Problem with "power off" message

Hey i have had this reciever for quite awhile now and i have been lazy to get it fixed because of my "power off" message. I am not sure on what the problem is but i know it probably is ther power supply or the main amp circuit. I am not aware on how to fix this or if it can be fixed. Any information please let me know. ps. there are no other wires connected to the reciever when this message appears.

I keep getting a Protector reding on my screen and it will not let me do anything. What do I do to fix this?

Try disconnecting everything (speakers cables, signal cables, all other units) except the power cord, then turn the unit on, if the protector message persists, then the fault is in the reciever.

If this is the case, you should check the speaker and signal connectors for any damage, shorts or loose solder contacts, also check the unit for any shorted or broken wires, loose wire connections, bad solder contacts on connector pins, bad solder contacts on ANY other components (give some extra attention to the components that tend to warm up while they operate, like main power amp transistors / ICs, voltage regulators, power resistors, diodes, also coils, capacitors, etc). Any loose solder connections should be resoldered.

If there's no message when you've disconnected the outside equipment, you have either a bad speaker, a bad speaker cable, a bad signal interconnection cable, or a fault in any of the units that were connected to the reciever. You can find which one is the cause by turning the reciever off, then connecting one cable or unit, turning the reciever on again, see if there's a message, if there's none, turn it off again, connect the next unit / cable and so on, until you get the protector message. The cable or unit that will make the message appear is most probably the cause for the trouble (there might be loose solder connections on other units' cable connectors or other components). When you plug and unplug the cables many times, with time this will loosen the solder connection on the pins inside the unit, so these need to be resoldered.

Hope you can find out what it is.

No sound driver

Turn the power off. Wait about 10 seconds,then power up again get close to the reciever and listen for a click-not from the speakers ,fromthe recievers itself.If you hear a click,you can assume that the power supply is ok for that cercuit.This does'nt eliminate the power supply,but it will do for now.Put the speakers close to the reciever,what you will do now is to power up the reciever while listening to the speakers with the volume off.In about 3-5 seconds you should a hear a slight click from the speakers. Try this with both speakers if you don't plug in a pair of headphones to the headphone jack and play the source . If you still no sound with headphones you at least now know that the output transistors are not the problem or the only problem.The power amp., section are defected also.Message whatever happens.

Toshiba SA2500 stereo reciever

There may be some missing voltages from the power supply or a circuit pulling it down. Needs to go to a shop that knows how to fix older equipment.
