Hey all, as the topic reads, I am new to owning a vintage radio. I just purchased a Magnavox. It does not specifiy the model, so after some digging I believe it is a three way 1974 Astro Sonic. It doesn't seem to get power, I am thinking it is either the amp or the fuse. I cannot remove the fuse and I am afraid I will break the holders. Can anyone help?

Please post a few pictures of the radio, INSIDE and OUT. Many times we can recognize it from the innards quicker than seeing the outside.

I know that sounds strange, but many times I'm more familiar with the circuit board than the entire radio.

Sometimes you'll also see the same circuit board being used in different models and under different labels.

Yeah, it's crazy,
Mitch

Did some research and came up with this from http://magnavoxhistory.com/showcase/page/5/
Compare this to your photo. It's close but not an exact match.
