HI FI Repair
#1
I have a circa 1990's Phillips FR980 Reciever that blowed up on me:

It appears to me these capacitors have leaked, due to the brown goo at the bottom of them:

Anyone have expertise in this area? Or perhaps you know someone who has?

That should just be adhesive, although it is a little discolored from heat. They use that to keep large devices in place so they don't breaking the solder joint. Chokes and toroids usually have silicone instead. Usually the caps will bulge or split open at the top and leak an oily substance, that's if they don't pop all together. They can also dry out and fail.

did it smoke?
does it power up but no sound?
does it not power up at all?

also that is glue to hold the Caps in plase so they don't brake the solder joint.

It sounds like there is emotional attachment to the unit. However, it may be time to pull the plug on it due to the cost of repair. I finally had to get rid of an old 1975 Pioneer 1010 several years ago because the pots were no longer available (and I'd rebuilt the power section and recapped it twice). If you want to have it repaired there are several vintage repair services offered on ebay. They due tend to cater to 70s brands like Pioneer. Good luck with the search. Chuck

I have 3 of these. Bought the first new, the 2nd and 3rd used. This is one of the used ones.

In regards to how it broke, I was using it for sound for the TV. 5-10 watts per channel tops. But, it was running hot...not warm but hot. Then, one day I just turned it on, the display was goofy, and no sound.

I did go through all the inputs and outputs externally without any luck. It is no longer hot, but it is warm. Speaker relays work, so that isn't an issue.

As far as emotional attachments, I can assure you I would spend $1k in a heartbeat on an amp/receiver if I could find one I liked. As a teen I couldn't wait to grow old so I would have the resources to walk into the HIFI store, pick out the prettiest, meanest receiver and lay down the cash in exchange for sweet sounding AC/DC.

But, frankly, I have been to many a HIFI store, and everything I see sucks. Maybe I am spoiled about being able to press a button and go right to my source or right to my output, and having all my settings show on the display at once.

To conclude, I am not emotionally attached. I just don't see anything worth buying. I am open to suggestions. FWIW, Pioneer-No, Marantz-No, HK-No, Kenwood-No, Onkyo-No.

Back in the 90's when I worked at Radio Shack I bought all of the Rack Components "Optimus Pro series" that was made by Pioneer 540W X4 and surround sound, I would hate to loose it, I love the sound quality and the features it has.

At least you're not picky. Wire a Blaupunkt car stereo into your home system.

Actually, for the garage I have a nice compact Pioneer hooked up to my spare batteries, hooked up to my trickle charger.

If it wasn't for all the space the batteries take up, or all the space and heat a 12VDC power supply and external amp would need to put out some watts, I would absolutely pick out a nice double din auto HIFI. Maybe I can mount that power supply on the wall.
