I have for repair a Panasonic Model SA-HC7 "Compact Stereo System"
The power section has failed...the internal fuse is still intact.
Is it worth exploring further ? and is there a standard problem with this model ?

Hi Alwyne,

Is this a SC-HC7?

There aren't any known power supply issues with this model, however a component on the power supply circuitry may have failed - perhaps one of the electrolytic capacitors.

Will you be testing at component level?

Hi Pete......I confirm the Model No. SA - HC7 I am able to check at component level but I first needed to know if there was a
known power stage problem with this model as it is a devil of a thing to dismantle completely.
It seems as I will have to do this. Thanks for your response. The customer is agreeable to call it a day but it seems a shame
not to have a go with such a beautifully made item. Regards Alwyne
