help replacing capacitors in WX7

Unread post by desmondo »

Hi, I'm want to try and fix the fact that my wx7 won't connect to the vl-70m via the WX cable. I read the thread where Cloudburst fixed it by replacing 4 capacitors on a circuit board behind the mouthpiece... and thats all i know. Does anyone have any instructions, or a photo, or the relevant pages of the service manual handy? I really would appreciate some guidance. thanks

matt
