well this is the problem.


this unit has a 2200uf capacitor and a 220uf capacitor on the 6v line that swells, these caps are blown, the location is cp150 for the 2200uf and the other is right next to it, if they are swollen replace and you will be fine. Also check this site for ribbon cables make sure they are in the connector securely, my trick is to pull them out, and with a dental pick push on the metal connectors, so when you insert again it is tight, if the connector looks bowed this is the problem secure by pulling and replacing. Also look with a magnifier I have found corroded connectors, only do this if the caps are ok.

Well Good luck friend, and if my efforts are appreciated, feedback and a bonus will be appreciated
