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.

Testimonial: "thx a great deal. i'll try to check if it's just the fuse. there was no smoke or burning smell. does that mean that it was likely just the fuse? "

Fm aerial connection ?


Both of my Marantz receivers use a 75 ohm coax input. The receivers included a single wire antenna that simply plugs in. The plug is suitable for coax cable going to an external antenna. You can also get a small 75 to 300 ohm transformer that will allow you to use a dipole or other common indoor FM antenna.

What would cause the unit to simply not turn on? Is there a fuse somewhere?


Depending on local electrical regulations, the mains plug might carry a fuse.

Any other fuses for the receiver are inside. Beware though; just replacing a fuse without knowing why it blew is a risky strategy. They blow for a reason. Check out all the speaker wiring first.

What could be the cause of the receiver act like it's not plugged in? No lights or anything.


Is the outlet live? Does something else plugged into the same outlet work?

Does the receiver have a master power switch on the back that may have been switched off by accident.

Some - not all receivers have user replaceable fuses. If you do not see a fuse holder on the receiver near where the power cord attaches then you may need to open the chassis to see if there are replaceable fuses on the power supply board inside. Follow where the power cord connects to the chassis. It will lead to a board with a transformer that changes high voltage to the low voltage that the receiver needs to operate.

IF there are user replaceable fuses inside they will be on the power supply board.

PLEASE make sure that the unit is unplugged and has been for some time as the transformers sometimes stores residual voltage that will harm you. Don't do this unless you know what you are doing inside the unit. I recommend novices just take it to the repair center.

Also - IF you replace with the wrong fuse type and rating you can cause further damage to your unit.

Good luck and be careful.

I plugged my surround sound into a 220 outlet


Without a circuit diagram and test equipment it would be impossible to identify the fault and repair.

I have a marantz 2325 receiver. When I turn up moderate volume it starts making a whistle sound. When I take loudness switch off I can turn it up a little more then it makes whistle sound..Any suggestions?...

The symptom you describe could be a failing filter capacitor. It appears to be a common problem with this unit. The above link is a source of replacement parts, and or assistance in getting it repaired. Increasing the volume increases the voltage in the amplifier output circuits, which increases the stress on the filter capacitors. If one is breaking down it could cause a harmonic oscillation that would be a whistle. Hope that helps.

I have a Marantz SR5500 and the unit will not stay powered on.


I have this problem. it is caused by an o/c mains transformer primary winding. the clicking and flashing light is the stanbyy circuit trying to switch the power on to the main (large) transformer when it gets no voltage out it switches back off

Buzz in amplifier power transformer. The amp is a Marantz Model 240. It functions perfectly well, and there's no noise from it in the speakers, but the transformer buzzes whenever the unit is plugged in...


All transformers buzz though you cannot hear it normally. The big transformers on power lines like to buzz for all to hear. When a transformer in a stereo amp gets old and deteriorates or gets hot and  expands the coils, melts the coil varnish and epoxy coatings then rattles at 60 times per second.    You can ignore it or change the transformer. There are too many layers of windings to try to stick anything in there.  Disconnecting a transformer results in inductive kickback -that's not money. It's a big, whopping electrical gotcha! Be careful! Good luck, Steve Medley
