Quoted from d0n:
Sorry, you lost me at removing the head. So much easier to wait for help or buy proper equipment. When you start removing things, you run the risk of the game not working the same when you reconnect everything
I bought a machine once that didn't work when I went to look at to purchase. ended up paying $100 for it because it didn't work. I took the head off to transport. got it home and put the head back on, plugged all the jones connectors back in, turned it on and had a fully functioning machine....found out that many problems on em's are bad connections and that's it.
....found same problems on ss's also.
