Nothing comes on screen at all,also,sometimes a lot of mumbo jumbo [like chinese writing comes up and flashes]
But when tried again its ok again,any ideas please,Dave.
Theres a very good chance that some of the capacitors have within the contol box assembly need replacing, its not uncommon with any electrical equipment thats been standing unused for that period of time.
The capacitors them selfs go leaky after a period of time if not been regulary charged, the fact you have now switched it on could well may of damaged other components.
Using hind site if you had stept the voltage from low to full working voltage over 2-3 hours when you first turned it on you my have got away with it .
I only know this because im a time served radio/tv engineer, and i used to collect old radios that hadnt been used for years, if customers had tryed them before i had them, thats when the damage was done.
If your interested in selling it for spares let me know, [email protected]
