Hi there.
I have a PR603M with amplifier issues. I've had it repaired three times, but each time it works well for a couple of weeks and then the original problem returns. Just wondering if by some miracle someone has an amp board that will fit (possib…

Re: Need help to reinitialise my KN6000+EW65NX - looking for OS 7.1

Re: PR903 not starting

So following a tip I got, I reflowed all the larger chips whilst applying pressure to their top. This definitely helped, as I got the thing working perfectly, but only for about 20 minutes... then it started making noises instead of sound, then finally cr…

Re: PR903 not starting

Thanks for the info, though I don't think there's a fault like that here, it came from a warm home, so luckily there's no corrosion whatsoever on the connectors, and even the backup cap has been replaced at one point, the previous owner clearly cared for …

Re: PR903 not starting

Re: PR903 not starting

Just to update, yes this is indeed an SMD problem. Since it was not booting intermittently I was fairly certain I had a problem with an actual chip and not delaminating chips, but once I got the board out and flexed it lightly, It was now warm, so I notic…

Re: PR903 not starting

So after reading through the service manual, I actually have more questions. Though I'm a service tech, I never dealt with the CPU side of any of my Technics instruments before (okay a PX103 but patching up corroded tracks ain't anything special).

Check the Control panel Sound menu Recording and make sure the Green check is next to the Panasonic Instrument and not the Microphone.
You can select the Microphone and disable it as well (temporarily) to be sure.
Or you can mute the microphone.
