I have a very old 1880 that I bought when they first came out.
I really never turned it off, but I believe everything still works on it.
However, the display is not working or should I say the display is not very bright anymore and gets darker with the contrast knob. It's very difficult to see.
I just recently brought it over to pretty much the only electronics guy left in the area that fixes things anymore.
He's gonna look at it.
I have also heard that the display is backlighted underneath the display (maybe an LED). I was figuring this light could even have a ton of dust on it, or be on its way out.
I have no idea.
It's a pretty cool machine, and I hope it can be fixed, it could even be a capacitor or some voltage source to the light.
I know most home recording folks have moved to Pro Tools, but I just use it to make some home recordings. I'm not gonna buy another recorder and have a subscription to Pro Tools.
I'm not sure what the light source is or the part number of the light source.
Any info or help would be awesome.
I believe the external CD burner still works, but I have not tried it in years.
Thanks in advance
