Getting the RF to work

  • Found two broken traces. This resulted in bsically no output. the video signal can be traced all the way back to IC601.

  • Once all the caps were cleaned on the SV-34, to my final surprise, almost after 8 days of fidding around with it on and off, finally got it working.

  • Changed all caps to ceramic caps and solid polymer caps where appropriate (6.3V, 100uF)

  • It was pleasnt to see this unit working with a Video 8 tape.
