Hello from Chicago!

Hello, I just found you amazing site. I was researching my recently aquired C-4000 pre amp, M-400 (2x) amps and TX-11 tuner when I came across the site.

I'm just starting out and getting into vintage hifi hobby/lifestyle and need help. The C-4000 doesn't seem to be outputting any signal. When I got the equipement all from the orginal owner, the fuse for the preamp was blown. I replaced the fuse and now can not get the preamp to power up (no lights) or output signal.

What should I look at first to correct the issue?

Thanks in advance. I'm really excited to listen to the system.

Re: Hello from Chicago!

1'st WELCOME!!!! Second, a pre with a blown fuse can be alot of stuff. I would check the interior boards for dark brown spots around the soldier joints. It may be something as simple as a soldier job, or may need refurbishing. Rita's Vintage Audio is the way to go. First class repair and hopes of an autograph by Bob Carver!!!!!
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Re: Hello from Chicago!

Welcome to the Forum.

Give them a little time & some of the more tech oriented members will offer good advice.

I'm less tech oriented so I'll go along with Wayne (Kingman) & say if all else fails send it to Rita.

It will come back like new & maybe have Bob's signature.
