Akai 635d reel to reel vu lights only, no other power?
Purchased this unit new while overseas. It was unused for years, then I began using it. It really worked great for long time. The only problem I had was getting past the cheep ampex tapes which really gummed up the heads. I may have encountered a power surge, but recently I went to turn it on, the VU lights lit up as normal, but the there were no power to the rest of the machine. All fuses were tested and were good. Any Thoughts as to what went wrong?
If by chance it blew a connecting capacitor between blocks, is their a source to get these vintage parts for these great machines?
