Default changed pwr supply etc.

Hi again
I had an adjustable regulator that I had hard wired. It was in a tight space and some of the wires touched putting out too high a voltage. The transformer I was using also had higher secondaries than required and so the problem was waiting to happen. It still read the toc and played discs but I could not get anything out of the dig out.
I should have added your question for clarity but I don't know how, sorry!
There seems to be two piles, those that work, eventually, and those that we were not careful enough with.
Regards

Did you check the transistor in the regulator circuit coming out of the driver chip. It is part of the on chip regulator that converts the 8 volts down to 5 volts. If the disc is moving, it may just be that the 5 volts is not working.

THANK YOU JAMES.....

The ALWSR replaces the LM7808 shown on the diagram on the first page of this thread.
