The latest conquest is 410 repair. I have a bunch of belts, which is a good start.
This nice 410 unit ser#10603 won't respond to play. I opened it up, replaced 3 belts- index, FF, and play (the main belt). It does rewind and fast forward, but it won't play.
Actually while I had it open to try to observe something obviously wrong when I push play, it played momentarily, but that was the only sign of play life. I couldn't get it to do it again.
Oddly, the belt kit I bought included play, FF and RW belts, but I can't seem to figure out where the RW belt would go- is that only in certain units or am I missing it?
Any suggestions to resurrect this beast, aside from 'don't bother'?
I have a multimeter and I can solder, although I'm a bit of a hack with both.
