I have an Akai AA-A! tuner amp which has given good service over many years.Recently the radio stoped woking with no light on the dial, but the cd and tv inputs still work perfectly. I can get around the problem by playing the radio via my Sky receiver, but I would like to know if it is a simple fix?

Great on the DIY!Just an update; located the Service Manual / schematics. Doing a review. Would post again with initial diagnosis and test procedures in a while. May not be that immediate; bear with me.Offhand, proposed test for the presence of +12~15V on:
You are refering to items on the board schematics I assume.
I do not have these schematics so I do not know where I am to look for the test you refer to.
Could you say where abouts on the circuit board I should test for the 12v (presumably DC)
Appreciate the post back. To your queries:
Thanks for your reply. Yes electronic copy would help a lot.
Ps Sometimes after a while the radio starts working and the light on the tuner dial lights.
This is very significant as it would indicate that possibly:
