Ok on my Crosley i noticed some tar / goo. Has leaked out of the transformer.
Somebody must of tried to play it with a disconnected electrolytic cap i found.
I have ordered all the caps . Do you think the trans is fried?
It is not a lot of goo. Rolling Eyes
Thanks Denver. Very Happy

If i remember correctly an easy way to test the transformer is to remove all the tubes and power it up slowly. If there is no smoke or smell the transformer should be OK. This is only a test for the transformer.

You may be able to tell if it's ok by removing all the and any dial lights and plugging it into a dim bulb tester.If the transformer is good the bulb should not light, but if it's bad the bulb will come on at full brightness.
