Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
This is a multi deck stero system ,Phono, Tuner, Twin Cassett Deck ,Amplifier ( TA-D505 ) & 6 dics cd changer, When I turn on the system, there is a red light that flashes & will not stop on the volume dial, I have read other forums and this seems to be a common issues Regads Kipp, any info would be great. Thanks Again
It sounds like the output device may have failed. Check the manual it may explain it.

Is this one of the units that has a ribbon cable ( looks alot like an IDE hard drive cable) that connects all the components together? It also has a squre plastic fan that protrudes slightly from the rear (by about a 16th of an inch)? If so, it's the power module which consists of 2 boards (along the fan housing). You can probably find replacements for about $70, but I wouldn't bother. They quit making new replacements several years ago and any board you get now is just a pull from old stck units.... and they fail about 2 minutes after you put them in. Pioneer knows this but still sells the defective parts.

SOURCE: fuse holders weakened and broken
Apart from somebody spilling something on them my best guess would be something in the amp seriously overheating. Check out the power section: transformer, rectifers, voltage control section for faults. The holders can be got at Maplin (uk) or Radio Shack (US), but find the fault first BE CAREFUL it could start a fire!

I experienced something similar.
Symptom: After use the sound cuts out together with a mechanical click (relay sound). Turning off and waiting a bit before powering on, tends to 'fix' it, but the sound cuts out in the same way after a while.
The click led me to the little relay board inside. Inspection of the solder joints showed that a few were 'broken' ("cold soldered"). This was right below a high-wattage resistor, possibly the cause of the stress causing these random disconnects.
Fix: Resolder the joints.

SOURCE: I have sony TA-V715 amplifier,
The possibility is that one of your premap input is not working and the fault could be in the preamp input section. Possible that the input IC, the selector digital IC or the tone amp could be faulty. It will be easier to find as one section is working and you can cross check with voltage readings from teh working side. Also apply the audio test from the output to confirmt he section, replace from the working side to confirm the fault. I hope you have checked on the speakers/ ouputs by crossing.Also check for fuse or failure of the output section. Hope you try and confirm.Good day .

first make sure you have phonograph and everything else plugged in where it belongs. or better yet unplug everything and start over. plug in just one source or just use the tuner. make sure that the speaker wires are not shorting out on the back of the amp or at the speakers. if there is a speaker switch on the front (for speaker A or Speaker B) make sure speaker A is pressed in (if you hooked up Speaker A on the back (you may not necessarily have speaker switchs.) make sure when you try the tuner that it is tuned to a good solid station. If after all of the above it still doesn't work, maybe the move caused somthing to come loose inside
