Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I require a mains transformer for an A-H300 or a contact for a repair of the transformer. Part is apparently no longer available. All thats wrong with it is the thermal fuse.

Hi Keith

You can often replace the thermal fuse yourself often, just got to dig for it under the layers of tape and insulator. They often have tinned leads,. If you are outside the USA, you can even just bypass it, so long as the amp still has a fuse in the primary mains cct. Its about preventing fires here, so if you are not sure then don't mess with it.

Sony av receiver #str-dh700. only could hear relay clicking when i press power . the system could not be come on . what it be / & how to repair it?


One of two things. Either the main power fuse is open or the power transformer is bad. If the fuse is blown, then it usually means you have a bad amp channel that needs to be repaired. If it's not the main fuse, then the thermal fuse in the transformer may have opened which requires the transformer to be replaced.

Sony STR-DE575 connected to 220V


Doubt the main pcb needs replacing, but the standby transformer would definitely go in that situation. Standby transformer wouldn't be that expensive, but no way to say that it's the only thing that is bad. It is also soldered in, so you would need to know how to do that to replace it, or bring it to someone who could. If you're staying long-term in Europe, it might just be better to buy something local so as to not run into this problem again.

Google the complete model number of your "amplituner" and see if a schematic is available from the parts suppliers or if a complete schematic is available from Denon..

Right hand side speaker channel not working, it may have blown but havent been playing it loud at all. is this easy to repair/ worth repairing thanks emilio


Truly, it all depends on what's really wrong it and if it's worth the price to fix it to YOU, doesn't it? Only a tech can look at it and tell you the cost to fix it. We can't just hold our heads to the screen and mind-meld with it.

The power switch needs to be replaced or the contacts cleaned/resurfaced.
As for the lights they probably need replacement also. Check for voltage on them (probably A/C but check for D/C also.

Roland Jazz Chorus 120 no signs of life! Plug fuse & back of amp mains fse OK Mains transformer??


The transformer on these units contains an internal fuse that may have blown. With the unit unplugged, measure across the primary winding of the transformer. It should read low ohms. If you get infinity, the primary is open and will require replacement.

I have a Harman Kardon 700 Series amp/pre-amp/tuner system that I want to get repaired ( an HK 770 Twin Torroidal Ultra Wideband DC Amplifier, a matching HK 725 Pre-Amplifier, and a matching HK 710 Tuner)...


This will take a little homework on your part, but parts for this might be available. I don't kow your model well enough to know whether or not the power switch is generically available. Any possibility you can post a picture? Manufacturers are only required to maintain spare parts for 5-7 years after they stop selling that model. If the part is generic enough, other distributors will carry replacements. If all you need is the power switch, you stand a good chance that a replacemetn is available.
Keep me posted,

Marantz CDR500 has record bay which no longer opens. I was told some time back that this is not repairable and that Phillips, who made the drive, no longer makes them so it is essentially a total loss. ...


This is a tricky one, because from the view of an authorized Marantz servicer, the replacement "part" is probably the entire drive which may no longer be available. It is possible that the true problem is that the main drive belt is slipping. In that case, replacing the belt will fix the problem. As long as the unit is not under warranty, any service shop should be able to attempt a repair. They can not make it worse and perhaps can resolve it cheaply.

Unit won't power up completely


The clicks you hear are the relay that completes the circuit for 110V AC to the main power transformer. Mine had the same problem and here's how I've gotten it to work. A lightning strike near our house caused it to fail, and I traced it to the power transformer relay activation circuit. The tuner and amp were fine. I found a bad transistor in the relay circuit, but didn't have a replacement on hand, so I soldered a jumper wire across the relay switch connections on the power transformer circuit board. This connects the 110V AC directly to the power transformer. DC Power to the amp and tuner circuits will still be controlled by the power switch, but the transformer will be supplying all the AC voltages to the main board. If there is a real problem with the circuits that load the transformer or the transformer itself, then the fuse will blow. If the fuse doesn't blow then I suspect the problem is just in the power sequencing circuit itself, that is not needed for operation other than to make the unit "Energy Star Compliant". A lot of electronic items have a transformer that is not switched, and only fused, so that the supplies are available at all times.

Power up problem


try powering the unit right down by disconnecting from the mains supply. fire up after 5 mins and see what happens. There is a separate transfomer for the standby supply(small red light) An internal fuse may have failed or the thermal fuse inside the transformer. If fuses blow as sson as you fire up = output transistors hay be short circuit.
