Default Re: Bringing a Sony C7 Betamax back to life

Hi all,

I made some progress on both machines. Both power supplies recapped and working, although I've only managed to get one of the clock display working so far. I removed all of the programming buttons as most of them had stuck and I didn't wan't that confusing the timer. I changed the belts on machine 1, it now loads much faster than it did before, but doesn't spin the head drum.

They both power up now, but are in different states of not working! I've listed what each machine does in the photos:

Can anybody advise what I should be checking next? Could the power supplies going bad have damaged one of the control boards?
