HP 82161A Digital Casette Drive


Does anybody have diagrams or hints on what to check when this unit does not work?

The unit seems to power up but the LEDs don't come on. I do not see any obvious faults in the circutry (no corrossion, etc).





replace the battery;-)

The unit won't work with a dead battery.



Sorry I did not post the obvious. The battery is newly rebuilt and fully charged. I have another units that works fine (with the same battery).
