Toshiba SA2500 stereo reciever

I have this reciever that I bought back about 1980. It quit working several years ago and got put on a shelf when I bought a new system.
I thought the switch had gone bad, but when I got it out recently and tried to fix it, I found that the switch was ok, that there was some other problem. When I turn it on, nothing happens, no light on the dial, no static on the radio, nothing. I took the cover off and tried replacing the fuses that I found there (3) but still no luck. I couldn't see anything that was obviously out of place, no loose wires or anything.
Thank you for your help.

Re: 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.

I suggest you get a schematic, find the main power transformer -- not the big one -- and see what the output voltage of it is. Could be there was a line surge and it cooked a zener diode that regulates power supply voltage. I can help you find a schematic.

Sounds like the power supply or associated module. Definitely fixable, but probably needs a technician.

Sounds like a grounding problem. If the ground plug isn't missing or loose try plugging it into a different outlet.

On the first board (where the power enters) there is a tall 3 pronged switch, if you turn the board over and solder a piece of wire to the 2 outside prongs, you will find that the Amp works normally apart from that the display reads Cd closed when in Cd mode.

I have KRX 891 Kenwood Stereo system... The receiver just stopped working one day about 4 years ago... i found out that Radio Shack sells fuses, and i have asked in the past if it could be a fuse, but...

Karen, this may be an easy fix. There are a couple of screws on top of the unit and about 8 or 9 around the back edge. First make sure the unit is unplugged. Remove these screws andyou can lift the cover off. On the left side you will see 2 glass fuses. Gently pry these out and you will see they are marked on the end caps with voltage and amperage ratings. Replacements are very affordable at Radio shack. Good luck! B-)

Front speakers have no sound now.

Hups, apparently my friend put the speakers into wrong slots. Then i just copied him while trying different speaker setups and it simply never occurred to either of us to check if these were the correct slots :-D

Anyway sorry for these useless posts.

I connected my 30 gig ipod to my sharp 5 disc shelf stereo. it connects with a usb.. now my ipod will not shutoff or pause.. itunes does not recognize that an ipod is connected.. i have not connected...

make sure that your shelf stereo in IPOD ready most unit need a bridge of some sort or a dock. If your receiver is ready and it is not working still then the problem is in the multi media device.

Center and surround speakers work, but front right and front left speakers do not put out any sound

I had the same problem. Set the reciever on 6 channel stereo. On this setting, you should be getting the same sound out of each speaker. Isolate which speakers aren't getting sound. Now, on your speaker switch (the A/B button), select A. If that doesn't fix it, select B. If that doesn't fix it, try A and B (if you can on your reciever).

Now, when you switch back to pro-logic, make sure your a/b channel switch is in the position that worked in 6 channel stereo. Yamaha recievers have a memory, and when you switch various modes, it makes auto adjustments based on what you had set in the past.

Hope this helps

No Sound when I play DVD's

The optical connection on the TV is most likely an input, not an output. You need to connect the Xbox to the receiver, then the TV. If the receiver does not have a HDMI input, use another audio or digital out from the Xbox to the receiver.
