Denon AVR 1706 Powers on display then shuts off lght blinks red

replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. i had the exact same problem with mine and once i replaced the capacitors it powered up and stayed on and worked perfect.
these capacitors tend to fail as they're of poor quality.
this fault is very common on denon receivers, especially the later models.

hope this helps?

Blinking light on front of amplifier Technics SU-V10X

Blingking Light usually means that there is DC appearing in output stage and is protecting Connected Speakers.
It can be faulty Output Stage (Bad ICs/Transistors/Resistors/Capacitors) or Faulty Power Supply.

Working on These types of Problem is not user friendly at all.

Advising to take local Authorized Shop.

Circa 1980 nakamichi tuner amplifier TA-3A

Hi jac48k

Anything branded Nakamichi is worth repairing in my opinion. The problem may be something quite simple, or worst case a blown output stage. First check that there are no problems with the speaker wiring or speakers. This can be done quickly by disconnecting the speaker wires and see if the unit fires up correctly. If it still shows the protection mode by blinking power light, then it will need some repair work done. If you are not versed in electronic repairs, fault-finding or soldering, then i suggest looking fpor a repair guy. Contact your local HiFi specialist retailer, They always know who you can trust to look at it for you, if not take it on themselves. Good Luck.

Gem Sound XP-350 both channels failed

Speaker fuses are generally fast-blow styles 250 volt glass
If an amp shuts down, with speakers connected, it sounds like one of the power supply lines does NOT like what it's "seeing" . Probably output transistors bad ( or module)

Take it to a tech.

Sherwood AI5010 no sound from either channel

Its very unusual for both channels to blow......

I suspect that there is a blown power fuse inside the case......

There are fuses sometime located on the outside rear of the case and these can be easily checked to determine if they are blown..If you find one is blown please replace with the corrrect rated fuse,..... its current rating wil be on a small label on the case outside rear. like 1.0amp, or 1.5amp etc...

If you need to go inside the case please ensure the power plug is removed from the wall socket first.

You will find small glass fuses in the DC power supply feeds and probably one of these has blown, once again replace with the correct rated fuse.

Im not sure if your amplifier is a FET type or a large 32-40 pin IC type as if these are blown you will need a service person to do the replacement...

Please note there is a small relay that clicks 20seconds after turn on at the switch....if this click is not happening then there is problems with the timer circuit or the relay itself...

This relay controls the output to the speakers and as such stops all the sound output if its not the first thing is to check all fuses, if they are OK then check the Relay operations....

Cheers From YUBEUT
