Do you mean to say that when the tech installed the record unit in your upright, that it never worked, even when the tech was there, or that it failed right after that?!?

If it really never function at any time, I wonder if something was not hooked up correctly? Since you mentioned switching the bass driver board yourself, I gather you are somewhat mechanically/electrically inclined... If you have a circuit diagram, see if you can determine that all the electrical connections are correct. If all appears correct, then......

I would recommend getting hold of a tech in your area that used to install Pianocorders that may still have a garage full of new and used parts.

First see if all the electrical connections are correct on the present system. If so, then replace the record board with another, known to be good, to see if that corrects the problem.

Then again, maybe it could be high resistance in the record/play switching. You could try switching back and forth between record and play a few dozen times and see if it cleans the switch......

If you have a circuit diagram and a meter, you could open up the deck and check those switch connections for continuity. Maybe a blast of contact cleaner would help. It's sort of a semi enclosed switch.
