Is it worth repairing my Marantz AV7701?

Recommended Posts

Dear fellow members,

 

My Marantz AV7701 started to have a mind of its own and now is continuously restarting on/off.

There is a YouTube clip of another with the same issue so it seems to be a common problem. Comments below on YouTube from another poster suggested it is the PSU.

Here is the clip (it's not me btw :-) ): 

 

 

 

The question I would like to ask, it is worth spending to repair or just save and spend on top for a new unit? I mean at least I would assume the repair may be around the $400 mark .. 

Even if the repair is good, usually warranties from the repair mob is not very long. 

 

As we all know that a replacement Prepro will not be cheap. 

 

4K passthrough is not that important (although it does supports it however 4K@30p) 

 

I am in Melbourne and I believe JLS electronics is pretty good.

Has anyone been in this dilemma?

 

What would you advise.

 

Thanks for your time.

 

Cheers

I've seen this happen on a Samsung panel that's trying to switch on and reinitialised. Not sure if this applies to you or what you have tried but do the easiest thing 1st that doesn't cost you anything.  The above fix was to replaced or refit the IEC mains connection at the back.  

 

Edited:  also try disconnecting items you have connected to the it one at a time, it maybe that something else you have connected is triggering this issue.

Thanks very much.

 

Actually I had it connected to an LG UH770T with no issues and the swapped it over to an LG OLED B7T and this fault started to occur.

I definitely will try this.

 

Thank you once again.

 

Cheers

I tried as per your recommendations however unfortunately, it still does it.

Even with nothing connected to it. Turn the power on and it cycles off/on loop.

You think is it worth repairing?

Thanks.

Tried that and now it's worse lol!
Now it's going off/on --> tick tock tick tock lol.

I might look for an upgrade. I have read that the AV7701 is problematic. No comparison to the Japanese AV8801 flagship.. but then that's twice the price.

Thanks once again.

Cheers

I know this post is relatively old but if it helps anyone ,I recently had issues with my Marantz receiver.I tried the reset procedure as per the user guide but to no avail.

i then took the unit to a authorised Marantz repair place and they did a reset again .

I was puzzled as to why it worked for them but not for me ,even after several attempts.

They explained that as well as pushing the two normally required buttons for the reset they also simultaneously press the enter button.My user guide does not indicate this at all.Anyway it worked and Marantz is back to its usual self.

      I have the original box and Auddessy mic, remote is working, but isn't perfect, however I have always controlled the unit via Marantz App.
       
      Will serve someone looking for a great experience with surround / 2 channel sound not looking to move into the new object audio.
       
      Note supports both XLR and RCA connectivity which can be mixed based on your configuration. Also offers 2 channels for subwoofer connections and eq.
       
      I do have the original box, my preference is pickup, but will ship if new owner is willing to pay arrange / pay courier and take risk of shipping damage
       
      While I have requested $800 I would also be open to a straight swap for a panasonic DP-UB9000 4K player

      I picked this off another member not long ago (absolute gentlemen!) but after getting my Rotel RX-802 recapped it is 75% of what I need for the 5% of time I can listen to anything. I can verify that the reviews are accurate, this is a lush full sounding amp. The unit has a very premium look and feel. The controls are weighted and switching has a solid reassuring click that is oddly pleasurable. Copper chassis and just about the nicest speaker terminals I have ever seen are icing on the cake. Just asking for what I paid which I think was a bargain. Has manual and remote. Pick up is preferable.
