Hi all. I have just recently received a Sansui 3000A receiver from my uncle who purchased it while in the service (Vietnam). I don't know exactly where/when he bought it, but he was kind enough to give it to me, complete with a pair of SP-1500's. I'm looking for info/history on this unit that isn't on the panel. The ser# is: 119060618

Also, I'm having trouble with it. About 30-60 seconds after powerup, it goes into "shut-down" mode. Trying to adjust anything on the front panel causes the shut-down instantly. However, for the first 30-60 seconds, it sounds great. Even with a few blown (I think) tweeters. It sat for about 10-15 years without being used, and given its age, could it be bad caps? I would love to get it working, as the amp is pristine. Not even one freakin' scratch!

Many thanks in advance,
Pork Chop
