I have an Emerson AV101C system that is responding to the different commands as shown on the display panel, except that the CD/DVD drawer won't open and no sound is coming out from the speakers even in AM/FM receiving mode. Is that a common problem, I'm suspecting a short circuit somewhere but where should I start from? I'm a retired technician but all I have on hand is a multimeter since I was using my employer's equipment when I was working.

Re: Display but no sound
Some stereo units have a function on them for an equalizer. What it does is when its in a certin mode you can turn on tape2 and it will send the signal threw the tape2 and if an eq is hooked to it you can alter the sound.
Now here is the problem, if there is nothing hooked to the tape2 (not sure what yours maybe called if nothing is connected you dont hear anything because there is nothing to complete the circuit.
Im not sure if your unit is like this but it could have somthing similar and its in that mode.

The display microprocessor(computer within your unit) may be bad. This IC is responsible for processing any and all IR(infra red) commands from the remote, as well as scanning all the push buttons on the front of the unit.

Hi,here is my solution... If
you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV ** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection... There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver.. ---------------------------- If you want to display your DVD on the TV,than do everything visa versa..as; **connect "Video Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your Receiver ** to "Video input " or "Optic Cable input" of your TV and make a selection corresponding input of TV Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up to continue for Helping out the Community :)

Deactivating the Buttons
on the Unit good luck
My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.
