Hi bhannant

I suspect that there is a switching problem to the meter that is not working. The meter is shared with other fuctions on the amp, and there is quite a signal path/switch array connecting it. I would suggest tweaking rotary switches(particularly dolby related) to see if you can isolate the problem down to a particular one, then give it a clean with CRC2-26

I have the service manual I you want a copy. Just let me know.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

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!

My sansui 1000 receiver keeps blowing fuses


Fuses blow when there's an overload. This is often caused by the main power amp devices located on the heat sink. If they are transistors you can test them with an ohm meter. It will be just like you have put the two test probes together on the separate pins of the device.

I have a Sansui G-4700 Pure Power DC Stereo Receiver. We were happy with it for many years. Five years ago, we moved from a house to a condo, and it has been in storage since the move. I am thinking of...


Of course it will work with any standard stereo RCA source (which just about everything STILL has) but it won't work directly with any digital sources. It has NO digital interfaces.

Just bought a 9090 at a flea market; everything lights up, including the red "protection" light at the power button, which flashes. There's no sound, and the power meters don't budge.


The outputs are probably shorted. This unit requries service. I can say though, that once repaired, you will love this unit. Expecta repair cost inteh $150-$200 range. It is worthy it. If the unit is in good condition (appearance), than it is worth $400+ when working.

I have a Sansui AU-717 Integrated Amplifier that needs some work done on it. Is there a Sansui service center in Washington State that can work on this?


This company is not like they used to be. You can try the links below to see if you can find authorized service for your set.

I would personaly suggest to find a service center or a very good local tech who can do audio amplifier and reciever service.

Sansui amp problem


This sounds like you lost the 5V supply. If you can solder, look for bad solder connections around the voltage regulator ICs. These look like transistors (3 legs) and may be attached to a heatsink. They will be marked 7805 +/or 7905.
