Thanks for your reply
I am an experienced technician, I simply do not have diagrams on all the junk that comes out !
This the most common problem with us all here, all we are hoping for is someone who has had the chance to troubleshoot this set along with a diagram so that we could be steered in the right direction. I have no problem decyphering diagram but they are hard to get.
I can't decypher where the video portion comesfrom / goes with these doublesided board with components on both sides. Just like any good technician, I had had the chance to troubleshoot ione of these with a diagram then I would be somewhat familiar with where the signals come from / goes to.
Forget the cervice centre idea, these machine are not worth wasting time/energy to bring to a service centre to be told that it will be around $120.00 CDN, just not worth that much. I don't understand why someone would send it to a repair depot at these prices when the price of repair gets close to 40% of the original value (nevermind the now value).
I do not get video from the tuner or the VCR but do get the channel number when using tuner
