TEAC X-1000R

I've just powered up my deck after several years of not using it.
I got several seconds when the lights flickered and then the counter and control panel lights went out.
The VU meters are still alight and the needles jump at power on.

I thought at first that there must be a dry joint on a PCB so I stripped the deck down but haven't been able to find anything and I can't see any burn marks.

I read the service manual looking for the power connectors for each board but couldn't work out where they are.

Does anybody have any good ideas where to start looking for the problem?

check the power supply to be sure all the voltages are up and running.
