Default pink triangle DaCapo needing attention


Sadly my belov'd Pink Triangle dacapo has gone technical. "Signal" and "De-emphasis" front panel indicators light on any channel with an input board plugged in, regardless of whether anything is attached, no sound for valid input.

No UK dealers I've spoken to know anyone doing PT repairs, please let me know if you've any ideas. Any thoughts on where the fault lies also appreciated - it's not the filter module or input module as these checked out fine in a PT Ordinal.

Hi Jon,

Sounds like one of the 74HC/AC541 on input "BUS" has failed, the most comman cause being the removel of the input card or digital filter while the unit is power-up.

Time is my worst enemy!
