My receiver still turns on and I can here a faint sound if I turn the volume way up. It was working fine until a day when there was some very brief power dips due to whether or folks working on the lines. Is it a blown fuse and where? Or something to do with the amplification? Is it worth taking to be serviced or cheaper to get something new? (At over 5 years old it's well past any warranty.) Or could I learn to find and fix the blown part with pluck and skill? Thanks for any advice.
Is the tape 2 monitor on, this problem sounds like that is the problem.
If you hear a faint sound I doubt if a fuse is blown?? never Know though. You have to have and know how to use a DVM or muti-meter to trouble shoot solid state electronics, as well as know how to solder and check transistors and other electronic parts. There wouldnt be one particular thing that could cause your problem. There could be a several things wrong as transistors and ICs tend to snowball and short out or open up with power surges. If you want , first get a schematic, but if you dont know how to read one stop right here and save your money and upgrade to a shiney new stereo system.. Good Luck
Carefully examine the front panel for clues like a misplaced Mute or Tape Monitor control or Multichannel Analog Input selected.
There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead
