John, what to do with your DX-100 has a lot to do with how it has been
stored. Transformers are not a common problem in the DX 100 as they
are the potted type and less subject to moisture damage.
Replacement of power supply electrolytiics is most common problem.
These rigs sit around not in use for long periods causes the
capacitors to go bad. There are a few in the audio section to check as
well. Good luck and have fun! Russ
