Amplifier—Amplifiers can overheat if you block the air ventilation grills on the amplifier cabinet.
Tape deck—The drive mechanism can wear out over time.
DVD player—The lens that reads the disc can become misaligned or dirty.
Television—Leaving a static image on the display too long can burn the image into the screen.
Diagnosing problems with your Sansui receiver
If your receiver doesn't turn on, the first thing to examine is the power cord behind the unit. Is it properly connected to the receiver and plugged in? Are there any tears or other damage?
If the cord is okay, the next step is to examine the receiver for signs of physical damage. Are the buttons intact? Is there physical damage to the case? Is there any sign of water damage?
Unplug the receiver, open the case and look for loose wires or anything else that seems out of place.
Use a multimeter to test each electronic component for connectivity.
