You'd be far better off taking it to someone local to you...assuming
you can find one. Even if you go for online repair, better to send
the unit directly to this guy's shop rather than go through our
resident scumbag.

What is the current state of other cities and good local old
school repair shops? We are fortunate in Winnipeg to have a shop with three
older guys (one being the owner) past retirement age that continue on
keeping shop. They are always busy and have done some good work for me on
several turntables and an 8 track deck or two over the years. A pretty great
resource to have around and they are highly prized by our local population.

yeah, he said it was minimum 100 buck charge plus shipping. I told
him it would cost that much to send it there from ca. and theres no
way im paying 200 bucks, on something Rusty and I can do by ourselves.

what the hell is going on? everyone's telling me something else is
wrong, who to believe and not to believe.
direct quote from trippin-2-8...
"don't listen to that DeserTBob guy- he gives repair advice, and when
a person does it, it ends up ruining their receiver and tape deck- the
guy is a poser"
"I have a cert in basic electronics, and have been repairing/buying/
selling stereos on the net and ebay now, for 7 years- my partner has
been in business for 30 years- what I can't fix, I take over there,
and we always end up fixing it- most times it is only 1 or 2 small
components to solder in- but it has to be isolated and troubleshooted
first, to find what's wrong- that's the hard part"

Bob,

If the e-mail is true, I bet the IRS and Mr. Stola would like to know
about Zito being a "partner".

i don't blame you for this, there is just too many trolls & people who think
they "know-it-all" in the newsgroups.

i am sorry for being late to this post, but maybe, i can give you some
troubleshooting help with this. i made my living doing this for a long
time.

your trouble may not be from the output transistors, but could be caused by
ether a dried up electrolytic capacitor in the signal path, or a resistor
that has gone out of spec. before messing around with the output
transistors, i strongly suggest that you get a schematic diagram for that
specific receiver, a signal tracer (a audio amplifier will work), & trace
through the signal path starting from the preamp / tone control stage &
work your way up to the driver stage. this will at least tell you if &
where you are losing your audio signal.
as i said earlier, it would be in your best interest to try troubleshooting
the signal path first before doing anything at all with the output stage,
that would be the last resort.

I was recommended to go here by rusty . I am new to vintage audio,
and recently got a toshiba sa-500. It has a pretty bad balance
issue. I have to turn the knob to 3 on the right for it to be
balanced. Any solutions?


it sounds like that there is a problem in the signal path like a resistor
that has opened up or a dried out electrolytic capacitor. i don't think it
is a output stage problem.

here is the best place to go to get help with your vintage Toshiba.
