    IT WORKS!!!

    !!!

    I can't thank you all enough.

    For the record ... I removed the brown wire that I'd mistakenly attached to the battery clip. I attached it to the switch, on the next lug from...

    Thanks so much, Vintagekiki. Yes, I can see that one of the sockets on the guitar (the input) is stereo. The guitar was made as an ordinary, quite cheap, Les Paul copy. The effect was added by a...

    vintagekiki - on the reverse the PCB has a large metal area in the middle, with SF-1. That number may continue - there's a wooden post into which the board is screwed, which obscures any other...

    Thanks, Juan Manuel - very helpful to know the size, I was wondering about that! I got it off the internet in the end - should arrive Saturday. Yes, I go to Tottenham Court Road often, and those...

    Great ... I'm going near a hardware shop later, so I will look for suitable wire there. I think the clip contacts are OK, I guess I could buy a new one in case, I doubt they cost much. I'll do the...

    For anyone still following ... I now realise from 52 Bill's helpful list, that the wire I attached to the battery clip was the brown one that's supposed to go to the footswitch.

    I've had my share...

    52 Bill, that's incredibly kind ... thank you for taking the trouble. Since nothing at all is coming out, I'm sort of wondering if my re-attaching of the battery clip was bad.
  9. pdf64 - many thanks! I actually bought the guitar...

    pdf64 - many thanks! I actually bought the guitar all those years ago in Macari's, which was in a different lot than it is now. They said it had a box in the back, but they couldn't charge me for it...
  10. Wow. I'm definitely going to get it repaired...

    Wow. I'm definitely going to get it repaired then. I've found a place over here that sells them in kit form, I might ask if they can help. One of the qs for me was, will it sound as awful now I can...

    dmeek - That photo is strikingly familiar! Brilliant detective work!

    I've also found Google images of Univoxes that have the same labelling on the knobs. I've found a chap who discusses...
  12. 52 Bill - cool! Thank you. It looks as though I...

    52 Bill - cool! Thank you. It looks as though I can't upload any more photos, those two took me very close to the limit, and they won't delete. But ... the controls on top (which I'd hoped to show)...
  13. Oh dear. I can't see a way to delete those two...

    Oh dear. I can't see a way to delete those two files from my upload manager. That means I can't upload any others for 1 hour. Did I say I'm not much good with computers...
  14. OK ... thanks for the suggestions/cautions so...

    OK ... thanks for the suggestions/cautions so far. I've had trouble uploading pics (they keep crashing, and are too big), but I think I may have solved this at last. We have the board, the battery...
  15. Ah ... JM Fahey, thank you - I have a variety of...

    Ah ... JM Fahey, thank you - I have a variety of effect pedals, including fuzz, that work. This is a guitar that I bought in 1979/80, when I was 14. The effect used to work, but now it's broken. I'm...
  16. Thank you eschertron - good point. Yes, I have a...

    Thank you eschertron - good point. Yes, I have a memory of how this one goes, which I stuck to. Then I tried it the other way in case. Same result both times. Usually, if I connect a pedal the wrong...

    Thank you all - my camera battery is recharging, I'll try to get a pic in due course. Yes, I am aware this is not my specialism! If it's a joint that needs resoldering, I can do that. If it's a...
  18. repairing 1970s DIY on-board distortion unit

    Hi everyone. My first guitar, which I've owned since the 70s, has a homemade distortion unit in the back (courtesy the previous owner). It hasnít worked for years. Having recently got a soldering...
