    SIGH...Try this...

    You can get the factory service manual here

    And you'll get a screen like this ....
    Look for the links in purple down on the page - by the GREEN ARROW

    That IS my Go-To page...

    It's so easy, even I can do it!

    It's more than likely a dried out cap or two - or even a funky dirty switch.

    When the get packed up and stored they seem to dry out faster - you may have a re-cap on your hands.
