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.

Speekers not working on my 771 sansui

What type of speakers are they? Example 4 ohm or 8 ohm. Then is there power to the device? If not there is a fuse to replace. Sometimes that is all the problem is. I can add a link for the diagram and service manual. The link has a downloadable PDF file you can use for troubleshooting. Diagrams and part numbers to help you figure this out. Here is the link: If you go to this site for the manual you will have to register with the site. This is free but you need an email to complete the registrations process.
If the power comes on to the device, and still no signal, you have an option that the audio output transformer (amp) may have burnt out. Sometimes this will be the problem. When smelling the unit in the power on position you can smell a burnt transformer. It smell kind of like burning plastic. This is a replaceable component on most models, but you need to learn how to do electrical soldering, w/heat-sinks, etc. NOTE: all of the devices can be checked by working backwards toward the problem. Start with a good (not too cheap) Volt/Ohm meter and check for a signal coming from the output of the Speaker connections. You must connect the ohm meter to DC voltage and then check it from the (+) and (-) connectors. I always start with a higher voltage setting and work down as to not blow out the fuse on the Meter! If you have no voltage impulses from those connectors then go to the next component. There may be a fuse in between the amp and speakers, so also check it. You can use the meter to determine if there is any power on either side, input and output, by adjusting the meter to DC Volts on the output and some have DC and some have AC inputs to the Amp. There is usually a fuse before the amp in all Component Stereos, make sure to check it also. If those aren't the culprits then you are better trying to find an electronics repair center, or replace the unit all together. Cost for a used one is comparable to getting one fixed if you are replacing big parts like an amp, unless you are going to do the work.
I hope this helps,

Could be just a failed fuse inside. It's replacement might restore power, but if it fails again, then there's an overload caused by a short-circuited part probably in the power supply section, where you will find that fuse.

Trying to hook up bose 901 v to sansui 8080db is

Just remove the Pre-Out to Main In jumpers and connect the Active Equalizer there. This way it will affect only the power output to the amp and speakers but not to any of the Tape Loops. If you need more, look around on Fixya for 901 advice and you'll find about a million posts by me for many scenarios, including multi-channel.

Sansui 21" tv light on but does not switch on

Either the power supply is shot and not providing enough power to the unit. It also may be faulty system board but that would probably just cause colored lines. I would have power supply checked out with multi-meter
