    I had that problem because the drum was not turning. Leaky electrolytic capacitors all around the Drum Motor Driver IC801 on the SST board...C810,811,812,813,814,815and 825.

Transmitter Frequency alignment

look I'm going to tell you now. If you have no idea where to measure the voltage then you shouldn't be playing with that radio. First ,you need a scope,a frequency counter,a distortion meter,a signal generator,a watt meter,a voltmeter,a sinad meter and patience. If you have none of these then don't mess with it.

Sony evo 9850 error code 20

From what i've read an Error-20 on a Sony BSP deck is a tape transport problem. Someone with the same error code (on a BSP model) said the actual tape loading mechanism was bad and they had to replace the hardware inside the machine that loads and ejects the cassette.

Codes p0501 p0700 p1753 p1758p0706

vss dead (veh, speed sensor)
A/T 700 codes are transmission errors. so is p17xxx
706 is trans mission range switch open circuited (bad switch or wires)
the scan codes never tell you what part is bad or what to replace.
it tells you ONLY what tests fail. called Monitors.
a Service tech, does this magic,. with tools and meters and gauges and special tests.
you can look up codes here.

you can go to (or get a real honda fsm book)
in the book it covers each code and now to test it and find the truth.
for example they will show you how to find P0501.
by looking at the VSS signal if good, the wires are bad.
if the signal is bad, the sender is bad. using a scope or meter.
good luck to you.

I have a Sony lo-61hs10. The timer/stand by continues to flash. I Need help ?

It may be too old a set to repair, should be a KP=61HS10

Going if not a specific numbered error code be a case of using a scope and a meter to narrow down what the problem is with this model, since most people do not own the Scope, may own a meter and may be able to find the service manual, I would suggest maybe time to retire this set as many parts for it are no longer available, That said if you really want to fix it yourself you are going to have to have some basic skills.

Let me know, I would like to help but the age of this set is against a clean cut repair.,

How to reset to zero a Tasco RF3- 7X20 Scope? I am having prblems centering this scope Thank You

Making sure it is correctly fitted to the rifle, you Bore sight it. Best to put it into a vice using a thick piece of blanket to protect the rifle. Looking through the bore you line it up on an object about 10 to 20 meters away. Then you adjust the scope to fix the crosshairs on that same object. This will get you approximately on target. Depending on what a where you are going to shoot, assuming you are using a rimfire rifle, You then set up a target about 30 to 35 meters away. And adjust your scope to center on this target. That will give you dead aim at 30 meters and again at 90 meters, with only a slight variation in height in the middle.
