    Electronics Repair Gurus?

    I have an old receiver that I'd like to have repaired, the tuner was fading out after a few minutes and now nothing at all from it. I'm guessing that it is probably a bad cap. Anybody do electronic repairs, can handle this and willing to do it? I'll pay of course.

    Thanks!

    Did you try pouring a bowl of uncoiled rice inside it yet?

    If you're willing to take the lid off (unplug it first of course) you might look around for a loose wire (cable connector) or circuit card socket.

    I don't know how old your receiver is, but I have ran into this in the past. Sometimes a disconnect and re-seat remediates some problems.

    I'm not saying it is the problem, just a cheap suggestion to start with.

    Good Luck!

    Likely a super quick and cheap fix for someone that knows what to look for.

    HA! Yeah. Didn't think to google up his website. Grabbed that off my book of faces. We are friends with his parents. He has carved out a nice little niche for himself with the vintage and tube-based stuff.

    I've repaired several tvs for people, normally if a capacitor goes bad the top of it will be bulged out or even busted and have black stuff coming out. Replacing one on a circuit board is pretty easy if you know how to use a soldering iron.

    There should be a tube tester at your local Sav-On Drugs or K-Mart stores.
