help testing stereo receiver capacitors

Hey, hows it going, I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I have an older model techwood stereo receiver system, when power button is press it powers up then protect pops up on the display screen, I was told that this could be due to faulty capacitors, I need to know how to test a capacitor and locate the correct one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

This problem is not likely

This problem is not likely capacitors.  The most common cause of this "protect mode" is shorted output transistors.  If you hae no electronics experience, I'd suggest you bring the unit to a service tech.  We may be able to tell you the most probable failing parts if you post the exact make and model number.
