No sound from front speakers - TEAC AG-D8900 receiver

by rustbowl / June 20, 2007 8:06 AM PDT

I have an old TEAC AG-8900 receiver and the sound has stopped from the front speakers. I have tried different speakers and changed the speaker wire to no effect. Because of the expense, I can't bring it in for service so I was wondering if anyone could suggest what I might to myself to correct or troubleshoot this. I read online that some receivers have seperate fuses for different speaker sets, for instance. Any idea where these might be located? I'd greatly appreciate any other suggestions. Thanks very much.

Get out the manual and read the troubleshooting section. Look on the back of your receiver for something that looks like a screw cap, that may comtain a fuse. There could also be a breaker and a reset button. If it has an A/B speaker switch, try the B terminals. Try the speakers in the rear terminals to make sure they work etc..

Sounds like a old good quality stereo amp Some of those old amps had 2 fuses inside, try this also pull cover and look for a circut board near where the speaker terminal are there may be 2 fuses soldered to curcut board or on clips dont spend two much on repairing it because you can buy a hi-quality 5.1 a/v/ mp for about $200 and if you want to use it for plain stereo just set amp to 2.0 good luck steweee
