Pioneer sx 737

Is it a big job to replace lamps in this unit.  Right now the fm stereo lamp is out and the meters are slightly dimmer than the rest of the unit.  I would like to get them all replaced.  If I was to take it to a tech what migt I expect to pay for this service or could I do it myself.  Myself being a maint tech for a cable Co for 27 yrs. Thankyou

The relay is a protection device for the speakers. It will shut off the speakers when problems are detected internally. I would suspect that some of the capacitors in the front end are in need of replacing. This is a common item for units this old. I have restored a number of these for customers over the years with much success. Figure about $15-$20 in parts for this repair plus the local labor rate. This unit is definately worth a refurb. What happens is that there is dsome DC voltage being leaked into the final amplification stage. This triggers the protection circuit to shut off the speakers. DC voltage on a speaker will heat up the coil and eventually destroy the speaker.

Any luck with checking antenna connections? I have a service manual if you need it. Tuner section in this old girl predates the LM7001. Uses ha1137-38 chips, bit more complex to repair.

You might try to get some information from: Somebody will need it if you want it worked on. If it is real heavy (40lb.s +) it may well be from the 70's. Mostly good units. I wouldn't give you $0.10 for their new stuff.

Check the speaker wire. Sometimes it can just be loose in the terminals and cause distortion. I have had the problem before.

Put to big of a fuse in my pioneer sx-203 and burt out a cucit

Using a higher voltage fuse is not a problem, but if the fuse you used amps are to high, that is a problem. Sounds like a resister burnt. You have a short somewhere in that particular circuit, which is what took out your original fuse. . .your fuse did it's job by blowing and saving the circuit. If you can get your hands on a schematic, you can trace the circuit and find the short.

Short circuit ruined dimmer. need replaced ASAP

These can also be damaged by having the power applied during final connection... The inrush current from the cold lamp can blow the Triac in them, as well as a short circuit.

If you can replace the triac in the unit the rest is probably OK.

All i can tell you is it is a Panasonic HDTV1080i . It tell me the lamp need replacing and the lamp meter needs rest.where is this and how do i replace and reset the meter

The Lamp is located on the right hand side of your TV.
To reset your Panasonic Lamp Time:
ø Press and hold these buttons for (at least) 5 seconds:
ø Volume Down button (on TV Panel).
ø AND ACTION Button (on remote).

As the remote gets older the ACTION button may not respond unless you press the button dead center and not at an angle.

Thanks for using FIXYA, BIG IRISH.

I just bought an old vintage pioneer sx 737 receiver and cannot get NO fm reception, and only 2 or 3 on am....HELP!!!!! I have used antennas as well...Charlie

Even with just a short wire, this model should be receiving a number of stations. Is there an IC inside marked LA7001 or something similar? If so, it is probably defective. This is a common failure. I'll look up your specific model later to confirm.
