Default Sony SAVA-700

Hey!
A few weeks ago I decided to set up a 5.1 sound system in my room to listen to when I'm on the computer, and for that I used my Sony SAVA-700 that had been w/o being used for a long period of time (years).

Everything seemed to work just fine, and they sure sound absurdly good, never thought I would ever think that my Logitech X-230 sound like crap, but then again, it's almost incomparable. Anyway, a couple of days ago, while listening to some music, the front speakers stopped from reproducing any sound, well actually the bass/lows was still there (the lower part of the front speakers kept working) but the higher part from where all highs and mids come out wouldn't work. Quite weird I thought, and trying to jump a bit, I did test everything I could, all the simple things I guess... Checked connections, everything really. So the only way I could get them working again would be to unplug them, wait a while, and plug them back in again, everything would work just fine like it should, but it kept with doing the same thing from time to time.

Since it happens after a while of being on, the only thing I can think of is overheat! Which is weird because when I put my hand behind the main speaker (front left) right in front of the fan, that's cooling it down, I can barely feel any heat, which is the opposite of before, I clearly remember it to produce some heat when I first set it up on my room.

I decided to dismount the speaker (just those backplates where the connections are and the 'grid' in front of the speakers), and I have small knowingness about electronic and everything seems just fine in my eyes.

I was hoping to get some help here, anything that could help me find the source of the problem or even fix it, it's not a good time to spend some money on fixing this, and even harder to find some place where they would, since it's such an old sound system.

Thanks in advance!

Small update:
It's definitely a component that is damaged and overheating (been testing for a couple of hours now), I just can't find the culprit as I don't want to dismount the whole thing because I would probably ruin something else (lack of experience). Going drop the system in a repair store that I found nearby sometime this week. But I would still appreciate any help, that would avoid the trip to the store.

Forgot to update it:
I received my speakers back from the repairing store, earlier this week, and cost me 53€; apparently some electronic malfunction (no need to be a genius to know that), but didn't ask for details as far as the problem would go, maybe I should have had since the point of this thread now falls apart.

Since everything is resolved for now, and I'm happy to be listening to these speakers again, some admin/moderator can delete this thread if they want.

Sorry for the late response. I guess I can do that one of these days, I'll let you know.
