Hello and sorry you're having problems.

What sources are connected to the receiver (CD player, Tape deck, turntable, etc.)?

Is there no sound regardless of which source you select?

How about if you select the built in FM tuner?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Additionally, check the "Tape Moni 1" and "Tape Moni 2" buttons and make sure none of those are depressed. Let me know the answers to the above and we can proceed.

Select the FM tuner- any sound, yes or no please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No sound on fm either
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

This would indicate a hardware failure in the receiver- since the built in FM tuner supersedes all external connections and settings. If the receiver was working, and then simply went out, then you likely have a fault in the output transistors in the receiver (the most common cause of this problem). Please try this, if you unplug the receiver from power, wait a minute, then plug it back in.....turn it on and turn it up, is there any hiss, buzz or static from the speakers at all please?

No sound
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Then this does indicate the output stage (the transistors that directly power the speakers) have failed and will need to be replaced on a component level to fix the receiver. The average cost for this type of repair is between $150-$200 parts and labor and a shop can be located at the link below:

I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
