Pre out on AVR intermittently cuts out.
« on: October 25, 2020, 03:31:34 PM »
As per title. Right front pre out intermittently cuts out. When I fiddle with the RCA it comes back. When I put a small bit of contact cleaner in the socket it plays well for about 3 days then starts cutting out randomly.

Looking for solutions. Any advice would be appreciated.

Sounds like a bad connection take it in for repair

have you tried a rca with better fit or is it on the unit side?

The problem socket is on the AVR. I tried a few different RCa cable. Same problem.

I have seen PCB-mount RCA sockets come loose

Also, the inside of the positive sleeve gets oval and does not contact the plug well

The former a solder job, the latter more difficult

Could be a crack of the inside pin to the PCB too - the screws do not secure the socket module 100% against flexing a bit. If contact cleaners etc. don't work, open it up or have it looked at.

maybe try solder on the board?
