Hey Folks,

I'm getting intermittent static from my DSP5200HC. It's very hard to isolate. It doesn't have anything to do with the connections to the G61R or the comms cables. I can unplug both and the static continues.

It also doesn't stop when the system is in standby, but stops right away when I power down with the power switch on the back.

Does anybody have advice on repair in LA or other things I can try?

TIA

As I mentioned to another member recently on the forum, I have recently had a dsp5200 repaired with this precise problem. Static sound which comes on over time and even when the speaker is placed in standby but disappears temporarily when it is turned off at the mains and back on again.

If it is the same issue as mine which sounds highly likely, the problem will get progressively worse over time and will need a new amplifier board to resolve the problem.

Thanks! Any ideas how much an amp board costs in the US?

I don't but if it helps it cost me about £750 sterling for a new amp board so I would guess about $1,000-$1,200?

FYI, there are right now a couple of DSP5200 SL back panels pairs for sale on eBay USA. Left over from SE updates. One of them misspelled Meridian as Merdian, just so you can find it. It'll much cheaper than that.

I have nothing to do with those sellers. I just purchased the back panel of a DSP5200HC from one of them, to upgrade my legacy speaker to SL.

It seems to be related to my refrigerator in the next room. I'm thinking a less expensive solution might be a power conditioner. At the moment it doesn't seem bad, so I'll keep an eye out for a really inexpensive replacement.
Thanks All!

Merdian Would not be a good name for a company in France!

I have to say that this is sounding like a very common problem with the DSP5200HC. It's really feeling like I'm being bitten by the Meridian tax @ ~ $1200 for a replacement board, when it seems that there's an obvious faulty part on them.

You may be at least partially correct. I had a 5200HC go up in smoke after being shipped. I was told that sometimes shipping jolts can cause some devices on the circuit boards to bend and fail. It would be worth a look inside.

As predicted this has gone from bad to worse. Picking up a replacement board from another Hitchhiker. Fingers crossed that this one doesn't act up after being shipped.

Static is gone at half the price of Meridian board swap thanks to George Meyer AV repair in Culver, City, CA. They ‘re-capped’ it and it sounds great.

I guess this post was a bit premature. The evil static returned after a few weeks. It’s been back at George Meyer now for 6 weeks with no resolution. At this point, if anybody had a legacy DSP5200HC board to sell I would be very interested. @jeje?
