Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
I have a TECHNICS SA GX-500. All of a sudden the volume indicator red line went out and all volume turned off. The only indicator lights that remain are PHOHO TUNER VCR1 VCR 2 etc.Did the receiver MUTE itself? If so, How do you unmute without a remote.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the ago of this unit. You might look in your owner's manual, and see if there's a procedure for, "Return to factory defaults, or just Reset". If this unit is controlled by a microprocessor(computer within your unit), this reset may resolve your issue. If this doesn't correct your issue and require additional assistance, or would like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

The question is, do you hear any sound? Is just the display off or is the entire unit shutdown? Can you tell?
These displays are known to develope poor solder connections at the power input and ground pins. If you can solder, open up the unit (unplugged of course) and examine the pins for the display. This will be on the PC board attached to the front panel. The pins at either end of a long line of pins will be the power and ground pins. Reasolder those pins, taking care not to short the pins together and try the unit once done. If that does not resolve the problem (assuming it is just a display problem), update this with as many details as you can about the behavior of the unit and we'll look further.
