Okay, I think the problem is mechanical. I’ve setup the system in such a way that the power is all external. When I press play the left reel spins but the right one does not (see image). This would put undue stress on the lowly BC547 causing it to burn. Likely as a protection for the BD435.

8500 deck

Now my question is: how the hell do I dismantle this deck? Is there anything in the way of a ‘tutorial’? It doesn’t seem to be all that easy and mucking around in B&O decks is a sure way to never having a working deck again.

Many thanks!
