Default Problem with sound

I have a 1978 Zenith Allegro stereo. Never had a problem till today. Turned it on and I have zero loudness yet I am getting power to the unit. I don't know anything about the old stereos so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mayo

Don't you think it has earned a nice long sleep?

This is how it starts. Loudness. Than blindness. Than..one day, you just realize that this is it, the moment has came truth.

When was the allegro born? 1982 or so if not earlier?

After so many years of service, it will surely have broken solder issues. I don't recommends you to resolder it as on opening the unit, you will be scared to go further seeing the nest of wires. Not for a beginner and a faint hearted. Make a mistake, break a wire...all goes in vain.

1978 Sprags. I got it working. Someone was monkeying with it and pushed the speaker button into the external mode. Being that I don't have any hooked up, there was no sound, obviously. Glad it was something simple.

Did that 'someone' have to go back in their cage with no bedtime banana treat?
