting her back together.

If it's the latter, then I would suggest taking it to a service center for repair.

Subwoofer Output Not Working...

first check that the subwoofer function on the actual head unit is turned up,second check that the gain on the amp is at bout half way then check that it is on a lp (low pass setting)
then check that the boost on the amp is turned up.
please leave feedback.

Old Turntable Philips

You may have a bad stylus (needle), it can cause just that type of problem. Find a service center near you and see if they can get a replacement for you. They are very easy to replace, but very difficult to find.

Hope this helps.


No sound in rear speakers

I figured this one out, although I might still send it back for an exchange. It turned out that the right rear speaker works just fine, however the jack seems to be flawed. When fully plugged in, the rear speaker input only picks up the left channel. If you pull it out just a little, say 1/8-1/4 the way out it will pick up both channels. Not a good solution but it works for the time being.

No Sound Through Speakers

Hi Jake,

If you haven't done so already, I'd try double checking the speaker wiring, you may have some exposed or badly kinked wires behind the unit.
