Hi
Most  transformers have a thermal fuse fitted, this can be bypassed/replaced  to get the amp working again. Are you up to having a go at fixing it?

Sl-eh790 compactdusc changer


Have you opened the case?

Inside the actual cd drive unit there should be a couple of small rubberband like belts. You can try replacing them.

It may help.

If that doesn't work ,it may be time for a replacement.

I have a tendancy to hang on to old audio equipment long after it should have been replaced. It's just hard to let them go!

Good luck with it!

The main fuse has blown, or the power transformer has a open primary, one or too audio outputs semiconductors have shorted. To narrow it down the top needs to be removed and unplugged, set digital meter to ohms and check fuses, next! the too wires going into the transformer should have a low reading, but if it reads infinity or open the primary side of the transformer is open.

Hi guys

Quick check... If the amp still stays in safety mode with the vol turned down and the speakers disconnected, it will have failed in some way. Since you have the safety operation light ON, you can expect that the power transformer is OK. I would expect that you have a DC offset condition on one channel. The most common problems you may have are
  1. dry solder joints about the power stages such as regulators, and output/driver transistors/IC's.
  2. blown output transistors/output IC with possible fusible resistor failures, and or sometimes burnt up printed circuit tracks.
  3. a voltage rail failure from a burnt fusible or power supply component.
If you are up with electronic fault finding, soldering and have the tools, have a go yourself, I could talk you through it. If not, I would suggest you contact you local HiFi specialist and find who can repair it or at least check to see what has failed for you. Good Luck. If you cannot find someone, hit me back and I will try to find someone for you. Cheers

regards
