Sansui 5500 volume control

I need a potentiometer for a sansui 5500 receiver. It is 250K ohm (B) 2, the original stock number was 1010510. I'm having a hard time locating one. Anyone know who would have one or know of a new substitute that would work?

Yes. You can get replacement bulbs and no , it's not difficult to get the case off. Most likely 4 screws on the sides and a couple on the bottom

SOURCE: need a volume and balance

If this is an older unit, Samsung is no longer supplying parts for older units. They were bought over and it is no longer the same company.

You will have to send the amplifier to a shop that can do custom work and retrofit a new set of pots to the amplifier. They will use industrial parts and modify them to mechanicaly fit.

SOURCE: fuse size

I don`t know the machine but if you`ve got a multimteer or an ammeter, connect the meter across the fuse connector and read the current. If it reads 200ma, fit a 250ma fuse into the socket. If you give it about 50-100ma above the reading, you`ll be fine. Ian

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.

SOURCE: I have a sansui G9700 receiver/amp. The volume

The potentiometer doesn't need to be replace, it has collected dust inside causing the intermittent operation. Buy a contact cleaner/conditioner to spray inside it and move the potentiometer clockwise and counter clockwise a few times until the dust inside it is gone.
Check this link to find a contact/conditioner cleaner or you can try spraying rubbing alcohol but this could because alcohol doesn't not lubricants properties.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

I have a Sansui 4-channel receiver QR-4500, there is alot of fuzz in the sound. When I turn the volume control up or down there is fuzz, also when I use the balance controls there is fuzz. The front left...


Mike,

It depends on how you intend to use it, your technical skills, and how much money you're willing to put into it. If your intent is to use it with a LCD / Plasma home theater system, you would be better off purchasing a new receiver.

If you want to keep it for some other purpose, and have the technical skills and tools necessary to repair it yourself, I would recommend purchasing a service manual for your receiver.

The other alternative is to find an electronics repair shop and get an estimate on what it would cost to fixt it.

In some cases, problems such as fuzz in the volume and balance controls, can be fixed using a high quality non corrosive electronic contact cleaner. This type of "possible" repair works best with potentiometers. However, there's no guarantee contact cleaner will correct the problem. It may be necessary to replace the components.

If component replacement is necessary, the service manual will be an invaluable asset when it comes to finding a compatible replacement part.

I can understand why you might want to get it repaired as I'm a fan of Sansui, Nakamichi, and other like equipment. I currently have a Nakamichi receiver that has the same problem with the volume and balance controls. At some point, I'll take the time to repair it.

For now though, I purchased a new receiver to connect to my home theater system and I'm actually glad I did as the new receiver is more compatible with the hardware available on the market today.

Hi rp

You can get parts in the US direct from Pioneer. I have done a search for you and there is a parts list that mentions several vol controls. Click here

They have no stock however, and supply may be ex Japan. If you are not in the US, let me know where you are, and I will line up the correct website for you.
