Hi,I have a panasonic SA-PT470. Had it for probably 5 years. I can get no power to it. I took off the top and replaced the fuse by the power input, but no joy. I am not electronically clever.
Is there anything I can do to resolve it?CheersViv

Hi Viv,

Have you tried replacing the fuse in the plug and using a different mains lead?

If that doesn't work, with the unit unplugged from the mains power and the top off, do you see any capacitors (tall cylindrical components) that look like they are bulging or have opened at the top? If so they may need replacing.

Hope that helps.

Best Regards,
