It's more likely to be a fuse that's gone. If so it could be caused by faulty device on the heat sink.
The only device that converts power is a Transformer. You can test this by simply putting a Volt meter on it's terminals. They are not hard to fit, however they have to be replaced by the same thing or one approved by Rotel.

Check the rest of the power supply, for example the transformer if there is no power at all. If you are getting some indication of power, check the voltage regulator circuit.

Before we throw in the towel, turn it off and exercise every control a lot of times throughout its range, particularly the Tape Selectors. Sometimes oxides will develop on seldom used controls and their 'normally closed' contacts will not pass a signal.

Rotel processor bypass for Audio Research SP10


If I understand you, the 'sound' of the AR preamp is what you're trying to preserve. Presumably you're just running a phono through it as nothing else needs a preamp these days.

The multichannel inputs bypass all of the Rotel's processing except the volume. Use the Front L and R.

Rotel POWER AMPLIFIERS parts RB 870. The ON/OFF switch is broken - it will not turn off the amp. I have to pull the plug to turn it off. Where can I get a replacement part.


Power switches generally have to replaced by the same thing, due to safety standards.
I don't know if any of these firms stock Rotel parts, but you can give them a try. They are all online electronic spare part stockists: CPC, SEME, Willow Vale.
Two more appear to be trade only: Charles Hyde and Son, and Wizard.
Failing them contact Rotel, they might have the part or suggest the place to go.

I have a rotel RA - 820B x 3, that has stopped working.


Hi Nell. It is serious. Unless you are technically inclined, it needs to be checked out by qualified person. It will be fairly expensive to repair. Get an estimate.
Thanks

Rotel PReamp, Can I directly Connect my powered speakers to the output


Hi,

Based on your post, the pre-amp is doing its job. What might be the mismatch would be the powered speaker system plugged into the output of the Rotel. Depending on what the "powered speaker system" is, it might be that it is a low impedance such as those used in computers whereas the Rotel requires high impedance to be connected to its output. What could be tried is to connect a regular amp or receiver to the Rotel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
