Is there anyone out there that could tell me what could be a fix for this box? FM and the cassette both come in on one channel, while AM and line- in both come in in stereo. Any input would be awesome!

Apply contact cleaner to the AM/FM/Radio/Cassette switch and work it thoroughly, you made need as much as half hour switching it back and forth to get a result.

De-Oxit is the most common contact cleaner, there are others available.

I have a 490 and 492 but none of them give me that problem, I do have a issue with both regarding Line Input. They both play very low with IPOD, does yours have same issue?
Sorry I couldn't help with other issues, hopefully some one here can. I heard SINISTER has a bunch of FISHERS, maby you can PM him and find an answer.
