Hohner Cembalet repair

My beloved Hohner Cembalet I has gone silent, all of a sudden.

Here we go with a few pics i took for reference of the main board.

They may help someone else whos trying to fix his Cembalet.. I hope.

Schem and user manual (in kraut):

Update: the Cembalet healed itself and now it works great. I did not have to do anything to it, it just works again, magic, bang.

A friend who’s an electronic repairer said that the most important part to watch out for is the inductor (Spule in german), as it’s custom wound to specs for this instrument.
