Customer Question

I have a VSX-D701S purchased in Hong Kong in 1992-1993. It has been a wonderful machine until a couple of months ago. I suspect maybe a power supply, but maybe something else. No lights, nothing when turning on the power. Remote turns on/off unit only. All power, all leads were pulled, but no change. I' m not giving up on this unit yet....to the repair shop it will go, but where? Suggestions? I'm in Crystal City, Missori, zip is 63028. Appreciate your help!

Hello and sorry you're having problems. No power at all to the unit is actually an easier fix in many cases than power but no sound. Common culprits are the AC mains fuse inside the receiver (located a few inches within the power cord connection to the PCB), a shorted diode bridge, or failed power supply filter caps. Expect the average cost for this repair to be in the $125-$150 range unless the main transformer has blown (then you're looking at closer to $200-$225 parts and labor).
