I had the same problem about 20 years ago, I bought my system in 1973 and still going strong. The on/off switch is actually at the back of the unit and behind the green button is a long piece of wooden doweling that runs the length of the chasse to the switch. Strangest thing to see this solution when you consider the fine engineering of the Regie 510. As I recall the switch was something simple and I bought it at a local electrical supply place, soldered it in and have not had a problem since.

Cheers, Ted

Why do I have sound when I turn on my dvd and not when it is just the tv?

Where does the sound come from ? Is it a type of Amplifier with speakers connected to it ? Suspect audio cables go from DVD player to HI FI Amplifier. You may need to feed Audio cables from TV Audio Out into a audio switch box with DVD audio cables and manually switch inputs into amplifier. You might just need cables on TV audio out into Amplifier ?

No base in one speaker

Usually this is because the base driver in your speaker is shot. I have repaired hundreds of amplifiers and have never found just the BASS being low at the output of the amp. If the amp is working, then the likelyhood of the speaker being defective is good. A quick test is to just swap speakers and see if the problem moves to the other channel.

If you have a very old transistorized amplifier, you may have a large value coupling capacitor between the actual amplifier circuitry and the speaker output. This is because the older amps had a large DC voltage at the output of the amplifier and this had to be removed or the speaker would be damaged. This capacitor may have finally given up the ghost and needs replacing. While you are at it, you may as well replace both as the other is soon to go.

My bet is that the woofer in the speaker cabinet has blown.

I need a new Braun Supervolume Twist hairdryer because I like the long diffuser. Can I still get one please?

My wife has had 2 Braun Silencios PSK 1200 B's for almost 30 years - Yes about 30 YEARS!!!! I take it apart and clean irregularly and in fact I have just given it a clean and a service today and it runs perfectly. But surely it must give up the ghost sooner (sadly) rather than later. There must be someone out there who has an old one they would be pleased to sell? Sorry I realise this is not an answer to the problem. However I guess that Braun would not reepeat manufacturing this product as surely there cannot be much profit in a hairdryer which could have an active life of up to (or more tha 30 years AND is used every single day without exception!!!!

1993 ford taurus


Would you be aware if there is a pre-installed external amplifier attached to the old head unit?

If yes, the speakers are connected to the amp and not to the new CD player. There should be a pair of shielded wire with RCA male connectors that should go to the head unit and the other ends would be attached to the amplifier. Additionally, there is a trigger wire from the head unit that switches the power of the amplifier to ON aside from the power B+12 and GND.

If no, on the Ford pls verify that:
Green/Yellow - always on B+12VDC (positive battery terminal)
Yellow/Black - switchable +12 (ACC terminal of your IGN switch)
Black/Light Green - chassis ground
Orange/Blue - remote trigger on for power antenna or external amplifier(s)
Light Blue/Red - park light

Orange/Light Green LF+
Light Blue/White LF-
White/Light Green RF+
Dark Green/Red RF -

Pink/Light Green LR+
Dark Blue/Orange LR-
Pink/Light Blue RR+
Light Brown/Red RR-
(R-right, L-left, F-front,RR-right rear)

On the head unit, often, the yellow normally goes to the always on B+12 such as the + terminal of the battery, the red to a switched B+ such as the ACC of the IGN switch and of course the black to the chassis/ground.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi-Fi Amplifier

OK......if you dont know "where to locate on the amp circuit board"....then you shouldn't be attempting to repair it yourself.

If you should accidentally short 2 solder pads together with a meter lead, you WILL cause very expensive damage to the amp.

The smoke you will smell will be coming from the amp and your wallet.

I would strongly suggest that you take it to a repair shop. Diagnosing and troubleshooting an amplifier is best left to the seasoned pro's. Not because I am bragging, it is because they are a complex thing, and there are no moving parts to watch and let your brain " figure it out ". It never changes the look, whether it is idling or running all out. You must understand transistor theory and implimentation.

As far as crackling and sputtering, it sounds like you have a pre driver problem, or a biasing issue. Neither of which should be too terribly expensive to fix, unless the amp is really old, ( +25 years ) then all the transistors become suspect, because, contrary to popular belief, they don't last forever.

Best of luck....Rob

Toshiba CRT

Hi Keith,

Your Hi-Fi is designed to produce many watts of audio power. It would be a fair assumption that you took out the output section of the audio amplifier of the CRT.

The best way to accomplish sharing the speakers between the CRT and Hi-Fi would have been to use a switch box, that way both audio sources would be isolated from each other and whatever source was not being used would be put into a dummy load.

You need to find the Part number of the damaged part. If you open the CRT (power unplugged) you will probably be able to find it with your nose, since it was damaged and burned up.

Call MCM Electronics with the part number and see if they can cross reference a replacement for you.

Good Luck,
- Jim
