Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I am Pete, and I'll be glad to assist with your question today.
Have you tried disconnecting all of the speakers and then turning it on to see if this stops the standby light blinking?
no I will do that now
disconnected all components and speakers - no change
Ok, can you try a reset:
what do I do?
1. Turn the receiver on.2. Hold down the TONE button, then press and hold the Power button for 3 seconds.3. When you see RESET? in the display, press the TONE button to confirm.4. When you see OK? in the display, press the TONE button to confirm.5. OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset.
no change - just goes back to stand by blink
Ok, if the above solutions do not work then it's likely that there is a problem with the power supply board in the unit.
Fuse is good - any thing else to check inside?
Any of the components on the power board may have failed.
Sometimes faulty components can be seen visibly. eg burned or bulged.
Otherwise they will need to be tested.
If you have some experience in electronic repair, you can attempt to troubleshoot and fix this problem yourself.
Otherwise, you will need to take it to an electronics repair shop.
are there more than 2 fuses in the unit?
No, only two.
If you are receiving power (standby light is on or flashing) then the fuses are ok.
It's likely that some other component(s) on the power supply board have failed.
The most common parts to fail are the electrolytic capacitors.
If you visually inspect these, they may appear bulged or leaking, but it is not always possible to tell if they have failed just by looking at them.
