I have an old receiver and I think some of the terminals are broken. Is there a way to test if the terminals are broken with a multimeter? Like to see if a connection is being made?

I think the best test would be to hook up a speaker,...and listen. Start with a low volume setting! smile.gif

yep... get the meter, pop the "lid" on the receiver and check for continuity between the inside contact of a give connector and the contact on the outside. No continuity, no good... :-) OF course, you do this with the power OFF and UNPLUGGED. Basic electronics testing.

If those leads are broke is there any way to fix them? Would it most likely be the soldering that broke?
