Default Radio possibly broken? need help!

Ok, so yesterday I enter my car, turn on my radio, and hmm.... my front two speakers arent working. So it shut of the unit, and power up again, play with the volume, and again, nothing. My rear door, rear deck, and front panel speaker are working.

Today I open up my unit, and i think 2 transitors are blown.

Do you guys think this can be repaired? I really dont have the money to buy an aftermarket HU nor the time.

Take a look... (notice the two transitors on the top, the white stuff that leaked out isnt supposed to be there i think)
The last time I fried a transistor it leaked like that too


Thanks :/

Did the speakers change at all when you played with the volume ****?Those radios are known for the volume **** going bad and they act funny.

yeah, i ve been getting static on the volume, when i turn it up sometimes it makes the staticy sound, and sometimes i the whole right side of the sound goes out, and i have to play with the **** and it comes back again.

something now is definitely messed up cuz however much i play with it the front speakers will not play.

just for reference, im using stock wiring (not amp powered). my 2 fronts are infinity 2-way reference speakers, 2 rear decks are stock, 2 rear doors are pioneer ts-163p.

thanks.

Definitely sounds like your volume ****.You can try some of the electronic cleaner spray into the volume **** and see what happens if not you will need to find another radio.

When I bought my 850 last year, mine did the same thing. Unfortunately, I had to replace the radio.
