Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Posted by Anonymous on
If turning it off for a long period of time allows it to work again, I'd be looking for failing capacitors (large ones)
If it was a simple thermal problem, it wouldn't take that long to cool - however it CAN take that long for a large capacitor to discharge.
Start at the outputs and work your way back - but any cap that is bulging on top or bulging on the bottom or leaking electrolyte will need to be replaced.
So many devices right now (most notably flat panel displays and amplifiers) are having this issue because someone got the electrolyte formula wrong, and then about 6 companies copied the formula.
Most of these caps are failing in units that are just out of warranty, some last 3 or 4 years - it completely depends on the application of the caps.
