Most of the big Japanese brands have outsourced to the cheapest production
facilities they could find - My Hitachi DAB/CD etc was a no name Chinese
job, and Hitachi didn't even know if any service info ever existed.

Some time ago I used the FCC number on a product to find the
manufacturer. See
Whether that still gives the manufacturer of the final product I am no
longer sure.

There were lots of screws, so I started by peering through the vents with a
flashlight - and just happened to spot a bulged electrolytic.

You can sometimes find these with your nose - switch off first!
