How to fix short in older stereo?
PLEASE help me fix this problem....
I have a 70s Marantz 2225 receiver. Lately the right side speakers keeps shorting out. I have to touch/jiggle the "push-in" buttons to make it work again. (For example the buttons on left side..like the Dolby, Tape 1, Mono, Hi Filter) When the right side comes back on..it will short out again quickly. "Seems" to happen more often when the volume is louder...but not sure. It doesn't seem like one button is causing the problem as it seems to work when I jiggle most buttons...even the "push-in" buttons on the right side. No short happens when I jiggle the whole stereo or touch different connections on the back of the stereo.
So it as simple as opening it up an cleaning around the buttons or is it a situation where I need to fix/change/replace something? If it should be as simple as cleaning...how do I do that...spray, oil, brush...do I need to take the plugs out or just clean then without removing too many pieces? Is there an online video somewhere to show me how to clean them...if that is the problem.
I am a very novice guy with electrical stuff. :(
