Question about Technics Audio Players & Recorders
Identify the main area on the pc board, and look around for a odd shaped Electrolytic capacitor. It might even have odd printed board number IE: mc500, not c500, for example.
If you find one it could be a Memory Retention Capacitor. They often have a low value 0.22uf and low voltage 5.6 for instance. It could have failed and so not supply the chip that stores the information, with power when switched off.
I can't say it will have one, but it's worth a try. They are in the Maplin catalogue for under £5!
