Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Tried new speakers. Nothing. Electric burning smell coming from receiver.
When I turn on receiver, all I get is a loud humming sound from bothe speakers. No reception from radio, turntable, tape deck or CD player.
The audio amplifier in the unit has failed, and that's what you smell. Turn it off and quit using it immediately - it presents a fire hazard. It might be possible to replace the bad parts. Depending on what it cost, you might want to take it somewhere for a repair estimate, but be prepared to learn it might not be fixable. Often the burned parts damage the circuit board as well.
Usually this happens in small stereo systems because of running them at high volumes for a long time. If you want to listen to loud music, you would be better off putting the money into a higher-power system.
