Hi All,

Thank you for reading.

Bought a BR-800 not working. Well it works, all functions work, screen fine but as soon as it gets switched on I get a loud static noise from both headphones and line out. Input meters are clipping, changing inputs makes no difference, no instruments are connected to the inputs, built in mics are disconnected as part of the troubleshooting process.

Any ideas? I unsoldered one of the two codec chips (AK4552VT) and noise was still present from line out (the one I took off drove the headphones). I am trying to trace it with an oscilloscope but not getting too far with that.

Any ideas, has someone had similar experience?

Does anyone have a service manual they can put a link up for sharing?

Thank you in advance.
