    M-5000
    Hello,

    I have a 40channel M-5000 and ordered the Automation Kit on eBay from a private seller.
    Unfortunately there was no documentation at all and I'm pretty sure there are some parts missing from the
    control unit.
    I have all the VCA-Faders and PCBs, have the special PCBs for the channels inside the desk which are connected via flat cables (like the ones from old HDD Disks) , the automation panel in the middle and have 4 PCBs for the control (CPU, AD/DA, and 2 other's I can't really tell what they are doing)

    My questions are:
    1. Does anyone have the possibility to give me a documentation what parts are nessacary for the automation (all cables and PCBs and so on) and how they are put together?
    2. Is there anyone who would screw out the main control of his M-5000 and send me some pictures of it and know how it looks like when it's built originally?
    Already tried the support and called a local repair service for that desk but till now no new information.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    I really can not help you on this as I have never come across that mixer in my experience. Maybe the past service manager of Teac could help if he is watching.
