Vintage pioneer SX550 "sputters" when first turned on

I have a 30 yr old Pioneer stereo tuner/amp (SX550) in good shape except when it is first turned on, it "sputters" the light on the dial flickers and after a few minutes it stops this madness and actually works. Years ago it did this only briefly when switched on. I am guessing that it is a faulty capacitor and would like to find it and replace it myself. Would appreciate any help regarding this.

Wiring


Hello nootkabear,

Without the model number of your super tuner, it's not possible to point you to a specific location for the wiring diagram.

I'd start with Pioneer support to see if they have a download for the manual. If that fails, try the manualsonline site. Manualsonline is not a free site.

Hope this helps.
