Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today Could you please send me a hello so i know you see my reply ?
When you say the tv sound you mean the tv station sound through the VSX , is that correct ?
Not the tv speakers
By the way ,all offers are automated by the website , not sent by me
You are saying that when the sound cuts , the display also cuts out and the MCACC light is blinking ?
Still with me ?
Sounds to me like you may have bad solder joints internally and for a receiver 10 years old it would not be surprising
Most often these solder joints will be on the regulator chips and transistors in the power supply circuit and also mounted on the heatsinks for the audio outs.
A repair shop may not be too expensive in such a case but you can still expect a $100 in repair cost .
Of course right now this is just an educated guess as I can`t be there with tools and meters
Tap on top of the receiver , does that provoke the failure ?
O.k then I still believe you are dealing with bad solder but it could also be an intermittent regulator cutting out
You could check with local repair shops , many of them will give you a free or low cost estimate but that $100 could also be well invested in a more modern receiver

Yes about the t sound but connect your cable/satellite box directly into the tv if it is not already
