re: GX-230

Thank you for the manuals! Are very useful. I have a vintage reel tape (GX-230D) and I look for a platin for the switchs on the left side (Eaualizer P. C. Board MY5014). It fails! I only have the three switches but I don`t know how to conjunct the free cables without the failing platine. Does someboddy have such platine or a very damaged AKAI GX 230 D which contains this platine?
I would be very happy if I could reanimate this wonderful machine.
