Even if it were a fuse, a blown fuse is merely a symptom not the solution. From the symptoms you've described the AMPs are the most likely problem. They are mounted to a large aluminum heat sink usually about center of the main board. There are several and they are a task to remove and replace because the entire board has to be removed... However, it's not too costly a repair and for a qualified shop something that can be done in a couple of hours - including testing. If you like the receiver get it fixed. Compared to most digital receivers today it's probably cheaper to fix this one than buy another. And a good repair shop will add years more life to that unit... Hope this helps. Bill

SOURCE: No sound

The only fuse on you stero is for power it's a 6.3 amp 125 volt it'on the main board. I have the sam problem I found a resistor on the board that controls the power amps on the heat sink. A lab here charges 35 dollar bench charge and if you want them to fix it they will apply it to the job. I own the same model and i went to circuit city they had lot of different system on sell. So before i put that in to an old system i'll buy another one

SOURCE: Teac AG-D8900 Receiver - No power

Hello meml,

Since you mention that there is no standby light at all, the problem could be related to the receiver's main power supply, which is not uncommon for a unit of this age.
Now, if you decide to take the unit to a repair shop, do not let the cost of repairing the unit be the only factor that determines if you bring it back to life or to use it as a door stop.
Consider the replacement cost compared to the repair cost, also, have in mind that newer receivers can supply more output power per channel and have more advanced decoding technologies among other features. Hope this helps your decision. Let me know.

SOURCE: power short/ bad fuse?

I had the very same problem. The dreaded blinking power light. I also dabble in electronics. I found that all that was wrong with mine was one bad cap. There are two 1000uF(microfarrid) 16V(volt) capacitors in the mid section of the power board, right next to each other. One was bulging on the top. They have an "X" on top. I replaced it with a 1000uF 35V capacitor from Radioshack. They did not have a 16 volt. (Never go down to a lower voltage) The capacitor I got was larger than the old one but I gently moved over the parts around it and got in there. After replacing this one capacitor, which I got for $1.72 tax and all, I plugged it up and no more problems! It works great! I hope this helps someone else.

SOURCE: Worked fine for a year, now not recognized or functioning

I had the same issue- light was blinking from red to blue, could not get my computers (I have a Mac and a PC) to recognize the drive, sounded like the drive wasn't powering up...

I replaced the Acom drive enclosure with a new one (CP Technologies). I don't know if the drive enclosure or power supply was at fault-- but it wasn't the internal drive. Plugged it in and amazingly all my data was back. For thirty bucks it was far less than sending out the drive to a 'data recovery' expert!

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Weed wacker worked fine a week ago. tried to start it up today and nothing happens. I followed step by step instructions and still got nothing. Only had it a year and only used it three times.


I have a two month old red max weedwacker that just decided to start shutting off when i give it gas. I hold idle no problem. Aircleaner=good, spark=checked, primer=good, dumped fuel and got same problem, I am upset because when redmax hit the scene with the backpacks they were solid. I just replaced a magneto on a year old red max blower and I am waiting on a crankshaft for a redmax set of gas shears: I hit a fence and in the past with other companies shears that was not a major problem. The redmax shears crankshaft broke and sheared two bolts of hardened steel on an irregular, recessed angle in the aluminum housing. After shelling out 450 bucks i am not the happy camper. I went old school and bought electric little wonders--know what: I forgot what a pleasure they were: light and no fumes. Any helpon the whip would be greatly appreciated.

TV REMOTE CONTROL NOT WORKING


1. Turn your TV on.

2. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press tv on your Sky remote control again.

5. Key in the four digit code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. If the light blinks once only, recheck the code for your brand of TV and start again at Step 1.

6. Press the standby button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press select. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice (code stored). If your TV does not switch off, press tv, then press the standby button. Repeat this (press tv, then standby) until your TV turns off, then press select (stores code).

If at this point the LED on the Sky remote control blinks three times then all possible codes for that make of receiver have been checked. Repeat from step one, ensuring that you enter the correct manufacturer code.

At the end of the sequence, if you see the TV Guide screen, the remote control setup process is complete. If you did not see the TV Guide screen, you must now complete the following steps.

8. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

9. Hold down select and the green button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

10. Key in the number of the channel on your TV that you use for watching satellite TV.

11. Press select on your Sky remote control. The red light blinks twice. The remote control setup process is complete.
