Repair - Sony NAS-V7M
I found this baby lost and abandonned in the trash. Again, in Japan things are sorted, it's a separate box : I don't go diving in a see of garbage and used diapers to fetch these things. Anyway, since my wife needed something like that I brought it home. Let's try to fix it !
Feeding it the AC power : standby led turns red, the right hand display has the retro-lightning turning on (or so), and you can hear the device emit a hit pitched faint hiss (regulator screaming for help?)
Hitting the On/Off switch does nothing, like all the other buttons.
First hypothesis : maybe power issue on the secondary or a dead cap (please make it a dead cap, my ESR meter arrived today in the mail, and it's easy to fix). Only solution, the operating room !
UPDATE: (later that night) after opening the baby, which was not that easy I can finally access the insides. And after searching on the net, apparently Sony did a little mistake with those speakers : there's a problem with the power IC and seems that after some times the machine just refuses to turn on. Hum ... seems pretty close of my problem. https://www.sony.jp/system-stereo/info/20120308.html
Finally, I couldn't fix it, changed job, let it for the bench for 6 months and when I started working electronics back I had no idea where I had left it so... it ended up in the garbage, a bit lighter with a few parts missing.
