Technics SA-GX490 reciever

I've had this receiver for I don't know how long and have had no problems. I probably haven't used it in about a week. Today when I tried to turn it on, the only thing that comes on is the "Help/Reset" button light. I've tried pushign the button and holding it down but there is no change. IT's getting power because the CD player that's plugged into the aux power in the back of the receiver works fine. Any suggestions?

Disconnect receiver from power and open the unit. Localize fuse that is placed on small PCB between main transformer "big one" and rear panel.Fuse's amperage is 1.6 A .I'm quite confident that fuse is gone.If so, replace it with the one of same amperage and try unit.
My unit has done exactly the same to me with no reason.

Hi a have too same problems vhen i start reciever, reciever dont " click" and sound isn´t out.Than 15min to 2 hour later reciever "click" and all is o.k. I moved reciever to my friend. He is very good...

There is an internal "timer" circuit that controls the delay of the output relay. The capacitor in this circuit may be defective. Since it is part of an RC circuit, poor solder connections can effect this as well. Look closely at the board for any solder connections that appear grainy or have rings and resolder them. That may resolve the problem. If not, please update this with your findings and I will look up the service manual for this and list the probable defective components in the delay circuit.

You just connect it in the auxilliary input then switch your reciever to auxilliary so you can the sound of your ipod. First buy a wire connector from ipod to reciever.

Hope it may helps;

F70 on my reciever

Most likley it is in need of repair. I suspect the output IC. Check for bad solder connections on the IC and voltage regulators.
Remove the speakers and see if it still happens (it probably will).

yes it can be fixed , the input may have shorted and is now protecting the other circuits. it will need to be looked at and tested to make the repair. so calling and probably having to take it to, an electronic repair shop will need to be done.
