Need repair for older Bogen receiver

I cant find anyone that still carries or repairs Bogen audio receivers.
I live just outside of Houston,Texas 77546. I know that I could no doubt buy a new receiver for the cost of fixing this one but this model is special.
No other receiver sounds as good through my Optimus 45 speakers.
It has a short that cuts the left audio channel in/out. I've traced the short to a "bank" of buttons that includes the "auxillary" button. That button is where the short is. The buttons are all on one piece of hardware I will call a bank. I cant find Bogen parts anywhere and I'm fairly certain that this was a propriatory part that came straight from Bogen. Can you help me restore this awesome machine or find a repairman in my area who is familiar with Bogen? Thanks for reading.

Re: Need repair for older Bogen receiver

Any stereo repair shop should be able to repair your amp, as Bogen uses standard parts. I might mention that you may also want to repair you own amp. I would suggest you get a can of WD-40 oil or a tuner cleaner and spray it on the switch you feel is bad. See if this corrects the problem.
Good Luck

My son is using the HDMI output from his SR508 receiver to his TV. After using the receiver for awhile the picture sometimes goes blank, but the sound continues. He can restore the picture only after...

Onkyo has a mod. for some units hdmi problems. I believe yours is one of them. It needs 4 capicators to be installed. I don't know if All Brite is an authorized servicer or not. If they are they shoud be able to access the info for the repair.

Receiver does not recognize AM/FM signal.

From what I know all receivers need an antenna, there should be a connection in the back for one. Sometimes you can just use a piece of wire if you live in a large city.

Do the HDMI ports support audio or do I need to go buy optical cables to use them on my STR-DG510

The STR-DG510 carries video only over the HDMI port. Technically, this is a "pass-thru" port. Most older receivers are engineered to operate this way. Why? I don't know. You MUST provide the audio connection using a separate TOSLINK or RCA cable from the program source to the receiver while your video is connected via the HDMI port.

Stick to IT work, MSOFT IT pro. I got smart and bailed out being an IT guru. I got better things to do than screw around with the idiotic nonsense of Microsoft operating systems and applications being a thing of fashion rather than being useful and practical.

RX-V902 TV/DBS source coming through all other sources...

This could be as simple as having input and output line audio reversed. Please check all sources for proper connection. You can do this at the receiver too, but not both receiver and sources.....accordianman
