        Moe, sorry I have been busy today until now. Let me see what it will cost on Monday but we can probably work that out.

      Did you see the schematic I posted in your Pioneer thread?

      Thanks for the kind words and Happy New Year! I have had several of the 7100's recently and the tuning sections worked fine, sorry yours is not. I would guess there is another relay that pulls in to operate the tuner function is not working.
      Without the schematic I would take the cover off and look at the other relays and carefully with the unit powered on feel with your finger or a wooden stick to see which one it is by the clicking sound etc. Something is not staying in contact would be my guess and go from there.

      Wish I could tell you, "oh yeah do this or clean that" but I do not unfortunately.

      It would bug me too if the tuner was not working :) I sold both of them off recently and regret not keeping one of them, they are a great receiver.

      Trouble shooting anything boils down to localize, isolate, repair. Sometimes you have to have things looked at by a pro.

      Good luck with your 7100, they are a nice unit and worth fixing if you like the radio.

      Hello Fairlane,

      I appreciated your post last year regarding cleaning your NAD 7100 speaker relay contacts and it seemed to me that you knew a thing or two about the amp. I also have a NAD 7100. I bought it around 1990 and like it very much.

      The reason I am writing you is about a year ago, for some reason, the tuner section stopped functioning. When I hit the AM or FM button the light goes on for half a second and then goes off. No sound. Nothing. The rest of the amp works perfectly.

      I am not experienced with electronics but I know how to solder, I can check and change a fuse, and I can clean. If you have any idea what I can do to troubleshoot I would really appreciate it. I would really love to get that tuner back working!

      Thanks in advance for any input you might have
