Hello I have a Realistic sta-235b receiver and everything works great except when I try to turn it off it stays on and I have to unplug it?? Can anyone advise? I have limited knowledge of these and I don't want to damage anything. thx in advance
 
On that receiver the on off switch seems to be part of the speaker selector switch which makes repairing it impossible. A good tech might be able to fix the switch but you would be taking a chance paying him to try.
I would suggest you use an external device to turn it on and off.

Much cheaper and will work fine. Old receivers don't have any circuits that need to be kept on standby.
