    Power red light is on, but will not turn green even after unplugging set for 10 minutes. Signal comes thru HD black box [Shaw]
    Tech that I contacted told me that he could not effect repairs as the tech is changing so fast that he cannot keep current. Also Akai would not supply parts??

Aiwa AV-D57 , it has no power, the little red light will come on but that is it, it makes a clicking sound when pushing the power button, i checked the small fuse inside and it is good, what can be the...

assuming something isnt blown it sounds like you are having the same problem as me. when you remove the top of the of cover of the unit you will need to look in the back left hand corner of the unit where the power cable comes in. next to the fuse is a small black box that has a relay inside. you will need to remove the outside cover of this relay. make sure the power is unplugged on the unit before you go playing around the 120v input area, but once the power is removed, you will need to remove that cover. you should be able to get it with your fingers, but if not grap it with a pair of needle nose or something. more than likely the cover will crack if not break into a million pieces due to being brittle from years in the heat of your amp. its ok if it does. inside of this you will see a small relay which looks like a coil of small copper wire. on the top (side opposite the board it is connected to) is a silver piece of metal and if you push down on it, it should move like a lever causing two small copper pieces to the left to make contact. (warning: if you know about electronics and relays skip to the next paragraph) basically the coil of wire is an electromagnet. when you try to turn on the unit it powers that electromagnet pulling the shiny piece on top down as long as the unit has power forcing those to copper pieces together, which allows voltage to pass through the circuit just like flipping a light switch.

Your relay is too weak for whatever reason to force the circuit shut and will either click one good time or maybe a couple of times. you may even find that if you keep hitting the button it will come on eventually. unless you are good at soldering and want to waste the money I dont suggest replacing the relay. what I did for the cheapest fix possible was use some electrical tape and wrapped it around the relay forcing the contacts permanantly closed. Now be warned that if something else is wrong with your unit, or you short something in the future you may or may not have the type of protection you would normally have because this relay will not open. it may just blow the internal fuse if something shorts, it may fry the unit. I cant say for sure, because I havnt had that happen. so avoid shorting things or throwing bits of metal shavings and screws inside the unit while powered and you should have a working unit.

Power button comes on but no sound or picture

change the resistor in the relay circuit as they go high in value

also when you take power supply panel out check all caps for bulges etc.

No sound or picture

your relay is turning off most likelt due to on of the stanby voltages being out of parameters I would check the low voltage regulators and the horizontal output transistors.
