The final transmitter is out, this is normally caused by a bad antenna, you will have to take it to a shop unless you know how to fix it yourself. Before you hook it back to the antenna you have, check the wire with an ohm meter to make sure there is not a short. If you can also try and hook the antenna to a meter that checks reflective power, this is power that is reflected back towards the antenna because of metal, like the hood up. Too much of this and it will also burn out the transister in the CB. This and the mic are the #1 repair issue at shops.

It does sound like a power supply problem with low voltage because there is not enough current (Amperage) getting to the circuits in the radio to allow it to function properly. Try a different power supply or power cord or move it to another vehicle if mobile and see if the problem follows the radio if it does it could be a bad or cold solder joint in the radio or a bad power switch I have seen both often after these radios got some age on them. Hope this helps, if you have the expertise perhaps you can fix it if not take it to a reputable CB Shop and tell them the symptoms if they have not seen this problem offer the suggestions here.

Technics SA-AX530 all modes not working - no sound


Not a good sign. There should be a click a few seconds after you turn on the unit. That says the output section is OK. If there is no click, you need repair. Perhaps only some fuses inside, but it could be worse.

Also make sure that the speaker switch is in the right position, like A, not A+B. Also the headphone jack can silence the speaker.
Make sure that ALL switches are in the right position.

I just picked up a used Onkyo TX-SR502 receiver that has no audio output on any of the channels. I obtained a service manual for it and have tried a few things, but dont know the source of the problem...


I have the same problem, how did you initiate debug mode ?
The receiver worked perfectly until a few days ago, then one day it didn't work when I turned it on but started working after a few minutes. The next day it did the same thing and the folowing day it didn't work at all. Have tried the power reset and also had the top off to see if there's anything really visibly burnt - nothing.
This receiver never got bad treatment, left on overnight a few times but not with sound running out, just powered up. It's a bit enclosed I guess so maybe overheated but I find it hard to believe.
Anyway, can someone advise how to initiate debug mode and also what to do with it.

Thanks

G'day mate yes you have a prob and i think it is empty 'transfer' case Toyota had a big prob with transfer case pushing oil into gearbox , result transfer case empty gearbox full. fix is when you get the transfer case off (maybe have stripped and checked ) then drill a small hole in the front of the transfercase at gearbox filler bung height and run the same oil in both if its a manual that is. hope this helps

I just bought a pioneer pl-200 turntable at a flea market. I plugged it into an old am/fm/8-track amp's phono input and I know the amp cranks on fm but on phono, it's very low sound. It does get louder...


Turntable signal outputs are very, very low amplitude and either have to pass through a pre-amp before being connected to an amplifiers "ordinary" inputs (e.g. aux), or connect to an amplifier's specific turntable input in order to give the "normal" levels of volume.
This is because the cartridge (the bit that has the stylus or needle on it) can only generate very small amplitude signals.
As turntables are now outdated, a lot of amps no longer have a turntable input any more.
Unless you can also find a cheap pre-amp or an old amp with a turntable input, you may have wasted your money.

No sound to speakers with power on


OK. That tells me that the output section is good. This may sound silly, but check to be sure that the tape monitor switch is not on.
