Sansui 8900zdb receiver

Svengali's picture

I just bought a Sansui 8900zdb receiver on eBay. The seller said it worked.. It powers up but produces no sound thru phono A or B, FM or AM. Any suggestions about what to initially look for as the cause?

Make sure the tape monitor switch is in the correct position. Do you hear the protect relay click after a couple of seconds after powering on? If not, there may be internal damage from shipping or there amplifier damage not revealed by the seller.
Note: after you get into this receiver you have accepted it as is.
