I have an old Philips Audio/Video Receiver
I was listening to my system and it just shutoff on me and when i went to turn it back on it wouldn't. everything else hooked up to the same...
You may has a blown fuse inside the receiver. Unplug it from the wall, open it up and look around the area the A/C plug goes into the board. There should be a glass fuse. Sometimes you can tell by looking closely at the fuse if it is blown. They have a very slim filament that goes from one end to the other. If it is broken or not connected or if it looks like it is burned anywhere in the glass area, it is blown. Look at the metal ens caps for a amperage rating and get another fuse of the same value at radio shack or anyplace that sells fuses. make sure the power cord is not plugged in when you do any of this or you will get shocked.
When you first go to turn on the unit, do it with the speakers disconnected. That way, if a speaker is the cause of the fuse blowing, you will at least see that the unit turns on.
If it does turn on, turn it back off and connect the speakers and try again. If it blows a fuse, you most likely have a shorted speaker causing the amp to draw to much current and blowing the fuse.
If you replace the fuse, and it blows again after turing the unit back on with speakers connected, you have much deeper problems that will require electronic troubleshooting to determain the exact cause. But it is normally the amplifier having a shorted channel. Sometimes a random part failure can cause this for no apparent reason.
You will then need to have it serviced at a service center.
I hope this was helpful, let me know if you need more help.
