20 Most Recent Marantz SR8001 Questions & Answers


Resolve the issue.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Usually the headphone jack is like a mechanical switch and it's probably just not making a good connection inside. Use the correct size headphone jack and insert it then remove it maybe a couple of times and see if that fixes it.

It needs to be serviced. Bad caps, resistors, & possibly a transistor or two. Not an unbearable repair, but you can count on it being 100-175 depending on the shop. You followed all the troubleshooting you could without opening the unit.

You can select the display mode for the front display
of the SR7001.To select this mode, press the DISPLAY on the remote control or the front panel.When this button is pressed, the display mode is switched in the following sequence.Input Mode ? Surround Mode ? Auto display OFF ? Display OFF ? Normal Mode ? Input Mode Normal Mode: Displays the selected input function. If the function has been renamed using the Function Rename feature (see page 26), the renamed name appears on the display. Input Mode: Displays the input mode set via the Function Input Setup feature (see page 25). Surround Mode: Displays the status of the selected surround mode. Auto Display Off mode: The display is off. But, if you make a change to the unit such as the input or surround mode, the display will show that change, then go back to off after about 3 seconds. When changing the volume, it is not displayed. Display Off mode: The display is off completely. Note: • Only the DISP indicator will be illuminated on thefront display in display off condition

Hello
If you have plugged in to 230AC with voltage settings was 110VAC, the transformer has been damaged already [opend winding]. If the voltage settings was 230VAC itself, there will be no harm to its internal transformer. Anyway, open it, anc check the fuses. In some cases, fule only will blow out, preventing from furhter damages. I'm not sure about it, but check it. If the fuse only has blown out, and there has no harm; you are lucky I should say. OK.

Hello there Ed.

For anyone that has ever had such an issue with a MARANTZ SR series (6001. 7001. 7002. 8001...etc...) issue a question and I do HAVE the answer.

I could be just anything, or just the low quality binding posts used by MARANTZ for that.

Please describe to me in details how you've connected your speaker wires at the back, and give me description when and how did this problem came up.

Kind regards
Evangelos

Hello there.

These are blind posts (i.e the unscrew back) but will not allow you to unscrew them fully to use spades.
Only bananas (of any type) and bare wire (do not recommend it).

I own the same SR and faced many issues (even going into "protection mode") due to bad quality binding posts used on this machine.

For any clarifications (specific type of terminals) let me know.

blinking power lights are a factory setting to inform the customer there is an internal electronic fault. and the unit needs to be repaired by a service pro in 99% of cases the owner can do nothing to fix it.

send it in

best luck

Test all your speaker impedances and check for shorts on both wiring and speakers. Use a digital multimeter. If you still have an issue, disconnect all speakers and test receiver. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help some more.
