When I see something like this I try Ebay and see if I can find working models to replace it with. What you find is that service manuals are rarely found and the cost to repair is usually more than replacement.
So that's what I do in such cases.
Hello to All,
Need your assistance with this problem.
I have this machine, answering machine with old cassette system for recording voice messages.
Once power is on, following happens:
Cassette recording system starts to record, then stops, back on again, stops one more time, and then rewind starts until the tape reach uts end. The motor under is still running all the the time.
No tone from headset, and phone wall jack is connected. Buttons on the base make no diffrence when pressed. One of the transistors, on the left side of the MB, nears power supply, with heatsink is HOT, very HOT all the time.
Full name of the machine: LOGIC A-TEL 1
Link to similar machine under. Also pics of device inside and outside.
Thanks a lot in advance.
