Question about Audio Players & Recorders
About a month ago i was driving back home thru the back roads and it was the time of the trash collection so this guy thru a vector receiver out to the curb. i saw the unit and stopped to my surprise the out side was in excellent condition. i ask the owner and told me that for some reason the unit would cut off after it would reach a certain temp. i took it home and stored it. about few days ago i pulled it out and try it, it starts up and try to see if it does what the owner said but so far it has not may be were he had it was to much heat and the unit could not handle it sort of a fail sameor some bs. any way im not familiar with the unit and can not find a Manual over the internet i was wondering if any one knew how old is This unit and if any one had a manual and service manual for this type of unit.
Several sites I found all put the thing around mid to late 1980's manufacture, but I couldn't find a manual either.
As to the original problem: If the previous owner was having shutdown issues and you aren't, the trouble might not be in the receiver at all. Most receivers have protection circuits to shut them down before they are damaged by speaker problems. (I say most because I have seen some cheap ones that didn't bother, and when things went wrong they really smoked!) He might have had bad speakers or wiring, so that at higher power levels the receiver would shut off. If you're not having any problems, you might just have gotten very lucky in your find. Just keep using it.
