:mrgreen: Good evening! I'm so happy to be here! I'm a reborn audiophile who in his military days was an absolute fanatic. When I returned stateside, I lost some of my high end equipment in a house fire. Although insurers paid for it all, the stateside availability was truly awful. I gave up for some years, and now I'm back. I've managed to rebuild a new audio system that is truly worthy(in my humble opinion). I've added two vintage reel to reel tape decks. One is an Akai GX 255. The other a Sony TC 366. I can't seem to get any sound from the Sony though. It's connected properly but no output whatsoever, even at the headphone connection. Nothing(including light)comes from the VU meters either. Anywho, can someone point me to the right place on the board? PS: I'd be happy to share my knowledge also.
Thanks and Be Blessed
Chopkins

It's turning (motor/tape), but no light or sound?

If nothing is happening then the unit is telling you that it is not receiving primary ac power or not processing the ac in the power supply. Check the plug and ac cable, and primary fuse (s). If all good then the on/off switch is next. If that's good then the power supply is next. You may be limited to things on the outside of the cabinet. The good news is that the power supply is common to all functions and circuits so just a fuse might be all that's failed. Check what you can and refer the machine to a technician if no progress.

You guys are going to think this is a bizarre coincidence, but I'm actually Svengali.

For some reason, I cannot edit my posts. Did something change?
