Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Tandy Consumer Services (Radio Shack's repair shop) can fix it for you. You can ask for an estimate first, so you'll have a good idea of the repair costs. I have one of these units myself, and I used to work for Tandy. They have all of the schematics and parts that they'll need to repair it. You could probably have it done for less than $200.

That old 2100 is a great receiver, but, there are many things that could blow the fuse.
Your biggest problem is age. The capacitors dry out, transistors deteriorate with age and heating/cooling. The power supply board in the unit works very hard and I am amazed it's lasted this long without repair.
This is a decision on whether or not you want to spend some major cash restoring it or not. There is no point in just going in and fixing the problem, because you will have many more age related problems very shortly. Thats the curse of well build old gear. It lasts well beyond its expected life, to the point where the only sure repair is either total replacement ( new unit ) or total refurbishment ( yank out the all the old parts and renew the whole thing ). I would suggest a repair shop that specializes in restoration.....and your cell phone set on 911 speed dial for the final bill !!...good luck...Rob
