Question about Sony STR-DE935
My mid 1980's Sony fm stereo fm-am receiver model str-av900 has stalled on me. I us it with a Sony 5 disc compact disc player cdp-ce125. I know they are old, but have been preforming excellently. The disc changer is hooked up to the receiver and when the receiver is powered on then I just add cds and hit play and cd starts playing. However lately the receiver shows in the graphic equalizer that the cd is playing and the disc changer shows that the cd is playing -- but no sound. It once only took about a minute for the sound to be heard, no it takes longer and longer like after 15 minutes I gave up. Would this be expensive for repair are should I just give it up and buy a new receiver? and which new receiver, when I shopped they are all for hookup with Home theaters. Help me.
Since the receiver eventually works, the delay circuit is failing. This is a circuit that allows the power supply to settle down before kicking in the output relay. This prevents the "pop" that was sometimes heard on older units. This should be a simple and inexpensive repair probably requiring the replacement of a couple of small capacitors in that delay/protection circuit.
