    i pulled a phillips aj6110 radio/cd player out of the dumpster. when i plug it in sometimes it turns on and works perfectly. sometimes ill plug it in and it will be completely dead. when it does work i can hear the relay click on when i power it up. no click when dead. wondering if someone could give advice? ive done this on a tv once and worked, i removed the relay and put a jumper across where the relay contacts would be. just looking for some advice. THank you! - lokey

    do you think its just a power supply issue? or would it be deeper in the circuitry?

    Your pictures are nearly worthless. If you can make a clear, well lit picture of both sides of the power supply then maybe.

    Many intermittents can be found by visual inspection and light pressure from an insulated probe (poking with a stick).
