Re: SONY TA-1066

I had the same problem twice and each time it was failed transistor in the powerstage.It is possible that the cooling is not efficient enough when playing at high sound levels! Good luck, Radio amateur ON4CLY

Hi there.
Check for shorted speaker wires on left channel. If not, disconnect speaker wires and check to see if headphone jack works. If left works, you may have a blown speaker. If left still doesn't work, left power amp blown.

Sony TA-N9000ES Flash light when turn on.

an amp of this size generates alot of heat internally when in use as these use mosfet ICs and can get very hot.
your problem is most definately dry solder joints and possibly quite a few at that.
i've repaired quite a few sony surround receivers with similar problems and have all been down to dry solder joints.

hope this helps.

Hi Jimbob. Sounds like you have dirty/dry controls/switches. The contact lubricant dries out on them producing intermittent and scratchiness when you operate them. Clean any offending controls or signal switches with CRC2-26 by squirting(to flood then internals) each control/switch. you will have to do this from the inside of the amp. You may also have a dirty speaker protection relay, sound may return to a dead channel when you turn the vol up points to that. Good Luck. If you need more info feel free to get back to me here. Happy to talk you through more if you cant sort it out.
