Default Missing +8v ??

Hi everyone, I hope this post is still aliveÖ.
I have carefully read every post on this forum, but have not yet found the answer to get my system running again, so all trouble-shooting ideas and assistance is truly appreciated!
For clear identification, my system is as follows:-
PID R549, Spring Clips.
Symptoms:
After running at normal output for about an hour, the system suddenly died. No display or lights on the Pod. Fuse O.K., no obvious Ďburn-outí of components or dodgy soldered joints anywhere, but no usual Ďthumpí when switching on or off at the mains switch of rear of SW.
Initially I took the easy way out by buying the ebay Replacement Control Pod, but found this only gave me sound through the centre speaker only, no matter whether it was fully connected to my computersí 6ch sound card, or just on stereo through my iphone (trying each of the 3 Jacks for good measure). No good, just centre speaker onlyÖ.
So I took a look into the SW electronics and found the following:-
Preamp Board (taller version, with Sub D Input and speaker output soldered wire connections along the top):
WA119 (thick black): Ground Pin13
WA125 (thin black): -18.3v Pin15
WA124 (red/black): +17.92v Pin14
WA126 (thin red): +0.64v Pin 10
[The preamp board has 5 x ICís: 4 x R45801; 1 x HCT139]
Bridge Rectifiers (2 x KBPC1502): 35v from transformer
Main Board: Voltage Regulators: (U8): 78M18A & (U9): 79M18A
Problem:
Maybe Iím barking up the wrong tree, but my reading into this gives me the strong impression that all is not well without the +8v on Pin 10 (perhaps needed to fire up the Pod?), yet the voltage regulators are correctly giving me +/- 18v.
I have seen several posts throughout the history of this forum topic [#9 (Mause); #398 (Spacies); #499 & 545 (Casdit)], but havenít yet found the answer to the Ďmissing +8ví.
Can anyone offer any tips on what to check/measure? Iím fairly handy with my multimeter, which can also check diodes, but not skilled with ICís other than installation/soldering.
Thanks in advance for all,
Steve

Hey folks,

I have a pretty old Z-5500 set that I've had in storage for the last 5+ years or so due to a defunct control pod unit. When it originally went out I scoured the internet for information on how to remedy the situation, but was not able to find a good solution or maybe there just was not enough effort on my part.

Long story short- I currently have a decent 2.0 system for my PC and I just want to use the Z-5500 subwoofer in the mix. I will continue to look over this thread (huge), but does anyone have a fairly simple or straightforward solution to this? I am willing to crack open the sub, but I am not too great at soldering. I am very willing to give this a shot though as I believe there is nothing wrong with the subwoofer (fuse, etc.).

Thanks!
