Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Rotel 600A Receiver has worked beautifully, albeit probably ony a couple of times max per week, for 30 years. Suddenly 'Bang' and the AC fuse has blown ! Replaced fuse (you never know !) and it simply faled immediately. Any ideas anybody. No, it certainly doesn't owe me anything, but it fitted in very nicely where it was !

I wuold estimate that the rectifier section of the power supply has failed. I don't recall whether that unit uses a bridge rectifier or separate rectifier diodes. In any case, you are looking at $15 worth of parts or so. Add in your local labor rate for the total repair cost. This should be a simple repair for any shop that repairs audio gear.

Suddenly, for the first time in all the years I've had this Sony receiver, a messege pops up on the front of the receiver saying "protector". What is this??? I have NO idea and don't know what to do. ...


Internal problem probably needs output transistors and a dual emmiter resistor (could a couple other parts too). Parts and labor should be about $100 to $125.

Probably a fuse inside the unit. Can be caused by overheating or by door switches not working properly.

Loud bang, sounds like the motors going to drop out when the compresser kicks on,17 years old, relpace/repair


The actual internal motor in the compressor dome is mounted on springs. Over time these get weak and hence the loud bang noise when the motor hits the sidewall of the compressor housing. It is not too serious and will probably work for ages. Just anoying. Leave it until it really packs up.
