Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Technics SA-GX350 5-channel surround sound receiver. The service manual can be found here.
This is a great receiver and has been working for a long time. I bought it at a yard sale about 7 years ago and have never had any problems with it. Then all of a sudden, about a week ago, it stopped working. I press the power button and I hear a click coming from either the transformer or somewhere around it. Nothing else happens. The display doesn't light up, no sound comes out of the speakers; nothing. I took it apart and inspected it the best that I could. The only problem I found was two 330 ohm resistors that appeared to have blown. I replaced them, but this did not fix the problem. No fuses are blown, and none of the components (besides the afore-mentioned resistors) appear to be damaged. I don't know what's wrong with it, and I would love to get it working. This is a very good receiver (at least for my budget), and I hope I can find a solution. Thank you
Please update the initial posting and continue the diagnosis there. The initial response is repeated below.
There could be a number of reasons for this. It woyld help if you could indicate what resistors you changed. The circuit designation should be marked on the PC board. Please post those here and I'll look further and provide some possible solutions.
