Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Ok, the MXR-130 has four power resistors on the tuner board that get EXTREMELY hot. The power connector for the tuner board is right under those resistors. The heat, constant expansion and contraction, and tarnish from heat may have worked the connector partially loose, or started some corrosion.
If you look through the top of the receiver, you'll see a big board that fills up most of the right side. That's the tuner. At the bottom (or front) left corner of that board, you'll se the resistors and connector. If it's like every other MXR 130 I've seen, it'll be noticeable that the board is quite toasted in that spot.
Cleaning that connector, and making sure it is seated firmly, may solve the problem. If not, let me know.
