Default Re: Circuit diagram etc for panasonic VCR

I don't, but ageing / failure of a small electrolytic placed very close to one of the heatsinks in the PSU unit is a common problem in some Panasonics.

It's in the SMPSU startup circuit, so the fault often manifests itself as failure to come back on after a power interruption even though it had been running - sometimes for years - before the power went off.

Not being familiar with this exact model, I can't say whether it's one of the ones which is prone to this problem.
