Well, my AC-F1UB unit, part of my Sony SL-F1UB Betamax kit, is not charging batteries any more, it still works as a PSU for the VCR, but, without the charging side, it's pretty much useless, cos to charge batteries, I have to dig out the Tuner/Timer unit, use THAT as the PSU, and use that as the charger (but with the battery in the VCR unit)... :rolleyes:

Soooo, any ideas what to look for? It's very tightly packed into the case, so overheating and thus possibly the transformer has an open winding in it, or maybe a solder joint has cracked, but, it's all guesswork cos I have no experience in fiddling inside this sort of equipment... :(

Thanks in advance... :)

You have a Volt-meter or a digital meter ?

Think You need one in this hunt for the PU´s problem

Start to check the voltage in the charging area and see if there is a problem
there, if not just follow the leads and see if You have a fuse or something like that. Usung the volt meter on Your way to the real problem.

But You must open it up to see all leads and fuses.
