    I'm afraid my kenwood kr-v6010 audio/ video receiver overheated,
    because it won't turn on. Is there some kind of circuit breaker
    inside? should I take it to a shop to get fixed, or should I throw it
    out?
    thanks

    There will certainly be fuses inside, but as to whether that will be the
    problem or not, we don't really have enough information to venture an
    opinion. Why, for instance, do you feel that it 'overheated' ? If it did,
    and then blew a fuse, then the chances are that the overheating did some
    damage that is now causing fuses to blow. On the other hand, fuses can
    sometimes fail for no apparent reason (although there is one of course, such
    as simple metal fatigue). Most amplifiers also have at least a degree of
    electronic self protection against excess heat conditions. That said, high
    internal ambient temperature, can lead to failure of the thermal fuse in the
    transformer primary. This is not normally a replaceable item, and requires
    that a new transformer is fitted, which may be prohibitively priced.

    You could try looking for fuses, but beyond that, if you don't have any
    experience of repairs to this type of equipment, you probably won't get much
    further. It would have to be worth at least taking it to a repair shop then,
    and paying the small amount to get a repair estimate done before binning it,
    wouldn't it ?
