Pioneer SA9800

A couple months ago I bought a Pioneer SA-9800 at a thrift store for five bucks he said it did nothing when He plugged it in. Tonight I plugged it in for first time it lit up now I am all excited I tried hooking up speakers and CD player to Aux no luck. I'm not going to give up on it but I don
't know what I should do next. My pioneer sx1500TD needs a new volumn/balance switch can't find one anywhere. Any suggestions Thanks

First check to see if the jumpers for pre-amp out/amp in are there; you will have no audio if they are missing.
You may have a problem on the regulator power supply board. Could be bad transistors, capacitors, fuses or resistors. Testing is rather involved and the first step is to check voltages; if you are not technically inclined it may be time for a visit to the repair shop.
There's a volume control on eBay now for $29.99 for the SX1500td.

Thank you for the heads up about the volume control. About the SA9800 I'm going to give it a shot something I have wanted to learn for a long time.
