a few days ago I got this boombox from Sony, apparently a Japanese one. It's my first one and it's called "Tryzee FX-400".
The problem is, I can't find anything about it on the internet, apart from some pictures. No service manual, nothing. It obviously needs some work. The handle is broken off and the tape drive probably needs a new belt, since I can only hear the motor spinning up. Also, the record button on the tape drive is just flapping around in the breeze.
Apart from that, it works just fine. The radio runs, I can hook my phone up via Line In and even the VU meters are really responsive.
The biggest issue is the TV not doing anything at all. It's hooked up via 12V instead of the Japanese 100V because I don't have a converter, but I guess the TV should still work...right? :o
If anyone knows how to get a manual or has some experience with devices like this, please help! ;)
Here's a little video where I test it out:
