1991 VideoMovie video camera viewfinder not working

Texto:

I recently got a 1991 JVC GR-303U VHS-C VideoMovie video camera. It has numerous issues, but if I can get the viewfinder working, I believe I can fix the other issues. I can turn the camera on and off, eject the tape, etc, but the display never starts. I have a few ideas, so I'll list them off.

1. Not enough power. I don't have a 9.6V PSU lying aroundIt has numerous issues, but if I have a 9.5V one with more amperage andcan get the same polarity. Ifviewfinder working, I do anything that would take an adequate amount of power, it complains about the lack of a battery. Perhapsbelieve I can fix the .1V is extremely important?other issues.

2. Bad capacitors. This is 1991 after all. The bad capacitor plague was startingI can turn the camera on and off, eject the tape, etc, but the display never starts. I found a working solution to power it, so that shouldn't be the issue.

3. Shoddy connections. Again. 1991. 26 years for partsI should also mention that the camera's tape drive seems to oxidize, corrode, and degrade in other ways.be a little... off. Does the tape drive use belts on this particular camera?

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I'm hoping someone here knows the answer, or, at the very least, the location of a free service manual, because I'm totally lost at this point.
