Question about Sony TC-WE305 Single Cassette Deck
Have 2 of these units with left channels that dont work. Verified power supply good but beyond that I am not an electronics person. Vu meter never moves with output or input or switches in source or tape. Same problem whether connected to amp or earphones.
Follow the left channel lead to where it joins with the PCB. Use a pointed tool and prod connections if you get a buzz then that stage in the amp is working. I suspect you will find it leads to a IC that might cause the fault. If you find it buzzers on the right but not left, then it's gone. PS don't short pins. If you can get hold of a signal injector it will make things easy.
Be careful and good luck.
