I cannot guarantee the card is 100% functional as I cannot test it, even though it was working when removed from the 388. As I had said in the auction, it is sold as-is. I wish I could test it but I can't. I don't want you to believe it will be a "plug and play " repair. I used to work on the 388 a lot. What kind of problems are you having? If I know where you are, I can recommend a tech. in your area, because I'm in a network of Pro audio techs around the world.
Thanks so much for the reply! So here’s the problem in a nutshell.
The original slot the bad card was plugged into was for Tracks 5 & 7. Track 5 stopped playback what was on the tape, but it would record. No VU action, and no audio through the monitor buss, or even the tape out of that track. So I swapped out the card with the PCB plugged into the tracks 6 & 8 slot. Sure enough track 5 could now do playback but track 6 displayed the playback problem instead of 5. I even went as far as to swap the bad card with the pcb in tracks 1 & 3, and just as I expected, track 1 suffered the anomaly this time. So I know it’s the card that’s the problem. Also, whatever slot it’s plugged into, the bad track VU shows nothing, yet slams into the pin when the transport is put into play. Weird.
Now I’m aware that these boards can be repaired, but if the one you have to sell worked before you pulled it, I would have to surmise that it still does. That being said, if you have any reason to believe it wouldn’t, then of course I’d be a bit leery. Outside of that, replacing mine with one that works is preferable to having to tie it up with some repair place.
If you have some confidence that your card should work, I’d be willing to take my chances. If it doesn’t work,…well…my loss, your gain. At least you’ve made it clear that it’s an As-Is purchase. And I’m a man of my word and very ethical. I keep my aggreements!
Let me know what you think. If I commit to buy, of course I will PayPal you.
Oh…and since there’s some doubt here, a slight discount would be nice, but certainly not conditional. Just sayin’.
Looking forward to your reply.
