Hello Everyone, I am from lebanon and we have electricity of 220V, the Sankyo Sound 600 was plugged into power with 110v configuration. it turned on for seconds then off forever. Do u have any instructions on how to troubleshoot and fix? thank you everyone.

I don't know this machine, but as a general rule I'd start with any internal fuses and hoe that they have blown fast and protected the rest of the electric/electronics.

Here is a photo with the back off. There do not seem to be any fuses.
If not, there could be serious trouble like burning out the transformer.
Take the back off and have a look to see if anything has burnt out.

Maybe there are fuses on the back side of the power board? I would take it off and have a look.

A fan of 8mm movies since the mid 1960s and still as keen as ever!

There are no fuses on the back or front side of the power board. On the back is a heat shield and a power transistor that probably blew along with other components when over loaded. I recommend you take a look at my thread where I repaired my Sankyo 600 of multiple issues. It will give you some direction on how to troubleshoot.


I recommend you get out your multimeter and start testing. [Smile]

Good luck!
