Hi Shahid -
Thank you for your prompt assistance,
It's possible this exchange of correspondence may go on for a bit...I'm not at all technical, and " stand little chance of finding an qualified expert in this area of Spain to help. However I do have contacts who will have some knowledge of basics electronics to help out.
when you refer to a "multimeter", is this something that can likely be purchased here and used in conjunction with a service manual ()is one available for this US model at this late stage?) and are the test findings likely to require parts that may no longer be available - or is it basically repair work with soldering etc?
As I mentioned in my first mail, my fear ir more that some damage was done by my Spanish neigbour attempting to switch on the machine via a normal power point adaptor, rather than the converter I purchased.
Incidentally, for some reason the JUST ANSWER system sometimes rejects my e-mail address as being owned by another customer ! I've reported this to their SUPPORT. My e-address is *****@******.*** - and your response obviously got throgh to me. so maybe the problem is sorted.
Over to you
Thanks Shahid -
I am seriously considering sending the Pioneer Amp to the UK for repair. if necessary. Are you affiliated with a suitable company that would undertake the work? Or any recommendations?
Incidentally, I have another (later) model of the this A/V amp (VSX 9700S) which is also faulty. But that amp did not require a voltage converter because I believe Pioneer UK did the conversion for me from within when I purchased it in the 1990s, If I find someone to open up to inspect the 7500, is it worth checking to see if such a facility exists within this model - or is this inadvisable?
Colin, VSX9700S is different model, nearest match to VSX7500S is VSX9500S. I'm sorry about any recommendation as I'm not affiliated with any of repair shop/ company in UK, I would take the amp to local TV repair shop and ask for an repair estimate which will help you to make decision about this amplifier repair.
