I have a stock basic AM/FM with Cassette, no EQ. The right channel is out. Does anyone know if there’s a replacement chip available? Looking for the IC number. Or if someone has an amplifier board laying around, I could use it. Thanks, Rich

I can't imagine it's worth fixing.

Back in my car audio days, if a channel died, or accidentally got 12V shot to it so a customer could save money... It went straight into the trash can.

Even after all these years, I can't imagine a plain cassette deck is worth fixing. (still might be worth saving just in case it's worth something 30 years from now)

If I can’t find the chip, then ur right. It’s in nice shape and the cassette deck works. Takes less than 30 min to replace the IC, if I can find a new one.

^^^^^^^^ yes, GaryK; Tony, barlosal@aol.com (because it's a cassette deck); and Craig Kettner (ccc87gn@yahoo.com). Craig works on the units with CD players. Both Tony and Craig collect and swap parts with each other all the time. From these three, you'll find what you're looking for.

Vinyl has been making a comeback so maybe the DAT will too. MAYBE.

In that case, when GNs become a hipster thing, cassette decks might be worth fixing.


(and I still have all my parents old 70's vinyl, and a crate of DJ stuff from when I owned a nightclub)
