Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Fisher CA-885 Integrated Stereo Amplifier that is stuck in stand-by mode. It is a stereo system that I have stored for years out in my shed so it has been exposed to heat and cold. Prior to that it worked fine. Yesterday, I hooked up the rack system and it was working until I put it in standby mode and then tried to take it out of standby mode. When I put it in stand-by mode, all the lights on then system went out and the stand-by light was on. When I tried to take it out of stand-by mode, the system lights came back on but the stand-by light didn't go out and I can't get any sound out of it. How can I get it out of stand-by mode when pushing the stand-by button doesn't work and unplugging it and replugging it in doesn't work?
Given the heat/cold cycles of the storage area along with humidity, I would first suspect poor solder connections. This is not unusual for units of this age. A general overhaul should restore this to operation. This should be a labor only repair unless the output STK is bad. These units are known for having poor connections at the voltage regulators which cause a DC voltage offset triggering the protection circuit. The overhaul should address this as well.
Keep us posted on your progress.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not sure if I am going to have it serviced or not. I may take the cover off and see if it is something obvious that I can try to fix. I called around today and having it serviced isn't cheap. It might not be worth it. But I will look at the solder connection and fuses. Thanks"

Something doesn't add up. You mention two connections to the speakers - CA-9335 and a "simple jvc cd player". Is that true? If so, you might want to UNconnect the CD from the speakers and run it into the receiver where it belongs. An amp isn't designed to share the load with another live device; or even have electrical contact with anything BUT speakers.
Did you actually find documentation that supports this hook-up? Or just winging it?
