Not good. The microprocessor in those things are so touchy.  Going low volt did not corrupt the radio. it was the surge from the jump start. But you probably knew that.

Being that I have not serviced many of these I also know way to restore the cpu other than factory return.

First welcome to the site.

This sounds like a known issue with the radio in question.
Have a good look at the PLL board.  It is the smaller board sitting in the can that is attached to the chassis on one side.
You will need to unplug this board and remove it from the mount. Look closely for weak solder joints. They are there.
Also look for Sony Bond glue. This is a beige color glue that was used to hold parts down.  It has probably turned dark brown by now.
This stuff is very conductive and causes shorts.

I understand what you said about the capacitors.  But to be really sure you have to remove them and see if they leaked onto the board.

You can get the service manual here:

Let us know what you find.

Welcome to the forum.
Thanks for the intro. Sounds like you been around the block quite a bit.  I always love hearing others story.
So thanks for sharing that.

The forum has a lot of members, but slow to post.  Seems no one wants to engage is good electronic talks and rag chew on the forums anymore.  A bit different from the big forums where they start shouting " get off my lawn" lol.
Anyway I am trying to get this place back up and running so sit back and have fun.

Great meeting you.

Hi Tony,
Welcome to the forums.
Been busy here and just got a chance to check in today.  It is a little slow here on the site. Lots of folks reading but not posting.

Thanks for stepping in and introducing yourself.

Welcome. Thanks for sharing and please keep us updated on the process.
I have been planning a video lesson on the pine board project but trying to get all the  stuff sorted out. And time.
You will love that 101 once it is done.

If you take another radio on the same channel can you hear it in the receiver when you key up the bad radio?
