Finding a replacement control will probably be expensive (over $20 including shipping) so here's a cheap + dirty fix. Most people never use the balance control so losing it won't usually matter.

The control is probably labeled something like 10kohms. Take a digital multimeter and measure the value from each of the outside terminals to the center one then replace the control with two resistors with the values you just measured.

If you still want to replace it, ask over at and somebody should be able to suggest a parts source.

No output sound on one side (L) from Integrated Amplifier

Actually I think you are looking for an STK4204 MK5. I would search google for where to get one, depending where you live.

Hi I have a Sansui Amplifier model AU-519 and the volume of this goes of quite often...only resumes when the volume knob is rotated anticlockwise and clockwise several there a fix / solution to...

Sounds like it could be one of two things, either a bad soldering joint, weakend with time! Or dirt in the track of the control. This can be cleaned with Servisol Switch Cleaner (such as Video 40).

Sansui AU-X410R Amp, at power on, lights on but no sound (surge protection click doesn't occur). Sometimes powers off for no apparent reason.

One thing you could look at is that thing that makes the click, it could be a relay and they do go wacky sometimes (hence why it shuts down). If you are lucky it will tell you (on the relay) everything you need to replace it.

JVC AX-66 Integrated Amplifier seems to be muted?

You need to have a jumper between the 4 standalone jacks on the right side of the column of stereo connectors. A stereo RCA cable would work for this.

It is possible, but nlikely that the protection circuit is bad. More common are shorted output transistors or defective driver stage transistors. This should not be a difficult repair for anyone familiar with audio amps. Unsolder/remove Q22 and Q23 and measure the voltages at each of the 3 pads per transistor and post them here.
