Sansui AU 3900 vintage 1974

I have a sansui AU 3900 it has been in my closet for lets just say untold years because I took it to several sound stores and was told they didn't have the schematics for it and I was probably out of luck.
The problem I am having is when I turn the power on within a few seconds the amp shuts it self down.

Try rick at stereomanuals.com
The shutdown would be from a voltage supply in the power amp seeing too heavy a load and "shutting down" so that the amp doesnt Fry

I have a Sansui 2000A Stereo Tuner Amplifies that powers up but has no sound. the fuse for the 220-250V 2A was blown and replaced. The speaker fuses look good. Should I replace them too or is there...


If the fuse was blown on the 220-250 V side, I am assuming that you are in the UK, if you aren't , but are in the US, change the power setting dial/switch on the back to 100-120v and you might be good to go. Also, I know this may sound silly, but make sure that the speaker selector switch is pressed in or set to a speaker set ( A or B). Love the Sansui gear, have many complete systems myself!

Sansui G-7700 digital display


Funny that you just posted. On Monday, I dropped off my G-7700 at The Audio Lab in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. http://www.theaudiolab.com/

As soon as I walked in the place I knew I was at the right spot. They service and sell some really high-end vintage units as well as carry brand new high-end audio equipment. $60/hr for service work. As a gauge, my G-7700 took 2hrs to do a complete overhaul, which included replacing some pots, re-soldering cold joints, calibrating the tuner and other components. i thought it worked really well before!

Experienced, knowledgeable, efficient.

Give them a call and ship your G-7700 to them. It's worth it.

I own a classic Sansui intergrated amplifier (AU-717). It has a short in one channel. At low volume, the sound shorts out. I've had this unit for about 20 years now. Otherwise, it's a great product!


Hi mellemcee


Cool amp mate, and becoming collectable now to. Sansui amps from the era where the best in the world of HiFi. iT may have lost bias control to the offending channel, it may have dirty source switches, tape monitor switch, or even speaker switching. The speaker protection relay may also have a dirty contact, will usually burst back into life with a quick rotation of the vol control. Can you pin the problem down a little more with the info i have given you, try all the controls to see if it impacts on operations, you will need to fix those problems first. Low bias would make that channel sound distorted at low levels also. Is this what is happening to you??
