Akai AM-M830 with low output volume
I have been given one of these by a friend to see if I can fix. I have downloaded the service manual from this site and will be printing that out on Monday when I am back at work.
I was just after some pointers to give me a head start. The unit (along with all its ribbon cabled ancillaries) powers up ok, but when playing a source through it you can only hear sound when you turn the volume knob up to max and then all you can hear is reminiscent of sitting next to someone on the bus listening to music on headphones.
Any advice greatly received.
