Recommend you measure right across the rectifier outputs, don't trust your ground.  It's usually a good idea to float the ground of your power cord when using a scope to measure across two points when one isn't earth ground, either with a ground adapter or by removing the ground pin from the power cord.

Hallo Phil,

Just out of my head: the 8VAC should be rectified and supply the power
for the 7805s. Instead you read 0V. My conclusion:
- dead rectifiers (BOTH are brooken ???)
- bad connection
So do me a favour and measure directly on the outputs of the diodes.

Bugs in my programs? Probably a lot, but none I am aware of.

Hi again,
Sorry it took me so long to get around to measuring the voltages off my
machine...I hope you are all still here.
So here we go (All voltages are approximates):

Between the two transformer tabs that go to the monitor - 16VAC
Pin1 - 8VAC
Pin2 - 0V
Pin4 - 0V
Pin5 - 8VAC

I also took measurements on the 7805's and as they are tied to pin2,
there is no voltage read. 0V.
Pin2 and Pin4 both come from the same place off the huge blue capacitor,
so maybe I can assume this is dead?
Is there anyway to test this capacitor?

Any further advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again
