Hi, the stereo with the integral cassette and remote CD, after it was unused for four weeks or so I now get an issue with the player. When powered on the controls freeze and there is no sound. The sound sometimes suddenly comes on to about half power in increments (itself without me touching the volume). Then in the same fashion it decreases the sound to zero then freezes again. Any thoughts?
Do you

Hello,

Yes it sounds like the stereo is going bad. What happens is there are many solider joints in the radio and they can cause a bad connection. You may be able to take the radio out and take it apart to look for a partially connected wire or solider joint to repair it.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
