    Hi i have the one I bought back in 1985 and want to get going but the head phone jacks are missing? Anyone have schematics for it? or how I hook them back up?

    I also have 40 tapes of song idea's. What other unit can play the tapes on if i can't get this one going?

    thanks..

    The headphone jacks are sometimes hard to source due to the size and mounting. That goes not matter as you can put the line outs into another device and use the headphone jack from that.
    There may be solutions for putting them back but original parts might not be that easy to get so a sub might have to be done. I have seen some units come in with a cable and an inline 3 conductor 1/4" jack at the end. Usually I know what they did.
    Getting a new jack installed might require a technician as it in some models is more complicated.
