Remember as a kid when you put your tongue on a 9-Volt battery.... Yup, just like that.
Rookie. I moved up to 12 volt car batteries with step up transformers before I was 13. 9 volts just well, just didn't cut it after a few years.
That's all there is to it. Woo Hoo. I'm off to fix my HK AVR 85.

Durn it Dale. Y'all take the fun out of things. But I was thinking left finger and right finger - get that shock all the way through yo body. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzztttttttt ya!
Just kidding. Don't try any of this at home kids. No matter how much fun we might tell you it is. Leave capacitor discharging to somebody that knows what they're doing. If ya don't know how to safely do it hire a professional. Or find a good hobbyist who might do it for too little.
Where y'all live again Dale? Looked kind of far. HK does provide detailed service manuals. I do need to learn the basics so I don't shock the bejeezus out of myself or blow up what I think is still a good receiver.
I have a Nakamichi Music Bank CD Player 3 I use as my desktop CD player at work and I'm pretty sure the headphone amp sounded noisy when I first tried it but only for a few minutes but I'm wondering if the crazy strong headphone amp has to warm up a bit? Maybe needs some new caps or something. Maybe just sounded hissy as I had it turned up stupid loud. not thinking the headphone amp was so STRONG. The door sticks on first opening but is fine after that. Probably needs a new belt. Complete 4 belt replacements I think $25 but if only the door an o ring of the correct size should work fine. I have a service manual and found out some good info by googlling. Still have not found a users manual. Go figure. I'm sure I can buy one but can often find for free. Also no remote.
